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.
