I've used licorice root with great success as a nutritional adjunct to chiropractic care for depressed adrenal function. It works as well as, or better than, bovine adrenal concentrates, doesn't offend my vegan patients, and is cost effective, to boot. The only drawback I've seen is that it gives about 10% of my patients heartburn, even the ones who don't have hiatial problems.
