Peter Dingle BEd, BSc, Hons, PhD, WASM
Nobody knows health and wellness like Dr Peter Dingle, Australia’s most engaging and innovative thought leader on the topics of health, wellness and the environment.
“Dr Dingle has spent the past 30 years as a researcher, educator, communicator and author. Formerly an associate professor at Murdoch University, Dr D has written 17 books on living well.
Blending motivation and humour, Dr Dingle regularly appears on state and national media. He was the presenter on the award-winning SBS program, “Is Your House Killing You?” and appeared regularly on ABC’s “Can We Help?” Dr Dingle is also the grandfather of the acclaimed “Living Smart” program.
One of the most informative and entertaining health speakers in Australia, Dr Dingle helps cut through medical and health myths to give you the real facts on evidence-based wellness. He presents cutting-edge research findings in an accessible, down-to-earth manner—and is known for his straight-shooting style, sense of humour and the occasional magic trick or juggling display.
Dr D, who gives about 100 presentations in Australia and around the world each year, will show you how you can regain your health and even reverse many chronic health conditions including cardiovascular disease and diabetes. He explains how to unlock your genes for wellness, and how to take personal responsibility for your wellbeing.
We now recognise that your gut microbiome has a large influence on your health, from allergies to Alzheimer’s and cancer and cardiovascular disease. It influences all aspects of our health including our mental wellbeing. However, we are only just now beginning to understand what a healthy gut is and how many of the things in our lives can play havoc with our gut and our health. Antibiotics, over the counter medications, cleaning products and even your make up and personal care products are just some of the new findings that can devastate a healthy gut microbiome. Only in the last 5 years have we realised that many of the so called safe food additives like the emulsifiers can also impact your microbiome while stressful event and emotional ups and downs can turn a healthy gut into a sick one.
