JTG #55 Functional Mushrooms For Optimum Health & Radiant Skin With Danielle Ryan Broida

If you’re curious about the benefits of functional mushrooms for optimum health and radiant skin, you’re going to love this conversation with Danielle Broida!

In this interview, we get a little personal about what was going on in my life back March 2020 (which is when this interview was recorded) that affected my sleep and stress. I decided not to edit out this part of the conversation so that you could get a glimpse of what it’s like to work with a really good herbalist who’s looking for the root cause, not treating the symptoms.

On the Journey to Glow podcast, our focus always aims directly at skin health. But sometimes we need to dig deeper than the surface to get to the root cause. And this is exactly what we do in this episode with Danielle.

We cover:

  • How to feed the probiotics already in our gut instead of constantly replenishing with probiotics
  • What are prebiotic plants and which functional mushroom contain the most prebiotic fibers that are supportive for gut health
  • How to use Calendula flowers to repair gut lining
  • The importance of right dosage of plants to make it medicinal and effective
  • Plant infusions versus decoctions
  • The importance of designing the right plant protocol to support specific body constitutions
  • Danielle’s preferred way to figure out if someone is nutrition deficient (hint: it doesn’t involve expensive testing)
  • How the body gives us clues all the time as to what it needs to heal and thrive
  • The reality of the supplements industry and where supplements really come from (even if it says USA on the bottle!)
  • How adaptogenic mushrooms work to support the body
  • Functional mushrooms for gut, skin and brain support

Also included in this episode: loud outbursts of laughter!

About our guest

Danielle is a Registered Herbalist (RH) of the American Herbalists Guild (AHG), Certified Holistic Nutritionist and National Educator at Four Sigmatic. Prior to joining forces with Four Sigmatic, she received her BA in Environmental Studies and Philosophy from Whitman College.

She studied Ayurveda in India and became a Certified Yoga Instructor on the banks of the Ganges River. She then worked with a Naturopathic Doctor in Indonesia where she became a Certified Raw Chef and Detox Coach. But it was leading trekking adventures into the backcountry of Thailand where she became particularly fascinated by herbal medicine.

After several years in Asia, she landed in Boulder, Colorado to formalize her education in holistic medicine. Upon completing her graduate studies at the Colorado School of Clinical Herbalism (CSCH), she opened a private practice, Danielle Ryan Wellness, where she worked with hundreds of clients across the US, specializing in treatment for individuals with autoimmune conditions and chronic illness. She was invited to become the Instructor of Mycology at CSCH, where she still teaches.

Danielle brings her passion and expertise in herbal medicine, clinical practice, teaching, formulation, and her deep love for fungi, to the Everyday Magic™ of Four Sigmatic as their National Educator.

In her free time, you can find her outside—whether under the sun or stars, summer heat or winter snow. She’ll either be gardening, foraging, cooking plant-based recipes, rock climbing, hiking, skiing, surfing, or scuba diving.
