My own experience of being diagnosed with prostate cancer and chronic lymphocytic cancer (CLL), and my subsequent research, treatment and efforts to maintain my natural immune system so that there is no return led to this series. 

In Understanding Your Health, I speak with two GPs who are members of the Australasian College of Nutritional and Environmental Medicine (ACNEM). Both are keen for patients to be more informed about their illnesses and more actively involved in their treatment. After becoming GPs they undertook extra study in nutrition, diet and lifestyle changes that can improve recovery from illnesses.

Hear about some of the specifics of a healthy diet, nutrition, and supplements.
