Doc­tor spreads health mes­sage

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

MONTO’S Melissa Dowl­ing joined forces with mo­ti­va­tional health speaker Dr Peter Din­gle on Sun­day, in a cam­paign to get peo­ple in­spired about be­ing healthy.

“I saw Dr Din­gle speak in Biloela last year and it well and truly changed my life­style, so I knew I had to get him to come spread his mes­sage in Monto,” she said.

The whole-of-life ap­proach and a colour­ful de­liv­ery method shakes up Dr Din­gle’s mes­sage from any­thing run-of-the-mill.

He be­lieves grat­i­tude, med­i­ta­tion, healthy choices and com­mon sense are all just as im­por­tant as ex­er­cise and nu­tri­tion in liv­ing a healthy life.

But when it does come to diet, the su­per­foods Dr Din­gle swears by are vegeta­bles, fruits, nuts and seeds, with beet­root be­ing the nu­tri­tional holy grail.

Mrs Dowl­ing said her hus­band Scott has even taken Dr Din­gle’s ad­vice when it came to farm­ing choices.

“He ex­plains how bad tox­ins are for you, they de­stroy your or­gans and are stored as fat, so we are spray­ing with trace min­er­als like zinc now,” she said.

But it is Mrs Dowl­ing’s com­mit­ment to grat­i­tude and med­i­ta­tion that has had the big­gest ef­fect on her life.
