Hedge-Kopkas.png

 

Michele Chevalley Hedge and Simone Kopkas from A Healthy View based in Sydney joins eHealth Radio and the Female Health, Health News & Nutrition Channels.  A Healthy View is a nutrition & wellbeing business with a clinical practice, 1000s of patients, with a radio talk show, appearances on tv, brand ambassadors, and professional wellness speakers.

 

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guests Michele Chevalley Hedge and Simone Kopkas discuss the following:

  • What makes your program different to others out there?
  • What should someone expect from the program?
  • Why is food so important to fertility and pregnancy?
  • What is your favourite thing about the program?
  • Who would you say should be doing this program?

 

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.
