Jules Galloway, Naturopath and Vibrantly Healthy Woman and creator of the 12 week Shiny Healthy You from fatigued to fabulous 12 weeks. Jules is a qualified naturopath who spent her early years doing what most of us do and living life to the absolute limit. Unfortunately, this meant that she also was chronically unwell with a variety of niggling issues that seemed to follow one after the other. Jules was introduced by her friends to the world of natural medicine and mostly good food and decided to go and learn for herself.

Over the last 10 years she has honed her philosophy down to what can only be described as simplicity itself. Put simply it is first and foremost about what you eat and the quality of that food.

Listen as Jules discusses her program that helps women get back to basics, yes basics how to cook and eat really good food.

We also talk about the role of stress in our lives and how that does seem to be at the center of most things that happen to our bodies.

A delightful and enlightening discussion about being healthy by eating simple, unprocessed foods and lots of full-fat dairy, and the importance of managing your stress.

Heather Stewart was just living her life the best way she knew how until one day her husband was diagnosed with diabetes. Then Heather innocently used one of her relatives Blood Pressure machines only to discover she had an undiagnosed heart condition. Heather decided it was time for a change and change she did.

Like a revolution, she swept everything out of her way until she had the healthiest life she could have. Heather shares with us her experience as a woman with a heart condition; takes us through her experience of the diagnostic tests and drugs and talks with me about her fear of dying but more importantly how much healthier she is now than she was when she was 30.

Heather is an inspiration from her willingness to learn how to install Skype to be interviewed so she could share her story, through to her determination to be well by taking good care of herself through her diet and exercise.

Heathers take home message take care of yourself you will feel amazing if you do. Oh and drink more water!
