Cooking for hormone balance with Magdalena Wszelaki

Really enjoyed this podcast with Magdalena Wszelaki, the founder of Hormones Balance.
Magdalena talked about the significant health crisis she went through as a result of a highly stressful career in advertising. A high profile and demanding lifestyle, stressful in every way! Mentally stressful, never in the same time zone, lack of sleep, hotel and fast food on the run. This eventually ended in complete adrenal fatigue, autoimmune conditions, estrogen dominance and even depression.
But she was able to heal herself and go into complete …

Put more Oxytocin into your life for a healthier you

So many lifestyle considerations beyond just diet can impact your health. Sometimes you need to spend a bit of time (and play detective) to figure out what is going on.

Why do I feel disconnected? The Cortisol-Oxytocin Connection

Do you feel stressed, tired, lonely and disconnected from your relationships with others and even yourself?

Are you a corti-holic?

Alcohol has a bad rap due to the abuse of what can be a beneficial substance when used in moderation. Yes, a little red wine can be healthy, but alas, too many people abuse it!.
