Awesome source of information!

This is one of my most favorite podcasts. I really like how someone outside the medical profession is given health tips that is easy to understand, and I appreciate how Dr. Hazel and the guests care about the wellbeing of people. They still suggest that you see your own GP while still also providing a wealth of health information. I cannot wait til the next season comes out!

I can’t get enough!

I am passionate about maintaining and living a healthy lifestyle and it’s nice to listen to a podcast whose host and guests are equally as passionate. Hazel is engaging and has a voice that carries so well in this medium. There are no gimmicks or up selling, only well-researched topics and factual information presented in easy to understand snippets. I’ve listened to every episode in the past month and can’t get enough! Keep doing great work Dr. Wallace! Best, Listener from the States
