Dec 19, 2016 · Video Q&A about Pituitary Tumors in Brain Tumor

I don’t see anything playing?

Nov 7, 2016 · Chiari Malformation type1, Addison's Disease, Steroid-induced diabetes in Brain & Nervous System

I was treated at the Mayo Clinic and had a Pituitary Adenoma (tumor) removed that was secreting ACTH and causing Cushings due to 6x more cortisol than normal being secreted at all times. After the tumor was removed the cortisol dropped to 1 and I had Addison’s disease. They had scooped all the cells from my posterior pituitary. They gave me IV solu-Medrol in the hospital and when I was released the put me on 20mg tapered dosage of hydrocortisone (10 2x per day- 1 at 8am and 1 at 2pm) the timing of the dosage was very important. Over the course of 3 months, I tapered off completely and had severe joint and connective tissue pain for 6 months, then I started testosterone replacement therapy with medical marijuana and tapered off of Prozac, adderrall, and vyvanse. 2 months after tapering off of the psycho Meds the connective tissue pain, mood swings and headaches went away. I limited my caffeine intake to 1 cup of coffee and half a Zyrtec D (antihistamine-stimulant) with double dose of Vitamin B complex and that took care of everything. I tapered off the Marijuana over about a month and then it Took me 3 months of diet and exercise to get to a manageable weight and lose about 20lbs. I can’t thank the Mayo Clinic enough. What an incredible experience I will never forget, so efficient, so welcoming, so precise!

I had these symptoms and was on methylprednisone after surgery to treat Addison’s disease then was switched to 15 mg of hydrocortisone bid then tapered to alternating 10 mg and 15 mg every other day then For 2 weeks then I went down to 10mg and 7.5 mg every other day for 2 weeks, then to only 5mg of hydracortisone for 2 weeks then I tapered down to 5mg and 2.5 mg alternating every other day for 2 weeks, then I stayed on 2.5mg for 3 weeks then I tapered to half 2.5 mg tablet 1.75 mg) and full 2.5 mg tablet every other day, then went down to 1.75mg everyday, and then every other day for two weeks, then I stopped. I still had major pain and my hip/back started acting up so I received a steroid/cortisone injection in my hip abductor region and started taking over the counter Zyrtec – D 12hr and Naproxen 500mg X 2/day. This got rid of all the joint aches I had.

Diane, yes this protocol did work, but you need to do a vegetable juice cleanse

Try Monistat 7 for the yeast infection in conjunction with a daily vinegar an oil douche. Start a 24 HR liquid diet followed by an herbal coffee enema and 1/2 cup of yogurt twice per day for 7 days. This will bring you back to normal, if no difference is noticed after 1 week, seek colonic hydro therapy and a 2 week juice diet.
