202. Tired but Wired? Healing the 21st Century Stress Syndrome of Adrenal Fatigue with Kristen Files

Is feeling “tired” and “stressed” your normal?

Have you lost your creative spark and zest for life, but can’t seem to pin down the root cause?

James Wilson famously dubbed adrenal fatigue “the 21st century syndrome” because our system glorifies work and machine-like output while devaluing the true needs of our human bodies. We crave nature connection, sunshine, rest, play, creativity and physical movement but paradoxically live in a system that follows the laws of production over intuition.

Well, today you’ll hear all about the consequences of this lifestyle! Kristen Files, my guest today, is a functional nutritional therapy practitioner and master restorative wellness practitioner who is board-certified in holistic nutrition. She gives us a comprehensive introduction to the adrenal glands, the HPA axis, the hormones that govern our bodies at different stages of life (hello, menopause!) and simple tips for healing hormonal dysregulation. She is a living example that her integrated approach truly works! Kristen’s contact information amazing resources can be found at
