behind the scenes


For anyone on holiday travels, here's a podcast for your journey:

We go behind the scenes in nutritional therapy and discuss how consultations really work, covering spirituality, hidden soil fungi, and biscuit cravings along the way.

Dr Johnson Tamlit is a retired anaesthetist who recently co-founded Momentum Life Choices

Many thanks to Johnson for a fun conversation!
