Oliver Patrick is a leading physiologist, entrepreneur, and expert in lifestyle management who is on a mission to teach others the skills required to build stress resilience. A multiple business owner, Oliver is both co-founder of the world’s most advanced health evaluation service Viavi and founder of the first lifestyle medicine gym, Viavi:be. He is also an admirable public and keynote speaker for functional and lifestyle medicine, for which he has extensive clinical experience.
Prior to entrepreneurship, Oliver was Head of Physiology at Nuffield Health, where he helped to set up the largest team of applied physiologists, well-being advisors and nutritionists in the UK. So far Oliver has already completely revolutionised the concept of traditional health screening frameworks - his primary aim to contemporise the delivery of well-being services within the corporate and hospitality marketplace for all levels of access.
In Oliver’s words as a society we are in the midst of a stress epidemic, and though largely considered a psychological problem, unknowingly, prolonged cognitive strain is one of the most significant contributors to ill physical health. Oliver suggests that our ability to mentally flourish lies in our lifestyle choices and the personal routes we take – on reflection this episode communicates a powerful message that I personally consider very important, making it a gracious addition to my podcast.
