The Power of Telly!
After my TV appearance yesterday on Channel 4's, Steph's Packed Lunch Show, my new book 'Neuron' sold out and briefly nudged into the Amazon Bestseller list
(Update May 13th: the book has in fact now sold out TWICE but please keep placing your orders and we'll get it to you as soon as possible!)
NEURON is now available!
The 2nd book in my 'Health Trilogy' featured by
My new book reveals why decades of diet and fitness trends, their billion dollar advertising campaigns, and prescription medications, failed to produce healthy nations
It also shows you exactly how to use Smart Wellness techniques (also known as 'biohacks') to shortcut your way to a healthier, longer life and slow down your ageing process
I was first introduced to these techniques in 1991 while a guest at a US Naval base in California. It astounds me that these simple techniques still aren't common knowledge outside of the elite military and sports worlds. These habits and hacks are the shortcut to lifelong good health and I'm going to show you how to easily learn the secret of Smart Wellness.
The Sun newspaper recently summarised 10 of my daily Smart Wellness habits to provide a quick and easy glimpse of the science and insights in my new book
I joined Phil Williams on his Times Radio show to talk about my new book, my 30 year biohacking journey and why everyone should embed these easy smart wellness habits for life. Interview runs from 1:36 until 1:59 mins
WE'VE GONE GLOBAL!
Media around the world are now picking up on the news of this Smart Wellness movement that is rapidly gathering momentum since the launch of my new book in April 2021
Stop wasting your time using outdated health practices
The new era of wellness has arrived and it's SMART
The diet and exercise recommendations that have been promoted to us for many decades failed to produce healthy nations and there are scientific reasons for that. I detail them in my new book and expain why staying well and avoiding illness is easier than we've been led to believe. It doesn't require a gym or restrictive diets.
We have incredible biological systems in our brain and body that have evolved over millions of years to keep us alive and well. But our modern world is messing them up.
My new book documents a 12-month experiment I ran on my brain and body, cancelling my gym membership, and purely using Smart Wellness techniques, habits, and tech wearables.
The Smart Wellness approach helps you enjoy better health, with less effort, by using simple natural, hacks (efficient shortcuts), basic science and tech devices to boost and optimise your ancient biology.
During this experiment my weight, strength, sleep quality, focus, and more, returned to levels I hadn't experienced since my 20s (I'm now in my 50s). I'll be continuing to use Smart Wellness habits forever and I'll use the money I saved from cancelling my gym membership to test my gut microbiome each year to stay on track.
TV host - Steph McGovern, Strictly Come Dancing Star - Oti Mabuse, and former UK Government Secretary of State for Business/Innovation/Skills - Vince Cable, get stuck into my drum session to boost beneficial brain chemicals and build healthy new brain connections
A drum kit is optional. We simply used wooden spoons!
Drum lessons are proven to be an exceptional workout for your brain and help prevent cognitive decline
This may surprise you but it turns out that most fitness instructors, regular gym users, and exercise class participants, are probably not actually achieving true all-round wellness
Consequently, their internal health continues to decline un-noticed until a visible symptom becomes apparent much later on. Often driven by INFLAMMATION that we now know to be the underlying cause of most of our chronic diseases
We need to rapidly update the way we approach health, using the new science insights, technology, and biological tests that are now easily available and affordable
Lifelong WELLNESS is what we all want
Fitness is not wellness
If, like me, you simply want to stay well and avoid deteriorating down into illness, you don't need a gym membership, workout gear or exercise classes
I'll show you the simple way to achieve that base goal using a Smart Wellness approach that requires minimal time and effort and addresses all aspects of health
In March 2021, my survey of 200 people revealed that over 80% of them do not feel in control of their health.
We need to rapidly change and update the information and recommendations we are giving people. The old approach does not work.

FOR URBAN DEVELOPMENTS
In 2021, the holistic wellness strategy I created for London's new £5 billion urban development was announced by leading urban developer, Argent Related. This strategy harnesses music and sound to deliver a wide range of wellness benefits for those who will live, work and visit Brent Cross Town.
It will embrace music, the sounds of nature, and the sound of silence, across the 180-acre estate. This is the first time that such a detailed consideration of sound and music has been used for wellness in a large-scale urban development. I hope this approach will become the norm in developments.

NHS DEMENTIA VILLAGE
My PhD research examined the lifelong impact of music from our youth. Those early memories of our school days are deep, strong and long lasting. This work led to my involvement with the NHS' first dementia village (opening 2021/22). I'm helping the NHS ensure that music and sound are at the heart of the care experience for residents of the UK's first dementia village and at hospitals. We're also exploring the use of cutting edge tech that will be used in the delivery.
HOUSE OF LORDS
In 2019, I joined forces with Lord Tim Clement-Jones and Sound Diplomacy to spearhead an inquiry at the House of Lords, called 'Music in Society'. The objective - to remind decision makers of the fact that music is 'entertaining', but is much more than 'entertainment'. It delivers a much greater range of benefits throughout life when we let it. I firmly believe that music is the most under-recognised, under-valued asset in the world. Most of my work of the past 30 years has focused on championing this fact.
Julia regularly presents her work at conferences worldwide.
Pictured here at the United Nations World Urban Forum in Kuala Lumpur. Spreading the word about the role of music in public health with Shain Shapiro (CEO, Sound Diplomacy), Aubrey & Michelle Preston (Owner, RCA Studio, Nashville) and Rachel Meir (CEO, Found in Music)
A few years ago, I wrote and recorded a song called 'Seaside Death' to draw attention to a proposed licensing policy that would have had detrimental effects on my local town's evening economy businesses, music venues and youth population.
The song now lives on because I'm pleased to announce that it's been chosen as the soundtrack of the forthcoming crime comedy movie Dan Hawk Psychic Detective, out in 2021.

PHOTO SHOOT & BOOK
Rankin has photographed many of my favourite music heroes so it was a huge thrill to be featured as one of the wellness experts in the Let's Reset book.
The book is a collaboration between Rankin & serial entrepreneur and wellness champion, Suki Thompson. It is a beautiful coffee table book of inspiration that tells the wellbeing and resilience stories of 82 leaders, experts and entrepreneurs.
