Introducing Dr Saul Konviser BDS MSc BSc! Saul is a lead general dentist at the Montagu Dental practice - we discuss dental health, how to it can affect your overall health and some practical tips on how to improve and maintain good oral health. We put a spotlight on sugar, jaw clenching, drinks, food and even the mental health effects of poor dental health plus much more.
In additional to Saul's interest in functional dentistry, he has developed a special interest in the area of sports dentistry given his passion for sport himself. This allows him to work closely with both professional and amateur sportspeople, helping them understand the importance of oral health on their sporting performance and general health.
Something which has interested me for a long time is the link between dental health and chronic diseases. Therefore, the benefits of looking after your teeth and your oral health may not only be localised to your mouth but your entire body.

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.
