This episode is sponsored by Let's Conquer Motherhood, the online membership program for mums, with Lisa York.
 
If you suffer from niggling symptoms and never quite feel in best health, you probably put it down to your busy life, reach for the painkillers, and try to get on with your day as best you can.
 
But did you know that your body is giving you these warning signs and signals that there might be an underlying dysfunction? Your job is to learn to listen to the messages your body is giving you, understand why this is happening, and do something about it.

That's what Jackie Bowker, the mum of a 3 and 6 year old, did. After suffering from adrenal depletion, chronic fatigue syndrome and a decades-long disordered eating and sugar addiction, Jackie learnt first-hand the profound power of food as medicine. As a result of her illness, Jackie became passionate about restoring bodies back to balance to achieve optimal health, and became a Functional Nutritionist.

Jackie went on to establish Hello Happy where, amongst other things, runs a transformative 21 Day Nutrition Course and Plan to detox, reset and revitalise your body to live a healthier life.

In this episode, Jackie will help you identify the root cause of your dysfunction and will set you on the path to heal the body through nutrition, without the need for synthetic drugs or surgery. Her philosophy is simple: the symptoms you’re experiencing like digestive issues, weight gain, infertility, adult acne, anxiety etc, result from weaknesses in the body’s physiological foundations. And it can all be fixed by cleaning up your diet and lifestyle.

Follow Jackie's advice and you'll start to feel vibrant again. You'll shed excess weight, look and feel fantastic and watch niggly problems melt away. As one of her clients so eloquently put it, "Jackie has turned my sluggish body into a strong, lean, high functioning machine and I am now so much better equipped to deal with life's challenges such as raising a small family of 5 with 3 children under 3."

As the mum of a small baby and a two year old, Liz Sergeant knows first hand how much of her energy her kids use up. But unlike the rest of us, Liz has a sneaky advantage.

She's a registered nutritionist and understands that what you eat not only affects your energy levels, but also your sleep quality, mood, concentration, digestion, body shape and many other health complaints. 

Liz believes that the foundation of good nutrition and health is based on eating real foods. She also knows that mums lead busy lives, and with so much conflicting dietary advice out there, this can be a lot harder than it sounds. She founded The Well Nourished Club to help cut through the confusion and support people to change their diet, improve their nutrition and achieve their goals.

But this episode goes beyond just food. Liz takes a holistic approach and as well as talking about nutrition, we discuss adapting to motherhood while running a business, avoiding burnout, and getting the balance right by recognising your limitations and being realistic in what you can achieve. 

Your body is your most precious possession and Liz is here to help you look after it. By the end of this episode you will cast aside the chocolate cake, reclaim your flagging energy, and, like Liz, may even consider eating vegetables for breakfast!

At seven months pregnant, Nicky Clinch is the picture of radiance. Looking at her today, it's hard to believe that during her teens she was gripped by drug addition and suffered with anorexia and bulimia.

It took many long years of learning, growing and changing for Nicky to take her difficult past and turn it into a brilliant future. Today she shares her story of how she found her way back to her oriental roots an created a life of freedom, balance and wholeness.

Nicky now works as a Transformational Life Coach, Macrobiotic Counsellor and Chef. She's the mother to a beautiful and strong little girl and, together with her husband, is preparing to welcome their new baby boy into the fold.

In this episode Nicky explains how you can reconnect to a deep level of trust, love and wisdom within yourself, even when the self-doubt and mummy guilt is running wild. You'll learn to understand and re-align with your true purpose so you can feel confident that you're doing exactly what you're meant to be doing. Once you learn to break free of your limiting beliefs, patterns and emotional stories you can start to embody your most authentic, empowered, and joyous self.

With kids comes clobber. The toys, the clothes, the special equipment. Bigger car. Bigger house. More storage. It goes on and on. But what would happen if you decided not to buy anything new for a year?

I loathe shopping, but even I gasped in shock. What nothing? For a whole year? Impossible.

Well not for Jen Gale. In 2012/13 when her two boys were small, she decided to give it a try. Just for fun. It was a bit of a diversion from changing nappies and running around after children all day.

Little did she know that her Make Do and Mend project would lead her to running a successful blog and podcast and having a Facebook group with 16,000 members.  She's appeared on National TV and in the Guardian newspaper (UK), and has even done a TEDx talk. At the beginning of this year, Jen turned her project into a business when she launched her online membership program, The Good Business Hub.

As you can imagine, I had a lot of questions for Jen. In this episode, you'll find out how she managed special occasions like Christmas and kids birthdays when spending is almost inevitable. How she handled getting the necessary things you need for kids, such as car seats. What happened when essential items, like the washing machine, broke down. And the big one, how she got her husband on board with her seemingly wacky plan.

Most mums, I imagine, would bulk at the idea of not buying anything new for a year, but it's enlightening to hear what Jen learnt along the way about herself, her life, and the world we're all leaving behind for our grandchildren.
