    The Power of the OS-01 Peptide: Reverse Aging, Reduce Inflammation & Get Glowing Skin with OneSkin’s Carolina Oliveira

    Meet the new face of age-reversal skincare. I’m thrilled to welcome Carolina Oliveira, the CEO and co-founder of OneSkin. Carolina and her team are disrupting the outdated anti-aging skincare industry with their groundbreaking research on our largest organ and its longevity.
    I’ve seen the results firsthand. You know that I’m a skeptic when it comes to commercial skincare products. But after digging into OneSkin’s research, I started using their products about a year ago. I’ve been so impressed – my skin looks more youthful, softer, and has a new glow!
    On today’s episode, we get into the science behind their topical skin products. We talk about what causes aging and if it’s reversible. Carolina explains what peptides are and how they work, sharing her revolutionary research into the OS-O1 peptide. This peptide has been shown to improve barrier function, increase collagen biosynthesis, and reduce “zombie cells” which are a central cause of aging.
    Plus, Carolina answers questions about retinol, exfoliation, and how to simplify your skincare routine. Don’t miss this insightful and educational look into the latest research on skin health.

    Raising “Healthy Strivers” in Today’s Toxic Achievement Culture with Jennifer Wallace #WellnessWednesdays

    Raising “Healthy Strivers” in Today’s Toxic Achievement Culture with Jennifer Wallace #WellnessWednesdays

    Today’s topic is something every parent can learn from – how to raise our kids to value themselves for who they are, not what they accomplish. I’m thrilled to welcome Jennifer Wallace, an award-winning journalist and social commentator who covers parenting and lifestyle trends.
    Jennifer is a contributor to The Wall Street Journal and The Washington Post. She is the author of Never Enough: When Achievement Pressure Becomes Toxic — And What We Can Do About It. This is the definitive book on toxic achievement culture and the impact it has on parents and kids.
    Jennifer tells us all about the groundbreaking findings she uncovered in her book, explaining the societal and economic factors that contributed to the rise of achievement culture. We talk about the prevalence of anxiety and depression in children who go to high-achieving schools. And most importantly, we explore how to combat this phenomenon and support our kids.
    Jennifer shares fantastic advice on how to teach your kids about their unconditional worth, help them process envy and comparison, and foster a healthy sense of self. We chat a lot about mattering, and why it, well, matters so much, highlighting the importance of healthy interdependence.
    School might be in session for them, but it is for you (and me!) too. Jennifer recommends getting a PhD in our kids; I will definitely be implementing her advice in my home. The LeVeque family meetings start now! I’m so excited to share Jennifer’s research and perspective, so you can learn from her too.

    Mindset as Medicine: Change Your Mind to Change Your Life with Dr. Josh Axe #WellnessWednesdays

    Mindset as Medicine: Change Your Mind to Change Your Life with Dr. Josh Axe #WellnessWednesdays

    I am so excited to welcome Dr. Josh Axe, leadership expert, entrepreneur, physician, husband, father, co-founder and CVO of Ancient Nutrition, back to the show. He’s here for an open and honest conversation about his latest study and passion: Mindset as medicine. 
    He's also a bestselling author, and his latest book is due out this April. We outline the research and personal anecdotal content baked into Think This, Not That, the title, among many, which Dr. Josh is most proud of and most excited to see in the hands of people around the world.
    We hear about how Josh spent ten months in bed suffering from a debilitating spine condition, the practices – mental and physical – which set him free from that reality, how he and Kelly approach parenting in the modern world, identity dynamics, masculinity vs. femininity, and so much more.
    But the key question in play is… Who could you become?
    As we learn today, the answer is limited only by your own imagination, but it can be amplified through community, self-development, and spirituality. It’s an important lesson for all of us to remember as a means to continue one’s growth as a person – and even more important as parents, as we seek to challenge our little ones to be the best versions of themselves they can be.
    We also cover:
    (00:02:05) Dr. Axe’s Pain-to-Purpose Inspiration Story 
    (00:09:02) Believing You Can Get Better: Perception vs. Placebo

DHN34 ,

Such important info!! I learn so much!

I notice myself constantly finding new podcasts to follow but as of lately, I’ve been consistently listening to this one!! Week after week this podcast holds important information you don’t want to miss regarding health, most especially the recent Alzheimer’s podcast episode.. indisputably its the most imperative information I’ve listened to thus far. Thanks for finding such great experts!!

Fly Fishing Girl ,

I’ve been following Kelly for a few years!

I use her protein powder every day! And also get tons of advice on living a healthier lifestyle! Love her!

Aaron_Shaffer ,

My favorite wellness podcast!

I’m often intimidated by wellness conversations, by Kelly does an amazing job of steering the ship away from scary, overwhelming topics and focusing on practical things we can do to improve our lives today. I’m very interested in longevity and biological age reversal, so I especially loved her episode with Dr. Mark Hyman. I would recommend this show to anyone who wants to live a healthier, happier life but is unsure where to begin.
