18 Nov 2019

Today on the podcast we have something slightly different for you!

This is The Doctor’s Dinner Party that I recorded with Your Lifestyle Doctors.  

Your Lifestyle Doctors are five incredible doctors who are passionate about helping their patients and the public to live healthier lives. They have a broad and unique set of expertise between them and decided to use their knowledge collaboratively.

Their focus is on prevention and lifestyle factors to improve and optimise health and you are going to find so much more about them all during the course of this episode.

We have a candid conversation about many topics, including the role of a GP and how that’s changed over the years.  We also talk about how these doctors are implementing lifestyle approaches to some of their patient consultations and the results that they are achieving.

Do listen to and enjoy this episode - I think you will find it absolutely enlightening and super interesting!

I was absolutely honoured to have these doctors on the podcast and so proud of what they are looking to achieve and how they are moving forward.

I guess it was the very first time I had experienced what that vulnerability of being on the other side of the consultation table feels like.  I just wanted somebody to listen to what my anxieties were.  Everybody said - you are just anxious, you are just traumatised, heres an anti-depressant, this will fix it.  I had never really felt the need to listen to my intuition until that point.  There were lots of  different things that happened, that made me look - not just at my own life but really has informed the kind of doctor I am now
