We may be living longer but we’re certainly living sicker. In some cases, medications may just be masking the symptoms of the ailments that we’re experiencing, rather than getting to the internal core of the problem.

Welcome to The Shift, an investigative series that follows naturopath, nutritionist and author Katherine Maslen as she explores the dysfunctional nature of the health industry and provides people with the tools, knowledge and understanding to make the shift in their lives. Each episode of The Shift features interviews with industry experts in gut and general health from across the globe. They accompany Katherine in tackling the difficult questions surrounding global health.
