This episode is all about gut health for Bowel Cancer Awareness Month, with the brilliant Robyn Chuter. Robyn is a certified Lifestyle Medicine Practitioner who specialises in helping people reverse serious and chronic illnesses using a plant-based diet and emotional healing through her practice Empower Total Health. Robyn’s original training was in naturopathy and nutrition, and she has since gained qualifications in counselling, EFT therapy, Matrix Re-imprinting and Lifestyle Medicine. Robyn has also completed her Bachelor of Health Science (Honours) and is basically a walking encyclopaedia when it comes to gut health.
