The team at SynxBody love podcasts and discovering new people to follow and draw inspiration from, particularly if they are health and wellness related or can help motivate us to lead a healthier and happier life, both physically and mentally.
Here are 5 of our favourite health and wellness podcasts.1. Hurdle
Emily Abbate is a health writer and coach, but she hasn’t always been a health and wellness champion. She used to be overweight and has transformed her life, thanks largely in part to running. Hurdle has a twice-weekly podcast where Emily shares fitness tips that have helped her throughout her journey, and she interviews people who have overcome hurdles with healthy living. Hurdle is a fantastic podcast filled with great tips, lessons and insights for living a healthier and more active life.
2. Dishing up Nutrition
The Dishing Up Nutrition podcast features nutritionists and dieticians who explore the connection between what we eat and how we feel. They share practical tips for living a healthier life, current trends in food and diet, cooking tips and new research. It’s a great podcast to listen to if you’re in a bit of a food-rut or want to learn more about how the food you eat can impact your health, mood and relationships.
3. The Doctor’s Farmacy
Mark Hyman is a doctor who is leading the health revolution by using food as medicine and highlighting the importance of functional medicine for increased longevity, health and happiness in a way that makes sense and is easy to maintain.

4. Chasing Excellence

This podcast changes the way you think about your body’s capabilities.
