Dr Rosy Daniel trained as a General Practitioner in Bristol. The illness of a close friend that was strongly influenced by the friend’s emotional state led to her interest in the mind-body connection. In 1985 she joined the Bristol Cancer Help Centre where she studied complementary medicine and psychological and self-help approaches. Moved by the phenomenal self-healing journeys she witnessed at Bristol, she was inspired to write her first book Loving Medicine.
In this episode, we talk about the emotional elements that are so often neglected in our everyday lives, how stress can negatively impact healing from disease and the science behind the mind-body connection.

Prior to the birth of her daughter, Jo was practising as a behavioural therapist, specialising in children with autism and complex learning and behavioural difficulties.
When her daughter became ill at just 19 months old, life would never quite be the same again. She was diagnosed with her first autoimmune disease which developed into multiple autoimmune diseases and required a four-year chemotherapy regime to suppress her immune system at just 3 years old.
Jo began digging deep into her daughter's condition, leaving no stone unturned. She pursued nutritional therapy, training in Functional Medicine with the Institute for Functional Medicine and completed training to become a fellow in integrative cancer therapy.
In this episode, we discuss how functional medicine can best support cancer patients and the uses of nutrition at any stage of cancer.
