Addison's Disease is a disease of the Hormones.
When the Adrenal Glands produce inadequate amount of certain hormones (Cristol and Aldosterone) that are required by the body it is Addison's Disease.
The Adrenal Gland produces a number of steroid hormones to control the various body functions.

Adrenal Gland is a part of the endocrine Gland. It is like a small pyramid located at the top of the Kidneys. Adrenal cortex is the outer part of the Adrenal Gland. It produces steroid hormones which are Cortisol and Aldosterone.

The functions of Cristol Hormone are
To deal with stress.
To regulate the Blood Pressure.
To regulate the Blood Circulation.

The functions of Aldosterone Hormone are
To regulate the levels of Salt and Potassium.
To regulate the Blood pressure.

The damaged Adrenal Glands disrupt the production of the hormones. It leads to the impairment of the other body functions.

Causes of Addison's Disease
Internal Bleeding
Damage to the Adrenal Gland
Low activity of Adrenal Gland
Impairment of the Auto Immune System
Fungal infections to the Adrenal Gland
Inadequate secretion of hormones by the adrenal cortex

Materia Medica for Addison's Disease

Addison's Disease General

One workable course of action might be to address the metabolism, rather than the organ. In that case the most suited Adaptogen should be administered. Or, shall we say a course of Adaptogens, like Green tea, Turmeric, Reishi mushroom, Siberian ginseng, Astragalus, Echinacea, Ashwagandha. Again the pathological personality of the patient must be kept in mind. All Adaptogens are not suited to all patients. All Adaptogens are not good in all seasons. Siberean Ginseng will not do in summer.
Single Herb

Liquorice ( Mulethi ) for Addison's Disease

Licorice Root exerts a positive effect on the prognosis of Adrenal Insufficiency as in Addison’s Disease. There may be a near complete adrenal exhaustion.
Licorice Root is an excellent concomitant with a small amount of cortisone. In the orthodox treatment the dose of Cortisone is progressively increased. Sometimes this is counterproductive. However, a small amount of Licorice Root is a very attractive alternative. Considerably less cortisone becomes much more effective when combined with Liquorice root.
Prepare a decoction of Liquorice's root. Drink one cup two times a day.
Or: Take two tablets of Liquorice ( Mulethi ) two times a day.
