Clara has been interested in natural energy ever since she ran out of it in her early thirties when her son was young. Researching ways to rekindle her natural zest for life, Clara found a whole host of beneficial remedies and therapies in the alternative healing world. Diving into experiencing a range of treatments, some more successful than others, she wanted to find something she could do for her self.
Enter chi kung/qigong and meditation. After several years training and getting her health back on an even keel she was asked to share her knowledge in the adult eduction sector and at the turn of the millennium moved from north London to the New Forest, where the natural life force was so much easier to connect with.
Clara has been teaching chi kung and meditation since 2000 and gradually her health and energy, and that of her many students, has been restored to a level she can now trust. This is a moment to moment challenge, making awareness key to realising when, where, why, how and who saps energy (chi) and then consciously doing something about it. Interviewing the array of consciousness leaders for Chi Time has given her a wider experience of this arena, one she is continually learning with and from and happily shares with you on her show.
Clara is gradually working her way out of the mainstream melée, jumping ship from having her own home in 2014 to becoming a house sitter and experimenting with living in different countries in Europe. This choice freed up the need to earn a certain amount of money each month. A revolutionary act resulting in an evolutionary outlook. Yes it has been and still is quite a journey. Clara has found her personal chi kung and meditation practice is her ‘go to’ place, her inner home and now her quest is to become part of an Eco-community somewhere along the South Coast. She gets that this inner-self relationship is the key factor to support, inform and motivate her personal and also collective growth and development.
Chi Time = me time = no time like the present!
Clara now runs an expanding Conscious Living events company in Bournemouth bringing high calibre speakers and performers to the South Coast, many of whom appear on Chi Time.

“My specialty in sports medicine is orthotic therapy, combined with specific training & strengthening of the feet & ankles. I’ve been fortunate enough to have worked with some of the best athletes in all sports including many of the Super Bowl Bears back in the 80’s, tennis greats John McEnroe & Tracy Austin, & numerous Cubs & White Sox.
A true highlight of my career was watching Naperville’s hometown figure skater Evan Lysacek, who I first saw as a nine-year-old and put orthotics in his skates, win the 2010 Olympic Gold Medal for men’s figure skating with his orthotics (updated of course!) still in his boots. These high performance youngsters still remain my passion.
Another big interest of mine is the challenge of our country’s greatest epidemic: childhood obesity. I co-hosted a 45 episode podcast “Kids Beating Obesity” with Rick Osbourne, creator of Pull Your Own Weight, an innovative simple method, stressing PREVENTION. You can access episodes on website.”

Geeta Sidhu-Robb spends her life talking about health and wellness as CEO of Nosh Detox.
Although a corporate lawyer, she started working with health as a way to help heal her son from asthma, eczema and the constant threat of anaphylaxis from multiple food allergies. What she hadn’t realised was that all that healing knowledge would actually make her better too! So she set up multi-award winning Nosh Detox and offered that knowledge to others.
Having spent years working out natural ways to stay healthy, fit and mostly sane whilst being a single mother to 3 children and an entrepreneur she became fascinated by other peoples’ health choices. Particularly people who are busy, stressed, successful people.
That happily has created a wide, wide niche which enables Geeta to interview funny, interesting and successful guests and quiz them about their health choices and why their lives actually work. And what it takes from them to make it work.
Interspersed with this she gets to also have the most interesting and innovative health and alternative therapists as guests. Since she particularly hates talking to herself, over 95% of the show is guest and health expert based.
However needs must and from time to time, she does do shows where she talks about juice fasting, detoxing, nutrients, diets and other topics close to her heart.

Presenter John Fry
Having played football at school and in my teens, a serious injury changed my goal and I started working in finance. After the economic crash in 2008 again decided a further career change for me, I decided to focus more attention into coaching football which I had been doing on a part-time basis for a while. I obtained my football badges, learned about nutrition, fitness, the importance of healing from injuries and competition mindset. After finishing coaching my son’s team, I coached a girls football team for 3 1/2 years and during the last 3 years we won every league match and several Summer tournaments… I like to think the key was all that I had learned, dedication to the role and coaching them like footballers, nor girls and they were brilliant! I then decided to spend more time with my own children, so stopped coaching a team and set up a football school while getting more into media. I now find myself here at this amazing Radio Station being able to discuss topics that I love and interview inspirational people.

When Joni Aldrich found out her 43-year-old husband had cancer, she had no idea her life was about to change forever, too—that she would become the full-time caregiver of a critically ill husband fighting for his life. What followed were two years of intense treatments, including three stem cell transplants 800 miles away from their home. Tragically, the cancer invaded Gordon’s brain, and caregiving entered an even more difficult phase: caring for a brain illness patient. After Gordon died, Joni realized there were many lessons that they had learned that would be invaluable if shared with readers through writing and audiences through speaking. She knew that being cancer novices had resulted in errors in decisions and treatments that could have cost Gordon months…if not years…of his life. The books she would later write were the ones that she wanted the day that Gordon was diagnosed, and in the last days of his life when he was diagnosed with metastatic brain cancer.
Several years later, Joni suffered yet another cancer blow. Her 83-year-old mother was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer. As primary caregiver for an extremely ill cancer patient yet again, Joni was able to utilize her knowledge to give her mother peace in the final months of her life.
Joni’s personal mission includes six books full of practical strategies to survive cancer, caregiving, brain illness, and grief, including The Saving of Gordon: Lifelines to W-I-N Against Cancer; Connecting Through Compassion; Understanding With Compassion; and The Losing of Gordon: A Beacon Through the Storm Called “Grief” (available on Amazon, learn more at www.JoniAldrich.com).

Pete presents The ‘D’ Word the radio show that talks about dementia. Born in London he spent over 30 years in local government as a Chartered Environmental Health Practitioner while combining a part time career in sports radio. He spent two years seconded to the Health Protection Agency running a national partnership working project and was then appointed Head of Climate Change at Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council. His media CV includes presenting live sports commentaries for a number of TV and radio stations as well as writing regular articles for sports magazines. In 2013 he took up a post as news editor for an environmental website while running his own consultancy JigsawPSPH which provided social media coverage for Public Health events.
Pete admits his outlook on life changed in 2016 when he was appointed as Group Activity Support Manager for Essex by the Alzheimer’s Society. His duties involved managing six, weekly social groups for people living with dementia in the community. When the contract ended in 2018 Pete decided to combine his interest in dementia with his lifelong love of radio and start The ‘D’ Word as he was shocked that nobody had taken up the idea. He’s already got himself a reputation as the man with the travelling microphone who likes a chat and produces radio in his back bedroom. He hopes eventually to develop the show to include people living with dementia as a major part of the project. As he says “I want to stop it being the ‘D’ Word and let people talk freely about dementia as they would any other health condition.”
Peter’s passion for helping people with diabetes stems from 3 sources : his 30 years experience as a Podiatrist dealing with the devastating effects of the disease on people’s feet : his personal battle with Type 2 diabetes and his experience with his daughter’s diagnosis with type 1.
He and his wife Tina founded the multi award winning not for profit organisation Undefeeted whose mission is to help people with diabetes prevent foot complications and amputations by helping them live as safely as possible with their disease. Peter is the author of Undefeeted by Diabetes. He walks his talk having successfully reversed his Type 2 diabetes and remains off all his meds 1 year on.
PresenterPeter Allton & Dave James
Presenter Peter Allton
Peter qualified as a Podiatrist in 1988 and has worked in both the public and private sectors over the past 4 decades, treating in excess of 300,000 feet.
He currently is the Clinical director and Principal Podiatrist at the multi award winning Circle Podiatry which he founded in the mid 1990’s. Circle Podiatry has won numerous awards over the years but the one they are most proud to have been awarded was winning Best customer service at the 2017 FSB London business awards.
Peter is a published author of “Undefeeted by Diabetes” and has 2 Foot related passions, the first already being addressed by his other UK Health Radio show called The Diabetes Show aims to help people with diabetes live safely minimizing the chances of complications developing particularly with the feet that can lead all to often to amputation. The show supports the work of his not for profit organization Undefeeted which won the title of the UK’s Best not for profit at the 2018 SME Business awards.
His other passion is to help raise awareness of the importance of foot health in the general public in all age groups. He believes that all children should be assessed at least twice before their 12th birthday.
He states. “Generally people don’t place as much importance on their feet as they do their teeth or eyes and yet they are destined to carry them 5 times around the world – many complications with the feet and legs could be prevented if people were aware of what is normal rather than just assuming all is ok.”
“The most common thing I hear from my patients is – if only I had known earlier”
That’s why we have started the foot and leg show- to let you know what can go wrong, what to do and to know that the right person to see for any foot or leg problem is a Podiatrist.

The Yes to Life Show is presented by Robin Daly, Founder and Chairman of the UK registered charity Yes to Life. Robin set up Yes to Life more than a decade ago, following the experience of supporting his youngest daughter Bryony through cancer three times. The extraordinary difficulties he found that faced people in finding and obtaining the help they wanted, spurred him into creating a charity to make a difference to this tragic predicament.
Although very familiar with the territory, Robin is not a cancer specialist or any kind of health expert. In presenting the show, he is always looking for a ‘layman’s’ understanding of the complexities of cancer and the issues surrounding it that is accessible to all.

Vince MacNally – BVSc VetMFHom MRCVS
Holistic Veterinary Surgeon
I grew up surrounded by animals, and it was the tragic death of a much loved feline friend during childhood that inspired me to become a Vet.
This desire never wavered and in 1983 I graduated as a Vet from Liverpool University and went to work for the PDSA in Manchester, where I gained invaluable clinical experience treating a wide range of conditions in many different types of pet. I also developed a passion for orthopaedic surgery. Several months before I was due to sit the Certificate of Veterinary Orthopaedics examinations, the opportunity to buy a practice of my own arose. Too good an opportunity to miss, I moved to Stockport in 1987, and established The Albany Veterinary Clinic. Over the next 14 years the clinic grew to become a centre of excellence, where pets received the very best treatment available, with the utmost kindness and care.
From the mid nineties onwards, my interest in natural remedies, therapies and supplements grew, as I became increasingly frustrated by the inability of a conventional veterinary approach to help many of the animals under my care. Never one to quit, or simply accept the status quo, I was spurred on to find alternatives that could.
This burning desire to alleviate suffering and restore health as gently and as naturally as possible, no matter how ill a pet might be, coupled with a belief that the body is capable of extraordinary things with the right support, led me to study homeopathy along with a wide range of other therapies both in the UK and abroad.
In 1998 I gained the VetMFHom homeopathy qualification, after studying at the Glasgow Homeopathic Hospital, the London School of Homeopathy and with the Oxford Homeopathic Physicians Teaching Group for 3 years.
Nutritional therapy using natural supplements, in combination with homeopathy, became the cornerstone for the holistic treatment of pets, but acupuncture, herbal remedies and energy therapies played their part too. By 1999 I was treating the great majority of the animals I was seeing – many of which were referrals – with complementary medicine and therapies alone. Notable successes and the results of clinical trials were published in the Veterinary Times, Positive Health Magazine and local newspapers.
By 2001 I was treating an increasing number of people as well as animals, and so left Stockport to establish a complementary therapy centre in Hampshire. When my Mum’s health began to deteriorate in 2007, I sold everything, took a career break and cared for Mum full time, until she passed over in 2011.
On my return to Holistic practice following the death of my Mum, I felt a renewed desire to share what I knew of the powerful healing properties of natural, nutritional supplements with a wider audience, and to make such products more readily available to pet owners.
This led to the launch 12 months ago, of the unique, integrated range of clinically proven Vince The Vet® natural nutritional therapy products, which consistently promote health in specific areas of pets lives – often in quite remarkable ways.
The recent launch of our pure, natural, additive-free RAW meat and bone food for dogs and cats, means that we now offer a complete holistic health care solution for pets.
Our shows on UK Health will explore a wide range of health topics, which reflect the current concerns of pet owners.
