The truth behind CBD, does it work?
56:58It is estimated that two billion euro’s a year is the size of the European market of CBD. Already, the plant extract is being added to cheeseburgers, toothpicks and breath sprays. The World Health Organisation reports “In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential….To date, there is no evidence of public health problems associated the use of pure CBD”. Part of CBD’s popularity is that it purports to be “nonpsychoactive,” and that consumers can reap health benefits from the plant without the high (or the midnight pizza munchies). In today's episode we explore the facts and science surrounding the trendy CBD market. Dr Julie Moltke is a peer-reviewed clinical researcher and industry consultant with a focus on medicinal cannabis and holistic health. Dr Julie Moltke prescribes medicinal cannabis at Horsted Institute in Denmark and works in child psychiatry in Sweden. She is on the advisory board of The Conservative Drug Policy Reform Group, The Primary Care Cannabis Network, and the patient organisation CPASS, among others.

Building resilience to achieve your dreams
52:47There are a number of dimensions when it comes to positive mental health, one of which is resilience. Resilience is the process of being able to adapt well and bounce back quickly in times of stress.

In this weeks episode I speak to Adelle Tracey, European finalist and world semi-finalist track athlete. Adelle understands how important it is to manage her own emotions surrounding resilience to develop thoughts, behaviors, and actions to recover from the high stress and pressure involved in competing at a world standard.

How to have a healthy relationship with social media
1:08:23There are nearly 3.5billion active social media users, and every 6.4 seconds a new account has been created. Many of us use our smartphones as companions. We update our friends, work colleagues and acquaintances on our daily movements and memorable moments in our lives. 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. Some evidence suggests that its use in particular, its overuse — can negatively affect mental health in numerous ways. In today's episode I speak to Niomi Smart, content creator, vlogger and the founder of Smart Skin. With a global following of more than 4.6 million across her digital and social media platforms, Niomi has spent all of her adult life navigating social media. 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?
1:09:40Most food science focuses on the chemical content of what we eat. Only a few decades ago, little was known about the presence and importance of trace elements. Dr David Thomas research has focused the importance and presence of trace elements, and if this is affecting our overall health. Today we certainly 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
1:05:39Meditation 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. Having suffered from severe treatment-resistant depression and anxiety since he was 15, Cornelius began to explore alternative ways at managing the condition. He learnt some meditation techniques and they helped to a degree, but they didn’t seem to resolve his depression. It wasn’t until Cornelius began to travel to India and explore the ancient teachings about the mind that were traditionally taught alongside the practice that my state of mind began to shift in a meaningful way. After some years of searching, he came across a very powerful and ancient set of teachings that brought the practice to a new level. Shortly afterwards Cornelius depression and anxiety came to an end. I then began to teach others what I have learned. This episode is finished on a 10 minute guided meditation by Cornelius.

How to personalise your nutrition
58:11We 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
59:59What often starts with the pursuit of ‘healthy’ eating, can turn into a very restrictive lifestyle and damaging consequences, resulting in nutrient deficiency, malnutrition and severe anxiety around food. 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?

Periods and PMS, what is normal?
57:45Do you ever panic that your period or mood is abnormal and you are the only one? Do you suffer with irregular periods, painful periods, or never quite feeling yourself? For women, our hormones play a large part in how we feel day to day and it can be really difficult to define what is normal for you. To help me answer these questions, I am joined by Ephia Yasmin a sub-specialist in reproductive medicine and surgery and clinical lead of the reproductive Medicine Unit. This highly requested episode is jam packed with everything you need to know covering periods, hormones, PCOS and PMS and how we can manage and support it.
