Concentrating on optimal adrenal health can lead to some remarkable health benefits, including regaining energy levels.

Key Takeaways

If you have coeliac disease and Hashimoto's, if you remove gluten from your diet, in some cases you can reverse the subclinical hypothyroidism and rid yourself of thyroid antibodies.
Genetic predisposition, leaky gut and a trigger are the three things that must have manifested for an auto-immune condition to be present.
When people are under a chronic stress response, their alignment with the circadian rhythm suffers greatly, and cortisol production might increase as a result.
People starting off on their journey are wise to eliminate problematic foods through elimination diets of food sensitivity tests.
