How To Escape Chronic Stress & Burnout: A Tale of HPA Axis Dysregulation with Michelle Leotta

Aired -

Everyone understands what stress is...sort of. But did you know that feeling stressed, anxious, having trouble sleeping, digestive distress, impaired immunity, hypothyroidism and stubborn weight can all stem from ONE root cause in the body? In this workshop we'll travel through the brain and endocrine system to understand our stress response system and learn how to turn it off through movement, nutrition and environment – rather than relying on medication to suppress individual symptoms.

Michelle Leotta has been featured on ABC, CBS, NPR and in the movie “Lemonade” with her inspiring story of burnout recovery. Once working non-stop in the fast paced world of Big Advertising, she suffered with debilitating anxiety, fainting spells and IBS. As an Integrative & Functional Health Coach and host of the She's Got Power podcast, Michelle has spent the past 11 years helping go-getter women heal from chronic stress and its accompanying symptoms. She's a longtime yogi, single mother and has zero plans to cover up the hard-earned silver streaks in her curls. Learn more at
