Deeply substantial and amazingly practical

It’s obvious JJ puts extraordinary effort in covering salient topics and finding guests that are authentic and truly care about being a positive force in this world - the insights she brings to bear is still mind-blowing Every. Single. Time.

No matter the subject, you’re guaranteed to gain something from every episode - can’t recommend Ask the Health Expert enough 🙌

Disgraceful

Dr. Joseph Mercola has been identified as the top disseminator of misinformation concerning COVID vaccinations by the CCDH. Yet Virgin describes Mercola as an “amazing “ health expert in her July 24th podcast. We probably don’t know how many people have died needlessly following Mercola’s anti-Vax advice, but any podcast, and podcaster, promoting such a provider deserve no consideration or respect. It is incomprehensible why Virgin allowed such a disgraceful healthcare provider like Mercola to be on this show. I will be canceling my subscription immediately.

Great , useful info to ponder but

The balance between self promotion, content, sincerity, intent, brilliance, humility and wisdom is concerning.
Remember that what we tout as knowledge, even backed by erudite research, will morph and grow so that the idea of certainty is relevant and reforming. I prefer to view most every conclusion, every remedy, prefaced with the wisdom of this knowledge.
It would be affirming to hear all these proclaimed experts, and even all medical practitioners, speak and promote this truth along with the jewels and advice.
We learn more and shift our thinking.

I applaud your willingness to share your life’s work and what you’ve come to understand at this juncture in time.
And I get the necessity of advertising, but when listening to many shows in a row it becomes tiresome and less effective,, perhaps even negative. I call it disadvertusing and defeating the intent.
Thank you!!!
