Cushing's Disease Natural Remedies

An overproduction of cortisol brings on Cushing’s disease. Symptoms include muscle wasting, fatigue, moon face, buffalo hump on upper back, fat on abdomen, thin bones, diabetes, fatigue, sleep, depression, and emotional problems. Other symptoms of Cushing’s are swollen eyelids, skin thinning, loss of menstrual periods, and increased thirst and urine. Causes may include pituitary or adrenal tumors, or cortisone therapy for arthritis or asthma.

Use natural therapies only with doctor’s medications. Modern medicine uses pituitary surgery or medications (side effects), but may be life-saving.

Naturally, help the body to reduce tumors and help normalize body chemistry. Always remove tobacco, alcohol, coffee, black tea and sodas to let the body have the best chance to heal itself. Use Stress Multi-Vitamins from New chapter for optimal nutrition.

Disclaimer: some drugs and herbs should not be combined.

Natural Healing Protocol: Combining supplements will do more to support your body's ability to function properly than using just one. Use the following remedies for best results -- your ability to heal will depend on the severity and length of time your symptoms have been present.
