“We’ve got some really great innovations in science and medicine at the moment and I think working together is incredible” – Bianca Markovic, Bachelor of Health Science (Naturopathy)
Despite scepticism, naturopaths are the largest group of alternative medicine practitioners in Australia. Using nature to help find cures for symptoms, people who use the method face a lot of controversy. To get to the root of naturopathy, Bachelor of Health Science (Naturopathy) student Bianca Markovic explains how it can help people and breaks the myths surrounding the practice. On the flip side of medicine, our favourite Medical guru Dr. Lane shares how complimentary therapies can work alongside western treatment to help patients.
Also on the show, you might’ve seen warnings all over Google and YouTube that how you use them could be under threat.

Meanwhile, we give a run down on what’s been happening in politics as well as fill you in on Coronavirus. To cheer you up early in the week, there’s also Heaps Good News. Tune in to stay updated!
