As a naturopath, nutritionist and a chiropractor with an immense passion for food, he has created professional fulfilment by following his passions. One of those passions, born of a quest to find healthy, gluten-free cereal to recommend to his clients is Forage Cereal.
In addition to his clinical practice, Damian is also one of the three voices behind the successful The Wellness Guys podcast which led to the creation of The Wellness Couch - a podcasting empire featuring some of the wellness industry's biggest names.
