The outraged and stupid response to this clear, documented, illustrated, and indisputable set of case studies shows us why it has hung on for so long, has it not?

I just watched episode 3. What an amazing piece of tv viewing. Honest. Direct. And clearly demonstrates how reachable better health can be without bells, whistles, and other hoopla. Thanks Janet for sharing the links!

Dr. Chatterjee returns on May 15th. Eventually the episodes become available outside the UK, but if you have BBC, a story in the DailyMail about the upcoming series.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/a...s-make-ill.html

All the Time I See Patients Who Don’t Need a Pill, They Need a Change of Lifestyle

More pills to treat conditions can actually do more harm than good. But simple lifestyle changes, on the other hand, can have tremendously positive impacts. That’s the philosophy of BBC’s star Dr. Rangan Chatterjee, who is having quite a lot of success treating patients.

We doctors are really good at treating acute problems you can get rid of with a drug — infections, pneumonia, for example. But outside acute cases, too often we provide a treatment that suppresses symptoms without looking for a root cause, and so people take pills long term for an issue that a small change of lifestyle might have solved.
– Dr. Rangan Chatterjee

Doctor in the House

Series 2 - Episode 1


For the last 15 years mum of two, Gemma, has battled cluster headaches up to ten times a day. Experts often refer to them to as 'suicide headaches' because the pain is said to be the worst that any human can experience. This crippling condition is destroying family life and particularly taking its toll on husband, Simon. It's a major challenge for Dr Chatterjee. So far, no one has been able to help Gemma overcome her condition and the family are desperate for a cure.

Gary Farmer lost his leg in a car crash when he was five years old, but he's overcome his disability and achieved success as a Paralympic ice hockey player. However, a lifetime on crutches and a punishing exercise regime has severely damaged his shoulders and he will soon be confined to a wheelchair. It's up to Dr Chattergee to come up with a solution to keep him on his feet and able to compete.

Doctor in the House

Series 2 - Episode 2


The doctor is called in to help 34-year-old Emma, who has been suffering from severe anxiety, panic attacks and depression since she was 19. She is refusing to see a counsellor and instead relies on a cocktail of antidepressants, alcohol, nicotine, caffeine and high-sugar foods. Dr Rangan must find a way to get to the bottom of Emma's mental health problems and break the vicious cycle that's destroying her life.

Despite James Murray's healthy lifestyle, he struggles with debilitating exhaustion and terrible sleep. For twenty years, his condition has been a mystery to doctors. Can Dr Rangan get to the root of his problem?

Due to schedule changes, the final episode of the latest Doctor in the House series will be shown next Tuesday night (27 June) at 10.45pm on BBC1. It will cover fibromyalgia, type 2 diabetes and preventative medicine.

Quote:
Nicola has been diagnosed with ten different conditions, including fibromyalgia, ME, sciatica and depression. Her pain and exhaustion have led her to become reliant on painkillers and she struggles to get through the day. Can Dr Chatterjee help Nicola find the cause of her problems and improve her health so that she can enjoy life again with her three young sons?

La-Vern is suffering from stress and severe exhaustion and is at risk of developing life-threatening type 2 diabetes. As a single mother, she works two jobs as a car saleswoman and a nightclub bouncer whilst juggling the demands of her two young sons. Rangan must find a way to completely overhaul her lifestyle, including her diet, sleeping habits and work-life balance.
