  • I am an Intensive Care doctor and today I feel scared (NNP #72)

    "I am an Intensive Care doctor and today I feel scared" (NNP #72)

    22/03/2020 Duração: 17min

    I am an Intensive Care doctor. And today I feel scared. This coronavirus pandemic is serious. It is the biggest healthcare emergency I have ever witnessed. We aren’t overwhelmed yet in my country, Australia, but what I have read and heard in the last fortnight from around the world has made me realise we are in the midst of a global catastrophe. In this episode I talk about social distancing and why it is our New Normal. And why we need to do this social distancing extremely well, or we will lose many more people to this novel coronavirus. This podcast is not to scare you. It’s to seek your help in doing the right thing with social distancing which, if done well, should take away a lot of the fear many of us have. In my city, Melbourne, and my country, Australia, people have not been taking things seriously. They are out and about as if life goes on. They are in the pubs, cafes, restaurants, beaches, gyms and shopping centres. And that’s not what they should be doing. I hope I can convince you that what my in

    Milk's effect on health - The New Normal in Action - February 2020 (NNP #71)

    26/02/2020 Duração: 35min

    This entire episode is devoted to a single scientific paper. A recently published scientific article from a high impact factor journal which I think is so important everyone should at least know about it if they haven’t read it. It’s entitled “Milk and Health” and was published in the New England Journal of Medicine in the 13th February 2020 edition. The authors are Walter Willett and David Ludwig from Harvard University in Boston. You can read it yourself if you click here (you’ll need to be or become a subscriber to the Journal) or you can listen to this episode in which I summarise the main points made by the authors. This narrative review article summarises the science on the following topics related to the consumption of cow’s milk and other dairy products: Introduction (including current recommended intakes) Composition of dairy products Growth and development Bone health and fracture risk Body weight and obesity Blood pressure, lipids, and cardiovascular disease Diabetes Cancer Allergies and intoleran

    Helping your brain to think and work smarter with Phil Dobson (NNP #70)

    11/02/2020 Duração: 01h27min

    This episode of the New Normal Project is all about the brain and keeping your brain healthy. It features Phil Dobson who is the creator of BrainWorkshops, the mission of which is to help people get more from their brains. Phil used to be a musician. But when he badly broke his ankle over a decade ago, his career and life radically changed. He trained as a clinical hypnotherapist, set up a practice in London, and rapidly recognised that many of the people he saw knew very little about how their brain functions; and how they could work on improving and maintaining their brain health. He saw many people struggling with sleep, who were significantly stressed, and who seemed to have their brains working against them rather than with them. Phil began to work with businesses, teaching groups of people how to manage stress and to improve their sleep, and as he learnt more about neuroscience and about cognitive and behavioural psychology, he turned this into BrainWorkshops, where he now provides online material, a bo

    The New Normal in Action - January 2020 (NNP #69)

    30/01/2020 Duração: 28min

    This episode is designed to encourage you to take actions to improve your health, fitness and wellness by making changes to your lifestyle, so you can become more fit for life, and thereby move towards your new normal. I tell you about: One recently published scientific paper on sleep I think is worth knowing about Four other recently published scientific papers on sleep you might find worth reading Some books I’ve been reading and recommend for you Some podcasts I’ve been listening to and recommend for you How I went with the 4 challenges I made in the last New Normal in Action episode I invite you to listen to the scientific evidence, experience-based information and real-life stories on this show so you might make choices in leading your life to help you live vibrantly, happily, purposefully, for a long time, disease-free, and above all with a low risk of ever being admitted to the Intensive Care Unit, the place in the hospital I work. Perhaps you might consider a 28 day challenge (or even a 7 day one)

    Gut health, the microbiome, and optimal nutrition for gastro-intestinal disorders - a replay episode with Dr Alan Desmond (NNP #68)

    20/01/2020 Duração: 01h20min

    In this episode of the New Normal Project podcast we replay a previous episode which featured Dr Alan Desmond (broadcast originally as episode 51). Dr Alan Desmond is a gastroenterologist from the UK and is an expert on the gut, the microbiome, gut health, gut disorders like inflammatory bowel disease and bowel cancer, and optimal nutrition. Originally from County Cork, Ireland, Alan completed medical and specialty training in Cork, Dublin and Oxford and is now a Consultant Gastroenterologist in Devon in the South-West of England. With Stephen and David Flynn, of The Happy Pear, he created the Happy Gut course, a 6 week online course designed to help people eat well for their gut health. You can find Alan on Instagram at @dr.alandesmond. Alan and I recorded this conversation in February 2019 when he was in Australia to speak at the Doctors For Nutrition conference. In it we covered Alan’s path to becoming a doctor; the microbiome, what it is and the effect of pre and probiotics; diseases such as bowel cancer

  • The health benefits and risks of exercise - a replay episode with Dr John Orchard (NNP #67)

    The health benefits and risks of exercise - a replay episode with Dr John Orchard (NNP #67)

    13/01/2020 Duração: 01h21min

    This is a replay of a previous episode (number 53) which featured Dr John Orchard speaking on the health effects of exercise. John is a sport and exercise medicine physician who combines work in professional sport (he is Chief Medical Officer for Cricket Australia), research (he has over 250 scientific journal publications), a speaker (at conferences all around the world) and a clinical sports medicine practice. John studied medicine in Melbourne, did some of his training at the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra and now lives and works in Sydney. John and I started out as medical students together many years ago, have remained firm friends, and I have enjoyed watching him become one of the most respected doctors and researchers in sport and exercise medicine in Australia. As John talks about in this episode the benefit/risk ratio of exercise on health may be better than many of the drugs used in medicine. And whilst that doesn’t mean we should give up taking these medications, it’s important we unders

    A plant-based diet helps the climate & your health - a replay episode with Dr Neal Barnard (NNP #66)

    07/01/2020 Duração: 01h02min

    In this episode we replay a previous episode which featured Neal Barnard speaking on how to start plant-based eating and which health benefits you might expect. That episode was number 45. Dr Neal Barnard is a physician, a clinical researcher, and an author from Washington DC. Since 1985, through the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, which he founded, Neal has been conducting valuable scientific studies, providing health-improving clinical care, writing excellent books for the public, and leading important public health advocacy initiatives, all based around the plant-based diet, and the many health benefits it leads to. In the introduction I say a few words about the bushfire crisis Australia is in the midst of. Large parts of our country have been afflicted by ferocious bush fires, which have been burning for weeks and have taken a huge toll on our landscape and the humans and animals that live in these areas. It’s devastating to try and understand the loss of homes, land, businesses, animals a

    Andy Ramage on why you should consider an alcohol-free challenge - a New Year’s eve replay episode (NNP #65)

    30/12/2019 Duração: 51min

    In this episode we replay a previous episode which featured Andy Ramage and which was broadcast originally as episode 46. Andy is an author, a performance coach, an entrepreneur, a keynote speaker (including having done a TEDx talk), and a co-founder of the One Year No Beer movement. He is an ex-professional footballer, an ex-oil broker, has studied mindfulness and neurolinguistic programming, and has a MSc in positive psychology and coaching psychology. Andy’s latest book “Let’s Do This: How to use motivational psychology to change your habits and change your life” came out 4 days ago. It’s a motivation playbook for any type of personal change, from losing 10kg to stepping up in your career to running a half-marathon. It’s full of positivity, and explains the different types of motivation and the tools you need both to make a change and to make it last. This interview was recorded in early 2018. It covers Andy’s story of living in a work culture where alcohol was prominent, how he realised this had become a

    Self-discovery and health transformation through exercise, diet and yoga - Jeff Lester (NNP #64)

    22/12/2019 Duração: 02h10min

    In this episode you’ll hear an inspiring story of transformation through a lifestyle based on a healthy plant, body and mind focus. Jeffrey Lester, originally from Atlanta in the USA, transformed himself from a people-pleasing, academic achievement-focused and obese young adult to a mature, wise, kind and purpose-focused man living a lifestyle of service, exploration and fulfillment, which he does by traveling the world teaching yoga and meditation retreats. I hope you will be intrigued by Jeff’s story as he describes his traumatic childhood, which due to an unhealthy relationship with food, led him to become significantly overweight, weighing close to 130kg. As he buried himself in high school and university studies, aiming to achieve academically, Jeff realised he was very unhappy with his life situation. He had begun to be more physically active, which then led to him eating more healthy food and becoming passionate about running group fitness classes. When one day a friend told him “if you do what you lov

    The New Normal in Action - December 2019 (NNP #63)

    18/12/2019 Duração: 27min

    This episode is designed to encourage you to take actions to improve your health by living a more plant-based, body-moving and mind-focused lifestyle, thereby moving towards your new normal. I tell you about: Three recently published scientific papers worth knowing about (one on napping, one on physical activity, and one on dietary protein intake) Some videos, podcasts and books I’ve valued lately What's been recently happening in one of my healthy lifestyle pillars - sleep Four new challenges I’ve made after hearing some of the recent guests on the show I invite you to listen to the scientific evidence, experience-based information and real-life stories on this show so you might make choices in leading your life to help you live vibrantly, happily, purposefully, for a long time, disease-free, and above all with a low risk of ever being admitted to the Intensive Care Unit, the place in the hospital where I work.

    Dr Michael Greger - Healthy nutrition and healthy weight loss, based on evidence (NNP #62)

    10/12/2019 Duração: 42min

    Dr Michael Greger is featured on this episode of the New Normal Project. Yes, the good doctor from NutritionFacts.org, the book How Not To Die and his latest book How Not to Diet, which was released today. When I was at medical school we learnt all about diseases, syndromes, drugs and procedures. There was very little education about nutrition. I don’t remember being told the sickest patients in our hospital mostly have the conditions which are heavily influenced by the lifestyles they lead. Conditions like heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, hypercholesterolaemia, obesity and cancer. And noone ever mentioned these could be treatable or at least halted in their progression using simple lifestyle interventions. So when I came across a doctor like Dr Michael Greger who, after witnessing his grandmother’s health transformation through nutrition, decided to read every research study on nutrition in the English language and made it his life mission to help people with clear and understandable messages about the

    Dr Jackie Busse - Healthy children make healthy adults (NNP #61)

    03/12/2019 Duração: 01h16min

    Are you aware adult health is influenced by what we eat as adults AND as children?   Whilst it might seem difficult to believe the food we eat early in life can influence the diseases we develop and how long we live, most of us do understand that childhood nutrition is at least a little bit important. And that foods like cow’s milk, soft drinks and sugar-laden processed foods might not be the best things we can feed our children. So if you are a parent, a grandparent, a budding parent, or even a child, you’d do very well to listen to American pediatrician, Dr Jackie Busse on this episode of the New Normal Project podcast. Jackie is a board certified pediatrician with expertise in plant-based nutrition for kids and families. She grew up in Madison, Wisconsin, received her undergraduate and medical degrees from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, before training in pediatrics at Rush University in Chicago. Shortly after moving to California in 2011, she was introduced to "The China Study" and it changed her l

    Episode 60: Gemma Newman - A GP helping patients to heal themselves with a holistic plant-based lifestyle

    27/11/2019 Duração: 01h27min

    This episode features Dr Gemma Newman, a knowledgeable, caring and helpful UK General Practitioner, who practices lifestyle medicine based around a whole-food plant-based diet and the core belief that the body can naturally heal itself if it’s given the right conditions. Gemma is the sort of doctor we could all do with visiting no matter how healthy we feel. We can no doubt all improve our lifestyles, particularly with the growing evidence to support the ability of a plant-based lifestyle to prevent, reverse, or at least halt the progression of chronic diseases such as heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, obesity and cancer. And from my perspective as an Intensive Care doctor, the less chronic disease due to a healthier lifestyle, the the less likely you are to ever meet someone like me by becoming a patient in the ICU. Gemma, the Plant Power Doctor, can be found through her website, on Instagram (@plantpowerdoctor), on Twitter (@drgemgem) and on Facebook. She has a specialist inter

    Episode 58: Adam Guthrie - An inspiring transformation from heart attack to healthy and mindful plant-based living

    04/11/2019 Duração: 01h31min

    On this episode my inspiring guest is Adam Guthrie, whose health and vitality was amazingly transformed when he found out about and then adopted a whole food plant-based diet after having a heart attack at age 39. Adam started his career as a chef but his vocation drifted into real estate where he was overeating junk food and became overweight and depressed. And despite thinking that his vegetarian diet was healthy, Adam had a heart attack at age 39. In this podcast, Adam tells you what it felt like to have a heart attack, the medical treatment he received and his cardiologist’s advice that he would need life long heart medications. Adam now wishes his doctor had given him the option of transitioning to a whole food plant-based diet as, having done so, he is now amazingly fit and healthy; so much so that he no longer needs the medication, surfs most days, and has even completed an ironman triathlon. His current lifestyle includes a diet full of vegetables, fruits, legumes and whole grains, a daily meditation

    Episode 56: Brad Dalrymple - Ultra endurance exercise fuelled by plants

    09/09/2019 Duração: 01h22min

    This week’s guest is triathlete and Ultraman Brad Dalrymple. With most of the recent episodes focused on how plant-based eating can improve health and fight disease, it’s time to change tack and discuss what else a plant-based diet can do - in terms of improving and sustaining athletic performance. Exercise is vital to our health. It helps us to move our bodies and to enjoy nature. Exercise also allows us to participate in sport, thereby utilising the healthy competitive urge we have as humans so we can go further, go faster or be stronger. If that’s what we want. For me, when I hear of someone who exercises harder, longer and faster than I do, I take notice. And when they do this on a plant-based diet, and they perform amazingly, recovering better than the average athlete, they are worth taking significant notice of. A bit over a decade ago, Brad Dalrymple was a regular Australian man, working as an environmental engineer, and playing a few ball sports in his mid-late 20s. When his father had a double knee r

    Episode 55: Aggie & Kasia from the Plant Powered Mothers - Advocating a plant-based lifestyle to mums and families

    13/08/2019 Duração: 01h25min

    This week on the podcast you’ll meet Aggie and Kasia, the Plant Powered Mothers. Come and join us as I ask them about their transitions to a plant-based lifestyle and the advocacy they do through the Plant Powered Mothers podcast. You can find them at www.plantpoweredmothers.com. After a decent gap between episodes here is a conversation with 2 first cousins focused on “helping other mums to make informed decisions about the food they eat and the food they feed their families”. Aggie is an intensive care nurse who struggles because the Intensive Care treatment model does not teach patients how to reverse or prevent chronic disease. Once Aggie discovered the many benefits of a wholefood plant-based diet she completed the certificate in Plant Based Nutrition through eCornell University to help educate and guide others to make the connection between food and disease. As a wife and mother of three, Aggie tells a great story of her family’s transition to a plant-based lifestyle. Kasia has a background in writing a
