Herbal Adrenal caps for acne......

Posted by help on March 26, 2002 at 06:29:04:

Dr. Stoll i have had excellent results with my acne with the help of two drugs.
Wellbutrin helped me alot but i didn't see a complete 100 %remission of the acne until I started taking adrenal caps by solaray. These are over the counter and contain a proprietary blens of normal stress erbal ingredients like gotu kola,licorice, and panax ginseng but the main ingredient adreanl (bovine) i believe is what finally caused my acne to stop.. I actually feel really good also and i dont fully think that is a result from wellbutrin(since i've been taking it for a few months) and because my acne is gone. I just started feeling wonderful since the adrenal caps. I know that part of the adrenal gland helps to promote epinephrine and norepinenphrine neurotransmitters.. Could this be the cause?
Or is it it possible that the stress was takin off the hypothalamus since the adrenal ,pituitary,hypothalamus, and limbic system have a very intimate connection.
I had a brain scan done with latest technology of nuclear medicine called spect(single photon emission computed tomogrophy) and it showed a dramatic increase of activity in my limbic system which in general terms means depression. Is it possible that this limbic system overactivity caused the hypothalamus to be overactive/overwhelmed as well ?
I took accutane one and a half times...(one full treatment and a half treatment since i couldnt handle it .accutane caused mood disorders/major depression/ and severe anxiety.
Is it possible that acne is caused by adrenal dysfunction and it's effect on the hypothalamus/pituitary but more importantly the limbic system overall?
any feedback is greatly appreciated
thanks

Great!

How did it take you to see significant results after you started taking the "adrenal caps"?

Would you list ingredients in them?

Please describe other benefits you noticed.

ingredients:
adrenal (bovine) 340mg
Proprietory blend: 435 mg
gotu kola
licorice root
siberian ginseng
clove
I saw results within the first few days.
I also take wellbutrin at 150mg twice a day
and L-tyrosine at 500mg twice a day which could help also.
The results i saw were increased energy, happier mood, better concentration ( which is why i started taking it cause i was reading amateur research on the adrenal glands and people with ADD having an ineffieciency) so it helped add symptoms dramatically but that could again also be due to the accompanying wellbutrin.
And it cleared my acne 100%...
I've noticed if i miss a day i'll break out..
hope this helps

Dr. Stoll what do you think about this ?

Having an "overactive limbic system" can put tremendous stress on the hypothalamus. An overactive limbic system is clinically/generally recognized as depression on a spect(single photon emission computed tomography) scan. By helping to increase epinephrine and norepinephrine neurotransmitters it calms the limbic system which helps the hypothalamus operate normally.
All of these sections of your brain have an intimate connection.
Wouldn't you agree that if your hypothalamus is chronicly overstimulated from chronic anxiety or depression that it would deplete the adrenal glands because it would be constatnly invoking norepi and epi ?
Traditional psychiatry is to target and raise the levels of these nuerotransmitters to calm overactivity in the limbic system. Effexor and wellbutrin have a somehwat effect.

Hi, Help.

I HOPE I have made it abundantly clear that I have found the basic cause of acne to come from the chronic stress response of the hypothalamus and the solution is to remove that effect.

Your experience just proves it in another way. My problem with what you have done is not that it is not effective OR that it is dangerous (which I do not believe it is) but that it will be temporary.

My suggestion, while you are still clear, is to do the wellness and EFAs that will finally get your system back on track without the acne.

Go to the glossary for any unfamiliar terms.

How many caps did you take per day? With food? Between meals? Thanks.
