The Wellness Couch Episode #67 - Professor Ian E Brighthope - Treatment Protocols To Help COVID -19 Immunity
Campbell Craig is an exercise physiologist at Great Ocean Road Health.
Together with the rest of the staff, he's launching a virtual challenge to all of us to step out on the Great Ocean Road Health Hike Walk - From Point Impossible to the 12 Apostles, 29 days at 10,000 steps a day.
There will be badges. There will be videos. There will be teams and solo flyers. Most of all there will be a lot of fun. Listen to the podcast, check the Great Ocean Road Health website and count down to the September lift-off!
Shuffling off the mortal coil is a once in a lifetime activity, so it's worth thinking about how you'd like to make the trip.
Community Nurse, Ingrid and Liz Forrester from GREAT OCEAN ROAD HEALTH are keen to chat to locals young and old to address and record your wishes and treatment preferences when it comes time to deal with the inevitable.
It's well worth a listen.
Just because the doors are shut doesn't mean that Marrar Woorn has slowed down. Quite the reverse! Sally Forrester and her Neighbourhood house team are busy in the virtual world AND the real world with a free concert, free masks, food parcels and much more.
A dedicated career health professional, Andrea Russell is Great Ocean Road Health's Director of Clinical Services. She oversees the standards in both Lorne and Apollo Bay. It's a big job at the best of times, but with COVID it's especially demanding. Take a minute to meet Andrea and the challenges she faces.
Episode #65 - The Wellness Couch chats to Integrative Medicine Specialist & Author, Dr Catherine Fyans
Dr Catherine Fyans, MMBS - Integrative Medical Practitioner with 40 years of experience, author of The Wounding of Health Care - joins us.
In our current state - Media is perpetuating fear and not disseminating both sides of medical journalism. Much is being censored that is creating polarisations and divisions between the population. Unfortunately this is creating much stress - prolonged stress is creating survival mechanisms within us that are hostile. Are we getting the whole story on the virus?
Catherine has worked as a medical practitioner, as her ‘day job’, for many years, and for most of that time as an ‘integrative’, or ‘holistic’, general practitioner. She has also trained in, and been informed by, other health care disciplines, including kinesiology, and is passionate about integrating the best of these different health care disciplines. Her interest in other health care practices has challenged many of the dogmas that were instilled during her medical training. She believes that no one group ‘owns’ health care and that the authority of one’s health should be rightfully handed back to the client.
It doesn't matter what angle we look at our current situation, we are all in agreeance that something is quite not right. With all due respect to those who have died with the virus and those most at risk, tonight we open our minds and view the current pandemic from a different angle and discuss what viruses can teach us by upgrading our genomic sequence.
- The effects of sustained fear on the immune system
- Mass testing and positive 'cases' - what does this actually mean?
- Pro’s and con’s of wearing a mask. What does the science say?
- What are the health and wellbeing implications of the current sanctions?
- Susceptibility to infection rather than just focusing on barrier methods to viral spread.
