Dr Jim Bartley: Breathing & Vitamin D Matters

Every time I speak to somebody about breathing, I learn something new. And as the world we live in becomes increasingly more complex, the theme of this podcast is that many of the solutions to enjoying good health are remarkably simple, cheap, accessible, and, most importantly, effective. And what can be more accessible than focussing on breathing? Dr Jim Bartley is an ear nose and throat specialist with more than 30 years of experience. He is an honorary associate professor in surgery at...

ARCHIVE | James Nestor Revisited: Breath – The New Science of a Lost Art

Why do we breathe? How often? How much? Should we breathe through our nose or mouth? How important is this? Hello and welcome to another Healthy Bite, although this week it is also an Unstress episode. I spoke to Dr Theodore Belfor, a true pioneer in the dental world about epigenetic orthodontics and the role of breath. Today, I wanted to stitch in and replay for you a very important episode that we did with James Nestor, who authored the book Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art. James’...


HEALTHY BITE | Social Media, Validation & Clitoracy

On today’s Healthy Bite, I reflect on my conversation with Jessica Pin, her experience with labiaplasty, societal ideas around “normal”, the role of social media, the lack of medical education around female anatomy (which is shocking) and the importance of really listening to our patients.


Jessica Pin: Clitoracy and Labiaplasty

Jessica Pin had a labiaplasty at 18. The surgeon went on to perform an extra part of the operation that she did not consent to…..and things went wrong. Rather than listen to what she was experiencing post-operatively and explore what might have gone wrong, he denied anything physically had occurred and suggested her symptoms were purely psychological. This led Jessica to question many things; the information she had been given about our ideas around “normal” available to us all on the...

HEALTHY BITE | The Art of Branding a Condition… But We Could Do Better

This week on the Unstress podcast I was fortunate enough to speak to Dr Phillip Altman, whom has worked in the pharmaceutical industry for over 40 years. In today’s Healthy Bite I reflect on our conversation and the topics we talked about including what Dr Altman recognised as the three types of science, the role of the pharmaceutical industry, PCR tests, marketing and a story that is easy to miss but difficult to ignore once you hear it.

Dr Phillip Altman: COVID Misconceptions

In this episode, we are diving into the world of COVID-19, vaccines, public health messages, and science in medicine. Today, I sit with Dr Phillip Altman. Phillip has a Bachelor of Pharmacy (Hons), a Bachelor and Masters of Science and a Doctor of Philosophy.

Dr Altman has dealt extensively with the Australian...


HEALTHY BITE | Breathing Retraining, Asthma and Medication

Do you or any of your family have asthma? Well if so, this week’s episode is for you. This week on the Unstress, I spoke to Roger Price. He brought to mind two terms, which I will discuss in this Healthy Bite. Come learn more about asthma, why nasal breathing is important, and how our management structure is a great economic model but a poor health model.

HEALTHY BITE | Thyroid: Nutritional and Environmental Stress

What is the primary function of the thyroid? What effect does iodine or fluoride have on the thyroid? These are some of the interesting things that Dr David Brownstein and I discussed in the podcast and which I will be pondering on today. 15 years ago, I encountered a holistic and integrative medical practitioner when I read his book about Iodine, and this week I am delighted to have him as a guest. Join me as I talk about some of the highlights of our conversation.


HEALTHY BITE | Acceptance, Commitment & Resilience

HEALTHY BITE | Upper Airway – Have You Fulfilled Your Potential?

My conversation with Professor Dave Singh earlier this week was a wonderful experience. Dave is not only a dentist and orthodontist but also a published author and a lecturer at Stanford University. When I first met Dave, which was probably ten years ago, he suggested that I read a book, The Biology of Belief by Bruce Lipton, and I'm very grateful for that. It's an excellent book that everyone should read. In this Healthy Bite, come along as I discuss some of the important takeaways from my...

Prof Dave Singh: Has Your Craniofacial Development Reached Its Potential?

SPECIAL EDITION | Dr Richard Cheng: Evolution, Brain Size & Nutrients…Are We Getting Better or Worse?

Today's episode is a little different in that it started out as an invitation for me to be interviewed and turned into a chat that I thought you might enjoy. Let’s all welcome back Dr Richard Cheng. Last year we had a conversation about the benefits of Vitamin C and the American & Chinese approaches to the pandemic. It was a great episode. This week, join us as Richard and I tackle evolution, brain size, orthomolecular medicine, and so much more. It was a worthwhile conversation to share...

HEALTHY BITE | Uluru Statement from the Heart: Embrace and Learn

In this world of globalisation, inequality and the disenfranchising of local indigenous communities in the process, this kind highlights a theme that I am really passionate about how important local communities are and how much we can learn from the First Nations people. In this Healthy Bite, I want to share the Uluru Statement of the Heart with you. And as we celebrate World Localisation Day, I hope we take this opportunity to reflect and remind ourselves of the importance of connection -...

HEALTHY BITE | The Great Reset: Turbo-Charged Business Model

The Australian Government COVID Treatment Forum was conducted on April 7th, 26 months after the epidemic began, and the government has decided that now is the time to focus on high-risk patients and early treatment. Although the discussion is open to the public on the website health.gov.au, I was able to pull the highlights for a special Unstress edition we released last Tuesday.
