A multidisciplinary approach in cancer care is a positive and empowering experience where people can choose what they would like to be doing. Every tool and approach adds on to synergistically provide better support. This is what my guest, Dr Catherine Zollman, GP, medical director of Penny Brohn UK cancer charity, firmly believes in.


Catherine trained to registrar level in Medical Oncology before qualifying as a GP in 1995. She completed a Fellowship in Integrative Medicine at University of Arizona in 2010 and works part-time as an NHS GP and as GP Cancer Lead for the local Clinical Commissioning Group.


Today we talk about:

  • The next generation of lifestyle medicine practitioners
  • General principles of an anti-cancer diet
  • Medical tests informing not directing treatment
  • The rainbow of exercises and why moving has anti-cancer benefits
  • Building resilience and how for some people, cancer is an opportunity to start thinking about what makes their life richer.


Plus a special guest appearance from Catherine’s son, Luke and his friend Louis who were helping out during the conference and are fans of the podcast who wanted to say hi!

#165 Your Daily Reset with Dr Steven MacGregor

🎬 Watch the podcast on YouTube here📱 Download The Doctor’s Kitchen app for freeI love a nudge and I love a framework. It appeals to my analytical mind, and as someone who loves checklists, finding a book with short daily nudges toward improved mindset, performance and purpose was gold. Author of “The Daily Reset” is Dr. Steven MacGregor, Honorary Professor of Health and Wellbeing at the Glasgow School of Art and external advisor for McKinsey & Company. He has helped improve the workplace health and sustainable leadership of tens of thousands of professionals worldwide at organisations such as Salesforce, Santander, and Telefónica.Workplace wellbeing might seem like a soft term or a tickbox exercise for corporates, but I think in the context of shifting workplace environments as a result of the pandemic and the fact that we spend at least a third of our week at work, it’s important to discuss on the podcast.Today we talk about:Workplace ‘Wellness’ vs ‘Wellbeing’What we can learn from athletes about daily habitsThe importance of having chief wellbeing officers and design thinkingHow we encourage ‘shower thoughts’Embracing boredomThe stockdale paradoxDopamine FastingIrigoyen’s dailyThe stress equationWhy we need to embrace boredomYou can download The Doctor’s Kitchen app for free to get access to all of our recipes, with specific suggestions tailored to your health needs and new recipes added every month.

#164 Creating the Causes of Health with Lord Nigel Crisp

🎬 Watch the podcast on YouTube here📱 Download The Doctor’s Kitchen app for freeMy guest today used to run the NHS. Lord Nigel Crisp was Chief Executive of the English NHS and Permanent Secretary of the UK Department of Health from 2000-2006.He now works and writes mainly on global health with a focus on Africa. Lord Crisp is a Senior Fellow at the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, an Honorary Professor at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and a Foreign Associate of the US National Academy of Medicine. He was formerly a Distinguished Visiting Fellow at the Harvard School of Public Health and Regent’s Lecturer at Berkeley.His current focus is on creating health and promoting the causes of health. Having worked in the NHS for over 20 years, the last 10 have been spent in Africa and India which has led him to think differently about health and well-being and health systems and public services more generally. Nigel believes organisations must all play their part in building a society and environment where communities and individuals can thrive and flourish. This goes far beyond the reach of the NHS and government and everyone has a role to play.We have a fascinating conversation about:Developing the health workforceWhy a salutogenic approach to health is keyWhat we can learn from developing nations with far less budgetThe ideas of how interconnected and interdependent we are in health globally, just as we are in every other area of our lives.This is a concept really brought to life with the most recent pandemic, but something that Lord Nigel has been writing and talking about for years.His latest book, Turning the World Upside Down Again – global health in a time of pandemics, climate change and political turmoil is a fascinating read and one I hope many policymakers will read and put into action.You can download The Doctor’s Kitchen app for free to get access to all of our recipes, with specific suggestions tailored to your health needs and new recipes added every month.

#163 Fasting as a Medical Tool for Longevity with Dr Elizabeth Thompson & Prof Valter Longo

🎬 Watch the podcast on YouTube here📱 Download The Doctor’s Kitchen app for freeFasting as a tool for health is becoming a popular question whenever I do live talks. The interest in fasting is huge. We’ve done a dive into fasting with previous guests on the podcast, check them out on www.thedoctorskitchen.com/podcasts  And today, I talk to Professor Valter Longo and Dr Elizabeth Thompson about fasting as a tool in diabetes and even to support cancer patients during chemotherapy.We’ve had Professor Longo on the pod before, introducing what fasting means and how it works, so if you want more of an explanation into Fasting Mimicking Diets, FMD, make sure you listen to that episode first. We also dive into Dr Thompson’s own experience with fasting, the new data from Valter’s lab and others since we last spoke, the long-term effects, drawbacks and implementation. Remember, fasting is still an emerging therapeutic tool, so please exercise caution when trying these techniques and if possible do it with the guidance of a practitioner.Dr Elizabeth Thompson is a very experienced medical doctor having trained in medicine at Oxford University and completed her clinical training at Guy’s Hospital in London. She’s also the Chief Executive of the National Centre for Integrative Medicine. She is also an experienced Medical Homeopath specialising in women’s health including the menopause and supporting the health and wellbeing of cancer patients.Dr. Valter Longo is a Professor of Gerontology and Biological Sciences and Director of the Longevity Institute at the University of Southern California - one of the leading centres for research on ageing and age-related disease.The Longo laboratory published key findings on the 5 day periodic dietary intervention called Fasting Mimicking Diet (FMD), and showed in randomised clinical trials that FMD reduces the risk factors and markers associated with ageing and diseases. Dr. Longo’s most recent studies focus on the use of FMD interventions to activate stem cell- based regeneration to promote longevity.Professor Longo’s core objectives are to offer treatment and other health services to patients with serious diseases and to achieve these goals, Professor Longo devolves all profits from his books and FMD products to research and programs via his foundations.Today we talk aboutDr Elizabeth Thompson’s personal experience with fastingRecent findings on periodic fasting in cancerWhy fasting needs to be standardisedThe drawbacks of fasting and why it isn’t a miracle cureThe long-term effects of periodic fastingWhy the implementation of fasting may be easier than you thinkProtein & longevity – Are we eating too much protein?Check out the recipes and app here: https://apple.co/37PvMMXJoin the newsletter and 7 day meal plan here: https://thedoctorskitchen.com/newsletter/Check out the socials here: https://www.instagram.com/doctors_kitchen/
