Mike and Suzie are health coaches, and big names in the health field. They're also married, so quite a bit of their work is on relationships and connections.

In fact, Mike and suzie spend all their time together, what with being married and working together. They have a successful show on nutrition and healthy living, work with clients, and they live together, so how do they do it? How do they get on just so well…  and how do they stay loving to each other.

It turns out that mindfulness is a huge part of what they do… and you’re going to hear about that today. It goes deep - with discussion on stoicism, buddhism and more...

Anyone who describes themselves as an 'anti-guru' is okay in my book. This world of wellbeing and personal development is probably too full of people promising to change your life when actually they couldn't change a lightbulb.

So welcome back one of my all-time fave podcast guests. It's almost a year ago that I interviewed Sarah Knight on Zestology.

She wrote a brililant book called The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F**k!

I keep seeing people reading this book all over London. It's been a huge hit for Sarah. The interview contained such amusing parts as the four categories of potential F*** giving.

Now she's written a new book - Get Your Sh*t Together: How to stop worrying about what you should do so you can finish what you need to do and start doing what you want to do.

So how exactly do we do that?? Let's find out...

“You have the worst facial injury I have ever seen”

Those were the words Days of our Lives actor and Model Andy Hnilo heard when he came round after a horrific car accident in West Hollywood.

His career, his health, and his dreams shattered, he spiralled into a long depression.

And the thing he found that eventually lifted him out, provided his salvation.

Andy now makes an incredible (I'm not using that word lightly) skincare brand with all natural ingredients.

This stuff is the real deal. I'm a total convert. And yes, it's the first time ever I've been persuaded to use a clay mask. 

Why you need to listen to this podcast:

There are a lot of hidden nasties in your skincare products. A lot. I thought I'd sorted out mine, and then I grabbed one and read the ingredients out to Andy. I was in for a shock.

Check out Andy Hnilo's awesome Alitura brand, and listen to Zestology.

A Law of Attraction experiment. Attracting good vibes with author Jeannette Maw #90

Are you ready to fire up your cosmic good vibes?

Last time Jeannette Maw came on Zestology, something very strange happened. We used the Law of Attraction to see if we could get more listeners to the podcast, with incredible results. It turned out to be the most listened-to podcast I've ever recorded, by quite a long way.

So obviously I had to have Jeannette back on, and this time, something even better I hope.

Stand by for a Law of Attraction experiment with Good Vibe Coach Jeannette Maw. 

Before you even listen though, have a think about what you would like to manifest. What you'd like to change, or have in your life that you don't have now. Ready? Okay, time to bring on Jeannette Maw.

This US election was a source of stress for 52% of American adults according to the American Psychological Association. There have been multiple reports of election-related fears arising on therapists’ couches as never before, along with anecdotes of relationships damaged by political disagreement. (Taken from The Guardian).

So whoever you voted for, based on the above figures you may not have feeling quite so much energy, vitality and motivation over the past few days. So when Zestology friend of the show, yogi and adventurer Lucy McCarthy and I met yesterday, the original plan kind of went out the window. 

This isn't a trump-bashing podcast. I'm fully aware that some listeners may have voted for him. It's more about how we deal with the extraordinary stimulation and fear levels that many of us have experienced over the past few weeks, and are still experiencing now.

After election stress, we move on to lighter, and more enjoyable topics including voyaging

Today's podcast guest has such unusual advice I had to put a disclaimer on it.

All material on this podcast is provided for information only and may not be construed as medical advice or instruction. No action should be taken based solely on the contents of this podcast; readers and listeners should consult appropriate health professionals on any matter relating to their health and wellbeing.

So that's that out of the way. Raw Paleo's Melissa Henig is great fun, and has some very unusual dietary habits. I met her recently in California and she is great fun. She is a Health and Beauty Lifestyle Coach, and the author of the book Raw Paleo.  She says Raw Paleo foods are powerful medicine. In this podcast, she has a tough job convincing me!

She's also into Paleo lifestyle factors such as sunlight, earthing, water treatments, detox, correct breathing, natural movement, and relaxation practices.

You'll enjoy today's podcast a lot - even if she may not convince you (or me) to eat what she does.

Nov 4, 2016

Next time on Zestology: 

You won't believe what my guest eats. It's going to take me a lot to get convinced on this diet!

But it's good for you. Research has proven that Raw Paleo foods are powerful medicine.  To further improve her clients’ wellness, Melissa Henig’s coaching program includes Paleo lifestyle factors such as sunlight, earthing, water treatments, detox, correct breathing, natural movement, and relaxation practices.

So I was in California recently. I got to record a few podcasts, not least with Zestology regular The Life Stylist Luke Storey.

Here's what happened when we went to the beach in Santa Barbara and recorded a podcast, joined by our good mate Ryan Carter.

Includes: 

A simple hack to make your fridge totally awesome. (Don't pretend you're not intrigued by this!)

Luke Storey is well known as a stylist, appearing regularly on MTV and VH1 and working with top names like Kanye West, Marilyn Manson, Foo Fighters, Kim Kardashian and many more. But he's also a biohacker, experimenter, coach and he is now becoming as famous for this as for his styling work. 

So as always, there was a lot to talk about.

I am roadtripping, biohacking, and experimenting in California.

Uri Geller has had an astonishing amount of press and publicity over the years. He's been on primetime TV and front page news for bending spoons, paranormal experiments, influencing football matches, being best mates with Michael Jackson and all sorts of other psychic shenanigans.

Now he speaks at huge consciousness conferences and energy events around the world. Hmmm - energy - well, that got me thinking about getting him on Zestology.

I first interviewed Uri 16 years ago when I was a radio presenter on Atlantic 252. I spoke to him a few times over the years, but we'd lost touch until I contacted him recently and asked him to come on the podcast.

This might be one of the more controversial podcasts I've recorded so far. Why? Well, because it's Uri really. Some love him and some don't. But prepare for a fascinating, interesting and fun journey on Zestology today. If you're sceptical about Uri, that's cool, rest assured I ask him about all the negative publicity he's received over the years. I don't let him off lightly.

And then, after that, it's time for a little experiment. And... guess what, it turns out Uri still bends spoons. So grab a spoon, and get listening to the wonderful Uri Geller on Zestology.

How to improve your focus with leading performance coach Karl Morris #83

According to scientists, we are surrounded by so much technology these days, even a goldfish can now focus on something for longer than a human.

Researchers surveyed 2,000 participants, and the results showed the average human attention span has fallen from 12 seconds in 2000, or around the time the mobile revolution began, to eight seconds.

Goldfish, meanwhile, are believed to have an attention span of nine seconds.

Yeh, we need to do something about this.

When I spoke to my friend Karl Morris on Zestology a while back, it got a big response. He's a leading performance coach in the world of sport and kind of a big deal (though he'd be far too modest to admit that himself).

Last time we looked at designing a good day, and asked the question, 'What does a good day look like'.

So we've gone in for more good days, more staying in the present and more what Karl calls Neutral Thinking.  It all adds up to improving your focus and attention.

How will this podcast help you? You'll get tips on staying in the moment, and improving your attention and focus.

And we look at mindset too. Not positive thinking (which can be unrealistic), not negative thinking (which is just meh), but Neutral Thinking, which is more based on being optimistic but realistic at the same time.

Natasha Corrett is one of the UK's best known chefs and healthy eaters. She's got a ridic amount of followers on Insta/Facebook/Twitter etc, but despite all the press she's done and her huge profile, when she met me, it was the first podcast interview she's ever done.

And it was a good one too - very revealing.

I came with at least two things that I'm changing straightaway. One of them, randomly, doesn't involve cooking but high-tech fire alarms. Nice one Natasha and thank you. 

When you listen to the podcast, you'll also hear Natasha and I talking about her, Jamie Oliver, and a very large mushroom. Click here to see the outrageous shroom pic.

Coming up: one of the most emotional stories I've had on Zestology.

Gemma Oaten is a well-known actress here in the UK, rising to fame on Emmerdale. (Try explaining the appeal of Emmerdale to an American!)

Behind her rise though was an almost unbelievable tale of triumph over adversity. She has had it rough. Gemma was only 10 when she first became ill after negative comments at school affected her self esteem. And from there it was a downhill spiral into an eating disorder.

Today on Zestology, Gemma's story of how she nearly lost it all and before getting back to full health and fulfilling her dreams.

The Sleep Doctor - with Dr. Michael Breus #80

How do you sleep? I thought I knew most of the important stuff about sleep, morning routines, and caffeine, but I just interviewed Dr. Oz's sleep doctor specialist, Dr Michael Breus, and he told me some stuff that blew my mind. 

I'm actually writing this with a cup of coffee by my side, and I've changed my morning routine (and coffee routine) because of the information I learnt from Dr. Breus.

He's seriously well qualified. In addition to his private practice where he treats athletes, celebrities, and the like, he also "trains other sleep doctors and consults with major airlines, hotel chains, and retailers to provide the optimum sleep experience for their customers."

So if you're interested in improving your sleep, and therefore performance and energy levels - listen to today's Zestology.

Next time on Zestology:

Dr Breus is a legendary sleep doc and is seriously well qualified. In addition to his private practice where he treats athletes, celebrities, and the like, he also "trains other sleep doctors." That'll do for me.

That's next time on Zestology.

Sascha Kindred has taken part in every Paralympics since Atlanta (yes in the mid 90s). He's got gold medals galore, and all that despite a doctor originally telling him and his family that he would never walk in his life. Coming up:

  • How Sascha overcame adversity to get where he is.
  • The special light-based alarm clock Sascha uses to help him wake up in the morning.
  • Preparation is key, without that he feels lost.
  • His silver medals mean more to him than gold. (Why??)
  • The Queen made a very embarrassing gaffe the first time Sascha met her. (Yes, he's met her multiple times...)
