Welcome to Season 3, episode 6 of the season dedicated to wholefoods in the marketplace. This week, your co-hosts Jon Moore and Rich Bowden take off on a bit of a tangent from the usual real food theme by interviewing Mark Spencer — founder of the soon-to-be-released environmentally-themed podcast Climactic (5 June 2018).

In the show Jon and I ask Mark what motivated him to start Climactic, what he aims to achieve, what topics he will cover as well as how he intends to reach his target audience — regular people like you and I.  

To quote Mark:

“On twitter, facebook, instagram, and reddit, it’s @climactic. The website is climacticshow.co and will feature articles from the hosts, and hopefully from other contributors. You can email the show, hello@climacticshow.co, and news and topic suggestions, guest recommendations, and personal stories of listeners are warmly welcome.

To allow enough time to get the show to a high standard, Climactic will launch on World Environment Day, the 5th of June. But look out for a trailer and maybe some special, teaser episodes before then.”

We are what we absorb

One of the key concepts that EMUWellness founder Mel Blundell outlined in her informative interview with The Real Food Chain’s Jon Moore in episode three of our podcast was that “we are more than we eat, we are what we absorb”.

In other words, it’s as much our body’s ability to absorb nutrients as it is about the food we consume. So how did Melinda spell this out to our listeners? In particular, what is the cause and symptoms of leaky gut syndrome? Continue reading “We are what we absorb”

Can fasting help reverse the symptoms of diabetes?

News Information Newsletter Newspaper

Research on mice has suggested that a specialised fasting diet may help regenerate the pancreas to enable it to control blood sugar levels. The study — conducted by the University of Southern California — has major implications for diabetics, both Type 1 and Type 2, as it will potentially help reverse the symptoms of diabetes by allowing the pancreas to regulate high blood sugar levels by releasing insulin into the bloodstream.

Experts interviewed by the BBC said the findings were “potentially very exciting”.
