Toni Sicola on Gut Health

Today’s guest, Toni Sicola (#47), is the sister-in-law of my good friend and former co-worker at Marketo … Dayna Rothman!

As it turns out, Toni’s husband (Loren) messaged me on Facebook and suggested I chat with his wife – a person he felt was very passionate.

Loren was right! Toni and I hit it off immediately. She had me at bone broth.

Are you ready to learn more about Toni and her passion for GUT HEALTH?

During this episode …

  • We talked about the percentage of people (99.9%!) who consume content yet never tell you – the creator of said content. Crazy!
  • Toni shared how she uncovered her passion – through a personal struggle with her own health problems, specifically a life-long battle with acne.
  • Toni talked about how after drinking homemade bone broth for two straight weeks … her acne was gone. Literally gone. Cleared up entirely. As Toni said, this was amazing, especially “after 20 years of drama and who knows how much money” trying to cure her acne. Wow!
  • Toni shared more about BONE BROTH … and mirepoix!
  • Toni talked about how she “discovered” bone broth.
  • Toni discussed how she hopes – some day – to turn her passion into a business.
  • We talked – briefly – about stress and wellness.
