Episode 009 - Adrenals
Tiny but mighty, our adrenals are two walnut-sized glands that sit on top of our kidneys. They are responsible for the production of cortisol (our stress hormone) as well as our sex hormones. In this episode, I discuss the role of our adrenals in keeping our hormones balanced and regulating our sleep cycle. I also address the misconception around "adrenal fatigue" or "adrenal exhaustion", which are commonly used terms to describe adrenal dysfunction. Want to learn more about your hormones?

Episode 008 - Sugar & Hormones
It may be delicious, but sugar can wreak havoc on our endocrine system, which is responsible for creating and regulating our hormones. Too much sugar can also lead to rapid weight gain, insulin resistance and mood imbalances. In this episode, I discuss how sugar disrupts our hormones and what you can do to kick the sugar habit for good. I also unpack some of the places that sugar tends to hide in and offer some alternatives so that you can still enjoy some sweetness in your life!

Episode 007 - Hormones & Fat Loss
Often when we think of hormones, we think of estrogen and testosterone—but there's so much more to it than that. Hormones are the chemical messengers that tell our organs what to do and when. When it comes to body fat, they play a pivotal role in how we metabolize it. In this episode, I explain what might be preventing you from burning body fat and what you can do to help your body become a fat-burning machine.

Episode 005 - Bone Health
Commonly referred to as the "silent disease", most people don't realize that they have osteoporosis until they experience a fracture, develop curvature in their spine, or notice that they're getting shorter. Although it is generally associated with older people, the truth is that our body stops building bone mass around the age of 30. In this episode, I discuss the lifestyle factors that affect our bone health and how to maintain bone mass as we age.
