I used to be one of those girls who couldn’t do ANYTHING before or during her period.

Cramps.
Irritability.
Fatigue.
Bloating.
Cravings.

I was basically out of commission for 10 solid days a month. Then, through my holistic health studies, I learned that PMS is NOT normal. My crazy period was basically my monthly “report card” telling me something wasn’t right.

After a ton of research into how to balance my hormones I found author of Period Repair Manual, Lara Briden. Dr. Briden has been working in women’s health for over 20 years and her tips and tricks have helped hundreds of women finally find balance. After implementing her strategies I barely even notice my cycle every month! Tune in to this week’s podcast to find out exactly what Dr. Briden recommends.

I suffered from acne for over 12 years. Not just the occasional pimple either, but the kind that stole my confidence and made me want to hide out in my house.


At first it was “just something I had to deal with as a teen,” but when I got into my 20’s and 30’s and it was STILL lingering, I knew it was time to do something to get the root of my skin issues.

Acne is NOT something you just have to deal with, it’s a sign of imbalance, and now that I’ve identified and addressed my imbalances, I’m acne free! (unless I eat garlic, that is!)

So if you’ve got skin issues listen (or know or love someone who does) tune into this week’s podcast to see what I (and my dietician friend and fellow FDN-P practitioner, Amanda Montalvo) did to clear up our skin for good!

Digestive issues
Gallbladder dysfunction
Food sensitivities
Anxiety & Depression
Autoimmune disease

In fact, according to author and functional medicine specialist, Dr. Habib...

“100% of those with autoimmune issues and digestive issues have vagus nerve dysfunction.”
