The Davinia Taylor Podcast- Hack Your Health

Underground Fan Club

Hi, I’m Davinia Taylor and this is my new podcast ‘Hack Your Health’, a show that will educate and empower you to lead a healthier and happier life.


14 years ago I couldn't stop drinking wine, the doctors put me on antidepressants, I couldn’t control my weight, I kept yo-yo dieting and eating fast food, bread, pasta, ANYTHING to give me comfort. Today, at 45 I’m running marathons and in the best shape of my life. So what changed?


One simple fact, everything i thought i knew about health was wrong and if I was mis-informed, then I bet most of you are too.


Join me as I talk to some of the worlds biggest experts in health and bio-hacking including; Tim Spector, Gary Brecka, Dr Barbara Sturm, Dr Cate Shanahan, Dave Asprey, Dr Tamsin Lewis, Pippa Campbell, Dr Ken Berry and the Glucose Goddess.


Now…let’s go hack your health.
