Our body is communicating to us all the time but too often we don’t listen.
My guest today, Matthew Bate, spent a decade playing Australian Rules Football at the top level for the Melbourne Football Club. For many years he tried to mask what his body was trying to communicate to him by using pharmaceutical drugs, painkillers and sleeping pills, which transformed into an addiction.
Life now looks and feels very different for Matthew, as he has reconnected with his body through food.
This episode is about holistic health and how being healthy allows you to do the things you love with the people you love. Matthew and I talk about seasonal eating, fitness, and being aware of what we eat. Along with anxiety and stress, vulnerability, shame, following your heart, and dealing with the unknown with big life decisions.
Matthew is a wealth of knowledge when is comes to health and food and how our body responds to what we put into it.
