    You'll hear Murray explain how Give Back Health started, and the charities supported by Give Back Health, and given his vast experience, Murray shares with us his thoughts on the relationship that Australians have developed with the Natural Health Industry.  Dane discusses how to prescribe and dispense Give Back Health Products and how the products have been designed to synergistically work together.  Vicky then explores what it means to be 'practitioner only', and what the near future has in store from this innovative brand.  Sit back, relax and listen to the story behind Give Back Health.

    Embracing The Gift Of High Sensitivity with Mark Wells

    Embracing The Gift Of High Sensitivity with Mark Wells

    This month on The Health Chat, Vicky talks with Educator, Author, Naturopath and Counsellor,  Mark Wells about his new book, Embracing the Gift of High Sensitivity. 
    Mark discusses his book that is designed for highly sensitive persons (HSPs) and for those who wish to know more about this human trait.   Vicky asks Mark questions pertinent to non-HSP's, things like, how to identify an HSP, how to parent a highly sensitive child, warning signs to look for in a child and how different cultures around the world embrace HSPs.   HSP's compromise about a fifth of the human population, with equal gender representation, and many of them seek Traditional Medicine to help with their health.  This podcast and video is a must for practitioners and non-practitioners as it explores the great wonders of the HSPs and how to treat them effectively.  
    Mark believes in assisting HSPs (adults and children) to live healthy and productive lives, while respecting and embracing their feelings and perceptions in everyday life.
