Remedy Me!

“a new documentary series that follows those who suffer from odd or embarrassing illnesses as they explore the world of alternative medicine, made its debut Tuesday, April 7, 2009 on W Network.

Tag along as these men and women – many dogged for years by ailments including irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, restless-leg syndrome and adult acne – talk frankly about their problems and their frustration with conventional treatments, and ultimately dive into alternative therapies.

Filmed in Halifax, Toronto and Vancouver, Remedy Me! offers a behind-the-scenes look at complementary medicine and alternative therapies ranging from Traditional Chinese Medicine, Hypnosis and Reiki to Chiropractic, Acupuncture and Bio-energy Healing. The process is sometimes distasteful, often invigorating, usually humorous, and always interesting.”

Meryl took part in Episode 9 of Season 1, a segment on Sweating (Hyperhydrosis), filmed by Creative Atlantic which will be broadcast later in the season, (search for Remedy Me).

“Fed up with the hassle of excessively sweaty hands and soggy feet, stay-at-home Mom of two, Darla, tries traditional Chinese medicine to stop her extreme sweating, while fellow sweater and professional musician, Krisanne, swallows a homeopathic remedy in her struggle to find a drier future.”
