Professor Marc Cohen joins us this week to discuss his incredible career and breadth of study to date, as well as what he has found so far to be the highest ‘contributors to wellness’ in his areas of study, patient care, research papers, and teachings. As well as being a GP, he holds PhD’s in Chinese Medicine, Psychological medicine and Physiology and works through many areas, from patient care to research, association chairing to policy making, not to mention teaching – without a doubt he is one of our brightest minds in the quest for making our people and planet healthier, with this show uncovering some crucial basics to achieving wellness.
Check out Professor Cohen’s website here. Where you can read more about what Marc calls the ‘Wellness Pyramid’ – which are the five key factors to our health:
Be (be ourselves and be present)
Relax (hobbies / whatever you do to enjoy life / stress management)
Eat good food
Share your feelings.
You can check out the books Marc has written here, including the one mentioned in today’s show ‘Herbs and Natural Supplements’ which contains info about the Tulsi Krishna Basil plant – the ‘ultimate adaptogen’. If you’re interested in getting your hands on one of these plants, but don’t know anyone who already has one from whom you can swipe a cutting, you could look into purchasing one here (online option for Australian residents).
And finally… THIS WEEK’S LIVE HAPPIER, HEALTHIER AND BETTER CHALLENGE FROM PROF COHEN: Find yourself a Tulsi plant! and if you can’t do that, then at the very least, eat something everyday that you’ve grown yourself … and a little extra bonus challenge from us here at Low Tox Life > Take yourself out of your comfort zone, start your day with a cold shower – DIY cold shock therapy!
Enjoy the show and thanks again for taking the time to rate and review the show – it’s like tipping the bartender and it means the world. (To do this from your phone, you can’t be ‘in the show list’. Go to the podcast search function and type low tox life, and then click on the show and click ‘review’. Annoyingly tricky but hey. I figured I may as well help you out if you’re going to want to take the time to leave a review!)
