If we think it is a heavy metal then we’ll do a special type of heavy metals test done through a 24 hour urine collection.
But for all of the things I was doing right, my health was still spiraling downward. Last year, I sought help from a holistic doctor- Dr. So I consider him to be qualified to answer my questions and yours.
I knew that my typical bloodwork would again be “normal” and that I’d get a shrug and an offer for anti-depressants from a regular doctor. Rob at Alternacare, and he opened my eyes to the *real* issue with adrenal fatigue. Rob a couple weeks ago here on my blog, and he answered my questions about what the difference is between a “regular” [allopathic] doctor, and a holistic doctor. Rob and I sit down and chat about adrenal fatigue…is it a real thing? I hope you’re as interested as I am in this topic, and many, many thanks to Dr.
