"I'm passionate about empowering others to understand the basics of good health," Dr Braid said.
"Good health starts at home, it doesn't have to be complicated or expensive. It's the daily actions that one takes that add up to good health or illness."

She adds her expertise in lifestyle medicine in her approach to good health with clients, looking at common root causes of disease and addressing them on an individual basis.
