Angela Emmerton, Clinical Nutritionist and Founder of Nutritional Matters, which helps people solve their health problems through practical nutritional solutions, so they can feel the best they can be joins eHealth Radio and the Health News & Nutrition Channels.

 

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Angela Emmerton discuss the following:

  • There’s so many diets today and it’s confusing knowing what to eat – so how do we eat well for good health?
  • So how do we get back to basics and eat ‘real wholefood'?
  • In your expert opinion what is the key ingredient which keeps people on track and eating well for life?
  • What if you’re on a low-budget – can you still eat well?
  • What are the foods we need to avoid for our health sake?
  • Finally, how do you encourage your patients to eat well for life?

 

As an ambassador for ‘That Sugar Film’, Angela believes – and the science shows – that good health is the product of good nutrition.

Angela has spent over 10 years studying all things nutrition, including the eastern philosophy of food as medicine and combined this with studies in social sciences and counselling.

Her practice is under-pinned by the latest evidence-based nutritional medicine, following scientific research on nutrition, nutrients and positive lifestyle practices. However, having spent over 20 years in the corporate working world she understands the effect modern day life has on a person’s health. Her approach is based on ‘keeping it real’ and her recommendations are informed by reality and practical for everyday busy people.

Angela work’s in private practice at McMahon’s Point and in Sydney’s CBD and helps people solve their health problems and transform their lives, turning their health around, from symptoms including; excess weight, hormonal imbalances, fatigue, sleep, anxiety, depression, poor digestion (IBS), food intolerances, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, thyroid dysfunction, etc.

Angela continues to be called upon to provide her expertise in this field of nutritional medicine.  During 2016 she was selected as the nutritionist for Todd Sampson to undertake a nutritional dietary assessment, as part of Todd’s preparation for the six part TV series ‘Bodyhack’.  

Angela is also an advisory team member for ‘SugarByhalf’, a not-for-profit organisation who aim to reduce Australia’s sugar consumption and help combat childhood obesity and chronic disease.

As a trusted advisor, Angela speaks to variety of audiences, empowering them to take responsibility for their health and wellbeing through workshops, corporate talks, presentations and in-service education to complimentary healthcare practitioners.

In addition, Angela facilitates movie screenings of ‘That Sugar Film’ and discussions, for business groups, workplaces and communities, providing educational tools and techniques for people to make informed choices to benefit their own health.

No two DNAs are the same, making your nutritional requirements unique.

Angela’s mission is to transform peoples lives by offering practical nutritional solutions, tailored to each unique ‘individuals’ need, so they go on to lead productive and balanced healthy lives.

Getting Help With Your Issues Has Never Been This Easy!

Getting Help With Your Issues Has Never Been This Easy!

Dr. Michiel Bosman MD & PhD the Founder of Open Forest, a self-help online protocol designed to help users with their mental health issues joins eHealth Radio the Health News & Mental Health Channels.

 

Listen to host Eric Dye & guest Dr. Michiel Bosman discuss the following:

  • Can you tell us the story behind Open Forest and why you created it?  What is your background?
  • What results are you finding with Open Forest and from the people you talk to that are using it?
  • Is there a specific audience or problem that Open Forest helps the most?
  • How is Open Forest changing the way we manage our mental health care?  In other words, does having the opportunity to have "on demand" help make a significant difference for users and why?
  • Does Open Forest work in concert with your mental health or medical professional or is it a stand alone product so that users don't need to rely on your traditional medical/mental health professional as much and/or in times of crisis or is Open Forest more of an "as you go" health tool and why?

As a psychiatrist, I am always on the lookout for truly epic content about mental health issues to share with my patients. This collection of evidence-based, useful and relevant articles has lead to the Open Forest initiative. My MD/PhD crew and I add new content daily, with the help of an ever-growing group of contributors from all over the world!

We not only offer unique, high-quality blog posts, but also mental health self-tests and our acclaimed self-help modules.

Whether you use these self-help modules on your own, or in a “blended therapy” setting (which basically means you combine self-help modules and regular counseling sessions), we are pretty sure you will find the website useful.
