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.
