This week we’re welcoming Naturopathic Doctor, Dr. Nigma Talib, whose high-profile client list includes Rosie Huntington-Whitely, Penelope Cruz and Charlotte Tilbury. Dr. Nigma is booked and busy with a six-month waitlist, and she’s also author of the best-selling book, “Younger Skin Starts In The Gut.” Today, Dr. Nigma helps us understand why gut health triggers like wine, sugar, dairy and gluten could be written all over our face.

Plus, we cover:

  • The relationship between inflammation and aging 
  • How to know whether stress is the root cause of your skin ailment
  • Tips on finding the most effective probiotics for your gut – and whether topical prebiotics really do anything
  • Gutcare 101: What Dr. Nigma eats in a day to look and feel her absolute best, and why she never drinks coffee in the morning
  • Do Eastern and Western medicine approaches have to clash? What she says to naturopathic naysayers
  • What to expect at your first naturopathic doctor appointment
  • Plus! A sneak peek into the topic Dr. Nigma is tackling for her upcoming book
