How to have a healthy relationship with social media
At its core, social media is a powerful communication tool that has changed how individuals interact with one another. It speeds up how people exchange and share information, thoughts, and ideas across virtual networks. However, social media does have downsides. I speak to Niomi Smart, content creator and the founder of Smart Skin, with a global following of more than 4.6 million. We explore if it is possible to form a healthy relationship with social media and why this has been fundamental for Niomi.
Dirt Poor - has our food become less nutritious?
Only a few decades ago, little was known about the presence and importance of trace elements. Today we have a number of environmental challenges that were not there just a few generations ago. The quality of every essential component that enables us to function at an optimum level has been compromised: the sunlight, the air, our water and our food. In this episode, David shares his expert knowledge on our food quality today.
Meditation instead of Medication
Meditation is a word we hear a lot today to help calm our minds and deal with daily stressors, but many of us still struggle to grasp it. How powerful is meditation and how can we take the first step?
To kick off the first episode of series six, I invited Be Well Collective's meditation expert Cornelius O'Shaughnessy, to take us through his personal journey and a guided meditation.
How to personalise your nutrition
We are all unique and that could be the route cause to why general healthy eating recommendations do not work for us all. Research has been emerging for a while to support how our unique genetic makeup dictates how you breakdown and process foods, which in turn affect our overall health.
Dr Cother Hajat is a public health doctor whose career has focused on promoting health lifestyles and nutrition and works in the future of personalised nutrition.
When clean eating goes to far
Orthorexia is based on behaviours that are ‘unhealthy’ or ‘obsessive’ around food. Understandably, orthorexia can be difficult too diagnose as we see a rise in the pursuit of healthy eating. In today's episode I speak to Dr Rachel Evans, a chartered psychologist and has herself suffered from orthorexia and bulimia. Rachel speaks from her personal experience of her eating disorder and may be triggering for some people.
Can you balance your hormones through food?
Hormonal balance is a big topic of conversation for many women. However, what does it really mean? In this episode, I speak to Dr Harriet Holme who is a registered nutritionist and has a passion surrounding women’s health. We explore whether you can really balance your hormones through food and how to support hormonal imbalance if you suffer with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS).
The Gift of “The Be Well” Podcast
I have immensely enjoyed listening to the “Be Well Collective” podcast! It is so refreshing to hear a science based conversation surrounding nutrition and mental health. Thank you for starting this collective to help educate young women, like myself, on the importance of health as it pertains to so much more than one’s physical appearance. Now, more than ever, people are interested in nutrition for the long term benefits and for mental health purposes. I have two questions for you that I would love to hear addressed in your upcoming podcasts. 1.) What are your thoughts on “eating for your blood type?” And what does research show about this? It seemed as though Dr. Aseem was going to touch on this, but I think time was of the essence. 2.) Can you expand more on how nutrition affects the chemical processes in the brain to support mental health? In your interview with Kimberly Wilson, you beautifully highlighted how the brain is an organ which is responsible for all of the chemical processes in your body. This basic truth has been a monumental turning point for me in the way I view nutrition because in order for our brain to function properly we must nourish it with the right foods. Can you expand more on the chemical processes in the brain as it relates to nutrition and how nutrition aids in neurotransmitters, serotonin transfers, etc? As someone you manages my own mental heath issues I think it is so important to combat it from all angles, especially nutrition. Thank you so much for creating such a lovely podcast that is incredibly relevant in these times. Sincerely, Lily (Dallas, TX)
