Toby Morrison: Overcoming chronic fatigue (CFS) & turning adversity into passion

#8. Bare with me here for a second. Imagine you are so exhausted you sleep for 18 hours a day and your exercise regiem is to walk for a couple of minutes as you simply can't walk any more.

You are so burnt out, physically you can't do anything. You begin to think you are dying and suicide starts to cross your mind.

This is what Health & Wellness Coach Toby Morrison had to overcome with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). He not only overcame the 'untreatable disease', Toby has turned his adversity into his passion and has inspired thousands of others to do the same.

This is a fascinating and uplifting story and well worth watching whether you suffer from chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) or not.

Robert Beson: Learn the secrets to a healthy gut

#1. In this episode we focus on gut health, where I chat to the other half of 180 Nutrition Stuart Cooke and interview the CEO of Progurt, Robert Beson.

Gut health is essential for a healthy mind and body. The gut is actually scientifically known as the second brain, being there’s a direct connection between our mind and gut. A healthy gut means better health physically, mentally, and emotionally. It’s very important.

The gut is the gastrointestinal tract. It’s the single organ that you can describe as a long tube that begins at the mouth and ends at the rectum. The mouth is the first part of the gastrointestinal tract, so you can understand that when the gut loses balance of good bacteria, it can affect your ear, nose, and throat, virtually every part of your body simply because the gut isn’t performing as it should. In my world, you are your gut.
