Sound Living BSLM Podcast

The British Society of Lifestyle Medicine is excited to bring you our brand new podcast! The internet is swamped with the latest health trends and confusing information. We are dedicated to bringing you reliable information based on facts and research.

In this podcast you can expect exclusive interviews with doctors and other health experts from around the world, covering a range of topics, including nutrition, physical activity, sleep and stress, addressing your health and wellbeing needs and inspiring you to take action!

First, we are starting with a special pandemic podcast series, hosted by one of our very own Regional Directors, NHS GP and TV presenter Dr Helen Lawal. The pandemic series focuses on how you can stay physically and mentally well, during lockdown and as lockdown eases, adjusting to a new way of life and the “new normal”.


Sound Living Episode 1: Introducing the BSLM and Lifestyle Medicine

What is Lifestyle Medicine? In the first episode of Sound Living, Dr Helen Lawal is joined by Dr Rob Lawson. Rob is a former GP and cofounder of the British Society of Lifestyle Medicine. In this episode, Rob explains why he founded the BSLM and why our lifestyle is more important now than ever. He also explains what lifestyle medicine actually is, what group consultations are, and how small changes can have a big impact on our health.


Sound Living Episode 2: Pregnancy: Mental health, exercise, sleep and lockdown

In this episode about pregnancy Helen interviews Dr Julie Gray. Julie is an NHS GP, BSLM regional director, and currently 35 weeks pregnant. Helen is bringing up a new-born baby in lockdown.

The pair share their experience as mums and explore: benefits of exercise in pregnancy and what precautions to take; how to maintain good emotional wellbeing and mental health during pregnancy; and practical tips to improve sleep both during and outside of pregnancy.
