8: 3 Hidden Causes of Fatigue with Dr Daniel Kalish

Last year, Filly did a joint webinar with internationally renowned Functional Medicine expert, Dr Daniel Kalish, for Natural Medicine Week. It was a fantastic convo and a deep-dive into fatigue, including long-haul COVID, which has affected up to 34% of COVID-infected people.


With Natural Medicine Week coming up this month (22 - 28 May), we thought we’d share our interview with Dr Kalish today on the Ending Body Burnout Show in celebration of Natural Medicine Week 22 - 28 May 2023. Filly is a proud ambassador for Natural Medicine Week, and will be holding a special [FREE] Root Cause of Emotional Eating Masterclass - register here. And while you’re there, check out all the other exciting online events, blogs & recipes being held during Natural Medicine Week.
