Empowering your health with Dr Amy Carmichael.png

Dr Amy Carmichael is a medical doctor with a passion for holistic health and wellbeing. In 2014 an accident led to a massive realisation that she'd been neglecting her body and putting endless amounts of pressure and stress on herself. This wake-up call changed the trajectory of her life…forever.

She now runs her own online integrative medical clinic and helps individuals all around the world achieve optimal health, happiness and harmony, by looking at a patient as a whole person - NOT just as a set of symptoms.

In this episode of Truth Talks we explore everything from the impacts of stress on our health, hormonal imbalances, the future of medicine and why there is so much we can learn from the Eastern cultures.

When we have constant stress in our lives, our body never gets the opportunity to reset.
