    Skin Health 101 and All Your Esthetician Questions with Kayla Renner

    Welcome back to the CYCLICAL Podcast! I don’t know if you’re like me, but skin care stuff often overwhelms me. Should I try retinol? Or a vitamin c serum? What if my skin is dry? Or oily? These are questions I’ve always wanted to ask an expert and finally today is the day I get to learn from expert holistic esthetician Kayla Renner!


    Kayla is such a wealth of information and I love that her approach is both external as an esthetician AND investigative of internal causes for skin problems. 


    In this episode we talk about:

    How the skin works and why our skin may have different needs
    Oily vs dry skin and how the approach differs
    Her true root cause method to help women have glowy skin
    Holistic anti aging for skin
    Products and ingredients to steer clear of
    Her recommended morning and evening routine
    The products she loves and the ones we can leave behind
    And so much more

    Kayla is a licensed Holistic Esthetician, Life Coach, and Herbalist with almost 10 years of experience in the skincare field. She is passionate about guiding women into harmony by using what she calls “Skin Therapy” and the magic of herbs! Skin Therapy is much more than your typical facial and blindly applying skincare products at home. It’s about intention and compassion towards the body. She cultivates a space for clients to relax and rejuvenate during a holistic facial, and tools for her clients to use at home like Sculptural Face Massage and other ancient beauty rituals. Kayla believes all women deserve to feel seen when struggling with skin imbalances and deeply cares about healing the body from the inside out.

    Welcome back to the CYCLICAL Podcast! I’ve worked with a few women over the years who have had breast implants and dealt with MANY odd and spiraling symptoms. While Breast Implant Illness (BII) is not a medically recognized condition, a quick google search or hashtag search of #BII will quickly illuminate THOUSANDS of women who have had their health decline as a result of breast implants. And that is why this conversation is important  - so you feel informed and can make the right decisions for your health



    I’ve been eager to have this conversation and that’s why I am ecstatic to chat with Dr. Stacy Barczak Baker - a naturopath AND someone who has personally lived through BII. I also HIGHLY recommend looking at the hashtag #bii on Instagram. You’ll quickly see thousands of women’s stories with breast implant illness



    In this episode we talk about:


    What breast implant illness is

    Why doctors won’t recognize BII as a real diagnosis

    Stacy’s story getting implants and when she saw her health decline

    Common symptoms of BII

    Why further detox and support is needed even after removal

    How to find a doctor to remove your implants safely  

    And so much more

    Restoring Your Libido Naturally

    Restoring Your Libido Naturally

    Welcome back to the CYCLICAL Podcast! A common reason women have worked with me over the years has been to restore their libido. The subject of restoring the libido though is a BIG conversation with lots of layers and considerations. Hint: you’re not deficient in some random supplement - we have to look at WHY your body has decreased in sexual desire!



    In this episode I go through the physical and emotional layers to libido, what can cause us to feel like our libido has decreased and then also practical tools and tips to restore our libido back to our baseline!



    In this episode I talk about:


    What the libido really is

    What is normal for a libido

    Causes of a low libido and important considerations

    My process of looking at “low libido” and what it needs to restore itself

    How trauma and stress affect our sexual desire

    How our relationships can influence our sexual desire

    When in the month our libido is usually higher

    What to look for with pain with sex

    And so much more

So knowledgeable!!

Cassandra is so incredibly knowledgeable with all things period. I have been listening to her podcasts and following her on social for months and learn something new every time I listen! I’m a 27 year old woman and first learned about the difference phases of my cycle from Cassandra. She is doing amazing work teaching women about their bodies and how to to truly feel their best and support themselves in all phases. Her podcast is a powerhouse of info if you want to learn more about your body and feel your very best. Thanks for all you share Cassandra!

Beneficial, relevant, beautifully positive

Dr. Cassandra and her guests always have the best information! She keeps it relevant and doable while still bringing truth in a loving way. I have learned so many things about myself and also gained tools to help my teenage daughters navigate womanhood. The time I have spent listening and absorbing information through this podcast as well as time privately with Dr. Cassandra has been invaluable. You will not be disappointed- take a listen, take a class or just invest in time with her-worth every penny, and every minute. Love, love, love Dr. Cassandra!

Supportive and Informative!

Cassandra makes you feel so supported. I feel like I get the information I need without being sold on some new fad or idea, and she genuinely wants the information on how to treat our bodies with nourishment and love to be spread to the masses. I love the wide range of topics and the guests she has on the show. I feel like every time I listen it’s an excellent way to use my time - I learn something new and feel relief that I’m not alone!
(I really don’t like writing reviews but this podcast deserves the time to write one! It’s powerful to take back control of your body!!)
