The Magic Pill

What if most of our modern diseases are really just symptoms of the same problem? The Magic Pill follows doctors, patients, scientists, chefs, farmers and journalists from around the globe who are combating illness through a paradigm shift in eating. And this simple change – embracing fat as our main fuel – is showing profound promise in improving the health of people, animals and the planet.

Join us for a very special Suburban Sandcastles Film & Conversation, with an introduction before the film by Chef Pete Evans, followed by a Q&A with our panel after the film.

Q&A panel

Dr Damian Kristof, Nutritionist, Naturopath and Chiropractor, is a highly sought after presenter and speaker in the Wellness industry. With over 20 years of experience, Damian's in-depth knowledge of the body, nervous system food functions and responses coupled with his friendly and dynamic presenting style, has him in high demand. Focusing on food as a key to unlocking optimal health and wellness, Damian presents in-depth facts and concepts that have never before been readily available to the public - offering all audiences from industry experts to the general public, highly valuable content as he engages, educates and inspires audiences across the globe.

Maddie Race, Holistic Health Coach and cooking teacher, is passionate about educating and inspiring families to get in the kitchen and cook with real ingredients and connect with real food that fuels your body right. An ambassador to Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution and That Sugar Film, Maddie specialises in empowering mums to take control of their pantries and fridges and inspires the entire family to cook more from scratch, for a healthier, happier life.
