This episode is about prevention. What do we mean by it and how can we make prevention accessible? There is prevention on a public health level but also we take precautions as individuals. I look at examples of both and try to separate out the different types plus a living example of prevention at work (Dr David Unwin). Links: Global patterns of di…
 
Personalised medicine is the future. We live in a world of AI and machine learning and the expectation of medicine is to be more precise.

Self-care sounds pretty obvious but is it? There are so many definitions of self-care and here I make the argument that it is actually totally individual. We know the public health messaging around the basics such as alcohol, smoking, diet, exercise and sleep, but self-care goes way beyond these. What do you think of as self-care? We explore more i…
 
TW: Today’s episode covers death. What is a good death and is it important?

This episode is about mentoring which I think is much needed in the world today. Many of us will have had incredible mentors who selflessly give up their time and knowledge in order to help others.

Sometimes in order to get to the underlying reason behind symptoms that may arise from your lifestyle and environment.
