426: Conquering Cortisol Imbalance & a Platelet Disorder: Shanais Pelka’s Path to Wellness with Superfoods, Adaptogens, and Organifi


While studying to become a nutritionist and raising her children, today’s guest Shanais Pelka faced a respiratory infection that led to a platelet disorder. Traditional treatments didn’t work, so she took her health into her own hands.

Through extensive research and experimentation, she discovered the power of herbs and supplements in improving her health and healed herself.

Today she is an herbalist, nutritionist, health educator, and a dedicated mother of three with a passion for food, herbs, medicinal mushrooms, sustainability, and community.

After running her own nutrition bar company and spending time in Costa Rica, Shanais found a new calling at Organifi. She now leads their Research & Development efforts, bringing her expertise to the forefront of the health and wellness industry.

Today she’s sharing her healing journey with us and how we can use superfoods and adaptogens to enhance our health.
