Episode 26: Is the “Wellness” Industry Just Diet Culture in Disguise with Dr. Nikki Stamp

by Podcast

The “Wellness” industry comes across as having good intentions because it promotes healthy superfood powders, new exercise regimes, and various products to get you feeling your “best self”.

However, at it’s core, the “wellness” industry is usually just diet and weight loss culture in disguise.

Many of today’s current wellness trends and routines are often scientifically unproven, and more alarmingly, promoted by influencers who have no qualifications to support claims they are making.

In today’s podcast, Dr. Nikki Stamp and I are going to be tackling this topic and deconstructing myth from fact when it comes to wellness, where to get your health information from, and the secrets to health that have nothing to do with the latest superfood.
