    Brace yourselves, winter is coming!

    Brace yourselves, winter is coming!

    Autumn and winter bugs are more common than the deaths of fictional characters played by Sean Bean.
    Not to worry though, we've got Rosy of http://www.meadowsweetorganics.co.uk/ (Meadowsweet Organics) back on the show. As well as being an organic farmer, she's also a practising herbalist.
    On this episode, we'll be talking about the methods, foods, and supplements you can use to fortify your immune system heading into the cold period.
    Of course, life does happen, so we'll also look at some of the more curative treatments for cases where you do end up under the weather.
    And, on top of that, Rosy also offers some tips on winter mental health!

    Is eating a nutritious diet enough for your overall health?

    Is eating a nutritious diet enough for your overall health?

    On this episode we're joined once again by Nutritional Therapist Carrie Temple of http://www.always-strive-to.com/ (Strive).
    We've heard a lot about the importance of a healthy and nutritious diet in this series so far. But in what instances should people seek advice on supplementation to make sure they're getting all of the nutrients their body needs?
    Also, we talk about exercise. Is it really necessary to spend an hour in the gym if you feel like you're torturing yourself? Are there other options available for staying active?
    And on the same note, do you need to suffer eating bad tasting food in order to be healthier?
    A huge thanks to Carrie for taking the time to answer all of these questions. Here's where you can connect with her.

    Why does insulin and blood sugar matter? And should you stop eating gluten?

    Why does insulin and blood sugar matter? And should you stop eating gluten?

    On this episode we're joined once again by Nutritional Therapist Carrie Temple of http://www.always-strive-to.com/ (Strive).
    We're continuing our conversation about the concept of food not simply being food, but detailed information for every cell in your body. Information that can be good or bad.
    This time around, we're going to learn about why insulin and blood sugar matter, even if you don't suffer from any form of diabetes.
    We'll also talk about medication. Most folks take pills of some sort on an ongoing basis to help alleviate symptoms of chronic, non life threatening conditions. But is it possible to approach these problems from a different angle, and look at prevention, rather than cure?
    And finally, what's the deal with gluten? Should you eliminate it from your diet? Or is the gluten-free trend simply a fad that's been capitalised on by big processed food companies?

    Counting calories and eating fats. Nutrition and diet

    Counting calories and eating fats. Nutrition and diet

    The food you eat is what your body uses to build, regenerate, and repair itself.
    And that's one of the reasons why the quality of your food is much more important than things like the number of calories it contains.
    On this episode we're joined by Nutritional Therapist Carrie Temple of http://www.always-strive-to.com/ (Strive).
    We'll find out why calorie restrictive diets might be doing you more harm than good, why eating fat doesn't necessarily make you fat, and whether or not you can out-exercise bad eating habits.
    On top of that, Carrie also offers some tips on how to begin making positive changes to your diet!
