Stand-up comedian and junior doctor Kwame Asante presents this BBC Radio 4 panel show about our obsession with health and wellness, in which comedian guests put their ideas to improve our health to a panel of medical experts to see if they could really work.

From crystals and folk remedies, to detox, yoga, mindfulness or hair of the dog, Kwame and his guests have to decide whether it could be valid science or if it's just the Placebo Effect.
