Are you tired and wired? Here’s how to heal adrenal fatigue.
This “stress hormone” is essential for energy and health, but when it’s out of balance, you are, too. Learn how to manage cortisol to keep inflammation, cravings, and belly fat at bay.

I had a chance to meet with the “thyroid whisperer” Andrea Beaman and learn some techniques that she uses to help her clients get their thyroid into balance. As a holistic health coach, she finds that diet is a great place to start but for complete healing you have to go much deeper. Andrea’s journey started with her own thyroid problems, which she was able to heal naturally with diet, lifestyle and mega-doses of self-care. But the catch is -- it didn’t happen overnight. It took 2 full years to get back into balance. In that time she swung from hyperthyroid to Hashimoto’s, and hypothyroid and then finally came into balance.
