Andrea du Plessis, a regular on the SABC breakfast show, Expresso, is excited about this new platform from which she can share nutritional information. "I truly believe that South Africans are hungry and ready to learn more about maintaining good health," says Andrea. "I hope to empower and inspire the viewers to be as healthy as they can be." She believes that the most effective way to inspire people to change their lifestyle, is to present information in the form of simple, practical tips.
The show, produced and presented by Dr Michael Mol, will air Sundays 17:00-18:00, starting on 17 April 2011. This series sets out to debunk the myths and demystify the truths about what makes you tick and how to keep you ticking for longer. You'll discover you're not alone as they draw on the personal experiences and testimonies of South African celebrities and their stories of success and struggles with sickness. And for those who want even more - the show's website, hellodoctor.com, will not only be a resource of vetted information that will keep you clued up and glued to your screens, but you'll also have the opportunity of interacting online with the show's doctors.
It's only logical that South Africa's leading supplement manufacturer, Vital Health Foods, have a presence on the new show. "Our desire is to inspire and motivate South Africans to lead healthy lives," says George Grieve, Managing Director of Vital Health Foods. "What better way to empower and motivate people to achieve self-fulfillment, than through this innovative approach to education?"
