This episode is for you if you're interested in learning more about GLP-1, your metabolism or gut health. OR if you're a practitioner who utilizes probiotics — or works with metabolic health — in your practice.

    Liz Wolfe is a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and Certified Personal Trainer who encourages women - all women, but especially the 40-ish crowd—to embrace their inner (and outer) badass using nutrition, supplement, and fitness strategies that serve both their metabolism and their sanity. Liz is the author of the Wall Street Journal Bestseller Eat the Yolks, host of the award-winning Balanced Bites Podcast, creator of the Own Your Metabolism and Own Your Fitness programs, and founder of the IdealAge line of supplements and (soon!) skincare.

    Skin Vitality & Natural Botox with The Facial Cupping Expert | Ep 314

    Finally, the long awaited episode with The Facial Cupping Expert, Sakina Di Pace, is here!  Learn more about how facial cupping can be beneficial for reducing fine lines and wrinkles, cysts, and cystic acne. While facial cupping is growing in popularity, Sakina wants to ensure that folks are educated in how to use their cups appropriately and when cupping may actually not be the best fit - like hormonal acne and rosacea.
    Sakina has practiced acupuncture globally for the past 12 years. She began using Facial Cupping, in addition to her needles, to help alleviate the pain of patients with nerve conditions such as peripheral neuropathy, and to stimulate muscle strength in paralysis cases such as Bell’s Palsy. Realising how beneficial Facial Cupping was to her patients, she decided to incorporate the technique into her cosmetic acupuncture treatments. 
     
    Sakina is the creator of the ‘6-step Facial Cupping Protocol for Beginners’, along with a popular and accredited ‘Facial Cupping For Professionals Course’ that helps teach those who want to become qualified in offering facial cupping to their clients.

Simply the best!

Erin Holt presents information in an intelligent way with compassion and humor. She looks at health conditions through many lenses. It’s nice to have a well rounded approach, looking at many different conditions, especially for people who have struggled with symptoms and no answers. Erin Holts podcast is my favorite thing of the week. You can tell her heart is in every thing she does. I love you Erin, keep leading the revolution!!

Awesome!

I found this podcast a few years ago after learning that my cortisol levels were high. I was looking for a podcast episode on how to balance my hormones and found The Funktional Nutritionist podcast. I have been listening to all the episodes that were interesting to me and I am in love. I have learned a lot from Erin, and even joined the CCP during C19 which was very helpful. I was able to lower my cortisol levels, and learn so much about my health.
