I am often asked about what diet patients should consider, or about different types of exercise for particular health problems, or how to better manage stress. Patients rightly want to know about supplements, vitamins, acupuncture and other alternatives etc…
I know that there is a lot out there about these topics and that it can be really difficult too distinguish that is hype and untrained opinion, one person’s guess at what others should do. What troubles me with this is that a lot of the information is that it is just hype, fad rather than fact. In fact, the recent furore with Chef Peter Evans makes this even more topical.
Medicine has been accused of focusing a lot on disease rather than well-being, and that is true, we do see patients often when they are ill. But that does not mean that we do not have scientifically based advice that we can give patients , either. In fact, there’s been a lot of research done about lifestyle end mental health and how they impact physical health. It’s just that the media and Internet is full of alternatives, rather than what science is showing to be the best way to go.
That’s why I wanted to start a new website with a focus on scientifically based lifestyle and well-being advice. And rather than just focusing on more facts alone, I want to put together a course, that will take you through a step-by-step journey exchanges. There’s no point just knowing what you should be doing, or why , I want to help make the change to integrate these pieces of knowledge into your day-to-day living.
I have made some introductory videos and an example of a practical component too: how to integrate exercise into your daily life. I would love you to have a look at the content for free and give me your thoughts on further topics and changes that can be made so that this course can address what you are after.
