#39, Health is Wealth w/ Rhian Stephenson, Founder of Artah and former CEO of Psycle

Rhian Stephenson is a nutritional therapist, naturopath and founder of ARTAH - a brand of natural supplements with science backed ingredients that help support skin, gut health, hormone balance, sleep, stress and mood.

She knows first hand the impact ill health has on the body. She was a very sickly child, but once the root cause of her illness was discovered, this breakthrough changed her life forever.

You might remember the early days of Psycle back in 2014. She was its first CEO of the London branch redefining the fitness industry into something we do for fun.

In Episode 39 we talk about Rhian’s own health journey, what inspired ARTAH, the exclusion diet, cycle synching, pregnancy, how an optimal diet is different for men and women, and so much more.

This is a conversation, I will be rewatching many times to make sure it all sinks in.
