*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 #27 The DUTCH Test For Hormonal Balance & Clear Skin With Kristen Burkett

Ever since hearing about DUTCH Test, I’ve been fascinated to learn more about how it can give us clues not only to heal our skin but on a deeper level, about our general well-being and our hormones. So when my guest Kristen Burkett agreed to come on the podcast to talk about the DUTCH Test, I knew we’d be in for a treat.

If you’ve been listening to the Journey To Glow podcast you know that pinpointing the root cause of your skin imbalance is key.  Slapping on a thick layer of organic cream will not heal your rosacea, acne, eczema or psoriasis. We must empower ourselves and take the healing process into our own hands and today’s conversation will help you do just that.

About my guest

She is Board Certified in Holistic Nutrition ® by the National Association of Nutrition Professionals (NANP) and holds a Master of Science from Texas Woman’s University as well as a Bachelor of Science and a Bachelor of Arts from New Mexico State University.

As a former healthcare executive, she developed quality improvement strategies for clinical settings. Her passion for true root cause analysis led her to a more holistic approach with Nutrition Therapy.

Alongside growing her private practice, she loves digging deep into the latest research on healthy aging. Family time is a priority, so Kristen looks for every opportunity to spend time with her husband and two teenagers.

In this episode, Kristen Burkett and Journey To Glow host Caroline Frenette explore:

  • The Hormone-skin connection
  • The DUTCH Test for hormonal balance & clear skin
  • Early detection of breast cancer
  • The empowered path to healing: taking charge of your health rather than giving our power away
  • Detoxifying the hormones, specifically estrogens
  • The 3 phases of detoxification
  • The pill’s effect on your body and hormones
  • Why you want to track your cycle
  • The link between rosacea, hormones and SIBO
  • 80% of your immune system is in your gut
  • The DUTCH test to read hormones and estrogen imbalance
