JTG #1: Clearing Cystic Acne With Melissa Vanden Heuvel

Melissa Vanden Heuvel is a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner and Health Coach on a mission to help autoimmune warriors overcome their health symptoms and achieve optimal health.

After investing hundreds of hours (and a chunk of her savings) trying to heal her own thyroid and cystic acne issues with minimal results, she listened to her intuition and enlisted help from the functional medical field. 

Melissa now happily supports her clients’ unique healing code by creating bespoke healing protocols as well as guiding them to tune into their own inner healer so they can feel empowered to make the right choices on the path to optimum health.
