Getting cortisol can be a challenge, unless you are a patient of mine or have had a consultation with me within the past year. In that case, your biggest challenge will be picking up the phone, calling me, and asking me to prescribe cortisol for you. I will be glad to do so. I might even do it if I haven't seen you within the past year: that would depend on the circumstances of your situation.
Everything I write in this blog is in the educational model and not the medical model. I do not and cannot prescribe for or take medical responsibility for people I have not examined, except in extremely unusual circumstances. In the medical model I do take medical responsibility for my patient. In the educational model I tell you what in my experience works best in response to various health challenges. It is in your responsibility to decide whether you will try the intervention or not. It is certainly best to do this in consultation with a physician who is knowledgeable about the intervention, or at least open to consulting with you if you try it. In the past, such physicians have been extremely scarce, but in the last year I've been hearing about more and more who are willing to work with patients using natural healing approaches. If you don't know such a physician, the best place to look is the doctor finder page on the American College for the Advancement of Medicine website, http://www.acam.org/.
I can't guarantee you will find a physician willing to work with you and prescribe cortisol for you so that you can use Dr. Jeffries' protocol if you need to, but I do believe this is the best place to start. If you don't find what you're looking for, I suggest that you set and hold the intent to find the right physician for you. Intent firmly set and tenaciously held has the most remarkable power to open doors in what appeared to be blank walls. Just be sure you follow every lead that comes up. There is an ancient saying that I have seen proven true time after time: "When the student is ready the teacher will appear."
An important part of Dr. Jefferies' protocol is to take a high potency multiple vitamin and mineral supplement when using the protocol. Of course I recommend that most people take a high potency multiple item and mineral supplement all the time. Please review my recommendations, which you can reach by clicking the multiple vitamin and mineral supplement section on the navigation bar of this blog.
It is important to start the Protocol as soon as you are sure you are getting sick. Once you start, if you get worse or are not nearly symptom-free in 48 hours, you should seek immediate medical attention if you are not already under medical care. If you have a bacterial infection, you'll probably need an antibiotic in addition to the cortisol.
But wait, there's more! Next blog: using Dr. Jeffries' protocol for other infections and what to do if you really can't get cortisol.
