The Goodness Lover Show

The Goodness Lover Show is created with one mission in mind: to create a community of people who want to learn how to better care for themselves, others, and our planet. Each episode is your direct line to world-renowned doctors and medical specialists, who often have very long queues just to get booked for one consultation!

Hosted by husband and wife (and health & wellness nerds!) Sarah and Matt, we interview one expert each week in the fields of functional, integrative, naturopathy, and holistic medicine. You’ll find out the science behind your health conditions, the practical steps you can take to address your symptoms, and the stories of patients who are now living much, much healthier lives.
