Many of us eat liver and thymus, some of us heart, but what about adrenals and/or testicles?
One of the more popular supplements is the TG100 glandulars by Allergy research group, which contains a few different glands.Once we get past the squirmishness it seems like eating the real deal could be a pretty good fix for adrenal fatigue.
Anyone know about these?
I haven't looked into TG100 specifically, but I've been taking (a) Now Foods liver powder, (b) Standard Process Symplex M, (c) Standard Process Hypothalamus PMG, (d) Natural Sources Raw Thyroid Glandular, (e) Natural Sources Raw Multiple Glandular, and (f) Allergy Research Group ImmoPlex Glandular.
I think there's something to the adage that like nourishes like. I figure the hypothalamus supplement may help with leptin sensitivity, the thyroid supplement may help boost metabolism, Symplex M may help with production of growth hormone and testosterone, and the multiple glandulars may just kind of help with everything in general.
They're all fairly cheap, so it's worth a shot. (And the doses are all really small compared to eating the actual glands, so I doubt there's any danger of adverse effects.)
This podcast on the subject is worth listening to.
Cooking something that is chiefly a source of vitamin c at any temperature is a bad idea and would defeat the purpose.
Sliver it as much as possible and coat it in lemon juice, make it sushi. That it contains so much vitamin c would probably eliminate any sickening effects of having it raw. Proper carnivores have acidic saliva that performs this task. We though certainly are strange organisms.
You should tell your farmer and make a statement that you have no contract with the FDA or interest in it's unqualified policy and belief based regulation only with the farmer and take all legal responsibility and liability for any damages to your person from the sale, the FDA does not have the right at all to enforce what they do unless the individual allows it. Will help if you let your farmer know that the FDA is basically a criminal mob that run extortion rackets on businesses if he doesn't already know.
I asked my farmer for various glands: adrenal, thymus, thyroid and pituitary. He reported back to me last Saturday that the FDA inspector said no. I love to hear of an example in the US where people are getting adrenal glands passed through inspection.
Just read an interesting anecdote about adrenal glands the other day: "The Indians of Canada revealed to Dr. Price that the adrenal glands in the moose prevented scurvy. When an animal was killed, the adrenal gland and its fat were cut up and shared with all members of the tribe."
What an interesting discussion here. I have adrenal fatigue and spent two years of my life on the couch before seeking medication. Of course the FDA has issues with this. It's probably available outside of the U.S. and can be imported without breaking any laws (but I am not sure of that). If it is an issue with the FDA and not DEA and you are not selling it but keeping it for yourself it should be fine to order some sort of freeze dried powdered capsulated version. Customs agents are much too busy looking for other things. I'm no lawyer so don't take my word for it.
