Adrenal fatigue is more common than you think and can really negatively impact your life.
Last week, I got an email from a friend and colleague, Dr. Izabella Wentz (aka The Thyroid Pharmacist) an expert in adrenals & related diseases.
Recently, I’ve sensed my adrenals getting taxed and the timing of this email was uncanny. After reading it (— and subsequently signing up for the program) I felt a duty to share it with you since so much of modern life is adrenal and stress fueled. Her personal story is compelling and offers super practical advice to address.
My wife and I have had challenges with managing stress through some very stressful times over the past 7-10 years (selling a company, my father (and dear friend) passing, moving to a new place (Boulder, CO), starting Akamai, raising seed capital and bootstrapping it, raising teens, perimenopause, etc. Whew! — first world problems yes, stress creators nonetheless. Especially if you don’t have the tools.
It all came to a head for me — back in the spring/summer of 2015, I had a harrowing experience with adrenal fatigue that left me incapacitated for several months — the road to “full” recovery took over 6 mos. I can now look back on this painful experience as perhaps the most formative in my life — it further fueled my drive to seek the best tools, modalities & teachers — apply them, and share with others.
A few of the things I practice and study daily are CBT techniques, mediation, flow state exercise, eustress techniques, breath work, reading Stoics, psychological integration, the judicious use of powerful plant based medicines & supplements, etc. (For more see our beta Wellness Resources section).
This is what we do and encourage you to do the same for yourself and others.
- Take action (pass this email on, sign up for the program — I just did)
We all need coaching and basic tools (and a keen awareness of the early warning signs of adrenal fatigue). Read on — and thank you, Dr. Wentz!

Subject: Why adrenal support is crucial to Hashimoto’s recovery
Being a skeptical pharmacist, I put-off testing my adrenals — I had just ventured into the world of alternative medicine, and was always afraid of people trying to take advantage of me and take my money. (Though I later discovered they were simply trying to help!)
The symptoms of adrenal fatigue can be far reaching, extending to the whole body.
I know it’s quite a list, and I share it because your symptoms and experiences are NOT in your head! If any of these sound familiar, the best news you may hear today is that you can get better and heal from these frustrating symptoms.
The alternative medicine approach has focused on strategies like getting more sleep and less caffeine. These do work well for some people… But what if you can’t sleep more and can’t function without caffeine? And what if you’ve already tried those and failed? That’s why I put together the Adrenal Transformation Program — because I wanted a tangible way for people to find healing and hope again — and I’m so excited to announce that I’m re-opening enrollment for the program, TODAY!
This former participant, like many others, experienced increased energy and a reduction in joint pain, brain fog, headaches, and anxiety!
