Do you have brittle, breakable nails? Is your hair dry, dull, and unable to grow? Do you have skin issues and stubborn acne that continues to pop up? If you answered yes to any of these, then this episode will be a gamechanger for you.

Jenn Merrick is a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and Paramedical Esthetician. She helps women interpret the state of their hair, skin, and nails to understand what is going on internally with their health. Whether it is a thyroid issue, live issue, hormonal imbalance, or anything else, Jenn is determined to help her clients get to the root cause and make real change in their internal health which helps their external confidence.

Throughout this episode, Jenn talks about how the health of our skin, hair, and nails can give us insight into what our body is experiencing internally. She shares the commonalities among her clients, signs to look for in hair, skin, and nails to understand your internal health, why we get period acne, and so much more.

[Cycle Day 13 – Inner Spring]

With 15+ years as a Paramedical Esthetician, Jenn Merrick transitioned from her Dermatology office in 2020. She’s a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, level 3 Restorative Wellness Practitioner, and founder of Jenn Merrick Wellness, LLC.

Jenn’s own health transformation ignited her nutrition passion. Working with women addressing skin issues, she saw the link between nutrition and skin health. Often helping burnt-out mothers with digestion, hormones, and nutrition, Jenn’s journey revealed powerful connections. This led to Jenn Merrick Wellness, her holistic approach to skin health and overall well-being.
