How to Not Tank Your Adrenals with Hope Pedraza
The adrenals can either be your thyroid's bestie or frenemy. There is an intimate connection between these two little glands, and when one goes into dysfunction, it often takes the other with it.
Bottom line: We're more prone to adrenal issues as Thyroid Thrivers. And although certain health trends may promise amazing results and benefits, they could also be tanking your adrenals (and bringing your thyroid function along for the ride).
If you’ve been struggling with things like low energy, sleep issues, trouble with exercise, or weight gain in spite of doing all the things, this is an episode of Thyroid-healthy Bites you don’t want to miss.
My guest Hope Pedraza has too many letters behind her name to list, having racked up several certifications and diplomas in functional health. As someone who has completely tanked her adrenals and lived to tell the tale, Hope knows what to look for, how to repair, and how NOT to tank the adrenals. She shares all her best tips in this juicy interview.

Need More Adrenal Support?
Stress is a part of life. We can't eliminate stress, but we can find health-supporting ways to manage and cope with it. For Thyroid Thrivers, unaddressed or chronic stress can be a source of compounding symptoms, and adrenal dysfunction is at the top of that list!
Without a way to decompress, unmanaged stress can take a toll on our health. But a little bit of self-care can go a long way. That's where The Calm Kit comes in, with a curated collection of healing meditations, calming breathwork videos, restorative movement videos, soothing recipes, and so much more!
I hope this episode of Thyroid-healthy Bites has inspired you to think about ways to nourish and nurture your adrenals. I know Hope and her journey have inspired me.
Thanks so much for watching, and I'll see you next time!
Wishing you the best of health,
