Nutritional supplements are a controversial topic in medicine. Many doctors believe there is no benefit to taking supplements, and you’re paying money to basically make expensive pee. Many holistic health practitioners disagree. So what does science say?
On this episode of The Holistic Plastic Surgery Show, I’m getting to the bottom of anti-aging nutritional supplements. Do they work? Will they actually help your skin to look younger? And if so, what nutritional supplements do I recommend?
I’ll give you the straight scoop on which nutritional supplements you should consider taking, and where you can get them.

Also known as time restricted eating, this method of limiting the hours in which you eat has helped millions of Americans to lose weight, improve their brain function, and even de-age their bodies. But how should one do this, and exactly what benefits can you achieve?
On this episode we’re going to dive deep into intermittent fasting. I’m joined by an expert in all types of fasting, and she teaches her patients and followers that intermittent fasting is a great option to improve your health and give yourself the body you’ve always wanted.

What’s the difference between functional medicine and conventional medicine?
While conventional medicine focuses on interventions, such as medications and surgery, to tackle acute and chronic medical issues, functional medicine is focused on finding the underlying root causes of illness. A relatively new field that is practiced by physicians, nurse practitioners, chiropractors, naturopaths, and others, functional medicine often combines dietary and lifestyle changes to enact profound improvements in health.
So how can functional medicine help you optimize your hormones?
On this episode of The Holistic Plastic Surgery Show, I’m joined by the author of Your Longevity Blueprint, a guide to optimal health, specifically hormone health, which focuses on the principles of functional medicine. She shares with us simple tips to naturally optimize hormones, the difference between how your body reacts to natural vs. synthetic hormones, top nutrients to boost estrogen metabolism, and a whole lot more.

Thyroid disease is a major issue in the United States. An estimated 20 million Americans suffer from thyroid disease, and up to 60% of them are unaware that they even have it.
Traditionally physicians have treated thyroid disease using medications, radioactive iodine, and even surgery. But scientists and doctors are now finding that the key to thyroid health just might lie in a simple chemical – iodine!
In this episode of The Holistic Plastic Surgery Show, I’m joined by one of the country’s most prominent naturopathic endocrinologists who has just written a book called “The Thyroid Reset Diet.” He’s discovered that the key to thyroid health- whether you are hypothyroid, have Hashimoto’s, or other thyroid issues- lies in your exposure to iodine.

Please join me and my good friend, Dr. Alan Christianson, as we reveal How to Reset Your Thyroid by Changing Your Diet.
I decided to change things up a little bit on this week’s episode of The Holistic Plastic Surgery Show. Instead of a traditional style interview, I thought it’d be fun to play a game of Would You Rather with a dermatologist friend of mine.

I have a ton of these, and we’ll both answer them, so you’ll see where a dermatologist compares to a holistic plastic surgeon. It’s a fun but educational episode.
Please join me and Dr. Dustin Portela as we play a game of Would You Rather.
