Miguel Toribio-Mateas feels like a kindred spirit. I don’t say that about too many people, but it’s rather rare that I meet fellow scientists who have a practical, artistic view into life. You’ll see what I mean when you listen to this discussion as it unfolds. We seemed to move easily between the high-level science and feet-on-the-ground practical application. Miguel is from Spain, but lives in London, where he is an experienced nutrition practitioner (BSc Hons Nutritional Medicine) and clinical neuroscientist (MSc) with 10 years’ clinical experience following a functional/lifestyle medicine approach. In 2016, Miguel was awarded a prestigious Santander Bank Universities Work-Based Learning Scholarship for doctoral research on the impact of nutrition on brain health with a focus on the relationship between gut microbiota and cognitive function at the School of Health and Education of Middlesex University in London. Miguel is particularly interested in the translation of science findings to clinical practice, and on gathering of real-world data such as patient-generated outcomes or “subjective measures of wellbeing” that arise out of consultations with nutrition practitioners. Miguel is also the Chair of the British Association for Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine (BANT). You can find him on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook as @miguelmateas.

Experiencing trauma in our lives is a significant risk factor to our eventual health outcomes and risk for chronic disease. Unfortunately, we do not hear enough about it. And not just about trauma – but what we can do to heal it. Award-winning nutritional therapist, bioenergetic and psychology practitioner, Niki Gratrix (www.nikigratrix.com), will share the science of trauma and several ways we can reverse the impact of trauma through food, taking care of the gut, reprogramming our circadian rhythm, and stimulating the vagus nerve through a host of techniques.
Some people eat based on their body, others have a strong emotional connection with food, while still others may be mentally entangled in their thoughts about how to eat. Each of these single, solo approaches is not necessarily complete on their own. Based on my own eating journey, I came to realize that most people have a fragmented relationship with food, and what we really crave is to bring our whole self in a united manner into the everyday of eating. In this podcast, I talk about the 7 aspects of our whole self and how we can bring more of them into our daily dietary decisions.
You’ve heard about “intermittent fasting,” or a temporary break or pulling back from eating food to allow for the body to regenerate and heal. In this podcast, I’m discussing what I’ve coined as “intermittent resting,” or the ability to get small, short bursts of less environmental inputs throughout the day, like less stress, less sounds, less information to process. We need to balance the yin with the yang, and with so many of us on yang overdrive, we need the ability to rest and digest all of what we are doing. In this podcast, I provide you with three basic tips that everyone can do to intersperse more pause in their daily life.
