Adrenal Fatigue Recovery

Thursday, October 4th, 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm, $35 @ The Light Cellar

Adrenal fatigue… do you have it?

Are you feeling exhausted, wired but tired, anxious, or have sugar cravings and brain fog? Do you have unwanted belly fat or 10 extra pounds you just can’t shake no matter what you do?

Something’s up with your adrenals and there are natural ways to get back to feeling like yourself.

Join Madeline MacKinnon, certified nutrition consultant and the founder of Natural Hormone Healing, and get on the fast track to adrenal fatigue recovery. Uncover which of 3 stages of adrenal fatigue you are in and how to heal yourself with nutrition, self care rituals, elixirs and customized herbal protocols.


By the end of class you’ll have learned:

  • The cause of your adrenal fatigue
  • How to determine what stage of adrenal fatigue you’re in and the warning signs of potential adrenal fatigue
  • How different herbs complement each stage of adrenal fatigue and which ones compete (yet still recommended by many health professionals) with each other to delay your healing process
  • Lifestyle shifts you can make to reset your circadian rhythm and reduce cortisol
  • Key nutrients to focus on for sustained healing

You’ll be provided with a hard copy of Madeline’s adrenal assessment, a nutrition guide for adrenal fatigue, and recipes to compliment the class.



“Your Adrenal Fatigue workshop had a huge impact on me. I’ve recently hit stage 3 of a complete burn out and had to take a couple of weeks off from work. I’m really happy to have some tangible things that I can start implementing right away.” – Lina

“I enjoyed the class you taught on the topic of adrenal fatigue. I finally felt like someone got me, and there is a reason why I’m feeling the way I’m feeling. I’ve been trying for years to lose weight without any luck. Since following your recommendations, I’ve lost about 6 pounds and have less bloating from the nutrition alone.”- Laurette Woodward
