“[December 6, 2010] I would like to update you on my success in recovery. My sex drive is getting very strong, also everything else is coming flooding back, I am 100% at times dropping to 90% at other times, I have been taking LICORICE ROOT FOR A FEW MONTHS, IT TOOK ALMOST 3 MONTHS TO START TO NOTICE CHANGES. I kept telling myself I cannot be damaged these drugs are tested on millions. Also I knew it wasn’t just the sex drive, I never got excited, I never got thrilled, I never got scared, goosebumps or heavy sweating. I used to be quite nervous and sweat alot, all this had gone. As we both know norepinephrine plays a massive part, its just about how do we get the adrenal glands working again. LICORICE ROOT ITS THE NEXT BEST THING TO A MIRACLE!!!!!!!!!! I am being 100% serious, thank God, I really thought I was stuck in a life of anhedonia, with no hope. just lay there with no feelings, no enjoyment. Just feeling very flat and cold. But now its back, sorry to be graphic but i feel like my testicles are alive again, i feel very sexual, its like when you are full of adrenaline the testes are filled with life and so is the brain. I think it has to do with adrenaline and noradrenaline. When I am nervous my heart now races once again, I can sleep easily through the night and love my sleep, I also enjoy exercising and being active. This is a gift a gift of the highest order. It is adrenaline and noradrenaline that drives our brains and our bodies. I couldn’t not share this. Finally I am pretty sure this is the solid cure for PSSD and Anhedonia. Your brain is fine, you’ve got adrenal fatigue and LICORICE ROOT SUPPLEMENT is one of the only ways to heal. I’ll tell you now if you start taking it you will notice effects, but don’t go mad be ve3ry patient. Take no more than one 450mg capsule a day, never take 2. This will gradually ehqal your adrenal glands and you will make a full recovery. Make sure you take for at least 6 months before giving up on it. Also if you are getting anxious and feeling depressed lower the frequency to maybe 5 a week or less, but stick with it low dose, every day, It’s taken me at least 3 months to get my sex drive back, you may have to endure some anxiety at first, but trust me its worth it. I feel normal and functional again, thank god, I really couldn’t go on much longer. Please give it a try, and be very patient expect it could take months to work as its a slow healing process, to see if you will respond ask yourself: do you sweat less? do you feel your heart racing less when you are anxious? do you feel disconnected from your body? do your testes feel dead? do you lack excitement? do you like thrill? do you never feel like going on a run and releasing your energy. If so you almost certainly have some form of adrenal fatigue, that will be all and thank God for Licorice root extract. Also I have taken small quantities of kudzu root to reduce serotonin, but only a small bit, I have taken no medicine for 2 months not a single tablet, I feel sorry for people going through what I’ve been through. SSRI’s + depression = adrenal fatigue, please go and get better. Thanks.
One last note, please ride through the ups and downs of starting licorice root, keep persevering and you will succeed!”
