The House of Wellness – Season 4, Episode 19

This week on the show we shine a spotlight on some body and mind issues that are often taboo, as part of Men’s Health Week.

Gotcha4Life’s founder Gus Worland is one man who isn’t afraid to share his feelings and he’s enlisted one of the greatest test batsmen of all time, Steve Smith, as this year’s ambassador. Steve opens up about his public fall from grace, surviving dark times and the mental health message he wants kids especially to hear.

As part of the focus on mental health, AFL midfielder Dayne Beams also shares his battle with mental health and his secret to recovery – trading in his footy boots for paintbrushes.

Australia has one of the highest rates of bowel cancer in the world but it’s not just a disease that affects the over 50’s. Diagnosed at just 40 years old, meet the man who found his way back from bowel cancer with a radical new treatment. Then follow up with Professor Graham Newstead, who has the facts on how to prevent one of the few cancers that can be cured if detected early.

Have your questions about diabetes, fatty livers and blood pressure answered with resident pharmacist Gerald Quigley and don’t miss Collingwood Club President Eddie Maguire as he takes the hot-seat to answer a few hard and fast questions.

Cast: Luke Darcy, Jo Stanley, and Luke Hines, with Gerald Quigley.
