What is Adrenal Fatigue?


Stressed? Tired? Craving sugar? Can’t sleep?

All of these can be related to the constant stress we feel in our lives. We know that stress can have a huge impact on our health and wellness. And, since your adrenal glands produce stress hormones, adrenal fatigue (or “HPA Axis Dysregulation,”) is a popular theme lately.

The Nutrition Facts table is on the side of most packaged foods. It’s often found close to the ingredient listing.

How Much Sugar is Too Much?

how much sugar cam I eat

It’s official! Organizations and governments are (finally) declaring a maximum amount of daily sugar intake.

While this is a step forward, there are still a few problems. One – they don’t all agree with each other. And, two, I don’t necessarily agree with them either.

The problem […]

Annaliisa Detox Beet Latte

If you love frothy hot drinks as much as me, this beet latte is a must try.

I used beet powder (available in an health food store) and collagen because they are both important for helping the liver detoxify harmful toxins that come from daily exposure from food, air, water, and products we use on our skin and in our homes.
