About this work


The first in an eight-part series in which a pioneering team attempt to counter certain medical conditions by using food as medicine. The team include dietitian Lucy Jones, GP Gio Miletto and consultant surgeon Shaw Somers. Over three months they will attempt to treat a number of condtions without prescribing a single drug. This time they help a 19-year-old dancer with Crohn's disease, an ex-soldier with a sleep disorder and a man with a low sperm count. An obese teenager is shown how to approach food following gastric bypass surgery. Pixie McKenna looks at the truth about whether or not sports drinks can really boost energy.
