3 days at an endocrine seminar had me rethinking what I knew about the body and how it all works together. In this episode, I cover hormone balancing tips the role of blood sugar regulation, the importance of fish oil, detoxing the liver and why you need a good gut microbiome.

If you’re someone who has always performed at a very high level but suddenly find yourself struggling, it may be your hormones. I spent a weekend at a workshop which really taught me a lot about it. This is something that I always took for granted, but after making a few small changes to my lifestyle have seen amazing results!  In this episode, I’ll share 4 important things I learned that are helping me perform at my peak…and perhaps they’ll help you as well.
