JTG #12 Clear Skin Diet with Functional Diagnostics Nutrition Practitioner Melissa Vanden Heuvel
In today’s episode, Functional Diagnostics Nutrition Practitioner Melissa Vanden Heuvel and I dive deep into the clear skin diet and how to detox the body for optimal heath and clear glowing skin.
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.
In this episode, Melissa talks to Journey To Glow host Caroline Frenette about:
- What kind of smoothies are the most beneficial in the morning
- Should you be having smoothies in the morning?
- How to figure out what is the right diet based on bio-individuality

After spending thousands of dollars on organic, non-toxic skincare products but not seeing much improvements in my skin, I started researching essential oils.
Don't get me wrong, I'm a green beauty junkie, and I love the handmade, small-batch skincare products I've purchased. But I never found ONE serum that would tackle all of my skin's unique needs. So I ended up with a bathroom counter full of lovely products but no real solution.
Through my extensive research on essential oils for sensitive skin, I discovered 5 key oils that targeted my skin’s dehydration, inflammation and breakouts.
After 2 weeks of crafting and testing my own serums made of 100% certified pure therapeutic grade essential oils, I noticed an improvement in the texture of my skin. Specifically, the rosacea breakouts on my cheeks were gone and my skin felt hydrated.
