Mindfulness with John Sanei

Wellness can actually be quite a complex thing, with many factors affecting it… and not all of them are necessarily physical. Our mindset and mental perspective have a big influence on how we cope with day to day stresses and challenges. 
In this episode, we speak to someone who has an uncanny ability to see things differently - and who can show us a unique view on the world, that might just make everything feel better.
 John Sanei is an author, speaker and future strategist who has some interesting thoughts on the world, especially what is happening right now - and where humanity might be headed. Brought to you by Cipla.

Chronic Constipation with Professor Mashiko Setshedi

Something that most of us would have experienced at some point is constipation, but for some people it is actually a chronic condition that can affect their daily lives. It's not something that is easy to live with, or talk about - but there are ways to manage and treat it, so that is what we discuss on Health Matters this week with Professor Mashiko Setshedi, Head of Medical Gastroenterology at Groote Schuur Hospital.

Covid-19 Vaccines with Dr Jeremy Nel

It’s the most controversial discussion topic in the world. People everywhere are asking, “Have you done it yet?” and, “Which one did you get?”. Your friends, family and colleagues are proudly declaring that they’ve done it, and berating those who don’t want to do it! Of course we're talking about the Covid-19 vaccine and in this episode of Health Matters, Ryan O'Connor gets some facts from someone who really knows what he’s talking about. Dr Jeremy Nel is Head of the Infectious Diseases division at Helen Joseph Hospital and Wits University.
