Jumping from diet to diet, pill to pill and/or protocol to protocol without relief can be exhausting. 

It’s a cycle many people (maybe even you) are trapped in today.

But the truth is - in order to feel vibrant long term (which is your birthright), you need to identify the root cause(s) of YOUR suffering. 

For example, breakouts can be caused by MANY things such as...

  • Food allergies/intolerances
  • Blood sugar/insulin imbalances
  • Nutrient deficiencies
  • Stress
  • Hormonal dysfunction
  • Gut issues
  • Poor hygiene
  • And more

My cystic breakouts were tied to a garlic intolerance (of all things) which is why all of the other remedies I tried for YEARS (candida cleanse, lotions, microdermabrasion, face creams, etc.) didn’t help.  

And why the paleo diet wasn’t enough for me to heal my skin.

In other words, different people with the same symptom may need different interventions AND sometimes lab testing can be invaluable for identifying your root issues. 

It was this realization that brought me to Functional Diagnostic Nutrition (FDN). FDN is a training system that uses data-driven protocols and functional lab testing to help people identify the root cause (or causes) of their suffering. 

It teaches people to identify their contributors to “metabolic chaos” AND how to systematically cultivate health. 

I took this course nearly 2 years ago and it changed my life and the way I work with clients. 

So if you’re someone who would love to learn what it takes to get to the root cause of your health issues OR someone who would love to learn how to take their wellness practice to the next level, please tune in to today’s podcast with the founder of FDN (and expert in functional lab testing), Reed Davis. 

Here are a few of the gems you’ll learn about...

  • Why some of us get sick and others don’t
  • 10 reasons people get “sicker quicker”
  • Why parasites and candida are not always the root issue
  • The most common types of gut bugs
  • The one belief I wish everyone had on their healing journey
  • What vitalism is - and why it’s so important
  • The difference between not having symptoms and health
  • The Wellness Meter (and why you should know about it!)
  • The benefits of gut bugs
  • One of the biggest contributors to gut issues
  • The difference between common and normal symptoms
  • Reed’s favorite recommendations for gut testing
  • The worst foods for gut health
  • Reed’s favorite food sensitivity test
  • 3 steps to improve gut health
  • How to become a health detective
  • And so much more!

The knowledge I gained from FDN was so empowering and helpful for me and all of my clients and I sincerely hope you love this interview as much as I did.

Food quality is paramount, but it might surprise you to know WHEN you eat may be just as important. Why?

Because light exposure profoundly impacts metabolism. 

Meaning, there IS a time of day we can get away with a cheat meal and a time when even a healthy meal may not be doing our health any favors. 

Tune into this week’s podcast with photobiology expert and founder of Ra Optics, Matt Maruca, to learn all about simple ways you can use light exposure to optimize (or negatively impact) your health. Here are a few of the fun facts you’re in for...

  • The best time of day for a cheat meal
  • A simple morning habit for healthier hormones
  • Why light exposure may be as important as food quality
  • The most important body part we need to expose to light
  • The link between fish and light exposure (this is truly fascinating!)
  • How to prevent a sunburn without sunblock
  • Why you should ditch your sunglasses
  • Why krill oil is different than fish oil
  • The effect of sex on epigenetics
  • The KEY to a long, happy life (hint: it’s not genetics)
  • The common daily habit that damages your mitochondria (and why it matters)
  • The mitochondria-healing hormone (and how to boost levels)
  • And so much more!

Tune in and share this podcast with anyone you know who might benefit. 

Thanks for listening, friends!
