    Liz Earle MBE, is an absolute phenomena. She has 35 books to her name, multiple TV shows, a global beauty brand, a magazine and a hugely engaged and connected community online.

I want to share her story, her strategies for maintaining personal wellbeing, creating a support system around her as well as what excites her about the landscape right now. 


    This is quite a personal podcast from both sides and we share a number of anecdotes which I hope will help you the listener understand the journey of an entrepreneur a bit better.

    #81 Wellness for Entrepreneurs (Part 2 of 3) Coping with Startup Stress with Zanna van Dijk and Natalie Glaze

    #81 Wellness for Entrepreneurs (Part 2 of 3) Coping with Startup Stress with Zanna van Dijk and Natalie Glaze

    Entrepreneurship has a real glamour to it these days. With images of global startups such as Tesla, Lyft, Gymshark, Monzo and more. But what is startup life really like? And is it as desirable as people make it out to be?


    I’m thrilled to welcome along good friends of mine to the show - Zanna van Dijk and Natalie Glaze. These entrepreneurial, passionate ocean lovers wanted to create a business which was a force for good. A business that aligns with their morals and actually serves the planet.


    To fulfil this desire they co-founded Stay Wild Swim in 2018, an ethical and sustainable swimwear brand made from regenerated ocean plastic in the heart of London. Since the launch it has quickly become a leader in the sustainable fashion industry with a radically transparent supply chain, showing that you can consciously produce clothing without compromising style and quality. I personally know just how much effort goes into sourcing the raw materials, the fulfillment process and the seasonless slow fashion approach.


    Featured in Vogue, showcased at London Fashion Week, stocked in Selfridges and approved by Anna Wintour - Stay Wild Swim has seen huge success in a short period of time and is set to continue shaking up the fashion world.


    But what are the costs of startup? Beyond the glamour and the success what is the day to day like? The stresses, the sacrifice and how do these young business women stay grounded? What is their secret?
    On the show today we talk about:


    - How Zanna and Natalie connected and grew the concept of what became Stay Wild
    - Their rapid journey to success, features across both luxury magazines and the biggest social media account
    - What stresses they have encountered on their short journey
    - What coping mechanisms they have learnt along the way
    - Zannas personal illness that led to her understanding the value of stopping and taking time for herself
    - What advice Natalie and Zanna have for listeners to cope with anxiety and stress, regardless of whether they are starting something up as a business

    BONUS EPISODE: Squats, Purpose and Plants. Your Healthy Ageing Prescription with Dr Kate Gregorevic

    BONUS EPISODE: Squats, Purpose and Plants. Your Healthy Ageing Prescription with Dr Kate Gregorevic

    “One of the greatest gifts of being a doctor for older adults is the constant reminder that life is fragile, finite and precious.”


    On the show today is Dr Kate Gregorevic - a geriatrician and internal medicine physician. She works in both acute hospital medicine and community settings and has completed a PhD looking at the impact of positive psychosocial factors in the development of frailty in older adults


    Lifestyle medicine is a core feature of Kate’s clinical practice, and nutrition, exercise and sleep are integral to developing plans to optimise her patients’ health. Her approach goes beyond physical, by working with people to identify their own priorities and values, and always centring these in any management plans.


    On the show today we talk about:
    - How we balance the need to change health behaviours to improve longevity with the need to enjoy today
    - Why we should focus on creating health in the present, as something that is valuable in its' own right and helps us engage in life, rather than something for the future
    - The importance of including social and emotional wellbeing in any definition of health
    - The perspective of a Geriatrician
    - Assessing someone’s readiness to change and tips to motivate them
    - Sarcopenia and how to prevent this
    - Your prescription for healthy ageing (Squats, Purpose and Plants)
    - The impact of loneliness and how it activates a stressor response
     
    Please do check out Dr Kate's book - Staying Alive - it's a really great read and has some fascinating information

    #79 The Keto Series (Part 2 of 2), How Keto Saved My Child with Alex Ash

    #79 The Keto Series (Part 2 of 2), How Keto Saved My Child with Alex Ash

     A slightly different podcast episode today to give an authentic human experience of what effect a ketogenic diet could have in certain circumstances - we’re talking with Alex Ash, a colleague of one of my best friends in America, who reached out to me a while ago wanting to share his personal experience with the use of a Ketogenic diet for his son’s medical condition.


    Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS) is a severe form of childhood epilepsy with multiple types of seizures and as you’ll hear, Alex and his partners experience has not been a straight forward one in the slightest.


    For any of you listening with children, with or without a chronic condition, I just want to say from the outset that this episode could be triggering so I would exercise some caution if you do not want to listen. 


    Alex’s story has a positive ending but I understand this is not the case for a lot of people struggling with epilepsy and many other conditions. As a medical doctor I witness the daily battle many parents and carers have to endure for the sake of their loved ones.


    As always, none of the information spoken about on today’s podcast is taken to be medical advice, always speak with your practitioner about changes to medication, dietary or supplement regimen. 


    And there are a few explanations for how the keto diet may yield an effect offered by Alex that are not technically accurate, but for the purposes of this special podcast I’ve chosen to completely unedit our conversation. If you’re interested in the more nuanced opinion of a practitioner I would listen to the previous podcast with Sue Wood that I've linked here for you.


    I hope you enjoy listening to Alex tell Jachin’s story, it’s certainly hit home a lot of truths to me.

    BONUS EPISODE: Bread and Bliss with Roly Allen

    BONUS EPISODE: Bread and Bliss with Roly Allen

    Have you noticed the sourdough trend sweep through the globe during lockdown? 


    People have developed a new love of home cooking and slowed down sourdough is top of the menu. But Roly Allen’s story started before the pandemic. 


    After an exhausting couple of decades spent working, commuting, travelling and raising two children, Roly Allen baked his first sourdough loaf in his mid 40s because he’d been made redundant and needed a healthy pursuit while he got back on his feet. 


    On the pod today Roly talks me through the process of baking and how sourdough saved his life.  


    We chat about many things on the pod today but I highly encourage you to try a sourdough bake yourself. If not for the health of your body, then for the mindfulness benefits that bread baking can have.
    And do check out Roly's book - 'How to Raise A Loaf' - it's super interesting and full of great advice and hints and tips for baking bread


    And do check out The Doctor's Kitchen website where Roly has shared a 'Working Day Sourdough' recipe and we have all other show notes and social media links
