"All right, so much more to come in this interview. This is going to be a fascinating one for you. And so stick with me, I'll be right back with kashyyyk. Kasia, welcome to the show. I'm super excited to dig into DNA. It's a pleasure. It's awesome to be here with you. Yeah, well, we're going to be talking all things about DNA, what we should be knowing about it, how it can impact our weight, our health, how it can be actionable. I'd love to start first with how you got into this because I've gone through your testing. It is the most extensive, but also actionable testing I've ever seen. So where did you, what made you decide to dig deep into all of this? Yeah, well, thank you for acknowledging that that was really the goal from where to answer your question. Where did I get into this? I was sick. You know, so many of these functional medicine stories start with what you find that because whatever you have in your lap just doesn't work and I was the same, I came from outside of the industry and I had crazy migraines, which was probably the worst part. I would have to leave home and be driven home or leave the office, I should say, be driven home by my business partner. Eczema psoriasis, depression issues, gut issues, all kind of happen at the same time.

"Story in the past. We've talked about them a few times, yeah. Yeah. People claim that it can help calm an irritated scalp. I see a bunch of oils and plants and I'm doubtful. The other product that seems very interesting is from glad skin, which is actually marketed specifically for eczema, the shampoo bar. Now my derm was not very helpful in terms of recommendations as set for the find a mild shampoo recommendation. It sounds like standard medicine, right? I hope you can offer some guidance since I'm at a loss now. I have been using the same shampoos for years and trying to change is giving me a headache on top of the itchy scalp. Love your show. Well, thanks, Lorena. Okay, two products asked about here Valerie, but first, do you have an eczema issues with this and your scalp or anything? I don't, but mister cosmetic chemist does. Oh, there you go. So a little bit of experience. So in the first one, we actually talked about hair story. We talked about that. I don't know about 40 episodes ago. Go through our archives and you can find it. But so this product is a shampoo and they listen as shampoo and air quotes, I think it's kind of like a creamy conditioner. All right, yeah, this is one of those co washes, but for cleansing, I see what she says, cleansing says they have peppermint oil, sunflower seed oil, evening, first of all, people. Why are there oils in a shampoo? Shampoo. That's not. You shouldn't have oil in your shampoo. Shampoos remove the oil. But that's just a formulation. I am. But another issue I have as far as if you're trying to make a gentle shampoo, putting essential oils and oils in it that have the potential to be irritating. That doesn't seem like a good idea. No, it does not. There's a lot of stuff in this formula. That honestly, if you removed it, the product would probably perform the same. So there's just a lot of things where it's like, you know, why are you even putting this in there? I mean, they're calling chamomile extract a non key ingredient. But why even have it in there? I mean, that's just my opinion, but I'm a minimalist formulator. I try not to put things in there that don't need to be in there. But there are a lot of essential oils in this product. And if you have sensitive skin, if you have rosacea, if you're prone to eczema, I probably would not recommend a product with essential oils or superfluous plant extracts. Yeah, plant extracts can be fine for a lot of people, but of all the things that you're going to have allergic reaction to, the first thing you would look at are plant extracts and essential oils. Even before you'd look at synthetic ingredients. And that's mainly because we evolved alongside these plants and plants use oils and other compounds to fight off predators or organisms that might harm it. And that's why natural ingredients we've often often develop allergic reactions and sensitivity to these things like poison ivy, for example. But even some of these other ingredients. And so that's why natural ingredients can often be more irritating than synthetic ingredients which our bodies have not developed any sort of reaction to. So I wouldn't for eczema, this does not seem like the product to go with. Yeah. Well, the shampoo bar is interesting because it's a simple formula,

"The imperfections too. It's hard to the computer is going to show you what it looks like perfectly. And that's not what you're going to be able to achieve. No. And so maybe someone will pick up a couple of things. I don't think that this is going to be the norm in how people try products. You still want to go to Sephora or Ulta or wherever you shop for your beauty products and try things on and, oh, let me look at that. Let me look at this. Right. Touch it, feel it, smell it. Yeah. You miss all of that stuff by just this digital painting, I guess. But it's fun to play around with in the way that Instagram or SnapChat filters are. Yeah. Valerie, time for celebrity launch news and ding ding ding ding, one of my predictions from last year, actually. True, right? Who was it? Well, remember one of my predictions was Pete Davidson. Manscaped names Pete Davidson, a brand partner and shareholder. So I guess isn't exactly that he launches online, but it's his brand now. Yeah, he has his shareholder. He's in this four year partnership with this brand. He owns part of the company. And this is what the reason I predicted this is because he was dating Kim Kardashian. I don't know if there's one or not. But, you know, those cardassians are all into launching beauty lines. So I figured, oh, he must be doing this too. And indeed, now that they select Saturday Night Live, he can focus on his manscaped brand. Oh my gosh, well, I guess we're just on trend. We're on the pulse. We know it's going to happen, right? What's really in the scorecard at the end of the year? Remember, Mary gave me that extra point. All right. Well, I did see an interesting article in WWD magazine today. And it was called as fame enough to sell beauty. Because the gaggle of celebrity launches that are occurring is really just so excessive. From Hailey Bieber to Pharrell Williams to Idris Elba to Scarlett Johansson and Lady Gaga's relaunch. It's really crazy just how many brands are popping up.

What makes a sunscreen water resistant is there a shampoo that can help with eczema and what do we think of doctor Sam bunting's skin care products? The first Valerie, some of our general chit chat. How are you today? You know, I'm doing okay. Today's the two year anniversary that my beloved olive passed away. Oh, I'm sorry. So a little sad day in the cosmetic chemist household. Yeah, that's too bad. It's always sad when a pet or really any family member or a friend passes away. Yeah, so we're just going to celebrate him today. That's fun. You know that does remind me of a book I just finished reading called 4000 weeks. Okay, I'm trying to do the math how much time that is. It refers to the 4000 weeks is like an approximate average of a person's lifespan. Okay. All right. It's a time management book. And they go through and essentially try to convince you that the best way to manage your time is to figure out the stuff you want to do and come to the realization that there's a lot you're not going to be able to do. What you can't do, you'll be happy. It sounds interesting, you know, I'm going to be 40 in September. And I'm just kind of crunching the numbers here on that, and I've consumed over half my 4000 weeks. Ah. Well, you know what's going to happen to me in 185 days? What? That is going to be the official midpoint of my life. Okay. Because you see, I have decided that I'm living until November 11th, 2076. Okay. So what you put me at a 107. So yeah, we're doing the math here. Yeah, so I have like right now I have 19,836 days left to be on this planet and make beauty brains podcast episodes. But 185 days from now, my midpoint year, so I'm going to have a big, big celebratory moment then. Oh, good. Good, hopefully I'll be there celebrating with you. Would be passed 4000 weeks. Yeah. Exactly. That'll get us to about 5500 weeks or something. Yeah, oh my gosh. All right, are we ready for some beauty science news? Yeah.

"So it's trying to eject and get rid of this thing that's causing imbalance. And it comes out in our emotions and our behaviors. Well, it also comes out physically. I mean, I was going through a challenging scenario where I knew a relationship that I was in needed to end. But I was staying in this certain relationship for longer than it needed to be. And I started to get a never in my life have had this. When I started to get like eczema breakouts on my skin and different parts of my body and I was like, what is this? And I was like, never had this in my life. I started doing all the allergy tests. I had no allergies. I was like, maybe I'm having too much almond butter or freaking, I don't know, gluten, what is it? Is it dairy? What is it? Eliminating all these foods, nothing is changing. And I'm like, well, maybe it's just, I'm just going to live with this forever, then. And okay, and literally I kid you not. Once this the dynamic of the relationship shifted and transitioned, my body is going away. And I was just like, this is crazy. Like the physical symptoms is gone. This eczema outbreak or whatever. Which I thought was going to keep spreading all over my body. It's now gone. And it's crazy when, like you're saying, we need to be aware of the signals. We need to be aware of the emotions, the feelings, the frustrations, the thoughts, the sadness, the anger and be aware of them, and we also be aware of our physical symptoms. Absolutely. Absolutely. Am I drained? Am I emotionally tired? Am I frustrated and triggered all the time? And do I have eczema? Is my hair falling out? I don't know. It might be losing my vision. Something. Am I getting heart palpitations? Like you've got to be noticing the physical symptoms as well from the emotional stress. Exactly. That is so important what you said. And fascinating that you've got you highlighted a key psycho neurobiological link and the most recent book that you continue to make is that one that you need to speak about. I talk about some of the things that clinical trial that I've talked about some of those impacts. But this so many so many studies around that link between unmanaged mind and menstrual and the impact on our body. So it's directly like this. You were going through this relationship that was not good for you. You hadn't dealt with these issues yet properly. So that combination was your mind was an unmanaged place. And that would generate a lot of basically toxic energy weight, gravitational fields, electromagnetic fields literally through your brain and your body. So therefore nothing you would have had high gamble at high too much high gamma tumor type beta, probably not enough oxygen and blood flow in your brain that constricted a bad basis around your heart. All things that the immune system would have been automated because that's most immune response. So everything was genetic weaknesses and generally when we had the toxic stress. And it's come to the generations that just happens as mutations that happen through generations. And they dormant in this activated and the mind is the activating factor. So manifest in so many different ways. So definitely you've kept the nail on the head. You go for the energy tests on the allergies, because we immediately think purely physical, but the physical is dominated by the mind, the physical. You don't have any you can't have expected it. You can only have it if you're alive and generally if it's not a food allergy, there is a mind and I'm dealt with. A mental illness. You have exactly..

"Of you listening are interested in minimalist affordable skin care that just has these effective ingredients. They're going to work for the health of your skin. You know, forget about those perfumes and like the pink packaging, you're like a serious skin aficionado. I hear you. That's why I know you're going to be super excited to hear about a new discovery. It's called glad skin, and these products have been really popular in Europe, but they're just now touching down in the U.S.. So big news. The whole line it's all about non prescription solutions that work differently than like plant based or drug based products that you may have tried before, glad skin targets the underlying nature of healthy skin. So it's all about the skin's microbiome. Glad skin developed a revolutionary protein. It's called microbalance. I know it sounds like it's from Mars, but what it does, it restores the natural balance of the good and bad bacteria that live in our skin. And that's so important whether you have acne, rosacea, or eczema, so they have a line for each of those skin conditions. And for me, it's the redness relief range. I get so much redness MIT zone, especially lately I had this flare up that was so itchy. So I'm always on the hunt for calming skin care that's going to help to reduce that inflammation. I can't have anything that irritates and glad skin definitely fits the bill. It's going to help me to rebalance that skin microbiome as it moisturizes, still need to get that moisture, it doesn't have any harsh ingredients, which I really appreciate. And it really is helping to visually reduce the appearance of redness. For me, that's the difference between a good skin day and a bad skin day. I just feel like my skin is upset..

"I mean, I have lots of feelings about people having a sluggish thyroid and all those things as well. But I know. Too. Everything drives the other thing. So if you had like one simple word of advice on eczema to give people what would that be? It would be that you totally have options. You haven't tried everything and to try to back up and be an objective scientist first and take the emotion out of it. Because the more emotionally we drive things, even though that our health is really emotional, it's really hard for us to make gains because we attach that to it. So we have to step back and try to be objective. And make the list and back up and kind of look at the big picture of it. And if you create a bullet point, or you have kind of a timeline and you can't quite figure out or see something, you might be able to then use that work that you did and share it with someone else and they may be able to pick it out really quickly and easily for you. Plus if you're bringing emotion into it, you're going to bring stress into it, right? Yeah. I mean, that's that is the most complicated thing for us as practitioners is every person we take on. We have to have the space and capacity for any kind of emotional baggage that they're going to bring with them, that they're not handling on their own. That is the truth. So I can tell who doesn't have a therapist immediately. Yeah. We refer them to do work on that sometimes. If we can tell it's going to really get in the way of everything we try, we're like, why waste your time and money on supplements and testing? If this is going to always be there. So let's deal with this trauma or whatever the stressor is first. And then we can do our job. There's always going to be an emotional factor to every single thing..

"But I think you said, what's the relationship with food? With food and eggs? I have it's funny. I really come full circle. My very first case is way, way, way, way, way back when, because as a dietician by trade, I'm an interest in food, right? And so food is this foundational it is medicine. And so I actually had success with food interventions or in early practice with amazing clients, and we ended up with good food relationship afterwards, which was important. But the short version is, of course, that food sensitivities are a product typically of stress chemistry and gut dysbiosis or good imbalances, et cetera, and all the things we were talking about. And so my goal, most people I see have a healthy diet anyway, I might make a few tweaks here and there that could be provoking. Usually I'm thinking about histamine inducing things. So just so I can calm the skin down short term. I think that's actually your guess as approach as well. And then deal with it actually in real life. I want to reduce the fire. I want to quit feeding the fire. And then I want to reduce the core problem. And then it's fine. And if I can not adjust the diet as much as possible, I mean, sometimes there's some things that are big eczema triggers. I like to just do everything in one fell swoop, but I think it's, I think it just depends on the person. What I want to avoid is like extreme restriction, long term that goes, never goes anywhere. There's no positive road that that leads to. So there are things you can physically all of it, yeah. All of it, yeah. So you can look at the top. I would say in general, you could look at the top allergens and explore that. So I like to, again, do it in one fell swoop so I kind of have like a you guys probably have this too. It's just sort of like, let's do the opposite of those things and also eat really nourishing foods and then see if there's any change and then add it back. I'd rather do that. Personally, then I remove this for a week, and then I remove this for a week. That feels like exhausting to me. Yeah, I don't like it at all. So it's kind of sort of the way I approach food. It just depends on what the baseline is. If the baseline is restrictive, I'm going to be looking at simply improving moving toward the most nourishing thing possible within their comfort zone. It's always going to be about expansion. And also, I just kind of am a realistic human being that wants to enjoy life, so I think that actually everyone else is a lot like that too, even if they were really gung Ho on restriction for a while, I believe that there will be a time where that's not the case for them. Even if they're in a season where they're really excited about it. And if you want to get tomatoes thrown at you online, just say something like that out loud, right? I don't need to eliminate everything and people are like, that's the carnivore diet is the best thing ever. And I'm like, sounds like you have good issues. To be honest, you know, you're just starving all the time. Good bacteria. Yeah. Whatever. Whatever, don't call the messenger, just in the obvious. You could say anything online and you're going to get a tax, so. You will. Like, podcasts. I don't hear them throwing the tomatoes. They didn't comment below. And usually you can give it context and Instagram drives me crazy because I'm so long winded. And so it's very difficult for.

"For me has been, okay, great. I can help you fill in the deficiencies and fill in the gaps and help you rebuild cells, but you got to quit killing those cells, if you want to have long-term success with this. And stress drives histamine too. Totally. Totally. It drives everything. It's exciting. You know, but it's also like kind of depressing to research. I mean, ultimately, I want to come around full circle and be inspiring, right? Because it's like, it's just, I think, awareness is our best tool. So that way we can do something different with it. Because the most toxic thing is to have stress and not actually believe that you have a problem with it, or that there's nothing you can do about it, that's the word situation. Is that just like unrealized stress? And I think to other people, your stress probably comes off really clearly, unfortunately. How you project to other people. So so many things about that. I'm going to go one step back too. I want to mention that for the liver environmental one, sometimes it's showing up around the eye is a big one as well. A raccoon eyes, they call it, right? Yeah. Well, it's like Chinese medicine that the liver is connected to the eyes. And I just haven't seen that be. I haven't seen that proven wrong in a case yet. And I actually, in my case, was like that delightfully. So I had I eczema. And I was like the majority of human beings. I always just say, we can't blame ourselves for being humans. So I didn't want to know a lot about eczema. It just wanted to follow me around for my life. And so I kind of blew up into a huge rash and probably around 2015. I had gone to the pool with my kids for a week in a row, and I was actually a traditionally kind of liver ish picture where it showed up just came and went in the winter and I called it dry skin and I called it genetic as people do with these things, right?.

"It's going to look worse and if you're doing physical activity, all the things that you guys are quite familiar with, right? So that's actually the best case scenario. I feel like that's like the most cut and dry to me after that it just gets more layered. A little more complicated. Yeah, and I should mention with that melanated skin. It's not always pink, it can actually turn or pink or red. It can actually turn a little bit darker. And then in general, I also want to mention that from an internal external perspective, we actually unanimously agree that topically there is a Staphylococcus aureus overgrowth. And so I always see a staff overgrowth on the inside as well. I can't really think of an example where that wasn't the case. It's not the only situation, but for sure, it's growing from the inside out, but I would say that it's really hard to get it under control in the skin. If there's an active infection. And when I say that, I mean like oozing, smelly, really angry, just basically very angry. And you can get that cultured, you can get that checked. But that, I mean, if you had like a horrific case, there's probably a real infection going on. And until you get that infection under control, you can try to grow from the inside out all you want, but when everything's on fire on the top, you can't really regrow the grass. So you gotta put out the fire first. So it just is fun. So gut or inflammatory mediated eczema, one that you probably would see, I guess, a lot. I would assume. So usually a little more bright red pink, itchy, whatever, in those typical spots. And then it gets more interesting. So then from there, there's, I call it an environmental AKA liver priority essentially. And that's going to look a little more dry flaky. Those are going to be some of the main signs and symptoms. It might look worse in the winter than the summer, whereas the gut one is going to typically look worse in the summer than the winter. Is there some of the common denominators you might have other signs of not being able to clear things out. They have a heightened sense of smell. You might have some other spots on the skin like cherry angiomas or some other type of interesting thing. It usually kind of sticks out like a sore thumb. But as you guys know, or maybe we don't agree, maybe we do our don't agree about this. I don't think there's like amazing testing to make sure that your liver is doing its best job. I just think you really have to rely on symptoms a bit more than testing because things are going to be pretty messed up before testing is going to look so great. I think that that's something that people don't realize. They're like, well, your liver enzymes are fine. I'm like, your liver, when you're liver enzymes are high, that's when you're in crisis. Yeah, they should be in the teens. Not in the 30s, for sure, or in the hundreds. Yeah. But you can have all kinds of signs. There's all kinds of things brewing. And we have to back up and just be aware that our skin is an elimination. It's a detoxification pathway. And so it's just a safe place for things to show up. If your body doesn't have anywhere else to put the trash. And so that's why when you have topical stat or you have internal staff or other bacterial overgrowth, and that gives off endotoxins. I always use kind of like a dandelion for this example, because I think there's so many good nature analogies of what goes on inside the body, but if you've got a dandelion and it's proliferating and eventually gives off seeds, those are endotoxins. And that's got to go somewhere. So it's sometimes it shows up on the skin. And this.

"She's also the author of the eczema relief diet and cookbook. So we talk a lot about eczema, which we, you know, talking with histamine tolerant patients get a lot of questions on eczema so we wanted to bring on Chris to talk about that. So she goes into what eczema is. The different types of eczema because there are different types. The conventional treatment versus the treatment that we do with functional medicine, you know, the foods that affect eczema and a lot of really great information. So we're really excited for you to listen to this episode. All right, everybody. Chris is here and she is going to talk all about eczema for us. So let's get started, you know, a lot of people don't even know what eczema is. So can you just explain what eczema is and how it's traditionally treated? So there's actually many types of eczema and we could talk about it from a conventional standpoint in a stampede. And we hear the difference, which is good, because there is a difference for sure. Well, the reason, so eczema is essentially inflammatory skin condition, right? It's used interchangeably with atopic dermatitis. Dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, I said atopic dermatitis. So any type of skin inflammation that looks red, rashy, it can look darker, it can look dry and scaly. Technically, a dermatologist will diagnose it appropriately because it does vary from other common skin conditions, namely psoriasis, keratosis pilaris. There are some other varieties that there are many varieties of eczema or atopic dermatitis..

"And you can get the Faraday son. It's amazing. But like, to me, I'm willing to take a hit on a little EMF if the net benefit outweighs that 20 or 30 minutes of exposure. Yeah. But if they're not talking about it and acknowledging, okay, there is a little MF we've done everything we can to make it low. Yeah. If so, how low and what type of EMF are we talking about? Because some of it's worse than others. I'm not that paranoid about a magnetic field for 20 or 30 minutes. If you get in my car with a magnetic field meter, I mean, it almost breaks the thing if you hit the gas. Like the whole cabin. Yeah, the engine's right there. There's no shielding in it. I mean, it's insane. And it's one of the reasons I think myself and other people kind of are susceptible to car lag. Yeah. And just getting fatigued when you drive. So we're being exposed to so much more EMF than we're really aware of. But if you're going to spend money on a health technology, like look for the company that's at least acknowledged it and is making an effort to do something about it. Yeah, for sure. And we have a video I say we, because, you know, I work with flex beams so closely because I love them so much. But the argent helder who is the inventor of the flex beam is just where we launch a video in a couple of weeks where he's really, he's taking he's taking a couple different brands. He's taking the flex beam. He's putting it in a box like creating the Faraday cage that actually measures it so that there's no Wi-Fi signal interruption. Doing all that stuff, so it's kind of he's like, he's cool and nerdy and such an engineer and this whole the whole brand of this portable targeted red light device called the flex beam, a sort of born of his love of his wife, because his wife was having some liver issues and her health was not doing great. And he read a few articles and some research on just like red light therapy and how it would help because the doctors were like, oh, just pharmaceutical pharmaceutical. And he thought, he's very special guy. He's not like you and me. He can read the research and be like, oh, those parts, I can just order them from these 5 places. And so he said, let me just order the parts and do the thing. And made sort of a mock up of very different but mock up of what the flex beam is today used in on his wife. She was feeling better. Neighbors like, oh, I have some eczema stuff going on. I heard you have this bulb. Can I use it? And sort of spread like that. So I always I love it because I wear my heart on my sleeve a lot and I think, oh, this is a man who loved his wife so much. He was like, I'm gonna go to the ends of the earth and build this contraption and back it by science, but then have it work, which just feels like a beautiful story. Yeah..

So look for something with sensitive skin you have to understand what is causing your skin to have these reactions and it could be a couple of classes of ingredients. Could be a lot of things usually big the big things that you want to Avoid things like fragrance or botanical extracts. And that's because those typically contain Allergen compounds that can inflame skin additionally Things like retinoids can also be are really aggravating for xm alike skin and then other things like proteins. Mr cosmetic chemist has Eczema and he really can't use a lot of things. Like proteins orlando and in them and these really big compounds that are great for the skin and our finding if you have challenges but You know and being an animal base compound can Contain some ingredients in that can You know flare Skin up so it depends like what kind of gets you and working with your dermatologists to make sure that you're avoiding those things As well in your skin care routine. I think that's one of the keys is that there's no general advice. That's going to be applicable to everybody Because sensitive skin is different forever Some of it is what you consider to be sensitive and an ingredient might be terrible for you perfectly fine for somebody else in. They might even think that they have sensitive skin but they can tolerate ingredient so it really comes down to the individual an individual experimenting with different products You said you had a body wash that you used I don't i don't know what it was. But if we had the ingredient list maybe there's something that has a comparable ingredient list that is still on the market. And i would recommend that you stick with that or tried angry..

"We know that diseases are inflammatory diseases. Practically every disease is a disease of inflammation at the cellular level. The cell is on fire. So it just depends. Is it a brain cell or a kidney. Cell is a gasoline or kerosene. But it's always a fire. So that's inflammation so. The goal is to live in anti-inflammatory life with all of what that means and it takes a long time to really dial that down completely for an individual but you just get started. Professor fasano and his team published this year. He said and this is the quote on the the title of the article. These guys don't exaggerate. You know because people would love to take him down and say look with this guy cena but he's so careful. in his language. The title of his article all disease begins in the parentheses leaky gut. All disease begins in the leaky gut. Well what about alzheimer's all disease. What about rheumatoid arthritis all dizzy. What m s ought psoriasis eczema. Migraines all disease begins in the leaky gut and this is what they're teaching our cutting edge physicians at the top medical school in the country. Right now is that there are five pillars in the development of all chronic inflammatory diseases and if your listeners understand that there are five picture that this is the big kahuna concept. If you understand this concept than all of the information that you pick up in podcast like yours or in books that you read like mine or in summits and things you're able to compartmentalize that information into one of the five pillars so that you can hold it because there's so much information our world today we get overwhelmed really easily

"We have a tendency to think that glowing can be achieved as the result of what we put on our skin as opposed to what we put in our bodies in fact we spent over a billion dollars collectively on prescriptions and over the counter products to cure acne but eliminating acne as best approach as an inside job. Dr hemming recently spoke about this with his colleagues at the ultra wellness center. Todd lopin and dr elizabeth bow him. The skin is contiguous with the guts of. I draw a line on the skin. And i keep drawing a line and go down my tongue. Go into my gets done on my stomach and intestine. I'm still on the same surface. So oftentimes you know mark. Is that thought of that. Yeah it's a cool. That's how i explained to patients. So the skin is contiguous with a gun incident echo dermal tissue and when their skin issues think got. It's really a tube tunes outside your body is your gut yes it's true. I mean when patient with psoriasis eczema. Acne rose atia treat their gut. Yeah and i don't put stuff all over their face or on their body exactly as the inflammation. I get rid of that and it's like a. It's a really an american miracle i mean it is a dermatology is not something that i'm an expert in although i was trained as a family doctrine dermatology but i feel like it's we get the most amazing results just for something as simple as fixing the gut and changing the diet. I remember i was having a conversation with my daughter. You know about skincare products you know and okay what what's the best thing to use for my skin and and all of a sudden i realized even though we had been she live with me your whole life you know.

Baby-Led Weaning Made Easy
"eczema" Discussed on Baby-Led Weaning Made Easy
"And really came to me a few years ago when i was in fine us so i started my career asset investment banker on wall street and very different from what i do now and then after a few years of that i started investing i worked for an investment firm in new york city were invested basically in a lot of skin care and beauty brands that you and i probably know use and trust and that was when i saw the behind the scenes of skip care industry and myself you know. I grew up with very sensitive skin. A lot of skin issues You name and i'm particularly tuned. To what i put on my body and when i working investing and saw what was going on behind the scenes with a lot of peace so called green clean natural. Skincare bronze i started a question. What i was doing I saw you know the big billion dollar loss. It's that you and i hear about in the news. That's the tip of the iceberg. That's the stuff that gets published because it's well a billion dollar lawsuit. I saw a lot of stuff. That honest mckanie just made me feel really uncomfortable. Especially since i was a consumer of those clean products and i decided to leave you know. Nice paying job in wall street. Start from scratch and learn how to cleats state for better skin care products that actually deliver what they promise. And that was the genesis for ever eaten. And i decided to focus on family skin-care because that was also where the craw ducts and industry ignoring the most and it's really ironic because when we think about who were the most important people are to us. It's our family. It's you know. Babies have the most fragile skin. There are the most precious member of the family. When you're pregnant as a woman you know you're in your most vulnerable delicate state. And i just thought it was really ironic. That products for our most precious family members were being ignored by the industry because that was in where growth and the money was going and so money. Investment was going to beauty products skin care products but not family products. And i wanted to change this. Can i ask you when you were at investment banking firm. Because i know. I mean my specialty is in food like you're one of the first game care brand that i've worked with an affiliate for ever eaten. It's a brand. That i got turned onto actually did an instagram live takeover. Qna with because they had said they were interested in baby led weaning so i got introduced. Meghan who energy to you and dr hartman. Your mom's in medicine which we'll talk about in a second. But when i started using the products as i know nothing about skin care but you can just kind of sense. Feel that they're different as someone who's kind of like adjacent to the conversation. Would you mind backing up. And telling us without a brand bashing of other brands. But what were the things that were concerning to you that you didn't like when you saw like the bigger brands that we're all familiar with either claiming to be all natural. I don't. I don't really know i would love to hear more about that since i'm not even aware of what's happening. Yeah two things. The first thing was you know. I mean we read about news of quality control issues that resulted in really pick lawsuits. And that's really doubt process procedure. And i guess whether brand kerry spotify quality are not and so when we started every eat and you know we kind of went crazy in terms of the number of regulatory consultants and experts that we brought on from the quality management production site. The second thing that i would. I wanted to talk about. Is this greenwash and call it clean washing. That's happening in the industry. It's very confusing to consumers. I'm sure a lot of your mobs your listeners. Have the same problem you know. Just because branson's their hundred percent natural hundred percent organic or ninety five percent natural. What the second media in food it means. Nothing say natural means nothing you can have the most quote unquote unnatural product out there and claim it's natural and in this country. There's nothing to stop you from doing that. Totally an i agree one hundred percent and we have the same problem in skin chair. And so you know just to take that to an extreme poison ivy's at ingredients but it's certainly not safe and so i wanted to take a science back approach because i am that consumer Who has sensitive skin growing up and so that led me to bring on these moms and medicine so we have three dermatologists. Moms who make up our scientific board. We call them our moms and medicine. They were relieved there with me. From the inception our chief scientific officer doctrine joist hang is also the head of stanford's pediatric dermatology department. And so when we talk about you know ever eaten having the safest safety standards. It's really because we have women and moms were at the top of their game from a dermatology perspective but also as moms to help formulate every single one of our products and they're using science and clinical data to back up how we choose gradients and you know certainly we use a lot of great plots base ingredients that happened to be natural and organic when we can but to us. Just because it's natural organic doesn't mean it's safe. We pick science-based approach We use a lot of really great and safe synthetic ingredients as well and at the end of today. We just rely on the research to tell us what is safe to put on your baby's skin and what is not. And i think that was what i saw in my investing job. That was missing that certainty of you know what is hearsay. And what is fact. You know database. And that's what. I wanted to change about every eden and when i started researching your little 'cause we get approached all the time for brands especially three jason defeating always very hesitant in a year when the first brand who worked with outside of feeding because there is this emerging link between the relationship of managing exit and food allergy risk. And i do a lot of work in food allergies and after the episode with you comes out. We will for food allergy awareness month. Be interviewing dr rebecca hartman. Is one of your mom's and medicine. She's a dermatologist. Affiliated with harvard has a child that has exit then went on to have food allergies. And she's gonna speak a lot about the actual research about that in this series. We're talking to the founding women of these different companies. And so i love to hear the background of how you founded the company. One thing i was interested in though was first of all these are big names of the moms and medicine that you have working with you. Who i'm sure are also very verse to working with brands and probably get approached in a lot of ways so it was always like wow. That's pretty amazing that you have the head of pediatric dermatology at stanford and doctors. That are affiliate with harvard. Who are also moms. But who are promoting the brand and then when i was like well this brand probably going to be crazy expensive. I was really surprised to see that. The price point for the amount of science and research that i must imagine goes into this like the price point is fairly reasonable. Was that something that was important to you as you're launching the brand to have it be accessible to you. Know it's not a crazy expensive brand. It's pretty reasonable. Yeah yeah our baby line averages at deloitte when he dollars so it's anywhere from our baby bombs eight nine dollars and then most of our products are as you say pretty attainable and there are other baby products on the market that are truly luxury in a forty fifty dollars out of the people can afford that and so when we created ever eaten. Dr joy is our chief scientific. You know she really wanted to put up products that were not just efficacious and safe but that families could enjoy and of course you know the research that goes behind it. The ingredients that we use are really expensive. We choose the best ones so we're not as cheap as the cheapest brands out there but we worked really hard on our supply chain and our unit economics to make it work so we don't make as much profit some brands we make enough to sustain ourselves and grow the team and grow our business but we care deeply about this being attainable for as many families as we can while it also of course having.

How to Repair Your Skin Barrier With Celebrity Facialist Joanna Vargas
"Let's start with the basics what exactly is your skin's moisture barrier and why is it there. What is the do well. I mean i think you know we talk so much into butte and industry about like wrinkles and bo talks and things like that we forget the skin actually has a function and its function is to be a barrier between us and the environment so the skin's moisture barrier is the outermost layer of your skin. It helps protect the body It helps retain water and moisture It defends against like bacteria in the environment environmental stressors and you know prevents things from penetrating into the skin so that we don't have a reaction so it has like a a very important function for us. It's the fundamental of what the skin does and we talk about it at the least i feel It is the most important part about our skin because it makes us look plump in juicy and healthy and soft when it's healthy and so yeah it's something that's very important. No matter what kind of skin type you have no matter your age okay. Yeah that was gonna be my next question. Like other certain types skin types or skin eight inches that are more prone to having damaged skin barrier. Mostly i'm talking about like the skin on your face. Well i mean. I think for example like winter is a time of year where i think a lot of people experience to some degree Some irritation due to the loss of moisture in the environment. And therefore your skin gets a bit patchy may be if you are out during the day for a long period of time you'll have like readiness on your face but typically you know there's obviously people that have just in their dna some skin sensitivity. You know some psoriasis eczema. That's that has a genetic component you know and then there like the people who have poor digestion they might have some patchiness in readiness and some irritation. But it doesn't it can happen even if you have oily skin. It really depends on what you're using on your your skin. What your habits are in terms of your skin. Those really affected a great deal. And so how do you tell the difference between an impaired skin barrier versus you know wind. Burn or zima or psoriasis. How do you know if your skin barriers been disrupted. Well you know this skin house tendency to to show sensitivity patches. So i i'm sure everybody can remember a time when they've had like a dry patch on their face and may the rest of the skin feels okay or maybe you have my son. Has that right now. So i'm listening with the keenest ear. How old is your son. He's he's six and he's got a patch right beside his cheek that he's had for about six weeks and it just so drier and rudder. Yeah continue my boy who is now fifteen Have that as a younger person also happens easier because they play out. Fight a lot and that really dries you out. You know rose atia redness itchiness itchy skin and share a lot of people have itchy scalp during the winter all of back stock visible. Sign that your your skin. Barrier is malfunctioning so to speak and it needs some soothing and comfort and some rehydration ximines. Psoriasis are more extreme versions of it. which also occur in patches on the skin But there are a lot of you know that you would have to consult a doctor to really determine if it was something that was in your genetic makeup or if it was something caused by something topical or something in your diet like an allergy of some kind right right. Because i feel like that's with With eczema almost like immunity related. Or it's like almost like an immune response rather than it can be absolutely and it can also just mean that you're something that you can't digest properly and so your your bodies having a little bit of trouble. There are a lot of different causes for it. Which is why you know. You can also have a yeast overgrowth in your gut. But that would be things that if i suspected that if you came meant for facial and it looked like that to me i would just send you to a doctor. Not a doctor. So i don't right. I try to stay in the lame a fair and respect that and so how does the skin barrier become damaged or compromised. What are some of the main you know factors you know. A a very common factor would be over exfoliating. I remember when i first became an esa titian in the late nineties. It was like a fashion to have cholic acid in every single. Step of your routine. In how like in the beauty industry like ingredients. Become like the thing. And you wanna put it on in every step like i had clients that were using a glycol at wash ugly colic toner a glide colleague serum and moisturizer and everybody's skin was like flaky and read and sensitize. It was very hard to give atias to those people but also sun damage can cause it. You know Prescription acne medications and prescription retinol formulas can cause it. I've seen people use essential oils essential oils on their face and they get Compromised if you if you wash your face in the shower shower water is way too hot for your face back could cause it Chemical peels flying too much back in in the before time when we used to travel places on even air conditioning in caused so mike mobs of different causes But usually i would say the number one offender is over exfoliating or over. You know acclaimed being over eager in the chemical kill type department. That sort of stuff now. I i have a follow up question if you don't mind about is the prescription retinol because you know my skin does get extremely dry when i use it and And it starts to become red. And i feel like that's expected you kind of expect this dryness. So what is the difference between dryness and compromise skin barrier. Is there one. Well sure i mean dryness is the beginning of it right you don't you don't want your skin to be overly dry because that that is compromising gonna lead to you know craziness which will lead kind of like the the compromising actors like your. Your skin won't be able to take as much stress from the environment as the result of that overly dry situation. You're creating. I don't have a lot of clients anymore that use prescription retinal because there are so many great over the counter formulas. That don't do that. So i i feel like that you know. I've been in sedition for over twenty years. That's changed a great deal at least in new york. But i think you know the difference between having you know when you like right now. I'm extremely dry. And my skin feels a little bit tight but it's not read in. It's not flakier itchy when it starts to become itchy in certain spots. That's when you know you've crossed over into a compromised moisture barrier and that and you know you really should wait until that point to start treating it if this dried tight feeling. I'm going to have to handle that today. So it doesn't

Clean Beauty in the Era of Misinformation With Cosmetic Chemist Jen Novakovich of The Eco Well
"So we're really starting to see this awakening of cosmetic scientists within the scientific community. You know really standing up and speaking out against the wellness industry as you said, and clean beauty marketing on social media and on Youtube. So what are your thoughts about this movement as part of the movement does really bubbling up right now? I think it's Great I. Think this is one of the positives that is coming from the clean and wellness space or quote Unquote Green. Space it is frustrating scientists and we're now starting to show up in forced on social media. It's also fostering collaboration communication on. Its fostering creativity where now starting to think I know at least I am, how can we reach better? Can Moore's? That's for example, influencing the influencers in bringing them on our team so that we can make this information marks. So that's something I. Think is really interesting in a positive. That is coming from the misinformation that is kind of overwhelming Not, just in our industry, it's kind of overwhelming through air right and do you believe the word clean should be removed from the beauty lexicon or is there use for that language? I would love for it to be removed. It perpetuates so much undue fear. It puts a lot of blame on consumers. It reinforces the idea that. If something bad happens in someone's life. It's because of the products they were saying they were purchasing dirty products and then they eventually got cancer. It's your fault because you wrong products. That's toxic I personally think in really unhealthy, it gives people a lot of anxiety. And a lot of the Times. The anxiety is undo because the products are demonstrably safe. They're pulling fearmongering to capture that idea from consumers like we wanna buy the best things for our family. We WanNa buy things that are going to damage the environment. These are things that we're all. With good cause concerned about right and like. I would love for it to be removed because ultimately the movement. From what I've seen I, believe is underpinned by pseudoscience in how can we move forward to do better if we're not actually informing our decisions by actual scientific evidence your whole subject matter is all about scientific communication. So what about the words chemicals when you hear about chemical free and that sort of thing and beauty? Why is it so loaded? Well it is waving it on a play that they don't have that science literacy that I think we learned in high school. Maybe even grades little that things are made up of chemicals. Chemicals are the building blocks of life in. So it's perpetuating science illiteracy. And misinformation because everything Beta matter are made up of chemicals rate. When we're thinking about the space of wellness would like multibillion dollar industry now and I think again, this movement that's happening with scientists where they're like, Hey, guys, let's attack some of this misinformation going on. Do you think that there is still any room for anecdotal evidence in your mind like small batch brands that are coming out there like this whole line is based on Aloe, my grandmother used to use it on my wounds or you know real women are writing reviews, online or beauty journalists who have tried hundreds of products just being like I. Love this product like. Is. There any room for that anecdotal evidence? Because that's the only thing is sometimes I'm like you know, does that mean we should only listen to scientists or what's your take on that? No. I. Mean Anecdotal Evidence has its place in Michelle from lab muffin beauty science wrote a great blog, but she has an instagram post. I, think she also has a video on this but. I mean, you can't be so scientific about the stuff because a, there's not that much science to substantiate every single thing in life including in cosmetic products. Everybody's different surf. You like product, which you're GonNa like out of your anecdotal experience than you should use the product that you like. Reviews feedback from customers. To brands as I'm formulating I received anecdotal experience through a reviews from my clients to make a product. So it's important. It's just not something when we're making statements about, for example, this ingredient will interact with Awka pour in your skin cells to enhance cellular hydration. Various claim that should be substantiated with scientific evidence, but this ingredient is going to help or this product should I say is going to help manage Eczema or acting while when you're putting those names on the label. Probably, that's scientific evidence should come in. That's why these products are generally regulated as drugs in cosmetics, but only anecdotal evidence does have a place because that's what informs whether like me like something we don't in just because one product has so much evidence an Mike how much evidence you really have product, but just because it has so much evidence shouldn't. It doesn't mean that everyone out there is going to like it in. Every ruins

Everything You Need To Know About Weaning A Baby
"As a welcome Sophie. Thank you so much for having me like clashes love to help you. Thank you so. Do you want to tell me a little bit more about your training in Germany? What was that like so I did my training at the university hospital in Munich and what I found very interesting is a difference between the German. You can have caste system once once. I came overnight. Started working there. Is that pediatrics. And Germany Puts a really big focus on kind of preventing diseases and having Becky Lynn checkups along the way so in a way if you think about the six week checkup at mom's have in the UK after giving best when mom and baby looked after and this is something that in Germany we will do. Throughout the whole infancy and childhood. Actually and those would be examination that include tests for hearings and test for Iside test for the hips just to make sure that we that we detect diseases very early on and that we can kind of thought reaching got in the early stages to prevent any further complications that arrive. What say this has been a main difference between the two? Her Cat Systems and then Another thing that I found quite interesting is that until I had counted. We're K- I had rarely seen a baby with reflux I think that is just that just might be. Because that may be different. Perceptions offer but rejects means a baby equipment to call us by and but this is a picture that was entirely new to me when. I when I came to the new kate so I thought it was really quite interesting on how we Mitch. So close together But yet perceptions and kind of pension systems can be so different and that is interesting. I definitely love to hear more about you. Know I think sometimes maybe parents think about starting leaning bit earlier than the current guidelines of waiting till about six loans may do that because they worried. That baby has reflux in retail such A. You know it's one of those words that gets loosely thrown around when checking the MOMS. So what is what would you say is true reflux in a baby. I will try to reflect. The baby is when the baby brings up food and either kind of specs our or can swallow it down but also I think in order to caught it reflects it really has to impact the everyday life of a baby so baby that Kind of posits but then carries on drinking carries being happy tired. Maybe not a baby that I would call a reflexive whereas if it's a child and but a severely affected maybe by the acidity arching backwards feeds been having a really bad associations either breast of formula feats and we're not willing to drink anymore not gaining any more weight. I think this is where we have to have a bit of a closer look and learn and see how we can optimize. The situation agrees and also. Sometimes it's at Geena. We we love seeing our babies feed then could be particularly if it's given through a bottle than we might be overfeeding having look at the volumes that pace eating. That's really important as well. So would you say in Germany? The use of anti reflux medication is quite low than yes I have never prescribed. Any anti reflects medication in Germany. Side was really on the way that that does seem to be Kind of a whole team of way you would try to optimize defeating situation and then that mark our you would then prince prescribing medication and which House Afonso quite interesting and I always think before prescribing medications especially one where we haven't really understood what the side effects my long terms and I want to make sure A. I've tried all the measures before war before going into looking into medication. Yes and I agree and I D- most most parents all very much. I I hope maybe those tearing in you know. Try The conservative approach as making sure babies applied especially. I remember attending a talk by simply doctor who was explaining that. Actually the distance between baby's stomach and mounting media really short compared to adults so they to bring up food easily and is nothing to be worried about having small moments a few times a day Isn't it but it's that projectile in back arching very severe. Eczema early on you know they babies of conservation blooded students me because that sort of thing may be more suggestive of the underlying food allergies and I think with reflex Takes a lot of time and patience than trying things So I would always recommend to parents that if they feel insecure about something or you know if I understand that they are trying really hard and they should also ask for help. So could it be that they go to breastfeeding drop in at a local hospital? Maybe that they have a chat with mcclatchy Have a negative eating situation. That's why I'm maybe have a Dietitian. Our pediatrician veggie P in kind of the situation and really get heaven. Ask all the questions wrong. Because I think that's what it is a bit of time getting chills watching your baby in order to get on top of things sometimes.
You Asked, We Answered: Breast Milk, Biting and More!
"So Daphne I'm going to ask you a question that was geared towards you but a lot of people are wondering Do you give your kids formula. And if so what do you like? Oh I do. I do a transition to formula when my kids are off breast milk and I will be honest with you. I've done a bit of research on this because I think that you know it's it's always sort of like finding the right balance of what What you care about and what you can the the reality is I think. They're all pretty much on par. But the one that I go for is something called hall. It's H. O. L. E. and I get it. I get it shipped to me. I get it in bulk. It's it's I think from Germany definitely from the EU. And it's. It's just a brand that I think you know. They they talk about like they're happy. Cows goat milk once or they're happy goats grazing in the hills of Switzerland. And all that they just seem like very happy animals But they they go to great lengths to make sure that sugar and corn syrup are not the first ingredients and in some cases not present at all they They really hold to the utmost standards of of natural end and wholesome foods in in the formula and then what I also do is. I'll supplement with a baby. Dha so a lot of times and maybe more details than people want. You should definitely do your own research. This is what has worked for my family and And you know there are tons of different considerations to take into account but I do add baby. Dha that is It's called baby. Dha think it's Nordic naturals and it is great for baby brain development and development. Has Those healthy? Fats are present in breastmilk. That you definitely want to make sure your baby's getting plenty of While you know while there's still in that that first year of life and beyond all my kids take Dha actually How long do you give them formulas it until they're a yard? You people do two years. I don't do too yours. I'll tell you why I look for an amazing insurance policy if you WANNA continue on past a year because look a lot of kids. Don't eat well or don't eat enough and it's a it's really nice to know. They're getting all the nutrition that theoretically need from this. You know from this drink but My kids are all been knock wood pretty good eaters and are all really interested in food really early on like Geez. Not even six months and she's about to six months and she's already like trying to grab everything that's in front of her siblings plates and And they you know they're really eager and interested in in foods and my hope is I don't even actually like I know a lot of people. Once they finish formula they go on to some kind of either dairy milk or dairy milk alternative to put in their babies bottles into enter into sippy cups. Just to continue Sort of like the liquid nutrition as well and I. I really haven't even ever done that. I'll tell you I it's weird. How like different pieces of mother had advised stick with you? Someone very early on I think on his pregnant with Elena told me the one piece advised that she'd gotten was to take your babies off of bottles at a year Because it just like it will. It will make the more the more accustomed they get to needing a bottle to go to sleep. And there's all this like you know tons of dentists and pediatricians will tell you it's like bad for us to fall asleep with milk in their mouth and they they could choke or it's bad for their teeth almost all kinds of stuff but for Mir infections actions. But it's also just like you don't want your baby to form habits. That are then much more difficult and dramatic to have to break with them like getting a bottle before bed is if that's their habit after eighteen months twenty months twenty four months. They've got real memory they can remove. It's much harder to get them to the waiter. Would you please so I my babies are are pretty much done with bottles except for John who like how do transition them to transition it. Mind to the Nook the Sippy sippy cups and I just so Romeo this Adding a month ago just finished my ed. Breastmilk milk stored up I stopped breastfeeding him at a year. Because I was having a miscarriage and it just end up being too much body. But I had a ton of milk's stored up so he just finished drinking it but he was. I was doing that thing. Exactly what you're talking about where. I was giving him breast breast milk in a bottle of for a bed and he calls it. Legos itchy itchy and for the like for weeks I would give him a Sippy Cup with water and he's not literally looking at this. I started giving him eight on my kids Jerry. So I started feeding Giving him hemp milk which I like a lot and I just tons of research on what I think are good. Non Dairy milks But then I started realizing you know what I am doing that thing. I'm going to perpetuate the problem and so I'm GonNa go to water which all my kids have water bottle by their bed And he was just like what is this like. Where's my itchy? Where's my where's but no my? My kids are like me. They get thirsty in the night. So they all do have those Like little thermoses and water. But I just I again like. It's such a personal choice and I really do think that this was just one thing that someone told me that just has made my life easier as a mom to not have this one habit that I felt like would be traumatic to break with them so anyway it's worked but I but I honestly the the former conversations are really interesting one because it there is a lot of confusing information out there and when I did my deep dive what I came out with was that I thought that the holly brand ones were the were were on top for me and I and the kids have all responded really well to them and you know like this is maybe tmi but one of the ways that I gave that was like looking at how their diapers breast Mug poop looks very distinctive and the the change over to To formula looks exactly see so I feel like their digestive tract is processing at the same way. So that's what I use question. We had a woman Write to us at bow at baby biting. Who's ten months old And what to do about that? And sort of biting out of biting out of love And what I found but I think that we can look at it this as like a broader a broader theme of. How do you teach a young baby to be sweet and gentle now? I probably every child's that ever was had some sort of aggressive streak at some point because we are animals and that is just a something or play based as play based but then eventually throw something. And you're going to do something you're talking like I am. I angry in the moment. And I'm going to express that in the most violent way But what I found really well I. I've found works really well is Like for example. Romeo has has started. You know his whole hitting face earlier than my other ones because guess what he has gotten like pounded by his older siblings from time to time. Maybe it's out of love but he's just like I'm angry and I'm going to hit you because that has happened to me but what I find is the more that I'm like. No we don't do that. He's going to open his eyes wide. Look and then he's GonNa hit me again because we're hardwired to get attention exactly but if you go up to him and you say no Schwab Air Soft soft and you like you wrap his like little belly and his arms and then you have him do it as well little by little they start to go to that so basically like modeling good behavior preventing them from practicing the bad behavior as much as you can and don't be hard on yourself because they probably will do it because we all did it and everybody who came before us. I'll do it But the more that you can model sweet behavior the better And prevent them from not practicing the bad behavior. I find that that works pretty well as your kid gets older something. I've been doing With my kids is having them teach each other. I'll be a good teacher and teach them not to hit by using your words and I find that it does take a while but little by little you know the first time. They're going to raise their hand and they're gonNA hit their sibling the second time. They're not the second time but like after a while they're going to raise their hand and they're gonNa like sort of think about it has it. Then they're gonNa hit the their sibling and then little by little. They start to raise their hands. They think about it and then they dropped their hand and they're capable of using the words but the more that you can teach your child to use their words. They can use that as their tool rather than their body. The I love on an earlier. Pike as you talked about. How with Leo you you talk to him about teaching Romeo how to be nice teaching him how to be kind and then it actually was as much a learning lesson for for your three year. Old Is it was for your baby and you saw him really internalizing the lesson. Even more so as he was tasked with teaching it to his younger siblings has they like Little Kids. They love to have jobs and do and so it's like your free rein should teach them how to do this because he's a baby on Europe big boy and you get out. That's what I see with my kids do they. They definitely the more that they feel that. Distinction between big kids do acts and little kids have to learn how to do acts they definitely WanNa fall on the side of Bacon and then when they mess up just be
What Can Probiotics Really Do?
"If you've ever wondered how the world might end, then my new podcast is right up. Your alley. It's called the end of the world with Josh Clark. And it's about the very real ways that humans might accidentally wipe ourselves out in the next century or two might it. Be artificial intelligence or a haphazard physics experiment or perhaps in altered virus that escapes from a lamp who knows the one thing that sure is ignoring the risks won't make them go away. So come listen to the end of the world with Josh Clark. You can find it on apple podcasts the iheartradio app or wherever you find your podcasts. Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. Hey, brain stuff, Lauren Bogle bond here. What if you could take a pill that would treat depression, constipation, diarrhea eczema, urinary tract, infections and allergies while also preventing cavities and strengthening your overall, immunity, and what if it promised to shield you from the impurities of the world and reestablish a right and correct balance in your body's ecology. First of all everybody settled down. There is no such thing as a pill that does all of that. But to hear some people talk, probiotics might just come close the popularity of products containing friendly live microorganisms has exploded over the past decade at this point. You can walk into almost any grocery store and find probiotics in capsules lozenges. Gum facial toner, and yes, even in pet products. In addition to the more traditional delivery systems, like culture, dairy products yogurt and fermented products, like sauerkraut and Khumbu. Some folks are making a lot of money on these little bacterial helpers. But what are they actually able to do for us? And are they safe? We spoke with Dr Chris Irwin, a dietitian and lecturer in nutrition and dietetic at Griffith university in Queensland Australia. He said that unless you have an extremely poor diet or drink alcohol to excess. There's not a lot of evidence that a probiotic dietary supplement will help your overall health. He said if you're taking probiotics you'll likely. You need to take them every day, and it's best to feed the healthy bacteria with prebiotics. The bottom line is that healthy people are likely to get more benefit from getting regular exercise of waiting smoking or consuming too much alcohol and having a diet rich in foods that increase fiber and natural prebiotics intake like vegetables, fruits and whole grains, rather than consuming a probiotic supplement. However, probiotics might be an effective treatment for specific cases or conditions while there's not a lot of evidence. Supporting the idea that probiotics could help with your ex allergies or dental woes. Sorry, they might actually help people looking to avoid veteran east infections or upper respiratory infections picked up from a cold virus. Other. Studies have found that probiotics can help with digestive issues like irritable bowel syndrome, and may improve the frequency and consistency of your poop. So as a consumer what should you look for in a probiotic? If you want to get the most bang for your buck. Basically, you've got some homework to do. Irwin said a different probiotics. Strains have different effects. So it's important to look for a probiotic supplement that contains the strains of bacteria most likely to match your condition, the dose of bacteria called colony forming units or CFU is also important and should be high enough to meet benefits observed in clinical trials, the short answer here is if someone is looking for probiotic to take gopher something that provides the greatest diversity in bacterial, strains and the highest CFU. Irwin also suggests getting advice from your doctor or dietician for those strains that might be right for you. And making sure you're buying probiotic strains that are refutable and have committed to transparency in scientific research. However that ladder is more easily said than done. A study published in JAMA internal medicine in two thousand eighteen pointed out that there is very little government oversight of factories that manufactured probiotics and the US food and Drug administration or FDA found that about half of the six hundred and fifty factories that manufacture probiotic supplements in the United States were cited for violations most having to do with the product not living up to what was promised on the label. The study also said the probiotics may lead to infections in people with immune deficiencies. Another study published this year in the journal cell suggests some people may be resistant to supplemented probiotic bacteria, and therefore we'll get no benefit from it at all the researchers also investigated whether probiotics can help the gut microbiome bounce back after a round of antibiotics, and they found that though probiotics might have hell. With diarrhea related to the anti-biotics. They seem to have delayed the reconstitution of gut bacteria. Of course, more research is needed to understand just how helpful probiotics are to our overall health, and it's important not to give them more credit than their do. Irwin said. It's unlikely probiotic supplements are dangerous, but I don't think that they're a magic bullet L D people are likely to get more benefit from having a diet rich in vegetables, fruits and whole grains on the other hand if someone has a poor diet and doesn't exercise regularly their digestive bacteria may benefit from probiotic supplements. But they'll likely need to keep taking them to get lasting effects. States episode was written by just windshields and produced by Tyler playing for more on this and lots of other gutsy topics.
