54:33In todays episode I speak with Ray Griffiths about the importance of our mitochondria, a sub-component of our cells that used to be a bacteria 1.5 billion years ago.

The Immune System with Dr. Jenna Macciochi
1:10:09I speak with Dr. Macciochi about the foundations of a healthy immune system: personalised nutrition, appropriate physical activity and stress management techniques, and adequate sleep. Note the use of language here - a key theme running through todays conversation is context. Something that is always lacking in conversations around nutrition and lifestyle. Another key theme from today is consistency. We simply have to be consistent in creating health.
