Adrenal exhaustion


#1

Has anyone wondered about the effect on the autonomous nervous system of having so little digestion take place? Digestion is strongly associated with parasympathetic nervous activity, with little digestive process going on, would it be possible to end up with adrenal exhaustion due to overuse of the sympathetic nervous system?


#2

I guess the question would be what sort of symptoms are indicative of adrenal exhaustion, and how long would they take to be ‘obvious.’ There are a lot on here that have been on diy soylent for at least a month with little ill effects.

Any tests or other indicators for such an effect?
