I’m delighted to connect with Dr. Izabella Wentz today! She is a PharmD, an internationally acclaimed thyroid specialist, and a licensed pharmacist who has dedicated her career to addressing the root causes of autoimmune thyroid disease. She is also the author of three books. Her most recent book is The Adrenal Transformation Protocol.

Dr. Wentz joins me to dive into how to identify what is going on with our adrenal health and why adrenal issues tend to occur along with thyroid issues. We speak about her background and how it influenced her life’s work, the myth of adrenal fatigue, and HPA dysfunction. We also discuss the physiology of the adrenals, acute versus chronic stress, signs of a dysregulated HPA axis, lifestyle, the impact of trauma, and how Dr. Wentz’s protocol works.

IN THIS EPISODE YOU WILL LEARN:

  • Dr. Wentz explains what led her to write The Adrenal Protocol.
  • What happens in the body when we experience significant amounts of fatigue?
  • How the physical impact of acute stress differs from that of chronic stress.
  • Symptoms of adrenal dysfunction (other than chronic fatigue).
  • How does sleep apnea tie to Hashimoto’s and mitochondrial health?
  • Lifestyle factors that may contribute to adrenal fatigue.
  • Adaptogens and supplements that can assist in balancing cortisol levels.
  • How to know when to cut back on exercise.
  • Foods that support thyroid and adrenal health, and foods that could negatively impact thyroid and adrenal health.
  • What is molecular mimicry?
  • How does trauma impact adrenal health?
  • Dr. Wentz talks about her latest book, The Adrenal Transformation Protocol.
  • Something you can do right now to improve your adrenal health.
