2: The myth of normal and addressing trauma with Dr Gabor Maté and Daniel Maté
I am so unbelievably honoured to welcome Dr. Gabor. Maté and Daniel Maté to discuss their latest book, The Myth of Normal. Dr. Gabor Maté is a world renowned physician and trauma expert. He's written numerous bestselling books and changed the lives of millions. Through his pioneering work with addiction, mental health and trauma for over 30 years, his breakthrough work has helped shed light on the connections between physical and mental health and has influenced the way we think about and treat mental illness. Dr. Gabor's co-author is his son Daniel Maté, who was an acclaimed composer, lyricist and playwright amongst many other accomplishments.Together, they host workshops and help so many people. In this fantastically thought provoking and timely book, they draw your attention to the role that social and environmental factors play in mental health. This book shares extensive evidence detailing how the problems so many of us face are not individual, but a natural consequence of a broken culture and unattended psychic wounds. I have more compassion for myself and everyone else after reading this incredible book, and I can't wait to discuss it further with these two heroes who wrote it.

NEW YEAR SPECIAL: Is psychedelic assisted therapy the future of mental health with Dr Brent Turnipseed

NEW YEAR SPECIAL: Is psychedelic assisted therapy the future of mental health with Dr Brent Turnipseed
On today's show, I am interviewing Dr. Brent Turnipseed. He is the co-founder of Roots Behavioural Health, with the initial goal of making psychiatric care more accessible to Central Texans and he also serves as their medical director. Dr Brent is a board certified psychiatrist with a deep interest into innovative approaches to providing behavioral health care through the forms of psychedelic assisted psychotherapy. Dr. Turnipseed co-authored the first observational study for ketamine assisted psychotherapy and this is what today's interview is about - the science and research behind ketamine assisted psychotherapy.So is this the future of mental health care? Should we be cautious about it? What can we expect from ketamine therapy in the future? Who is it right for? And many more questions I have had brewing, waiting to interview such a pioneering figure in the field. I think we would all agree mental health care is problematic. The solutions are not currently working in their format that they are available right now. So I'm really excited that there are new options becoming more widely available and helping us all towards living a healthier and happier life.Find more information on Dr Brent Turnipseed:Website: https://rootsbehavioralhealth.com/Follow Poppy:Instagram: @poppyjamieWe'd love to hear your thoughts on this episode, please email contact@notperfectpodcast.comProduced by Georgie RutherfordEdited by George Drake Hosted on Acast.

142: How to revolutionise your sleep with Professor Russell Foster
On today's show, I have the absolutely magnificent Professor. Russell Foster, who is one of the world's leading sleep and body clock doctors in the world. Professor Russell is a professor of circadian neuroscience at Oxford, and he has just written a true gift of a book that combines his decades of research and teaching to create a practical, easy to read, deeply informative book called Life Time: The New Science of the Body Clock and How It Can Revolutionise Your Sleep and Health. Perhaps the most surprising part of the book is that Professor Foster says there is no 'one size fits all' in terms of sleep. It's not helpful to think that everyone should be aiming for eight hours sleep a night, for example, or even that the holy grail is to sleep right through the night without waking up. In this episode, he explains sleep that you need is linked to your genetics and environment and can change over the course of your life. It's such a fascinating conversation and I can't wait for you all to hear it!

140: Will Pearson on managing mental health while building Ocean Bottle
On today's show, I am interviewing Will Pearson, the co-founder and co-CEO of Ocean Bottle, a truly phenomenal entrepreneur who was named one of Forbes 30 Under 30, and one of Norway's top ten leaders under 30 for his work towards the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals. After completing an engineering degree, Will spent a year working at sea in the Indian Ocean, where he experienced firsthand the effects of pollution on the ocean. His belief is that everybody should have the right to a clean environment and that business has a fundamental role to play in solving the challenges it has created. With experience in environmental impact and business strategy, Will has nurtured an obsession to create products and services that give more to the world and environment than they take from it. This led to the development of Ocean Bottle in 2018, a social impact brand with a mission to prevent 7 billion plastic bottles. In this episode, I spoke to Will about the highs and lows of creating a company and how his relationship with his mental health has changed over the years.

139: Are you sacrificing your happiness? with Raj Raghunathan
On today's podcast, I have the brilliant bestselling author of If You're So Smart, Why Aren't You Happy?. This book is a really juicy one and brings up a lot of food for thought that I think will resonate with a lot of you listeners. So I'm looking forward to speaking with Raj Raghunathan today. Raj earned his PhD from the Stern School of Business at New York University and is currently employed as a professor of marketing at the McCombs School of Business, the University of Texas at Austin. Raj's work juxtaposes theories from psychology, behavioural science, decision theory and marketing to document and explain intimate relationships.Raj wrote his book as a result of discovering that many of the smartest, brightest, most successful people were profoundly unhappy. Raj set out to find an answer to this problem, and extensively researched happiness not just of students and business people, but also stay-at-home-parents, lawyers, and artists, among others. His research is fascinating and I can't wait for you to hear his wisdom on the podcast!Find Raj:Website: https://www.mccombs.utexas.edu/faculty-and-research/faculty-directory/rajagopal-raghunathan/Book: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Youre-Smart-Why-Arent-Happy/dp/1101980737Follow Poppy:Instagram: @poppyjamieWe'd love to hear your thoughts on this episode, please email contact@notperfectpodcast.comProduced by Georgie RutherfordEdited by George Drake Hosted on Acast.

137: What you might not know about food with Professor Tim Spector
My guest this week is an absolute hero and legend in the medicine and nutrition world. I'm talking to Professor Tim Spector, who is a professor of genetic epidemiology at King's College London, Director of the Twins UK study and one of the world's leading researchers in gut microbiome.Professor Tim Spector is the Director of the British Gut Project and his research has transformed our knowledge of food and health. He's also the author of two books, The Diet Myth and Spoon Fed: Why Everything You Know About Food is Wrong. The amount he's done for furthering the understanding of health is so phenomenal. He could have already retired and never lifted a pen again. So that's why his new book is quite groundbreaking. It's called Food Is Life and his latest research is beyond excellent. I have never read a more comprehensive guide on the truth behind our food. His new book is really a food Bible, if you will. It discusses absolutely everything and looks into the research behind these claims. I highly recommend it!Find more information on Professor Tim Spector:Website: https://tim-spector.co.uk/Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/tim.spector/?hl=en-gb Books: https://tim-spector.co.uk/tim-spector-books/Follow Poppy:Instagram: @poppyjamieWe'd love to hear your thoughts on this episode, please email contact@notperfectpodcast.comProduced by Georgie RutherfordEdited by George Drake Hosted on Acast.

On today's episode, my guest is the awe inspiring Meik Wiking. Meik founded the world's first Happiness Research Institute in 2013 in Copenhagen to better understand the impacts on human happiness, inform policymakers and ultimately improve overall quality of life for citizens across the world. The research combines qualitative and quantitative methods, studying thousands of people from multiple countries to provide insights on the level of well-being, happiness and quality of life.

As we're spending more time in our homes it's important that we realise the huge impact and influence it has over the way we feel.
