Movies and documentaries can be a great way to entertain and educate yourself at the same time (and can be a little easier going than some  of the more hardcore books below). Why not swap out one of your weekly Game of Thrones marathons for a health-related documentary. You won't regret it! Below are a few of our favourites. You should note that we don't necessarily agree with, or advocate the messages in all of these films and in some respects they contradict each other. Nonetheless, here at The Holist, we strongly believe it is useful and interesting to explore as much of the information and as many of the points of view out there to make up our own minds. You can order the DVD's of most of these in Amazon but if you want to watch them online you may have to do a bit of a hunt around as they aren't all available on the UK iTunes store.
