    Today I’m chatting with Dr Dani Gordon. Canadian, British and American Board Qualified Medical doctor and author of ‘The CBD Bible’ and the forthcoming ‘The Resilience Blueprint’ . 
    She has treated thousands of patients with medical cannabis, trained some of the first UK cannabis physicians and now runs a UK based medical practice focused on Integrative & Cannabinoid Medicine. 
    Dani has been on the pod before when we did a hugely popular series on CBD, so definitely check that out if you haven’t listened already.
    Today we chat about:
    An overview of CBD and its chemical constituentsCBD and coffeeThe mood stabilising effect of CBD for mental healthWhat to look for in a CBD productUses of other classified drugs 
    But first, I also have a quick chat with Dr Michael Dixon, chairman of the college of medicine and his CV is about as long as the podcast! Having graduated in psychology and philosophy at Oxford University he studied medicine at Guy’s Hospital. Since 1984 he has been a general practitioner at College Surgery in Cullompton, Devon. In 2008, he and his partners created the “Culm Valley Integrated Centre for Health”, which is widely regarded as a prototype for general practice of the future.
    Since the early 1990s, he has been a leader of the GP/clinical commissioning movement with its aim of allowing frontline clinicians a far greater role in improving local services and health. Since 2007, he has been visiting professor to the University of Westminster (Integrated School of Health) and was also appointed visiting professor of University College, London in 2012. He is a regular writer and broadcaster, having written several books including “The Human Effect in Medicine” and is a former president of the Health Writers Guild.
    Michael and his team were pivotal in creating this conference that brought together a huge collection of varied professionals and frankly I’m counting the days till the next one.

    #157 Natural Menopause Remedies with Dr Anne Henderson

    #157 Natural Menopause Remedies with Dr Anne Henderson

    Today I’m chatting with Dr Anne Henderson, a highly experienced Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist who has spent 17 years as a senior consultant at a major acute NHS Trust, following undergraduate studies at Cambridge University
    Dr Anne is passionate about women’s health issues, particularly menopause and HRT, which is now a key health agenda. She has extensive experience in this area having undertaken postgraduate research into the menopause, HRT, PMS and post-natal depression.
    In addition, she is a British Menopause Society Accredited Specialist, a recognition currently held by fewer than 200 practitioners in the UK and Anne also believes in offering her patients the full spectrum of treatments which includes complementary therapies such as herbal medicine.
    She has worked closely with a medical herbalist in Kent for the last 20 years: this collaboration has been highly successful and forms an integral part of Anne’s clinical practice and educational seminars. She believes that the role of complementary therapies, particularly herbal medicine, is greatly under-recognised by most healthcare practitioners … which is why we’re talking about it today!
    For more information I highly recommend checking out Anne’s brilliant book Natural Menopause, full of illustrations, tips and practical advice from a trusted professional.

    Re-Release: Eating for Mental Health with Professor Felice Jacka

    Food and Mood is the topic of the podcast this week where we’re talking about ‘Eating for Mental Health’ with Professor Felice Jacka, Director of the Food & Mood Centre at Deakin University in Australia.
    Her book BRAIN CHANGER is all about how diet can save your mental health and tells the story of why we need to consider our food as the basis of our brain and mental health throughout our lives.
    Prof Jacka first came on my radar when I heard of the SMILES trials - which we’ll talk about a in the Podcast. She is also founder and president of the International Society for Nutritional Psychiatry Research (ISNPR) and pioneered a highly innovative program of research that examines how individual’s diets, and other lifestyle behaviours, interact with the risk for mental health problems.
    Today we talk about:
    Where mental health beginsJunk food and its impact on the adolescent brainStress and its impact on the immune systemThe SMILES trialsIncluding quality fats in your dietMaking sure that you're getting fibre into your dietFlavonoids, colours and getting more plants onto people's plates
    You’ll find the recipe video that I made with Professor Jacka, and our super interesting conversation - on my youtube channel go check it out online and there’s a link below too!

    Re-release (2020) Food as Medicine with Dr William Li

    You can download The Doctor’s Kitchen app here.
    Whilst we’re taking a short break from the pod we’re re-releasing one of my favourite episodes from 2020 with the truly inspirational  Dr William W. Li.
    I had the pleasure of finally meeting William a few weeks ago and if you don’t know him, Dr Li is. An internationally renowned physician, scientist, and author of the New York Times Bestseller ‘Eat to Beat Disease - The New Science of How Your Body Can Heal Itself’
    His groundbreaking work has led to the development of more than 30 new medical treatments, has impacted more than 50 million people worldwide, and covers more than 70 diseases including cancer, diabetes, blindness, heart disease, and obesity. His TED Talk, “Can We Eat to Starve Cancer?” has garnered more than 11 million views. Dr. Li has appeared on The Dr. Oz Show, CNN, and CNBC and has been featured in USA Today, TIME, The Atlantic, and O Magazine. Dr. Li is President and medical director of the Angiogenesis Foundation.
    We talk about a range of topics from his latest book including the 5 defence systems of the body: Your Microbes, stems cells, immune system , angiogenesis, your genes and how nutrition and lifestyle can positively influence them. As a food as medicine pioneer who started these conversations way before I even thought of The Doctor’s Kitchen, Dr Li has been a true inspiration of mine.
     
    On this episode we talk about
    The microbiota, how certain foods can improve your body’s ability to regulate sugarWhat stem cells are and the different types of foods that can help promote regenerationThe benefits of food for the immune system supportThe future of food prescriptions and how medicine could look in 10-15 years timeThe impact of food to positively impact the efficacy of medicine in the field of cancer, cardiology and neurology.

    #156 The Power of Food with Sheila Dillon

    #156 The Power of Food with Sheila Dillon

    Today I’m speaking to Sheila Dillon. A multi award winning food journalist, reporter, and presenter for BBC Radio 4’s “The Food Programme” where she has worked for over 20 years.  
    Sheila and her colleagues have truly changed the way in which we think about food in the UK and beyond. Her work has covered the breaking scandal of BSE, the rise of GM foods, the growth of the organic movement from muck and magic to a multi-million pound industry, the birth of the World Trade Organisation and irradiation at a time when those subjects were not even a gleam in a newshound´s eye.
    Sheila has a really special place in my heart as well. A few years ago I was invited to her house to cook a meal and share stories about my mission to help people eat better everyday. Sheila has really championed for nutrition in medicine and bravely shared her personal story of her own cancer and how she uses food to help support her treatment which has thus far prevented the need for a stem cell transplant.
    I think you’re really going to enjoy today’s stories of investigative journalism and why finding the courage to share your truth is so important.

    #155 Pleasure, Food, Interoception and Mental Health with Dr Rupy

    Download The Doctor’s Kitchen app here 
    Today’s episode is a part 2 to the episode where I discussed the studies used to create the Mental Health goal on the app. I specifically spoke about dietary patterns and nutrients related to supporting mental health as well as how we used this information to create recipes.
    On this episode I want to discuss our ability to listen to our internal organs through the cues and signals they send and look at food through a more integrative lens, giving consideration to the pleasure associated with eating and sharing meals. We also asked our lovely newsletter subscribers who get my “eat, read, listen” every week, to talk about their experiences looking after their mental health, the barriers they face and some practical tips to integrate this knowledge into everyday life.
    Today you’ll learn about:
    Interoception
    The beauty and pleasure of food
    The main take-aways from the nutrition research 
    Tips and hacks from the community about how to instil these values in your day to day
    If you enjoy this episode let us know and maybe we’ll do another one on a different topic!
