Am I tired because my hormones are out of whack?


Episode #143 – Are My Hormones Out of Whack? Understanding Fatigue with Functional Medicine

When clients get on a coaching call with me, sometimes they start the conversation with “I don’t know if it’s just my hormones but I’ve been super tired and cranky lately.”

If are tired of feeling tired, and aren’t sure if life coaching or health coaching is right for you, today’s podcast is a great place to start.

Today I interview Heidi Toy from

Heidi and I talk about the root cause of fatigue falling into 3 categories:

  1. Emotional Stress

  2. Dietary Stress

  3. Hidden Pain/Inflammation


Heidi and Torie will answer these questions and more:

Everyone is tired. Why is it something to even address beyond a cup of coffee each morning?

What’s the real reason people are tired all the time?

How do you address the root causes?

How do you actually heal from them?
