The thyroid and adrenals work together to balance metabolism and energy. Addressing the adrenals is critical in managing hypothyroidism (and autoimmunity), as you can’t simply isolate the thyroid. This is due, in part, to the fact that hypothyroidism is often secondary to adrenal dysfunction. If your adrenals are working overtime or in a state of depletion, your thyroid will suffer and if your thyroid isn’t working up to par, your adrenals can take a further hit. This ebook explains this important relationship, how to nourish both systems, and how to experience a true, positive feed-forward cycle for optimal health.
Jill and her co-author, Lisa Markley, MS, RDN, have created a tour de force‑a work of art and a work of science. The Essential Thyroid Cookbook is masterfully written and will support you for a lifetime of peak thyroid function no matter where you currently are on your wellness journey.
For anyone who has ever wanted to cook confidently for optimal thyroid and immune health, this is your guide. The Essential Thyroid Cookbook belongs on the shelf in every kitchen of anyone diagnosed with hypothyroidism or Hashimoto’s.

Labeling on our foods, including nutritional facts panels, ingredient lists, and front-of-pack seals and symbols, are intended to inform consumers, enabling us to make conscientious choices.

The glut of eco labels on food can breed confusion for many. These labels claim to be good for you and the environment, but how do you know if the products are delivering on their promises? How do you know when you’re being hoodwinked and when you can trust labels on food packaging? Is organic really the gold standard? Jill breaks it all down.
Awareness of and interest in food issues is at an all time high.

Let Jill show you how to eat yourself happy.
