At the UCA spring conference last weekend, I had the pleasure of meeting and listening to Dr Brett Hill, one of the Wellness Couch docs. Having recently written and published his first book, How to Eat An Elephant (http://www.amazon.co.uk/How-Eat-Elephant-solutions-lifelong-ebook/dp/B007JK5F7C/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1395607833&sr=1-2&keywords=how+to+eat+an+elephant), he has also been heavily involved in the downloadable and very listenable series of podcasts about health and wellness with his two colleagues Laurence Tham, Damian Kristof, and Marcus Pearce. Have a listen, you won’t be disappointed!
‘The Wellness Guys’ Show are a fun filled half hour of education, information and inspiration from three of Australia’s top wellness experts sharing their unique knowledge on the why, the what and the how of acheiving ultimate health and wellness.’
I just wanted to share this lovely and intelligent response from Chaley Scott regarding the article in the Daily Mail today ( http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-2146870/Breastfeed-year-old-Thats-just-selfish-wrong.html) written by a medical doctor (can you believe it?) on extended breastfeeding.
I have a lot more to say about breastfeeding, but that is for another time! Personally, I fed my first sweet babe until 20 months and then gave in to the pressure to stop. At present I am still breastfeeding my second lovely babe and she will be three in September!
Chaley Scott notes that she finds it “scary that our medical profession are so ill-informed” (specifically regarding breastfeeding). I happen to agree, and on far more than just breastfeeding issues! (don’t even get me started on nutrition!)
Have a read and let me know what you think.
