Topics Discussed in this Episode:

  • Understanding amenorrhea and taking the steps towards healing
  • Recovering from chronic Lyme disease
  • Working in the conventional health system and realizing its limitations when it comes to supporting chronic diseases
  • Creating WellBe and bridging the gap between the health care system and the wellness movement


Key Takeaways:

  • The kind of medicine that should be practiced today is  not built into the current insurance model (at least in the US).
  • If you want quality practitioners and doctors who are going to roll up their sleeves and do the hard work with you to figure out what’s going on and help you heal, you have to understand that it takes time to investigate the root cause of your symptoms, and it’s currently outside of the insurance model in the US.
  • Your diet and the condition of your gut are hugely connected to your hormones.
  • When healthcare and wellness finally come together, we’ll be able to reverse the chronic disease epidemic.
  • The only way you can have real healing is to get the body to a place where it can heal itself and utilize the incredible power of the immune system.


Action Steps:

  • Be your own advocate when it comes to your health and do some research before you see a conventional medicine practitioner.
  • Make sure your home is optimized for health. Throw out and replace everything toxic in your home and in your everyday habits.


Adrienne said:

“I know so many people with means and education who are still making terrible decisions about their health every single day.”

“I need to spread awareness and education before I can start talking to people about the actionable steps of now making these changes or helping them further.”
