Welcome to our very first blog post.
The Soul Medics are a husband and wife team of General Practitioners in the UK who passionately believe in promoting health and wellness. We have over twenty years of medical experience between us, in both the NHS and in private health services.
Prevention is often better than the cure, and we want to help empower others to make choices that improve not only their physical health but their emotional wellbeing. Being well is not just about being on the right medications, although we know all too well that sometimes it is needed.
Tackling problems like inactivity, obesity and stress can seem daunting, especially on your own. We’re here to share our tips, thoughts and ideas on how we can all make those positive choices.
This is a journey we are on as well, so when we are talking about being more active, choosing healthier food options or trying to improve our general wellbeing – we’re living it too.
We woke up midway through 2016 and realised we had gained several stone of weight, our fitness levels were non-existent, we were working long hours and spending little time taking care of ourselves and each other.
So we decided to make a change.
We decided to really practice all those things we had spent years telling patients about. Our journey isn’t over and we would love for you to join us on it.
