Be Your Own Doctor

Be Your Own Doctor is a compelling and provocative health programme reflecting the new ways we now approach keeping healthy. Kate Quilton and Dr Tamal Ray - known for his time on The Great British Bake-Off - hunt down solutions to some of the biggest questions about our health. Nowadays, a huge percentage of us don't go to the doctor as our first port of call for medical advice, we go to Dr Google, but is that advice always sound? Kate and Tamal examine some of the latest online solutions to our most pressing medical needs and test some of the boldest claims from recent health advice. Can eating your placenta after childbirth really revitalise your body faster? Can an app really advise you on the status of your moles and sun damage? And what on earth does coconut pulling have to do with the perfect smile?
