Editorial Reviews

From cornflakes to crystals, no matter how bizarre the method, Americans haven't been shy about doing whatever it takes to improve their health. In this episode, hosts Mark Sceurman and Mark Moran take viewers around the country to investigate our obsession with weird medicine, and see what doctors and patients have done over the years to achieve a healthy life. It all begins at the world's weirdest medical museum in Philadelphia, and ends up in San Francisco, where we investigate the latest health fad to hit the country--laughter clubs. On our 200-year trip through history we look at everything from finding your "Mojo" through a root doctor, to medical quacks like Albert Abrams, who believed he discovered electronic waves that emit from human organs. And if that's not enough, we also take a look at the life of health pioneer John Harvey Kellogg who may have loved his daily enemas, but still ran the most popular health spa of the early 20th century.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

Verified Purchase
This was a Christmas gift. I watched it with the recipient, who has a medical background, and found it to be very elementary. None of the more well-known areas were mentioned, such as Vitamin C megadoses and homeopathic medicine (admittedly a European and not American focus). I thought that this DVD would be good because I like the History Channel, but appears to be just an hour of interviews with a couple of interesting tidbits of trivia best directed to a high school level of understanding. It was inexpensive but still not worth the money.
