ANGE FOSTER - How Heart Failure gave Ange a new lease on life ... and a side hustle that supporting small businesses
Ange's positivity  in herself, her health, life and business would make you think she won the lottery.  But in her early 30's she was diagnosed with 2 chronic conditions, Hashimoto’s Disease (when your immune system attacks your thyroid and it stops producing hormones) and Fibromyalgia (a condition that causes pain in the muscles and bones, along with fatigue and poor sleep).  Wanting to educate herself in her conditions and take ownership of her life, she did extensive research and made health and wellness her number one priority.  But her next health challenge would prove to be her biggest. Ange was diagnosed with severe dilated cardiomyopathy (a disease of the heart muscle, where the heart cannot pump blood as well as it should), putting her at risk of needing an automated external defibrillator (AED) or, potentially, a heart transplant. An incredible woman with a zest for life despite her challenges. This is her story.  Where to Find Ange: Website: Instagram: @thelittlegiftloft More on Ange : DISCOUNT CODE: Type LGL10 at The Little Gift Loft checkout to receive 10% off (Use by 31st December) Get In Touch Instagram: @jackietann_rmt

INGRID NIELSEN- How exercise impacts "irreversible" diseases...
At 73, Ingrid Nielsen is in the fittest and strongest shape of her life.  When you hear her talk about her training, you'd be forgiven to think she's been training her whole life, but Ingrid only started running at 67,  ran a half marathon 6 months later and 2 years after that, at 68, she ran her first marathon.  If that weren't impressive enough already, Ingrid has the most incredible life story, having grown up in Cape Town and Johannesburg, South Africa, Was a nun from the ages of 16-21, studied medicine, married an actor, divorced said actor 3 kids later, became a forensic pathologist, emigrated to Australia , became a Psychiatrist and opened a private practice at 45 to which she burnt herself out at 55.  She took a year off, went back to practice and slowly started to realise the life she was living wasn't sustainable..... If you think you're too old to start a new life, you're not. If you're think you're too old to start exercising, you're not. If you think you can't, you can..... and Ingrid is the perfect example.
