5. How To Prevent an Underactive Thyroid From Causing Diabetes
The connection between the health of your thyroid and diabetes runs deep, and it’s both well-chronicled and well-researched. One of my favorite blogs, and one of the most popular, from 2017 was one which introduced the term “thyrobetes” into so many of your lexicons. We learned about the risks of an underperforming thyroid, and the action steps that you can take to put your health back into your own hands.
4. 12 Thyroid Friendly Foods That Stabilize Your Blood Sugar
There is just so much to love about good foods. When we know what our bodies need, we can feel better, we can reverse the damage that we’ve unintentionally done to our bodies, and we can enjoy ourselves that much more. In this article, we dived deep into the world of blood sugar: How important it is to our overall health, the targets we want to hit, and then the 12 foods that can help stabilize your blood sugar today. Some of these are okra, eggplant, adzuki beans, but I’ll let you discover the rest for yourself by reading the article!
3. The Ultimate Guide to Food Intolerance Testing
It’s really no surprise to me that this ultimate guide to food intolerance testing turned out to be the third most popular article of the year, as it really helped uncover a world that we often do not know enough about. What’s the difference between an allergy and an intolerance? They are certainly not one in the same, and this guide helped uncover more about how intolerances can lead to weight gain, thyroid complications, and more. Need to know if you’re at risk? You’ll even find the tests you should be considering today.
2. Surprising Danger About Bentonite Clay
Given the recent popularity of bentonite clay, this article was so important for me to get out there for you. You might have initially thought that these types of clays are good for detoxing your system, especially because they are marketed that way! Well, the truth will surprise, shock, and will ensure that you steer clear of bentonite clay in the future. What’s the big problem? It unfortunately ties back to one of the trickiest toxins out there: Lead. In this article, you’ll also learn about some other unexpected possible sources of lead (hint: Try to skip the next bowl of bone broth that you’re offered).
1. 7 Proven Ways To Lose Weight With Adrenal Fatigue
Adrenal fatigue was quite the hot topic in 2017, which is why we have it at the top of the list. I have talked before about how I’d like to rename adrenal fatigue, the myths involved with it, as well as the proven ways that it can help with weight loss. In this article, we learned about simple, actionable, and healthy steps that you can take (like carb cycling, enjoying more basil, and the value of resistant starch) to take back your health and work on your weight loss. Want to learn even more? A great place to start is by learning the causes of adrenal stress, and educating yourself on the importance of your adrenals altogether by taking the Adrenal Quiz right now.
