She’s guided hundreds of women through her eCourse, “Shiny Healthy You – Fatigued to Fabulous in 12 Weeks,” and also sees clients individually. Her podcast gets thousands of downloads every month.
When she’s not helping her tribe to become healthy, Jules can be found surfing, hanging out with her husband and their elderly rescue dogs, or walking the famous Byron Bay lighthouse track.

This week we have our first interview with a guest on the show for a 2nd time.

Dr Damian Kristof’s Bio:
I’ve been in the health industry now for more than 20 years in many different capacities. As a Naturopath, Nutritionist and Chiropractor I have enjoyed helping thousands of people regain health and vitality through natural approaches. I am continually excited and delighted by the life changes that people experience when they start to trust in their own ability to heal without excessive intervention.
Naturopathic and Chiropractic
My path through health has been exciting and varied, and at the same time very challenging and rewarding. I love the ability to interact on a one on one basis daily with my practice members and at the same time, I love the ability to educate and inspire people to change through multi media including Radio (Melbourne’s Triple M), TV (Downsize Me, Inside New Zealand, Brian and Bobby, The Exchange) Podcasting (The Wellness Guys and 100 Not Out) and of course in a seminar setting with The Power Of Food and Crack Your Stress Code events. My belief is that both the nervous system and the gastro-intestinal system are both equally influential in the health and longevity of the individual, this is why I love chiropractic (as it deals with the nervous system) and I developed Forage Cereal (to assist the restoration of impeccable health to the gastrointestinal system).
Having combined the philosophies of both Naturopathic and Chiropractic approaches to healing and well-being – I believe that people learn and achieve the most when there is no interference and there is appropriate supply of goodness to allow the body to thrive.

Yuz Rozenblum’s Bio:
I live in Melbourne Australia & am in my late 30’s. I have a degree in Marketing & spent over ten years in the advertising industry at various agencies working in account management & now contract as a social media manager. I’ve been married for nine years to a wonderful man (& father) who’s a game developer & a mother to mother to two children, Orli aged eight (in a few weeks) & Flynn who’s five.
PND is not forever
Both of our Orli was born, I suffered with severe PND/PPD that saw me being admitted to a parent infant psych facility (nuthouse) when she was eight weeks old & we stayed there for three weeks. Orli & I spent the first year of her life in therapy & at weekly attendances at the nuthouse.
My husband & I decided to have another baby when Orli was about 20 months & I ended up having a medically complicated pregnancy where our baby had an 20% chance of survival. I had a bi-partite placenta, placenta previa & vasa previa& gave birth who presented back at hospital being ‘failure to thrive’. We were readmitted to hospital & we remained there for nine weeks where he was diagnosed with Laryngomalacia (floppy airway at the level of the Larynx) & reflux which he’s still being treated for over five years later.
Motherhood & parenthood has not only challenged me but also rewarded me with some wonderful friends & a non-judgmental & understanding ‘village’.
I hope my story helps mothers out there know that PND is not forever; help is out there & you will get through this.
“This is not forever.”
