Show Notes

Kim interviews Kirsty Wirth from Kultured Wellness and Cyndi O’Meara from Changing Habits after they return from their very successful trip to the Solomon Islands. It’s a wake up call for both business owners. They speak at the University in Honiara, to the Ministry of Health, the Hospital and take time out to go to an island to meet the locals that are living a fairly traditional life. Diabetes in adults and wasting disease in children is the current health crisis. The trend for the past 20 years has been away from the traditional diet and consuming more and more rice and sugar products. For children with wasting disease a ready to use therapeutic food (RUTL) is available for 6 months and above made from hydrogenated vegetable oils, sugar, peanuts and other dubious ingredients. Listen in on their incredible journey and how they are instigating a change back to traditional ways along with Kokonut Pacific – a local virgin oil producer.
