The House of Wellness – Season 6, Episode 5

This week on the House of Wellness it’s all about multiple births as we check in on the Albert triplets who are now 3 years old. Shaun and Renee and their girls join us for an eventful appearance in the HOW studio. Triple the treat or twice the fun? One in 80 births in Australia is a twin and 30% of those are identical. Scientists know how twins are made but a new study into why the phenomenon happens in the first place could hold up a mirror to human health that could benefit us all. Purple is the colour associated with epilepsy. It’s a condition most people know very little about. So be ready for some facts that will surprise and enlighten. Purple is also the favourite colour of bees. See how that colourful attraction is helping fight a destructive mite that’s threatened bee numbers overseas. Faster is not always better! The slow movement is a deliberate slowing down of the pace of life as Luke Hines visits the very calming world of exercising the gentle way. You won’t find much laughing out loud in a yoga class, until you’ve met Merv Neal who’s mastered the art of matching a belly laugh with a downward dog. Doctor Nick Carr gets the bowels moving by taking the ‘oo’ out of poo, all in the name of supreme gut health. All that and more this week on the House of Wellness.

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