Ever felt overwhelmed by the amount of conflicting information when it comes to health and growth? Host Lauren Vaknine created the Reconditioned Podcast as a way to ensure that EVERYONE has easy and free access to information that will help them live healthier, happier and more fulfilled lives.

After being diagnosed with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis aged 2, Lauren was wheelchair-bound by 18. After more than a decade immersed in intensive self-study, learning everything there was to learn about the human body and mind, Lauren finally reconditioned herself back to wellness and is now a fully able-bodied business woman, podcast host and mum of 2.

She's now a health writer and leading coach in the fields of wellness, mindset and transformation, in a quest to help others achieve the same, supposedly impossible goals.

Lauren’s work looks at wellness not as a linear, new-age concept, but as the 4 modes of self – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual – integrated into one, enabling us to reach our full health and happiness potential.

Whether you are suffering from chronic illness, raising children in a world of conflicting information, you're an entrepreneur wanting to step into your purpose or you simply want to feel empowered and motivated to become the best version of yourself, tune in as Lauren and a host of expert guests uncover the most actionable ways to recondition ourselves back to wellness.

    Ep. 41 – THOMAS OLIVIER – Understanding Epigenetics; Your Genes ARE NOT Your Destiny

    Ep. 41 – THOMAS OLIVIER – Understanding Epigenetics; Your Genes ARE NOT Your Destiny

    I was SO excited today to sit down with Thomas Olivier, a nutrigenomic practitioner who was the first coach in the UK to offer fitness and nutrition plans based on individual DNA make-up, and CEO of Omnos.
     
    Omnos is an AI health optimisation platform that analyses one's genome combined with lifestyle and functional medicine tests to provide a scientifically validated dashboard of one’s health with personalised and actionable recommendations. This platform is revolutionary and life-changing, with the fool-proof, user-friendly interface allowing anyone at all, regardless of your knowledge about genes and functional medicine, to understand the results of your test based on the platform setup.
     
    The Omnos platform provides you with invaluable insights into particular areas of wellness, including nutrition, health, performance, mind and hormones. By analysing your genetic data they create a prioritised set of goals just for you so you can improve your health and catch any small issues before they become big ones and today, we spoke about exactly how that is possible.
     
    We covered MTHFR, BRCA and other well-known gene mutations, as well as learning how it is truly possible to avoid the associated illnesses with the right approach.
     
    Thomas has kindly offered listeners of Reconditioned a 10% discount off all tests by going to www.omnos.me and using code LAUREN10.

    Ep. 40 – SEED SISTAS Pt 2 – Kitchen Witchery with Herbalism

    Ep. 40 – SEED SISTAS Pt 2 – Kitchen Witchery with Herbalism

    In the second part of our series on herbalism, I speak with the other half of the Seed Sistas – Karen Lawton, all about kitchen witchery.
     
    I honestly LOVED every minute of recording this episode. Karen and I delved into the subjects of healing with food; how preventative healthcare should be the foremost mode of healthcare and how it begins in the kitchen; which herbs we can grow at home and how; about how to get started with foraging; about how food and herbs support immune and digestive function; and how our ancestors and our ancestral line play a vital role in what we eat, how we eat, and how our bodies respond to food.
     
    If you’re in any way interested in a holistic approach to living, eating and parenting, and have even a vague interest in herbalism, herbs and plants, this episode will offer so much value for you.

    Ep. 39 – SEED SISTAS Pt 1 – Sensory Herbalism

    I had the pleasure today of speaking with Fiona – one half of the Seed Sistas. The Seed Sistas are herbalists with a special love and interest in the so-called witching herbs of old, the poisons or power plants!
     
    Karen and Fiona run a social enterprise called Sensory Solutions Herbal Evolution to try and encourage people to further their knowledge on herbs by getting involved with planting and foraging. They combine their clinical experience with ritual, art and creativity to teach herbal medicine in a unique, inspiring and accessible style, led by the plants themselves.
     
    In this episode we speak all about how to use our senses to know which herbs are right and wrong for us, as well as learning about which herbs can help certain ailments, from anxiety and sleep to libido and happiness.
     
    Next week we’ll be speaking to Karen about Kitchen Witchery!
     
    You can find the Seed Sistas on their website https://www.sensorysolutions.co.uk/ where you can buy their book, take their courses and get involved in their incredible social enterprises.
