Being healthy in this crazy, busy, modern world is not easy. The Whole Health Life Podcast is for anyone who wants to take control of their health and find real-world, simple, evidence-based solutions to improve their health from every aspect, adding years to their lives and saving thousands of dollars. Each episode, Shannon Harvey, talks to a world leading scientist about the most important aspects of our health. From dealing with work stress, the food we eat, to improving our relationships at home, or making healthy habits stick, understand how your mind, body, and the world around you influences your health more than you think. Whether you are struggling to get well, or simply want to know what you can do today to stay healthy, this podcast will help you get healthy, find balance, and live better. For host, Shannon Harvey, finding a solution to this problem became personal when she was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease that had no known cause and no known cure. After being told by her doctor that she could end up in a wheelchair, she realised she had to take action. This inspired a ten-year journey, where she spent more than $30,000 on conventional and alternative treatments, searched through thousands of scientific papers, and traveled the world to interview dozens of pioneering health researchers from leading institutions such as Harvard and Stanford. On her road to getting better she met people with remarkable stories of recovery, discovered the truth amidst conflicting medical advice and sorted the quacks from the experts. She made a successful feature documentary, The Connection, about the link between our mind, body and health. She has also written a book, The Whole Health Life, about her personal journey and the latest science that had the most impact on her life.
