Happy and Healthy Podcast
Nutritional Medicine Practitioner Fiona Kane and Cultural Activist Ian Zammit co-host Happy and Healthy: the podcast for people keen to live happier and healthier lives! Follow our podcast on Facebook.
In the premiere episode of the series, which is streaming on demand below, Fiona and Ian open the conversation by discussing “Embrace”, the documentary of Australian former body-builder Taryn Brumfitt’s experiences with body-shaming and living a happy life. The main conversation is a second documentary, The Big Fat Fix, which focuses on film-makers Donal O’Neil and Dr Aseem Malhotra’s discoveries around the health benefits of natural fats. Following the film-makers’ journey to Italy, Fiona and Ian discuss the importance of fats found in a traditional Mediterranean lifestyle, and what changes we can make to our lifestyle to gain these benefits.
Kicking off our second podcast with The Latest, Fiona & Ian discussed Sugar by Half, who promote action to protect current and future generations from the health dangers of added sugar. This initiative was started by Prof Peter Brukner who is specialist sports and exercise physician currently working with the Australian cricket team and a team of other health professionals. Shane Watson, Aussie Cricketer is a big supporter of this initiative.
The Topic for this podcast is the documentary film What’s With Wheat. Fiona and Ian discuss wheat and gluten and some of the health issues that are now being linked to their consumption. We also look at why wheat has become such a big issue today, and what are some of the changes that have occurred including changes to the plant, what monocultures are, the addition of chemicals and the effects on our microbiome.
The topic for Happy and Healthy’s third podcast is Happiness and what we can do to achieve it.
Ian and Fiona start by discussing how nutrition and certain foods influence our mood, then they discuss movement/exercise and how it works as stress relief and overall supports your mind and body. They then move onto talking about good relationships and good friendships an how important they are for happiness. After that Ian and Fiona discuss one of Fiona’s favourite topics, the power of gratitude. Gratitude allows what you have to be enough, it also helps you to sleep better and feel happier.
Lastly they talk about having fun, doing things that make you laugh and make you smile which is so essential to relax and reduce stress!
