Welcome back for Part 2 of my discussion with Dr. Sam Slattery, author of The Body Cooperative. Hubby & I have know Dr. Sam fr over a decade. He was a big part of our medical team when we lived in Turks & Caicos, and has always been a science-based, no nonsense, and very caring kind of guy.
We continue our talk about the essential elements of human health, weight, nutrition, exercise, stress, and sleep. In this episode, we talk a bit more about exercise, the problems with sugar, how we've been lied to about health and wellness, and why our gut biome is so important.
I think you'll find that his approach makes a lot of sense, and is easy to implement.

Dr. Sam Slattery is a highly respected and trusted physician with over 40 years experience on the front line of medical care. A practical and pragmatic doctor, he is recognized for translating his extensive knowledge into a caring and empathetic approach to helping individuals achieve their best health.
Trained in medicine and surgery at St Thomas’s Hospital, London, qualifying in 1984, Dr. Sam has a fundamental belief that all things are connected and that the human body must be viewed form the perspective of an ecosystem, a collective rather than separate parts and systems. The result of this line of thinking made him one of the earlier proponents of the biopsychosocial medical model.
His approach is supported by the science of psychoneuroimmunology, and his knowledge of immunology, neurology and psychology is extensive. These disciplines are all connected in the gut and through the gut-brain access. His new book, The Body Cooperative presents a novel and ground breaking approach to managing health.
Most recently he has been working in the NHS as an Associate Specialist in Gastroenterology with a specific interest in functional bowel disorders including functional chest pain and globus.
Not only has he had an interesting career in medicine working across a broad range of specialities and championing functional and wholistic approaches to the care of patients, but he is also an experienced large and small boat sailor and pilot flying many different aircraft including jets and gliders. In addition to his medical degree, he holds Masters degrees in Aviation Safety Systems and Human Factors, and Gastroenterology and Nutrition.
