Guest Bio

 Dr. Bryan Walsh 

Dr. Bryan Walsh combines a passion for nutritional biochemistry and science-based therapies, yet maintains a broad view of wellness, believing in the infinite capacity for the body to heal itself given the appropriate conditions and environment.

He specializes in managing a variety of conditions, but specializes in autoimmune thyroid conditions as well as weight loss for active men and women who are not losing weight using good diet and exercise programs.

  • What is the HPA axis and why does it matter?
  • Why adrenal fatigue is nothing more than a great marketing term!
