#21 Fatal Conveniences: Anti-Aging Skincare: The Youthfulness Scam
Play episode · 18 min
We are spoilt for choice when it comes to anti-aging skincare. Walk into any pharmacist, and you'll see shelves lined with promises. Fewer wrinkles, youthful, glowing skin are just some of the claims that these products make. But, when you dig a little deeper, the reality of these cosmetics isn't so pretty.
Welcome to Fatal Conveniences™ 
This is a bite-sized segment that parallels The Darin Olien Show. In these segments, we get into society's Fatal Conveniences™. I define these as the things we may be doing because the world we live in makes us believe we have to. These things save us time and trick us into thinking they're actually good for us. But it's those same things that are breaking down our health and the health of the environment around us.

I've spent most of my adult life obsessively researching these "conveniences." On every show, I pick one topic, and we dive into it. My goal is to make you more aware of these traps so you can push back on them. Remember, it starts…

Ordinary Vegan Podcast #88-Soup Enhancing Tips To Liven Up Your Vegan Soups
Several studies that have tested the effects of consuming soup on a regular basis found that routinely eating soup can reduce energy intake, enhance satiety, and promote weight loss. Vegan soups are especially satiating because high fiber vegetables are high volume foods. This is called energy density. Energy density is the number of calories in a particular weight of food. It means you can have satisfying portions of low-energy-dense foods with a relatively low-calorie content. Such high fiber foods like broccoli, squash, peas, cabbage, spinach and sweet potatoes are high volume foods. They add bulk to your meals and fill up your stomach without a lot of calories. They also keep you full longer. And vegan soups don't have to be boring. There are a lot of ways to liven them up, so today's podcast is dedicated to vegan soup enhancing tips along with: * Using aromatics to add depth and flavor * Why soup is only good as your broth * Using seeds to add flavor * Whole grains to elevate heartiness * Umami flavors * Crunch and brightness * Soup and immunity * Velvety Red Lentil Soup with Cherry Tomatoes & Shredded Coconut * Garlic Broth recipe (below) * Vegetable Cooking Chart Thank you for joining me today.

FHP S2: E39 - The Blame Game
Whether we succeed or we fail, ultimately? Well ultimately we are to blame. However, it isn’t easy to accept that we are at fault. It’s way easier to blame outside factors… We didn’t have enough time. The plan was flawed. Work or life obligations got in the way. But guess what? It’s still your fault no matter how “real” or valid the excuses are. And that should actually be a positive thing if we truly want to make a change. Because it then means that ultimately YOU are in CONTROL. When we blame outside forces, we give them the power. We give them power, because we don’t want to be at fault. It sucks admitting you failed. It’s hard to realize we sucked at something. Or didn’t stick to the plan. It’s suck to admit we have a weakness. But when you admit it’s your own flaw? You also gain control of your future. You then have the power to CHANGE your situation. That control, and the acceptance of your failures, is what ultimately leads to your success. Those that succeed honestly often don’t really have a better plan. They didn’t have perfect timing. Shit got in the way and they had countless setbacks. But they owned their failures. Blamed themselves and not things outside of their control. And they put in the work to make the changes. Stop blaming everything but yourself. Because ultimately YOU are in control. Ultimately only you can choose how to react to a situation. Only you can choose to move forward.

Episode 427: The Link Between IBS and Osteoporosis
The Whole View, Episode 427: The Link Between IBS and Osteoporosis Welcome back to episode 427 of the Whole View. (0:34) Stacy shares that she's the one who actually requested this topic. Stacy says she has many people in her life with gut-related issues. Yet she doesn't really know the difference between IBS, IBD, Crohn's, and Colitis. She's not sure how she's gotten to this point. But she does know she needs to take a step forward in her knowledge base. Stacy and Sarah talk about gut health on this show because of how important it is. And just like the universe, the knowledge on this is ever-expanding. Stacy believes that this topic is foundational to understanding gut health. Sarah shares she's been researching the gut microbiome for over six years. When she decided to write a book about it, she thought it would be the same amount of information as in her other books. However, she's found that it changed her perspective on literally everything she and Stacy talk about. Sarah thinks she's finally at a place in her research where she finally has a handle on the vast amount of research there is out there. Listener Question Regarding Osteoporosis Sarah dives in with a listener question. (5:05) "Sarah and Stacy- I am so inspired by your podcast. My husband and I have been listening for years. We binged them all initially, and now listen weekly while preparing dinners together. We have benefited greatly from your advice and recommended products. I have Sarah’s Paleo Approach and sleep books, we use our Joovv everyday, I switched us all to safer Beautycounter products from Stacy about two years ago. So thank you for making such a positive difference in our lives! My mother was just diagnosed with full blown osteoporosis, notably in her right femur bone. Her bone test four years ago was healthy. My question is whether her struggles with IBS and gut health might have played a role in her diagnosis, and what could she do now to improve it?" Stacy jokes about how much she loves nice, positive, complimentary questions. She suggests that before they get into answering the question directly, they look at the root cause. There is a reason that osteoporosis exists, and it's something they've discussed on previous shows, as well as nutrient deficiencies. This inevitably leads to IBS and other issues, and how that plays into nutrient deficiencies. Stacy suggests they back and talk a bit about those other gut-related issues first. Sarah agrees that explaining the issue is a lot like a spiderweb. It has many different threads coming out of the middle and linking many of the other conditions. What Are The Differences? Sarah goes back to Stacy's questions at the beginning of the show, regarding the differences between IBS, IBD, Crohn's, and ulcerative colitis. (7:53) IBD stands for Inflammatory Bowel Disease, while IBS stands for Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Crohn's and ulcerative colitis are included under IBD. What separates them is which part of the bowel is impacted by the autoimmune diseases. Celiac disease is not characterized as an IBD due to its link with gluten as a trigger but is an autoimmune disease that causes inflammation in the bowel. Sarah goes on to explain that IBS is a diagnosis of exclusion. It's the label given once all other bowel issues are tested for and ruled out. Sarah expresses how frustrating IBS can be because it's such a catch-all. You go in with an irritable gut, and when you test negative for all the things they can test for, they go, "congratulations, you have an irritable gut. Sarah shares her personal story of getting diagnosed with IBS-C. It can be classified as diarrhea-predominant (IBS-D), constipation-predominant (IBS-C), with alternating stool pattern (IBS-A). People can experience: * Abdominal pain, cramping, or discomfort * Gastrointestinal: change in bowel habits, constipation, diarrhea, inability to empty bowels, indigestion, nausea, passing excessive amounts of gas, or urgent need to defecate * Also common: anxiety, depression, discomfort, loss of appetite, or symptoms alleviated by defecation Stacy asks Sarah whether the depression she spoke of could be caused directly by gut health issues or as a side effect of the symptoms' discomfort. Sarah shares some of the research that emerged in recent years that points to possible causes. Possible Causes of IBS IBS might not be just one thing, but possibly a bunch of different things that all get a diagnosis of exclusion label. (16:40) Sarah goes on to explain that the research in the last 10 years has pointed to two main possible causes that are probably closely related. And are also a probable link to IBS and other health issues, including mental health. Food Intolerance Sarah says one of the most common factors causing IBS patients' symptoms is a food intolerance, with some studies reporting it in up to 89% of their patients. Patients with IBS understand that specific types of food trigger their symptoms: usually. These include legumes, vegetables, lactose-containing foods, fatty foods, stone fruits, and artificial sweeteners. This includes food allergies and is studied via blood tests and trial and error removal. Another way this is often studied and combated is by putting people on low FODMAP and gluten-free diets, which have shown greater even results. Stacy takes a moment to underline the fact that there are medications out there that don't even have the 70% improvement rate that these dietary changes do. Stacy wonders how many doctors are prescribing low FODMAP diets. Sarah shares that she doesn't have those numbers, but she can say no one talked diet with her through her IBS experience. Stacy shares when you struggle with these symptoms for so long, you don't really know what "normal" is. Often, doctors aren't given information and description that would prove helpful because nothing is out of the ordinary to the patient. Sarah explains that the issue here is that IBS is kind of a useless diagnosis because there are so many shades of it. 24:57 Sarah thinks that one of the things adding to this percentage of success is that many people who see improvement by going on a low FODMAP diet have never tried changing their diets before that point. She said that the reason so many people might be responding to a FODMAP diet is that they're eliminating wheat from their diets. FODMAP intolerance is most typically caused by gut dysbiosis, which co-occurs (chicken vs egg) with stress, poor digestion, leaky gut. Gut Dysbiosis This growing body of literature shows that with IBS, there is a loss of bacterial diversity, the establishment of problematic and opportunistic pathogens-like species in the gut, a lack of probiotic species, and many other things we know are associated with health conditions in general. (26:24) That kind of imbalance in the microbial community in the gut by itself can drive IBS symptoms but can also explain the reactions we see in dietary interventions. About 60% of the inputs that determine what bacteria are growing in our digestive tract is diet. And the other 40% is lifestyle, exposures (environmental toxins, supplements, drugs, hormones), stress, sleep, etc. Sarah explains that the gut microbiome's composition can shift dramatically in just a few days or weeks, depending on what the "starting microbiome" looks like. What happens in the gut microbiome when diet changes are made is it's finding a new equilibrium. This eventually reaches stability in about six months. Unknown vitamin deficiencies (such as Vitamin D), lifestyle factors, and heavy metal or pesticide exposure are also known to drive gut dysbiosis. Sarah explains that this means you might have a gut-bacterial-profile that produces a lot more gas when you consume gluten or a FODMAP-rich food. Sarah sums up that FODMAP intolerance is basically a measurement of gut dysbiosis. The Unrealized Impact Stacy shares how she's rece…
