    Listener Question:
    I am trying to take better care of my skin and keep coming across phytic acid. I know from following Sarah that phytic acid can reduce absorption of good nutrients. Should I be concerned when I put it on my face?? - Julie

    Episode 490: Setting Priorities and Creating Habits During Stressful Times

    This week, Stacy and Dr. Sarah break down the science behind forming habits to help listeners focus on achievable goals that set them up for success!

    Listener Question:
    Hi Dr. Sarah and Stacy, I am sure you get this question all the time, and you may have already covered this, but I thought I would ask anyway. How do we make time for health these days? For those of us who are in the mist of figuring out this whole journey to health, these past two years feel like they have just been a huge derailment to any of the goals I wanted to achieve. 
    When you are looking down a long list (food choices, sleep, exercise, supplements, and selfcare) knowing that you need all these things to come together, where or how do you even start? And stick with them! Just thinking about it causes me stress and I know that stress has an impact on our health as well. How do you set priorities and keep habits? What gives us the most bang for our efforts? I would be so grateful for any tips or advice you have.
    Thanks to you both I know the ‘whys’ I just really need a simple ‘how’ to start with. Thank you! 
    - Carrie

    Episode 489: New Years Resolutions & Healthy Weight

    This week, Stacy and Dr. Sarah break down the science behind the diet dogma of healthy weight and what you can do to make better choices more easily.

    This week's listener question:
    Hello to Stacy and Dr. Sarah! Thank you for all the work you both do to help keep us all in the know! I really was touched by your recent shows on weight issues. I’m not 100% there yet but I have heard you! 
    I would love a show that is a ‘How-to’ on this topic. If our physical size is no longer a good marker, what should the goal be? How do we REALLY find a way to not care about our weight? I just feel very overwhelmed and confused after so many years of using my weight as my goal post, the one that keeps moving on me! 
    I love the whole idea of body positivity, but how do we even start that process? What are your priorities when focusing on your health and not your weight? I think I just need to know what this looks like day to day. - Beth

    Episode 488: Treating Eczema Inside-Out and Outside-In

    Episode 488: Treating Eczema Inside-Out and Outside-In

    This week, Stacy and Dr. Sarah break down the science on treating Eczema from the inside out. Then, they revisit an old show on Eczema in children with updated science and many product recommendations for listeners to try!
    Links to any products and articles discussed in the episode here!

    This week's listener Question:
    I had Eczema on body (arms, knees, groin, hands, belly) which started in my mid 30s and became most severe during my fourth pregnancy at age 37. Multiple treatments tried including acupuncture, naturopathic supplements did not achieve much improvement. 
    In late 2018, I did Whole 30 diet twice and saw marked improvement, and then transitioned to a paleo diet. All eczema cleared by 2020, with very small areas on hand remaining. Fall 2020, eczema on lips started. 
    I don't have eczema anywhere else now. I am now wondering if this perioral dermatitis is related to my previous eczema and how to treat it. Now that it is fall, the lips are beginning to worsen. Thank you! - Emily

    Listener Questions: 
    I am wondering if there is any information around booters with pregnant or breastfeeding Moms? - Sahiba

    Hi Dr. Sarah and Stacy,
    I love your show. I've been listening for about 2 years now and have listened to so many of your shows multiple times, plus many of your archives. And I love Patreon and the inside scoop over here. I'm sure you're really hoping not to do anymore COVID shows, and I totally appreciate that. However I trust your analysis of the science so much that I was really hoping to hear about the vaccine for kids: 
    What is the science saying so far? I'd like to hear the science, as well as your opinion as a mom regarding the benefits and safety please. I look forward to learning more and appreciate your show for the factual, scientific evidence it bring on on things health and nutrition related. Thanks for all the work you both do to bring this show to us each week, I'm a dedicated and avid fan and always look forward to each new release. 
    Sincerely,
    Jaclyn

Guide to life!

Updated: I want to just thank S and S for their careful and thorough approach to Covid 19. They presented the science accurately and without bias, and I’m grateful.

This podcast is amazing. I love Stacy and Sarah so much. They complement each other perfectly. I learn so much from every episode and I’m so grateful they do this. I have an autoimmune disease and I educate my doctor based on what they teach me here with real science references and unbiased information. I have listened to every episode twice!

Not very scientific

Sarah and Stacy present their topics as “only the facts” but it’s becoming more and more clear they are only following their own biases. Their latest podcast on the booster uses only Pfizer studies and data to support their claims. It’s beyond me why anyone claiming to be a scientist would only look at one source for their conclusions, especially when that source has a potential to be extremely skewed in its favor. Similarity with topics on metabolic health, they leave out clear data on blood sugar regulation and the benefits of building muscle. At the end of the day it’s clear they pick and choose studies to support their own opinions. So take this information with a grain of salt, don’t take it for gospel and do your research since their perspective is super misleading to call it “the facts”. Also, science isn’t facts. It’s hypotheses. And anyone claiming that topics like the virus or vaccine can be proved one way or the other with facts is clearly not being very thorough. There is a lot we don’t know yet. Additionally, having a study say something is one thing but seeing how it plays out in the real world is another. So just because “science” may say that carrots are the best for you for example, if someone doesn’t like carrots, that’s not going to be the best for them. You can’t make sweeping claims like that. Overall, be wary of this podcast!
