Real Health Plus – DNA Testing: Your Guide to Optimal Health

Last year I received a very healthy Christmas present – DNA testing from Join Circles. The process was incredibly easy: I received a test kit from Join Circles with full instructions. In the comfort of my own home, I swabbed the inside of my cheek with a giant cotton bud and went online and booked a time for a courier to come and fetch my kit. A few weeks later I had my results and boy were they interesting! I have gene variations for oxidative-stress and inflammation (no surprise then that eczema and allergies were a problem from childhood), a traditional Mediterranean diet / low carb eating is ideal for me and high-intensity interval training is what I need to remain lean! Did I know all of this info before testing? To some extent but it was largely intuitive, now I had scientific data to validate my gut feeling!

In this episode we change it up a bit: Heidi & Margie interview me! They asked me what was my why, not just for testing but in general. Why do I want to be optimally well? They asked me about the process and what it meant to me and what I would do with the information. We discuss some of the information I found out and how it has equipped me to make better holistic decisions. It really was a lovely chat with health pioneers who get what it means to fight for good health!  

Enjoy!

Real Heath Plus – How Badly Do You REALLY Want That New Year’s Resolution?

Happy New Year!!

LOL I know it’s waaaaaaay past that! It’s already February! But it’s my first podcast of 2018 so it feels rather incomplete starting it without the wish.

As a first episode of the new year, I thought I’d tackle the New Year Resolution… perhaps too much of an obvious choice but here’s why: As we begin February, some of you will be on track with the goals that you set for the year, however, most of you would have started out with a bang but your thunder is barely a fizzle by now and you somehow sunk back into old – and bad – habits, leaving you feeling somewhat demoralized and despondent because change can often be so darn hard and habits only for with consistency! If this is you (or at least to some extent) then chin up champ, you still have 11 months to achieve what you set out to!!!

Life Coach, Roz Sandham, gives us some practical insights into setting New Year’s resolutions that can actually be realized and it starts with getting REAL!

 

Enjoy!
