The next Whole Life Challenge starts in:

Your hair is falling out, you’re going through full on night sweats, you’re exhausted every day, and you are given three options to “cure” yourself: prescription drugs, surgery, or change your diet. Which would you choose?

Meet Kristin Kaschak of The Girl with the Butter who was faced with this sort of dilemma eight years ago, and who had to figure it all out for herself (no one laid it out in a nice, neat little package for her like this). She chose the route of dietary change, found out later that the prescription drugs her doctor was prescribing were not the correct ones for her particular thyroid condition, and has completely taken charge of her own health and well being through diet, exercise and lifestyle choices.

Her story is compelling as is her commitment to helping others navigate the waters of dietary change. She’s a self-created WLC “expert” and has a lot of knowledge and experience to share.
