Registration open: Restore Your Adrenals teleclasses

Your adrenals are foundational to, well, just about everything. How you produce adrenal hormones even affects your thoughts, including how you think about…yourself.

If you have a healthy hormonal foundation, it’s possible to have a healthy hormonal house.

According to many in the functional medicine community, if you continue to suffer from adrenal dysfunction, it will be difficult – some say impossible – to get a handle on:

  • Hashimoto’s – or any autoimmunity
  • Blood sugar
  • Sleep regulation
  • Digestive health
  • Reproductive hormone balance, which can have a significant impact on fertility and how you move through peri/menopause

It’s true. Your adrenals have THAT far-reaching of an influence on your health and wellbeing.

They’re command central.

Do your adrenals need some restoration? Is it time to hit the reset button?

As I tell my clients, adrenal dysfunction is the most common hormonal imbalance, but it’s the most straightforward to address. Really.

I’m so excited to announce that our Restore Your Adrenals class series begins in two weeks.

If you join us, you’ll be changed, in the best ways possible.

With adrenal restoration, I’m often asked:

1. “How do I eat?”
2. “How do I supplement?”
3. “I know there’s a big lifestyle component to nourishing my adrenals. Aside from eating and supplementing, what else needs to change?”

I’m going to address all of this – and so much more.

You’re in the right place if you:

  • Are tired, but also feel “wired” much of the time (monkey mind, anyone?)
  • Need – like really need – caffeine and chocolate to get through the day
  • Are more reactive than you used to be – you wish things could roll of your back more easily
  • Are carrying extra weight around your midsection – and it ain’t comin’ off (cortisol, one of our adrenal hormones, is “the belly fat hormone”)
  • Can’t sleep – maybe you get a second wind in the late evening, can’t get to sleep, and then wake at night and can’t get back to sleep
  • Feel like crap in the morning (who’s going to feel rested with the above scenario going on?)
  • Succumb to a lot of negative self-talk and feel like you’re not “enough”
  • Can’t quite get a handle on your hypothyroidism/Hashimoto’s
  • Feel like you’re in “survival mode”
  • Are overwhelmed and can’t escape the never-ending to-do list
  • If you identify with any of this, please join us. 

This class series is going to reframe EVERYTHING.




How do you know you have it ? I asked my doctor to test me for it and he said no. He said it's sleep apnea . Didn't really listen to what I was saying. 

Hi Nadine, do you identify with many of the symptoms listed? Granted, many of them overlap with low thyroid function. But if you recognize yourself here or here, then it’s likely time to address your adrenals.

An ASI, or adrenal stress index, is the best way to test. You can order it on your own here. In the near-term, you can do a pupil test at home. 

You need to be in a darkened room with a mirror. From the side (not the front), shine a flashlight towards your pupils and hold for about a minute. Observe your pupils. With healthy adrenals, your pupils will constrict, and will stay small the entire time you shine the light. With adrenal dysfunction, your pupils will get small, but within 30 seconds, will enlarge or obviously flutter in their attempt to stay constricted. This happens because adrenal insufficiency can also result in low aldosterone, which causes a lack of proper amounts of sodium and an abundance of potassium, causing the sphincter muscles of your eye to be weak and to dilate in response to light. 

Lastly, you can still enroll in my Restore Your Adrenals class series by going here. We had the first class last night, but everyone gets the recordings and transcripts of the classes, including Action Guides. Warmly, Jill
