Nicki and her husband Roger Beattie farm on Banks Peninsula.
They are organically certified and have a diverse range of income streams based on and around the farm.
From their Wyld Lamb and wool products, to NZ Kelp even growing blue pearls in Paua shells, its safe to say Nicki lives a full life!
In this episode Nicki talks about her fascinating experience treating patients and the changes in best medical practice over her time spent as a doctor.
From Margarine to Butter.
Fat is bad to fat is good.
From antibiotics being the answer to a focus on nutrition and diversifying the gut biome.
From little to no allergies to now where we see allergies everywhere, her journey in the medical world is very similar the treating of symptoms in farming we have observed over the last 50 years.
Nicki has been a qualified medical doctor for 40 years and has a very deep understanding of the importance of nutrition and mindset with regards to your physical and mental health.
This understanding made it challenging for Nicki to follow the generic "protocol" of giving out synthetic treatments to cover up symptoms in patients during her time as a practitioner when she knew a lot of these problems could be prevented by addressing the root cause with nutrition and mindset.
Tune in to this fascinating conversation about human health.
