JTG #44 Functional Nutrition For Clear Skin With FDN Practitioner Jenn Malecha
*Special announcement about the podcast*
Hi, I’m Caroline Dalia Kaliani, Functional Nutrition Practitioner, Herbal Medicine Mama & formulator of a botanical skincare line for rosacea.
A few years ago, I launched this free educational platform called Journey to Glow.
The goal? To explore natural, holistic and effective solutions for skin “issues”.
In my quest to share the effectiveness of natural medicine, I interviewed over 75+ holistic skin experts (Functional Medicine Practitioners, Naturopathic NDs, Holistic Nutritionists, Integrative Dermatologists, and Ayurvedic doctors…) as well as dozens of womxn who fully healed rosacea.
The Journey To Glow podcast reached over 100,000 listeners and received hundreds of 5 stars reviews in 30 different countries. But the best part? Were the weekly emails from listeners and readers who shared they have regained hope that they could heal their skin!
After years of making the episodes available for free on mainstream podcast platforms, we are now rethinking how we want this information to be accessed.
If you’d like to be notified of the next steps, sign up for the Glowletter at the bottom of this page.
Thank you for listening and for being on the journey with us!
JTG #44 A Functional Map To Clear Skin With FDN Practitioner Jenn Malecha
This is part 2 of my conversation with FDN Practitioner (Functional Diagnostics Nutrition) Jenn Malecha. To listen to part one, click here: https://journeytoglow.com/j35
In this episode of the Journey To Glow podcast I talk to FDN practitioner Jenn Malecha about the functional approach to identifying the root cause of a skin imbalance and creating a map to follow, each step leading to clear glowing skin.
About our guest:
Jenn Malecha supports busy, health-mind professionals in taking back control of their health by giving them access to the right lab tests and resources so they can find the missing pieces of their health puzzle, actually fix what is wrong and get back to feeling like themselves again.
Using over a decade of personal training experience, training in Functional Diagnostic Nutrition and Transformational Coaching, she creates personalized health-rebuilding programs for clients that are realistic and sustainable for long-lasting results, and that empowers clients to be the boss of their own health.
If you’re ready to look at the “big picture” of your health (not just one disconnected piece at a time), to embrace healthy as a way of being, and to stop settling for anything less than you deserve when it comes to your health and happiness then Jenn is exactly who you’ve been looking for!
In this episode we cover:
- How to know if your body is actually absorbing nutrients
- Functional tests to give you clues on what’s out of balance in your body
- The impact of stress on the body
- How to shift from stressful states to calm states (parasympathetic mode)
- 3 Functional tests Jenn works with to determine what’s going on in the body and design a path to healing
Tips to absorb nutrients better:
- Slow down! Resist the temptation of eating on the go
- Sit to eat and chew your food
- Eat mindfully
- Take a minute to rest while you digest instead of running out the door
“Your body can only heal when it’s in a rest state. Being mindful of our lifestyle is therefore crucial to healing.”
