#37: Getting to the root cause of your acne with Viven Allread.

Today I have the privilege of speaking with Viven Allred, a Naturopathic Nutritional Therapist, and owner of Viva Natural Health. Viven works primarily with women struggling with hormonal imbalances and digestive issues, educating them about the healing properties of food, nutritional supplements, lifestyle and other natural remedies. Viven studied for 3 years at the College of naturopathic medicine, after struggling with her own health issues, for many years during early adulthood, including hair loss, cystic acne, amenorrhea, PCOS & gut infections.
