In this episode I speak with Christine Barnes, a naturopath, wellness professional and long term yoga practitioner. We dive into some important topics for modern yoga practitioners. What is the best diet for you versus what some tradition might say or what the latest You Tube influencer wants to sell you. Diet is an individualised journey that should be based on intuition, testing and some trial and error. There is no one size fits all diet that will work for everyone on the planet.
We talk about the challenges of Veganism and how long term this can lead to diminished health, energy levels, brain size and even intelligence. We discuss the microbiome and how we can hack our environment to influence better bacterial health. We also speak about the practice of hormesis and how placing temporary stressors on the body will help it to grow back even stronger.
Christine also shares her Masters research on managing anxiety and how the simplest breath technique of left nostril breathing was found to be as effective as anything else.
