Modern medicine has given doctors loads of tools for diagnosis, but this 3D technology is exciting for its potential to give patients a voice and a way for them to feel empowered and involved in their healing process. ‘Your Body Uncovered with Kate Garraway’ according to BBC Two’s Dr. Singh, “is a glimpse into all the best that healthcare has to offer – cutting edge technology, with experts in the field and patient stories that resonate with us all.”
A must watch!
If you are squeamish and squirmish, then I must warn you about viewer discretion because the images are very graphic and real. However, this is one of the most compelling, riveting and profound documentaries I have ever seen. I have never experienced health in this way. It is mind-blowing, fascinating, and spellbinding. It is a revelation.
Please tune in on BBC Two on Wednesday March 2 at 8.30pm. The series will also be available on BBCiPlayer. Be sure to come back on this thread and comment. Let’s start the conversation… Fibroids!
