JTG#63 Herbal Medicine For Skin Health With Alicia Hamilton Founder of Wild Bloom Botanicals
*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!
Herbal Medicine For Skin Health With Alicia Hamilton Founder of Wild Bloom Botanicals
In this podcast interview, my guest Alicia Hamilton founder of Wild Bloom Botanicals, and I dive into herbal medicine to support skin health as well as how to tune into the spirit of plant allies with the help of our intuition.
About our guest:
Alicia is a certified Holistic Nutritionist and Herbalist who’s passionate about holistic health. Her journey to health started after years of being sick with mystery illnesses that the doctors couldn’t help her with. She struggled with PCOS, adrenal fatigue, extreme deficiencies, brain fog, poor memory, anxiety and depression. For years she thought that she was going to live her entire life feeling unwell because she was just ‘unlucky’ and living in a faulty body but then discovered yoga and herbal medicine.
After years of experimenting with diet, herbs, and supplements, she diminished all of her symptoms and finally felt amazing in her body. Alicia decided to go to school for holistic nutrition and herbalism so that she could make it her life’s work to help others heal the same way she did.
Since then, her brand of Wild Bloom Botanicals has been growing and she now ships health products all over the world and teaches as much as she can about diet and natural wellness.
What we cover in the interview:
• The mistakes people make when following the Medical Medium advice
• Underlying cause of brain fog
• How to improve your digestive system
