Today we have back nutritionist, film maker, best-selling author, international and TEDx speaker, and founder of Changing Habits and The Nutrition Academy, Cyndi O Meara.

In May, we spoke to Cyndi about the changes in agriculture, the chemical food system vs regenerative farming, the importance of community, what wheat is today?, glyphosate, its registered use in Australia and spreading the awareness and manifesting what you want.

Today we, delve deeper into food. We explore our anthropological origins and how that historical knowledge can inform us of how to nourish ourselves properly.

Cyndi also generously shares an in depth look into some of the topics covered in her nutrition course and how knowledge gleamed from the course will not only empower you to nourish yourself but also those around you as well.

Today’s episode also explores some of the rising fear amongst some people in the current climate and Cyndi shares her Top 15 Tips on what you can do to build yourself up instead of being afraid.

There are lots of actionable and empowering gold in today’s episode but there is also some new topics around the current climate mentioned too, we ask that if you so wish to explore those further, that you explore them with an open mind and with critical thinking.
