Episode Summary

Stress. We all experience it. Taking on too much. Biting off more than you can chew. Putting other peoples’ needs before your own too often. 

It’s an inevitable component of life. In fact, 98% of people report to their doctors that they have stress in their lives. But what we don’t realize is sometimes this stress is due to underlying physiological conditions. 

Thyroid dysfunction– especially hypothyroidism– is almost always connected to an adrenal issue. And since the adrenal gland produces  the stress hormone cortisol, this means low thyroid function goes hand in hand with experiencing chronic stress. 

But– there are ways we can support our bodies and adrenal function to optimize our health even with a chronic condition like hypothyroidism. So if you’re ready to show up for loved ones and yourself, or work on projects you’re passionate about while feeling energized and minimally stressed– this is an episode you won’t want to miss!

Integrative pharmacist and best-selling author Dr. Izabella Wentz joins me to educate us all about how to best support our adrenal health and energy levels while navigating a busy life. 

Dr. Izabel’s newest book The Adrenal Transformation Protocol is designed not only for women who are struggling with diagnosed chronic health conditions, but it benefits anyone dealing with symptoms of adrenal fatigue such as brain fog, fatigue, sleep issues, mood swings, or anxiety. 

She’s released her program to over 3,500 people now. And she’s helped so many of them who have serious health issues get better with real diagnoses. She’s also guided people who may not have a diagnosis yet but are searching for answers because they know something’s off in their bodies. 

If you’re struggling with stress, anxiety, or uncertainty with symptoms, you have to hear what Dr. Izabella discusses and learn more about what you can expect in her new adrenal transformation protocol book. 

Check out this podcast to discover tips for supporting your adrenal function through diet, supplements, and lifestyle modifications. Dr. Izabella provides you with the tools you need to live a more stress-free life and minimize symptoms that may be putting your body in stressful states.  Don’t forget to put yourself first! 

Dr. Izabella Wentz 

Dr. Izabella Wentz is an innovative and solution-focused integrative pharmacist. She’s dedicated to finding the root cause of chronic health conditions. This passion stems from her own diagnosis with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis in 2009, following 10 years of debilitating symptoms.

Dr. Izabella has been treating patients with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and low thyroid function for several years. And she’s developed protocols targeting adrenal issues. 

She’s an accomplished author and has written several best-selling books including Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis: Lifestyle Interventions for Finding and Treating the Root Cause and Hashimoto’s Protocol: A 90-Day Plan for Reversing Thyroid Symptoms and Getting Your Life Back.  

Her newest book– The Adrenal Transformation Protocol–  is fully devoted to her experience healing adrenal issues in thousands of people. It’s designed to help you get over feelings of burnout and to heal your stress-response symptoms so you can live the life you love. 


“Low thyroid function goes hand in hand with experiencing chronic stress. And this connection has always been in the back of my mind because I know that an autoimmune condition like Hashimoto’s thyroiditis never fully goes away.”

“90% of people will have some degree of adrenal dysfunction when they have a thyroid issue. And our stress hormone cortisol and our thyroid hormones have a very intimate feedback loop system. So whenever a person is hypothyroid, their body will compensate by keeping cortisol around longer.” 

“We have a really difficult time actually giving adrenal fatigue and adrenal issues a diagnosis.” 

“Whether it’s the over-fasting or the undereating, or it’s racing from one thing to the next– I feel like our body is always kind of queuing up high alert.” 

“It usually takes just three to four weeks for people to see benefits. And I’m talking 92% of people see improvement in their brain fog and more than 80% will have less fatigue, they’ll have better sleep, less pain in their bodies, feel less anxious, and they’ll have more clarity.”
