Check into The Food Hospital

Tune in to Cooking Channel’s premiere of The Food Hospital tonight at 9pm ET. Three medical experts — general practitioner Dr. Giovanni Miletto, dietician Lucy Jones and gastrointestinal surgeon Shaw Somers — will examine the science behind using food as medicine. Patients suffering from a range of medical conditions are  prescribed specific food treatments to find out if their symptoms can be alleviated or cured by the food they eat.

On tonight’s episode, the doctors meet 24-year-old Lauren, who has been suffering from Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) since she was 15. Her case is so extreme, with symptoms such as weight gain, fertility problems and most noticeably, excessive body and facial hair, that Lauren fears living as a virtual recluse forever unless she can find help. They also treat a 7-year-old with crippling migraines, a single dad with Type 2 diabetes, and twin sisters trying to use food to fight breast cancer.

The Food Hospital airs Mondays at 9pm ET on Cooking Channel.

Meet more of the patients and see their symptoms.
