    #74 Cannabis as Medicine (Part 1 of 2) - Cannabis on the Brain and Gut with Dr Dani Gordon

    #74 Cannabis as Medicine (Part 1 of 2) - Cannabis on the Brain and Gut with Dr Dani Gordon

    Seen any Cannabis products lately? We have, over the last few years, become completely inundated with cannabis products across the shelves of wellness and health stores. Online blogs claim miracle cures from everything you could think of. Sleep, anxiety, cancer, AI conditions, eczema, acne, libido. As a doctor I’m asked about this from patients a lot, but honestly I’ve had no formal training in the products and up until now I haven’t really looked at much research. So is this an incredible and legitimate supplement with a myriad of uses? Or is this modern day snake oil


    Well today, I’m speaking with Dr Dani Gordon. Dr Dani is a double board certified medical doctor, integrative medicine physician, Family medicine doctor and world leading expert in CBD, cannabis medicine. She also co-founded the non-profit, UK Medical Cannabis Clinicians's Society (MCCS), which trained the UK's first cannabis medicine specialists and helped set up the UK's first cannabis medicine centres.


    She has lectured at Imperial College, King’s College, and UCL on medical cannabis. She also developed the first medical cannabis training program for physicians in the UK and is a consultant for clinical research in cannabinoid medicine working with top researchers around the world. 


    Dr Dani Gordon is the perfect person to be speaking to on this subject and we have a fascinating conversation talking about:
    - Her first interaction with cannabis medicine and plant medicine
    - The historical use of cannabis as a plant medicine
    - The types of chemicals found in the cannabis plant
    - The endocannabinoid system and how cannabis may exert its affects
    - The risks of using Cannabis
    - The uses of cannabis in dementia, parkinsons, gut disorders 
    - Tips on how to use cannabis as a wellness product

    #73 The Cancer Series (3 of 3). My Cancer Journey with Dr Lauren Macdonald

    #73 The Cancer Series (3 of 3). My Cancer Journey with Dr Lauren Macdonald

    On this episode I’m joined by Dr Lauren Macdonald, who worked as a doctor in Brighton for several years before being diagnosed with aggressive stage 4 cancer in 2014. 


    The years that followed gave her a deep understanding of what it is to face a life-threatening illness. Consequently, she became fascinated by the emotional experience of illness, the mind-body connection, and the body’s ability to self-heal.


    To optimise her chance of survival she explored Integrative Medicine, specifically focusing on nutrition, the gut microbiome, and stress management techniques, alongside conventional medical treatment. She achieved complete remission in 2016 and has gone on to study vedic meditation, Nutritional and Environmental Medicine, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Ashtanga yoga.


    We talked about:
    - Her cancer journey, what is like to be a doctor with cancer and her experiences within the NHS system
    - Stress and inflammation in disease
    - How she was able to overcome trauma in her life
    - Gut health and its importance during therapy
    - Her experiences of yoga and learning more about surrendering herself to the universe
    - The power of nature as a healer
    - Her personal use of psychedelics and her thoughts on its potential use in medicine

    - Working with Possibility vs Probability - how to avoid False Hope and False Hopelessness and find a middle path of Realistic Hope.

    #71 The Cancer Series (1 of 3). What to eat for Cancer with Professor Robert Thomas

    #71 The Cancer Series (1 of 3). What to eat for Cancer with Professor Robert Thomas

    In today’s podcast we talk about everything to do with the “emperor of all maladies”, the big C. 


    Myself and Professor Robert have met on a couple of occasions at conferences geared toward healthy lifestyle and cancer, and I could not think of a more educated and enthusiastic person to have on the podcast who is up to date with the evidence and continues to wave the flag for lifestyle medicine and oncology.


    Professor Robert Thomas is a Consultant Oncologist at Bedford and Addenbrooke’s Hospitals, a clinical teacher at Cambridge University and visiting Professor of Sports and nutritional science at the University of Bedfordshire. He is lead of a Lifestyle and Cancer Research Unit conducting designing and conducting government backed studies evaluating the impact of exercise, diet and natural therapies. 


    More recently, he led the analysis of the 155,000 patient data set (PLCO) which has linked sugar with an increased cancer and tea and broccoli with cancer prevention. In 2019, he wrote the book “Keep Healthy after Cancer”, and remains medical advisor for the lifestyle and cancer website Cancernet.co.uk.


    We frame our conversation into 3 distinct areas to avoid confusion. What to eat to prevent cancer, during cancer and post cancer with the aim of reducing risk and improving outcomes. As cancer is an extremely broad field and confusing for even medical professionals to understand it’s biology, I want to remind listeners and viewers that this is general information and not to be taken as medical advice.
     
    In today’s pod we talk about
    - What Cancer is
    - The balance of genetic vs acquired cancer and the influence of lifestyle on risk
    - The general principles of how to avoid cancer
    - What foods to eat
    - How food exerts a positive impact on cancer risk
    - How we investigate the anti-cancer impact of food
    - Gut health and cancer
    - The Warburg effect
    - The implication of excess sugar on cancer risk
    - What to eat during cancer
    - The potential for ‘prehab’ initiatives
    - Vitamin D, Polyphenol and Probiotic supplements, Vitamin Supplements
    - Post Cancer lifestyle regimens to reduce the risk of recurrence
    - What an anti-cancer diet looks like
    - The Future of Oncology: Individualised medicine, Immunotherapy and Metabolic Oncology
