Endocrine deterioration, especially adrenal gland insufficiency, resulted in this patient being unable to cope with the stresses of everyday life.
The noted adrenal gland insufficiency markedly impairs general metabolism, or "oxidation rate" as it is more specifically known, resulting in an increase in blood plasma alkalinity, and therefore calcium becomes unavailable as a salt, and stone formation is common.
Experimental mice showed signs of shock (coldness, collapse, tachycardia, sweating) such as it has been described in human adrenal gland insufficiency
. The macroscopic aspects of adrenal glands were as follows: controls showed glands of pink normal aspect and weight.
Copper water pipes, copper sulphate algaecides and pesticides, and the close-to-epidemic adrenal gland insufficiency
and immune system suppression in this country suggest the time has arrived.
