Stress is a big deal. It leads to everything you and I want to avoid – weight gain, fatigue, depression, chronic disease – all of it.
We can’t avoid everything that causes stress but we can help our bodies become more resilient to it.
That’s why I wanted to share my friend Doni Wilson with you. Dr. Wilson has been the other main naturopath writing about adrenal health over these years. She has a really good new book out with several of the latest insights about stress recovery.
