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.

Clearing Hormonal Acne Post Birth Control with Caralyn Hale

February 28, 2022

Welcome back to the CYCLICAL Podcast! In this episode I’m welcomed by holistic acne expert Caralyn Hale. I know acne is one of the BIGGEST struggles so many women have and that’s why I’m so excited for this episode. 

Hormonal acne is common in our adolescence but also years later - especially when coming off of hormonal birth control. Hormonal acne can also be harder to heal because until we address the hormone component, many different approaches may not work.

In this episode we talk about:

  • What hormonal acne is
  • What hormone imbalances can create acne
  • Nutritional deficiencies and acne
  • Do we take a topical approach? Or an internal approach?
  • How to support the body after birth control to prevent acne
  • Genuine detox for healthy skin (not the detox you think)
  • Addressing excess androgens
  • What the gut and liver have to do with skin
  • Foods for clear skin
  • And so much more

”Healthy” Nutrition Habits Wrecking Your Hormones

”Healthy” Nutrition Habits Wrecking Your Hormones

February 7, 2022

Welcome back to the CYCLICAL Podcast! Wooh, my first episode of 2022 and I’m coming out the gate with a potent podcast on all the less than awesome nutrition advice we’re often bombarded with. The problem with these habits is they are often not conducive to balanced hormones! So if we’re living these habits and also dealing with hormone and period problems it may be time to look closer at these nutrition beliefs.

Please note I am talking about calories and weight in this episode

In this episode I talk about:

  • How some of our nutrition beliefs don’t always align with our biology
  • Why nutrition sciences don’t always apply to women
  • The big nutrition habits that may be causing far more harm than good for your body and hormones
  • Why low calorie diets are so concerning
  • Why it’s empowering to shift our perspective on what health looks like Are carbs bad? Is gluten bad? Or dairy?
  • And so much more
