058 How the gut affects your mood and hormones | Brittney Prendergast

I wasn’t a person who suffered with tummy related issues… for me it was the emotional and mental struggles with anxiety and depression was how my gut issues were showing themselves

Brittney is an author, holistic wellbeing coach and now trains others to follow their passion in the wellbeing space.

041 Chew on this | Meliors Simms

I’m really trying to set people up to keep their teeth for life
— Meliors Simms -

When someone calls themselves a Holistic Tooth Fairy there’s a curiosity that sparks in me because we don’t often talk about our teeth in relationship to our health.  As a consumer educator Meliors Simms is bringing this conversation mainstream.  Meliors talks with such passion about healing her own teeth using a systemic approach and what is really interesting to me is that a number of other ailments cleared up too.  As she says the “mouth is the gateway to the body” and I concur that this is also to your wellbeing.

“What happens when we heal the gums and the teeth is that we also simultaneously increase the bodies resistance to bacteria and we are minimising the flow of bacteria from our mouth”
