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!
