    S2E11 The Toxic Language of "Wellness Culture"

    S2E11 The Toxic Language of "Wellness Culture"

    In the penultimate episode of Season 2, I speak to Maxine Ali, a health writer, linguist and body image PhD researcher and she uses her platform to dissect the language of health and wellness, looking into its toxic and sexist sub-messaging. After falling hard into the clean eating culture whilst being a health journalist for a well-known women’s health magazine, Maxine left the industry in 2017 to refocus her writing and research.
    Maxine and I discuss:


    Gender disparities and the lack of visual representation of diverse body types in wellness culture - how this exacerbates insecurities and reinforces patriarchal ideals of beauty and femininity.
    How the ‘self-improvement’ culture leads from the notion that the fault is always with the individual, never the institution or systems that uphold it 
    The ugly side to body positivity and toxic positivity in health communication.
    How wellness culture reframes restriction and how to recognise when diet culture is silently co-opting the non-diet language

    S2E10 Why You Need to Know About the Menopausal Transition

    S2E10 Why You Need to Know About the Menopausal Transition

    In this episode, I had the pleasure of speaking to Dr Jenn Salib Huber, dietitian, naturopathic doctor and intuitive eating coach. Jenn provides expert health and hormone support to women in midlife without a side of diet culture!

    Every woman is going to go through menopause at some point in their life, often though it is coupled with trouble sleeping, multitasking, thinking straight and generally coping with everyday life. This can be very stressful and cause depressive symptoms for many women, along with losing zest for life, and many women resort to using antidepressants. So it’s about time we spoke about it!

    Jenn and I discussed:


    Barriers to discussing the menopause
    What actually is menopause and peri-menopause?
    Symptoms
    Early menopause
    The hormones involved
    Eating well for the menopause
    Alternative therapies to dealing with severe symptoms

    PLEASE be sure to give this a review, rating, and share it with someone you think would enjoy it!

    S2E7 Skin Health

    S2E7 Skin Health

    This week's Nutritalk sees me speaking to Registered Nutritional Therapist, Louise Goulding, who specialises in skin health.

    The skin has been a hot topic as of recent, especially off the back of the pandemic with just our faces constantly on zoom calls. Our skin is often a reflection of our internal health.  Poor digestion, hormonal imbalances, stress and toxin exposure can all affect it.  But our different diets, lifestyles, environment and genetics mean that we can’t take a ‘one size fits all’ approach to tackling skin conditions. One thing that we do know is a diet that is good for your general health is a diet that is good for your skin! 

    Louise discusses with us today simple and sustainable changes you can make to your diet and lifestyle today, including loading up on antioxidants, feeding those gut bugs and loving your omegas!

    We also discuss: 


    Why Louise specialises in skin health
    How to get that healthy ‘glow’
    Nutrients for the skin
    Skin as an indicator of health status
    Ageing skin
    Chemical and mineral sunscreens
    Skin routines
    The biggest lifestyle factors that influence skin health

    S2E6 Weights & Wine - can you do both?

    S2E6 Weights & Wine - can you do both?

    With a long-standing family history involved in selling wine, Elliot Awin now too works in the wine trading industry, running a wine importing business with his father @abswine, and is one of four founding members of the successful sell-out organic wine from Provence @qvvines 

    Elliot was also a keen rugby player, but almost 7 years ago now, everything changed. He woke up in the middle of the night with his heart rate racing ~220 beats a minute. After being told to go straight to A&E by the GP, and after seeing many different cardiologists, he was later diagnosed with Supraventricular tachycardia (SVT), Atrial fibrillation (AF), and Wolff-Parkinson-White-Syndrome, a heart condition that causes the heart to beat abnormally fast for periods of time.

    Elliot was recently fitted with a Pacemaker in 2020 and subsequently had to stop playing rugby, but this has not stopped Elliot from partaking in competitive sport, as he is now training to row across the Atlantic, alone….

    In this episode, we discuss:


    Why wine?
    Passion for rugby and competitive sport
    When everything changed with a heart condition diagnosis
    Elliot’s current exercise regime and finding a new love for CrossFit
    Discipline + training for the world’s toughest rowing race across the Atlantic Ocean in 2023
    Finding the balance through ‘conscious consumption'

    Confused as to what wine to pick up off the shelf in a supermarket, or what to take to your next dinner party? Elliot hosts weekly social wine tasting or more structured private sessions to demystify wine in any way he can, Find full details here: https://elliot.wine/bookings

    Hope you enjoy!!
