The Big Fat Fix film: http://www.thebigfatfix.com/
The Big Fat Fix is a brilliant film. It gives bite-sized looks at food as medicine and diet and lifestyle in disease treatment and prevention by Dr Aseem Malhotra, Cardiologist and Donal O'Neill producer of Cereal Killers 1 and 2 (both excellent films).
In The Big Fat Fix, Malhotra and O'Neill travel to Pioppi in southern Italy where the residents enjoy longevity and a healthy old-age with low rates of heart disease, diabetes and dementia. Dr Malhotra recommends the Pioppi Protocol should as our dietary model, Malhotra says. His first advice to patients (he works at the Lister Hospital in Stevenage) is that they should eat a handful of nuts a day. Then they should cut all processed and refined sugar. They should never buy anything marked low-fat but should eat lots of veg and oily fish, which is high in Omega 3. Counting calories is out too: “It’s the quality of the calories you are eating that matters, not the number.” The film is available here: http://www.thebigfatfix.com/
How to Make Stress your friend, TED Talk by Kelly McGonigal. Stress. It makes your heart pound, your breathing quicken and your forehead sweat. But while stress has been made into a public health enemy, new research suggests that stress may only be bad for you if you believe that to be the case. Psychologist Kelly McGonigal urges us to see stress as a positive, and introduces us to an unsung mechanism for stress reduction: reaching out to others.

Books/resources for Emotional Health
The Power of Vulnerability by Brené Brown, this 6 hour lecture style books is brilliant, one of Fiona's all time favourites and should be taught in school. Best price audio download is at audible.com.au.
Show Up and Let Yourself be Seen
Is vulnerability the same as weakness? “In our culture,” teaches Dr. Brené Brown, “we associate vulnerability with emotions we want to avoid such as fear, shame, and uncertainty. Yet we too often lose sight of the fact that vulnerability is also the birthplace of joy, belonging, creativity, authenticity, and love.” On The Power of Vulnerability, Dr. Brown offers an invitation and a promise - that when we dare to drop the armor that protects us from feeling vulnerable, we open ourselves to the experiences that bring purpose and meaning to our lives. Here she dispels the cultural myth that vulnerability is weakness and reveals that it is, in truth, our most accurate measure of courage.
“The Power of Vulnerability is a very personal project for me,” Brené explains. “This is the first place that all of my work comes together. This audio course draws from all three of my books - it’s the culmination of everything I’ve learned over the past twelve years. I'm very excited to weave it all into a truly comprehensive form that shows what these findings and insights can mean in our lives.”
