Tonight I will be appearing on a Channel 4 TV show in the UK named 'The Health Detectives'. I filmed an interview last year discussing my personal experiences of suffering from abnormal gut fermentation and 'auto-brewery syndrome' and found out today it will be part of this show tonight.

Also featured in the 30 minute documentary is a separate piece investigating faecal (fecal) transplants; a treatment I have also tried personally and which has been discussed in detail here on EiR in the past.

It should be a really interesting watch for anyone suffering from unexplained gut problems and I hope readers in other countries will be able to see the show on TV or online very soon. I'd love to know what you thought of the show if you do catch it!

Here's a link and a bit of blurb about the show from Channel 4 and the production company 7 Wonder: http://www.channel4.com/info/press/news/channel-4-orders-the-health-detectives-from-7-wonder

"The Health Detectives produced by 7 Wonder. The show will explore some of the most jaw dropping body problems, social media rumours and health fads that have gone viral, in an attempt to separate fact from fiction.

Delivering health by stealth, three intrepid presenters – Cherry Healey, Dr Pixie McKenna and Science Journalist Dara Mohammadi will leave no stone unturned in their unflinching quest to find out if cheesy feet could save lives, whether you can get drunk on chips and if faecal transplants are the future."

Booked it! Don't believe in giving you much notice do they?

They had 6 months to let me know but gave me only hours notice Jodie, seems the norm from my growing TV experience! Did you watch it and what did you think?
I hate watching myself on film so haven't plucked up the courage yet. The feedback I've had has all been along the lines that I got my points across well but was edited down to the briefest appearance! I'm told they also didn't explore the issue enough and had a typically dismissive doctor contradict most of what I'd said (could have guessed that would happen!). The best show I've been on remains Galileo made by ProSiebenSat.1 for the German-speaking countries I think...
Would love to know what you thought of the show in general if you watched Jodie. I'll put it on in the next week and post a fully informed comment!

Well as far as your appearance went, pretty much blink and you missed it! I don't know how much of your time you gave them but I'm sure it was much more than shown. Wasn't very enlightening really.. they gave more time to other subjects & I remember one being really interesting, but dang forgotten what it was now :b

Ah now I remember! Fecal transplants used in a London NHS hosp - proving to be 100% effective against C.Diff ..
