    I have a question for Dr. O about Maca and Noni.  I have Hashimotos and am a few months into a grain free diet.  I’m also 2 months into avoiding my ELISA allergens and supplementing with grain free supplements per the Spectracell test.

    I still have symptoms of adrenal fatigue, mainly in the form of low hormone levels (i.e. DHEA among others) and lightheadedness.  I’ve taken Maca powder and I like it but I don’t notice a huge difference. 

     

    My question is, could I still have systemic inflammation that is tiring my adrenals, and if so, could Noni Juice help?  I’ve heard it is a strong anti-inflammatory.

     

    I’d also like Dr. O’s thoughts on Maca.  I have read that it only helps as long as you take it.  I hate stuff like that cause it keeps you dependent on it.

     

    Thanks!

    I would be less apt to use Maca as a therapeutic tool and more apt to further investigate other components of your condition.  Have you had iodine levels checked?

    Are you applying all of the components from the following video?

    If not, do these things first and let me know how you are feeling.

    All the best,

    Dr. O
