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

Danielle Ryan Clinical Herbalist Journey to glow interview

*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!

Mission accomplished!

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 #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!
