After over a year of researching adrenal fatigue and the science of how our body makes energy, Ari Whitten has come to a few revolutionary conclusions. First, while adrenal fatigue may not be real, your symptoms are. And it is important to get to the root cause of what is impacting your cortisol levels, even if it is not what you thought it was.
The creator of The Energy Blueprint, Ari has dedicated his life to studying the production of energy and helping educate others to optimize their mitochondrial function. An expert in chronic fatigue, mitochondrial function, detoxification and metabolism, Ari is here to paint a cohesive picture of what is going on inside the cells that is causing you to feel fatigued, and what you can do to stop and even reverse it.
If you are accustomed to burnout and think you just need to deal with it, Ari provides tips to tell you how you can overcome your fatigue and increase your energy levels naturally and sustainably. Energy is everything, and what is driving your energy is driving your cellular function, so it is crucial that you know what is going on.
When you connect the dots between adrenal fatigue, cortisol levels, misrepresentation, and unique symptoms, you can start to piece together a picture of your unique optimal functioning. Symptoms, cortisol levels, and hormonal imbalances can be tough to navigate, but with Ari’s simple Energy Blueprint you can enable your mitochondria to become more resilient and set yourself up for success.

“I basically just decided, you know what, I am going to do the most comprehensive review of the scientific literature on this topic that has ever been done, and then I am just going to communicate the objective facts of those findings.” (22:23)
“There is absolutely, in this whole body of evidence, there is no real indication of any burnout of the adrenal glands or any actual inability to produce cortisol.” (26:06)
“Fatigue is actually an intelligent symptom, it’s adaptive, it’s part of our body’s healing response. It becomes pathological when it’s chronic, but it’s important to understand fatigue as your body being stuck in a mode where it feels not safe enough to be in peacetime metabolism and energy production mode.” (35:38)
“Most people know melatonin as a sleep hormone, but here is what they don’t know. Melatonin is the most potent protector of your mitochondria in existence; it is the most powerful mitochondrial antioxidant known to man.” (44:51)
