Today's episode is devoted to naturopathy... But don't go activating your almonds or boiling your bone broth just yet, because today we are only dealing with EVIDENCE-BASED naturopathy backed by real scientific research. And who better to cut through the naturopathy BS than today's expert guest, Herb Nerd, Reece Carter. Reece is a university qualified nutritionist and naturopath who has a thing for science and evidence, and has an aversion to all things activated and alkalising! Reece's attitude to nutrition and naturopathy is BS free. He has a refreshing honest and evidenced based approach to cut through the noise and help his clients make sustainable and healthy changes long term. Reece is the author of two books, The Garden Apothecary and The Happy Gut. Reece also has an active audience of over 50,000 people across Instagram and Facebook, you can follow his Instagram account at @herbnerdreece. In this episode Reece and I start by discussing the difference between nutritionists and naturopaths and what it means to be an evidenced-based practitioner. We then move into talking about gut health and why it’s so important. We chat about Reece’s nutrition recommendations for gut health and his herbal recommendations. We discuss bloating, sleep and stress relief and some herbs that may assist. We chat about eczema and helpful lotions that may be found in our medicine cabinets. Finally, we finish off by discussing herb gardens, teas and general healthy eating.Please subscribe and leave me a review If you enjoyed this podcast, please tag me and share it in your Instagram stories and leave me a positive rating or review in the purple Apple Podcast app (in the rating & reviews section underneath the episode lists).
