MicheleHedge

Michele Chevalley Hedge is a Nutritionist, Health Writer and Presenter. There may be many wellness practitioners stepping into the space of health and food but there are not many Nutritionists that come from the corporate, busy background, have three kids and really understands the modern requirements for health, happy hormones, a firing libido and vitality.

Due to Michele’s former role as a Marketing Manager she truly understands the needs of a busy, time poor corporate executive who wants health but not hassle. She is often introduced by the editors of health magazines as “the modern day nutritionist – the one who likes a bit of wine and coffee.” She is not Paleo Pete or I Quit Sugar but perfectly placed somewhere in the healthy middle.

Michele’s clinical practice experience allow her to share stories of patients and their nutritional transformation that gives the audience goose bumps – the kinds of stories that can only be heard if you are at the ‘coal face’ with clients. Women who say their addiction to food caused their divorce, executives who say they don’t like going to the boardroom without her five top tips, and politicians and their families who come to her wellness retreats. Wiley Publishing commissioned Michele to write Beating Sugar Addictions for Dummies two years ago. When she asked why they chose her, Wiley replied because of her evidence based research skills, ability to take a medical issue and turn it into simple concepts, use of humour around delicate matters, tv presenting on the World Health Organisation new recommendation of sugar, and Sarah Wilson, I Quit Sugar, recommend her!

When Michele is not out speaking, writing or seeing patients, she can often be found at her cafe, The Balmoral Boatshed. It is the perfect spot for filming, interviewing, or just enjoying a glass of wine (which she can tell you ways it will reduce your cortisol and lead to a calmer, happier and perhaps leaner person)! Michele is the Nature Care College Ambassador and Accor Group Nutritionist and recently sat alongside the Dalai Lama at a conference where she presented on ‘Vitality, Energy and Serotonin – It’s all in Your Food’. Mental health and nutrition research is her passion and she often declares “It makes the New Yorker come out in her.”

Michele loves to write, so along with her blog and social media, she writes often for Body & Soul, Huffington Post, Mama Mia, The Glow, Prevention, Wellbeing, Clean, Cosmo, MindFood and many more. Her second book, ‘Hormone Help- reset your weight, mood, libido & energy in 4 weeks’ will be out at the end of this year. Michele often appears on The Sunrise Show to discuss the WHO’s (World Health Organisation’s) nutrition recommendation on cancer and sugar.

Michele’s business, A Healthy View, expanded to New York and the US last year with the addition of her online programs.

Why 40% of newborn babies won’t stop crying and what to do about it

March 5, 2017
00:0000:00

Gai-Williams_small-233x300.png

 

Gai Williams, an Australian pharmacist, international author and a partner in a business called Willby's Wind and Colic which provides help, support, advice and natural solutions to new moms whose newborn babies are suffering the debilitating effects of wind, colic and reflux joins eHealth Radio and the Children's Health and Health News Channels.

 

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Gai Williams discuss the following:

  • What prompted you to change from the community pharmacy to your new business Willby;s Wind and Colic?
  • What is colic, what causes it and how long does it last?
  • How does your Willby's product differ from other commercially available products on pharmacy shelves?
  • How did your book No More Tears Colic Relief come about?
  • I believe you have a free advice service associated with your business - tell us about that.

 

Gai Williams, B. Pharm., A.F.A.I.P.M., is an entrepreneurial Australian pharmacist and author of the book “No More Tears Colic Relief”.

During her extensive pharmacy career, she has gathered experience from a multitude of business and pharmacy seminars and pioneered many pharmacy firsts. Twice she has offered her pharmacy premises to be the flagship for new pharmacy concepts, she has become a barista to install a Gloria Jean’s Coffees franchise within her pharmacy and established Pharm-A-Temp which was the first independent fee for service pharmacy locum business in Victoria.

Her passion for pharmacy began when she was employed as a Saturday morning girl in her local pharmacy and the desire to make a difference in the pharmacy world has never waned. She believes in offering the best products and advice possible and her search for excellence has culminated in her first published book about baby colic relief –a condition which affects 40% of babies and about which there has been little information until now.

Gai’s professional pharmacy career has been enhanced along the way by receiving awards such as an associate fellowship of the Australian Institute of Pharmacy Management, a finalist berth in the Telstra Business Women’s Awards in 2000 and her achievement of becoming the first female chairperson of Guardian Pharmacies Australia.

She has been a speaker at many pharmacy courses and business conferences and continues to investigate every possibility to enhance the competitive retail health market.

Gai is committed to making a difference in the healthcare of her patients and believes that the community pharmacy model in Australia is the best in the world.

Her belief in making a difference and giving back has resulted in a lifetime commitment to parent committees during her children’s education and a leadership role as President of the Boronia Chamber of Commerce – a position she held for many years. She has also served as a business representative on many Knox Council committees. She is also the current Vice Chair of the Board of Mt Evelyn & Districts Financial Services which oversees the running of both the Mt Evelyn and Montrose branches of the Bendigo Community Bank network.

Gai is still a practicing pharmacist and, with her business partner Greg, has established Willby’s Wind and Colic –Australia’s only destination hotline for mums needing support, advice and treatment solutions for their babies suffering from the debilitating effects of wind, colic and reflux. Calls and emails are answered by a pharmacist with at least 15 years of experience in the wind and colic space so mums are always receiving the best expert advice.
