“The Adrenal Recode helps you focus on how you move, breathe, think, and what you do during the day. It is giving people the most powerful yet clinical, intuitive, nutrition possible because it allows you to peer inside yourself and recognize how you feel and how your body responds when you do or don't have what you need for yourself.” – Christa Orecchio

Power Quotes From The Show

It All Starts With The Nervous System
“Whole-body health starts with the nervous system. If we look at and address the functional medicine triangle paradigm which includes the gut, thyroid, and adrenals, we will see a massive improvement in all aspects of our health.” – Christa Orecchio
21st-Century Stress Diseases
“Collectively, we are in this 21st-century stress disease of chronic overwhelm and burn out. We're living off of stress hormones and we can't keep going the way we're going now. We have to break down to break through and that's the only way out. We can't medicate it anymore, try to supplement it away, take a yoga class, or just read a book. With the right guidance and support, we can make the process simple and do the actual hard work.” – Christa Orecchio
Emotional Mastery For A Strong Body
“Maintaining a strong nervous system is really everything and you can't just approach it physiologically. We have to learn how to emotionally re-pattern because life's going to do what life's going to do to all of us. So, the next time you experience a stressful moment, you have to have some kind of emotional mastery that allows you to respond instead of react to it. If you're constantly reacting, then you're going to drive the physiological process and then the clinical aspect of this work becomes a band-aid.” – Christa Orecchio
The Trick To Real-Time Health Feedback
“Lab tests are great but they only give you a snapshot in time but it's not the same as instant feedback. Taking your temperature and pulse is easy, free, and provides real-time feedback as to whether your adrenals and thyroid are able to regulate your blood sugar and it's an accurate reflection of available T3 inside of the cells.” – Christa Orecchio
