Good question. There is so much that mainstream medicine doesn't know how to address and adrenals/thyroids is another one besides:
--infertility, impotence, MOOBIES (boobs on men), premature hair loss or grey/white, multiple sclerosis, heartburn/GERD, caries/cavities, dental disease (ala Weston A Price), hypertension, hypothyroidism, T2DM (diabetes), heart disease, cancer, IBS, indigestion, gallbladder disease, kidney stones, depression, bipolar, autism, ADHD, etc
--toxicity and obesogens like the endocrine disruption from gluten, n-6 pufas, heavy metals, GMO 'products', xenoestrogens, plastics, high fructose corn syrup, pesticides, etc
--true cause of autoimmune disorders and 99% of western civilization diseases is related to the GUT and subsequent permeability and immune effects...
