Topics Discussed in this Episode:

  • Some important tests to ask for when going to your doctor
  • Adrenal fatigue and its symptoms
  • What you can do to heal your adrenals
  • Managing inflammation and getting your health back on track
  • Dealing with doubts and fears when it comes to your business


Key Takeaways:

  • The more we can clear out from our body, the more we can show up in a true, authentic, powerful way; the more we can connect to our intuition and our gut, and start acknowledging the things that feel right and don’t feel right. From there, we can start to make clear decisions and ask the right questions.
  • Some key tests to ask for when you see your doctor:
  • A ferritin test
  • A vitamin D test
  • The hs-CRP test
  • A full metabolic panel
  • A full thyroid panel
  • The DUTCH test
  • Roughly 70% to 80% of doctor visits are stress-related conditions.
  • The number one essential to healing your adrenals is sleep. And it’s the number one thing for overall hormonal health.
  • The big three triggers for inflammation are gluten, dairy, and sugar.
  • When doing an elimination diet, don’t just get hung up on the stuff that you can’t have. Think about all the things that you can have and bring them into the diet.


Action Steps:

  • Work on yourself, and work through the fears and anxieties and how you’re showing up in the world. Work on how you’re communicating and connecting with people. 
  • Work on healing your adrenals if you’re experiencing adrenal fatigue:
  • Practice relaxation and meditation techniques.
  • Use an infrared sauna.
  • Get enough sleep.
  • Ditch the sugar and the caffeine.
  • What to do to manage inflammation:
  • Eliminate gluten, dairy, and sugar from your diet.
  • Supplement with omega-3s.
  • Hyperhydrate. Drink at least 3 liters of water a day.
  • Accept the fears and doubts that you have around your business. If you don’t, building your business is going to be unenjoyable.

“It is so vital, now more than ever, for us to be healthy. And I don’t just mean from a health and hormones and nutrition perspective — that is so key. But from a mental health standpoint, from a personal growth standpoint, it is so important for us to work on ourselves.”


“The more successful version of you, the real you, requires that you let go of who you are now.”
