Will people like Wellmania? Brigid Delaney isn’t worried

From a bare-it-all memoir to a gut-busting Netflix series, Brigid Delaney's Wellmania has been through as much of a journey as its creator.

In Wellmania: Misadventures in the Search for Wellness, author and Guardian Australia columnist Brigid Delaney recounts her trials and tribulations through the world of wellness – from juice cleanses to yoga retreats, from meditation apps to colonics.

Now, her memoir is finding a new audience in the form of a bingeworthy Netflix series. Wellmania (2023) stars Celeste Barber as Liv, an Australian food critic and ‘human tornado’ living in New York, who loses her Green Card back to the US when a doctor diagnoses her with ‘catastrophic health’.
