STNH 42: Tammy Guest – Living an Unrestricted Life
58:07Meet Tammy Guest – a very dear friend of mine. In fact, I have no idea why she hasn’t been on the podcast sooner! She is a naturopath, a business mentor, a trailblazer, a risk-taker, a rule-breaker and a leader in our industry. She is loved and respected by literally thousands of naturopaths and nutritionists, who look up to her for guidance, support and inspiration. And guess what – she’s also an author, and has written a brand new book called Unrestricted: A modern guide to doing business and life differently. It’s the essential handbook for driven entrepreneurs who want to make a real difference in the world, without sacrificing the things they value most. Yep, she doesn’t just help health practitioners, but also business owners, change-makers and driven humans of all kinds. We live in an era where there are so many opportunities to create a business out of our passions. Where we can create a career model that fits the life we want to live, rather than fitting our lives around our work. Where “burnout” will no longer be a badge of honour, and “busy” is not a term to strive for. Whether you’re in the health and wellness industry, or passionate about something else entirely, what Tammy has to share is so relevant for all. So let’s pick her beautiful brain about all things wellness industry, mindset and life. Want to connect with Tammy? Click here for her website. Click here for her Instagram.

STNH 41: Jo Whitton – Simple, Healing Food
59:55Meet Jo Whitton – an amazing wholefoods cook, an author and a recipe developer. But she’s also one of the nicest, most caring, most giving and generous people in the Australian wellness industry. She was also one of the very first guests on my podcast (episode 9 to be exact), back in 2016 when it was called Shiny Healthy You. Since then, we’ve shared the stage together at wellness events, shared air BnBs at events (where I’m pretty sure I kept her up till at least 2am), and shared organic ice-cream in Brunswick Heads. But most importantly we share a mutual love of serving our communities, and teaching people everywhere that foods that heal your gut can also taste amazing, without being complicated to make. In this episode, we chat about: Using healing foods to nourish and repair the gut. Meat stocks vs bone broths – what’s the difference? How to cook food to retain maximum nutrients like amino acids. Cooking healthy, nutrient-rich meals without budget blowouts, even as the cost of living increases. How to get flavour into your meals if you have to avoid nightshade foods, or if you’re doing an Autoimmune Paleo Diet. Organ meats, animal fats and other traditional foods, and why they’re having a comeback. Keen to connect with Jo? Click here to check out her new book, Simple Healing Food.

STNH 40: Vanessa Lamaro – Healthy periods over 35
52:57Meet naturopath Vanessa Lamaro. We went through college together in Melbourne, and not too long after that she moved to the Sunshine Coast. I eventually moved here too, which means that now we can have the occasional cheeky wine and chat about all things naturopathy. She niched herself in the fertility space, and has also expanded on that to cover women’s hormonal health of ALL ages… because reproductive health spans much further than just having babies – it often determines your quality of life waaaay past the age of 35, 40, 45 and onwards. Sometimes at this age we get forgotten about in the medical system, because – if you’ve got period troubles but you’re not planning to get pregnant, just go on the pill and carry on, right? Hmmmm… I think we can do better than that. In this show we will look at the underlying causes of period issues in women over 35, including the truth behind heavy bleeding, pain and cycle length going completely out of whack. So listen in as I pick Vanessa’s brain about how to have a healthy period and a healthy cycle, right into middle age… and what to do if things go wrong. Want to connect with Vanessa online?

STNH 39: Erin Lovell Verinder and Sarah Mann – Community Herbal Care
1:04:22It’s been several months since Lismore and surrounding areas of the Northern Rivers in NSW experienced flooding beyond what anyone ever thought was possible. While they went under and struggled to just stay alive and have basic needs met, so many of us watched on from afar, feeling utterly shocked and helpless. But out of every tragedy and disaster comes stories of determination, resilience, resolve and community. And this week’s guests have created something truly special that our whole naturopathic industry is talking about, and that is – to bring FREE natural healthcare to those affected when they needed it the most. There are two types of people in the world – those who say “someone should do something about that,” and others who say “I am that someone.” This dream team of Erin Lovell Verinder and Sarah Mann is the latter. As the floods were still raging, they were mobilising. First with a callout to naturopaths and herbalists to please send through whatever donations they could manage of herbs and supplements, then the big companies, then investors to make it happen on a larger scale. And Community Herbal Care was born. Tune into this episode to find out how they did it. We are stronger as an industry when we work together, and it fills me with joy to see our best and brightest praccies working together like this. So please enjoy this inspiring and heart-warming chat with Erin and Sarah. (Pic thanks to Amanda Callan aka @amanda.naturopathy). Community Herbal Care needs your help! The recovery in the Northern Rivers is still happening… and they will continue to need our help for months (maybe even years) to come. All donations, big and small, will be received with huge amounts of gratitude. Please visit their Go Fund Me page here. And you can also watch their progress on Instagram here.
