Real Testimonials

"I am half way through Dr. Wilson’s Adrenal Fatigue book and all I can say is "WOW" - has somebody been following me around and making notes for the past 20 years!! The more I read the book the more the whole picture comes together. I had every test under the sun, and they all came back "perfect". One doctor said to me that "you’re so healthy, we should bottle you’re blood". My continuing fatigue was put down to grief, and I was told that I had to "deal with it". I was prescribed Prozac and other types of antidepressants, which didn’t agree with me. I can’t thank you enough for showing me the Adrenal Fatigue book. I’m really looking forward to starting on the adrenal fatigue program, can’t wait. Thanks," - Kaye (38yrs) Wellington, New Zealand.
