Wild + Well

With Dr Hilary Claire

Welcome to The Wild + Well Podcast! I’m your host, Dr. Hilary Claire, a clinical psychologist with a focus on nutrition and environmental medicine, yoga teacher, author and mom of two wild boys.

Here we delve into the big and little things that move the needle for children’s health and mental wellness in a modern world that doesn’t make it easy to do so.

Since our modern day lifestyles are drastically misaligned with our DNA and how we as humans are intended to live, we have to be intentional about creating a new way of living that supports our families to thrive, our little ones to stay a bit wild and us mamas to live our best lives.

Together we can nurture resilient kids, vibrant mothers, and a brighter future for the planet and the next generation.

In this podcast, we will cover topics including:

  • Fostering optimal brain health, mental health and neurodevelopment for our little ones using food, lifestyle, psychology and environmental medicine;
  • Natural approaches to support our family’s health and wellbeing;
  • Parenting strategies for resilient, emotionally intelligent and confident kids;
  • What modern day mothers need to be vital and flourish;
  • Unschooling and options outside of conventional education;
  • What patriarchal beliefs are keeping mothers small and stuck and how to let go of these;
  • Intentional, slow and alternative lifestyles;
  • Treating our kids like the sovereign beings that they are;
  • Rewilding and bringing more nature into our daily lives;
  • Creating connected communities;
  • Treading gently on our beautiful planet as parents so future generations can enjoy the magnificence that the world has to offer;
  • And many other topics that you might not find in the mainstream.


Let’s get into it.
