Can you actually make a disease disappear? Dr Rangan Chatterjee thinks you can. Often referred to as the doctor of the future, Rangan is changing the way that we look at illness and how medicine will be practised in years to come. He highlighted his methods in the groundbreaking BBC TV show, Doctor In The House, gaining him much acclaim from patients, his contemporaries and the media.
Rangan’s 15 years of clinical experience in the NHS includes internal medicine, immunology and general practice. A pioneer in the emerging field of progressive medicine, he also uses techniques from other disciplines he has studied including movement kinetics and functional medicine.
His own journey of learning was accelerated when family members fell ill and now Rangan is helping people to take control of their health by addressing the root causes of their illnesses, something which is often not achieved in 21st century health care, evidenced by a steady increase in the rates of chronic disease.
Rangan is a super-generalist, looking at as many factors as possible which can create wellness or illness. His talk is testament to how our thinking around the concept of disease needs to change to help form a map for future healthcare.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
We can not generalize. Vit D supplementation will not heal all chronic diseases itself without a good diet and exercises. I am a medical doctor and use Vit D in various dosis. In practice, it does not happen, Dr. Chatterjee. Unfortunatelly.
This doctor has hit the nail on the head - I've seen so much illness just within my large family and have even served as a full-time caretaker for several years for my own mother as she declined from pharmaceutically - induced Parkinson's and finally took her life - there are factors below the radar of classically trained physicians, who for the most part (at least here in America) have disconnected from their profession emotionally, and find it more convenient to treat the symptoms, rather than address the cause which are usually one or more of those pointed out - Diet, Stress, Sleep (deprivation), Environmental Toxins, Physical Activity (or lack thereof), Gut Health, Infections, Sunlight (or lack of), and if I can add one of the most important, proper hydration by WATER, not tea, soda, coffee, etc. As for myself, 18 years ago I nearly had surgery for Carpal Tunnel, which at a young age was going to cost me my livelihood. At the suggestion of a friend, I gave Water Therapy a chance, after ten days of proper water therapy, the yearlong debilitating effects of Carpal Tunnel was gone - and have remained gone. My older brother, a Classical Guitarist, had the surgery, and could never play again. We must be proactive with illness, research, read, learn - there's always another way to achieve healing.

The Enigmatic Dot.
Healings of baby boys and all babys in the name of jesus removeing merechacine in the name of jesus healings of soul thank you jesus both of my child its alive active and nothing its wrong with them thanks god
Thanks for sharing, It would be nice if we can change the way of robotic teaching /training at every level of education including the medical schools from the antenatal period to leaving this awesome complex and very simple vessel created by the god/ nature. Instead of looking outside, we need to go inside and live a life being human.
The majority of MD s are not interested in root causes of the symptoms or disease. Hat off to Dr. Rangan for showing passion and true care for his patients,which unfortunately ,it is such rare qualities among medical world. People mentioning that this is nothing new,think about the last time you walked into a GP room and you Ve been asked about a complete picture of your life style,not just the typical"do you exercise or do you smoke" questions.MD's need to get off their comfort chair and do what Dr Rangan does. That's what this video is about,in my humble opinion.
I had 7 years struggling with a damaged spine, nerve pain was out the window and back in the front door again. Doc gave me pain killers which rotted my guts, i now have a stomach ulcer. A friend gave me some CBD oil to vape, 4 months later, i was back working, ive had one day off through pain in over a year. My back still hurts but CBD oil dulls the pain enough to ignore.
A complete waste of time!!! He never answered how to make diseases disappear as promised in the title, just bragging how he can make diseases disappear, although every medical worker can do that. Under which rock has he been living, when he doesn't know that all that he said there is common knowledge already for couple decades. He said nothing new. It is scary to think that there are such docs in this day and age who think they need to educate the public about the stuff that public knows very well. It just goes to show how uneducated some docs are, when they think that something like this is something new. Every child nowadays nows that medicine only deals with symptoms, not with the roots of the diseases and that doctors heal deseases, when they should heal people, but it is not in their interest to make people healthy, because they would have no jobs and couldn't get their bonuses from pharma industry.
Try to convince American Big Pharma that the reasonable way to cure a person is not pills!! Going to the root/cause of the problem is an old idea that current medical doctors do not get trained on. They are only trained to become simple salesmen of pills.
We need more Doctors like this! I was diagnosed with Gastroparisis "incurable Disease" and since day one I refused all medication. I changed my diet(if man made it, I dont eat it), increased quality of sleep, exercise how I could and eliminated any possible exposure to neurotoxins like fluoride in water and contaminated products and I must say I am getting much better each day.
Sadly, Dr Chatterjee is one of a very small minority of 'enlightened' practising Doctors here in the UK. In stark contrast, we have a traditional GP who authors a column in the Daily Mail on Tuesdays and is obsessed with Statins, convinced that even healthy people should be prescribed these dangerous 'cholesterol busting' drugs. Many Doctors seem to have forgotten just four simple words coined over 2,000 years ago by Hippocrates the famous Greek Physician; "First, Do No Harm". The pill-pushers of today should be ashamed that they have not acquired a good understanding of what the human body wants and needs at the cellular level in order to achieve and maintain optimum wellness. Although drug dependency is on the increase, not one person has ever been found to suffer from a drug deficiency. While Big Pharma controls Governments and law-makers there is little hope for humanity. Concerned about your health? Time to get real. Bravo Dr Chatterjee, you are a beacon of hope swimming in a swamp of negligence and corruption!
All diseases will disappear if all doctors should cultivate organic crops all are healthy no diseases no patients no doctors no income no seminars all are healthy can doctors cultivate organic crops for Indians
The problem lies in the fact that Earth's population raises and has got to such point that there is not enough land to cultivate healthy food, but mostly wheat/corn and other crops, not vegetables. The population has to stop growing. I believe 1 billion people (instead of 7.5) is the way to go.
We need to study etiology vs. symptomology today....ohhh....I guess we need many, many more Naturopathic Physicians. They actually take care of "root causes"....MD's,.....take care of setting bones (and do this very, very well indeed) and in giving drugs (and they do this very, very well indeed!)
You should have become or should still become a holistic doctor, if you haven't already..
They have been onto this stuff for decades.. I went to an herbalist over 20 years ago and I learned more from my first appointment with her than I did from Years of seeing dozens of primary care physicians.. it all goes back to primal, natural living, which none of us are doing these days.. even those of us who are trying our best to eat healthy are getting tricked and screwed left and right by the government removing nutrients by over-processing food, creating GMOs and outsourcing certain ingredients to other countries who don't have our same regulations and protection on food :( it's very frustrating when even if the food we consume is out of our control..
And I live in a city where I don't have a patch of grass to plant any crops, I've even tried growing certain herbs inside of my apartment but there must be so much environmental toxics from living near a highway and so many industrial factories that I can't keep anything alive, which is really scary to think about what the air I breathe it's doing to my health.
So glad , this important subject is addressed by a brilliant and courageous Doctor!!! Pharmaceutical companies are not going to be happy with his message because their mission is to sell medicine to patients on long terms basis. The term cure does not exist in their vocab, brings their business down!
I couldn’t imagine what he went through. This is something people think I’m paranoid over but I want to see my child’s blood work. Things that doctors not might connect the dots to. I’m type one diabetic. The only one in my family. I have had pretty incredibly low vitamin d. I’ve felt dead. I’ve felt beyond exhausted. I’m not sure you can cure type 1 diabetes ... you can’t. Least not that the public knows about
He’s great but you’re never going to cure my disease. Why ? Because of $$$$... so to say you can cure type 2 is no noble feet. Acute Type 2 is preventable and curable ... to a certain point.
Because of his strategy I might can try to prevent my daughter from this CHRONIC illness. Maybe. But he’s leading people to believe an unreal expectation of type 1. No. My type 1 isn’t because of high sugar intake. Any doctor can tell you this. But nobody knows the exact cause. Stress is even a possible cause.
OMG - Do no Harm/let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food........what a bunch of wacky ideas..... I hate allopathic medicine.....more importantly I hate the institution that blinds our bright doctors and turns them into nothing more than government approved drug dealers.
It's utterly astonishing to me that a qualified medical doctor can come out and say something like this (which isn't particularly earth-shattering, most people know this already) and Big Pharma haven't bumped him off. What he's saying poses such a threat to their income streams that he will not be allowed to continue. Imagine treating the cause of a problem that generates a mountain of cash, rather than treating a symptom and keeping the cash pile growing.
Ted, Big Pharma controls the mainstream medical profession in the UK and around the World. Even when convicted of bribing Doctors the drug companies only receive a fine... no one ever gets jailed. Unfortunately too many consumers believe that their GP is second only to 'God' (think Dr Harold Shipman). No one forces anyone to accept a prescribed drug. No one forces another person to fill their shopping trolley with junk food. The REAL cause of at least 80% of illness and disease in the general population is Ignorance and Apathy. Unfortunately there is no known remedy for this common ailment.
Community pharmacists are the health professionals most accessible to the public. They supply medicines in accordance with a prescription or, when legally permitted, sell them without a prescription. In addition to ensuring an accurate supply of appropriate products, their professional activities also cover counselling of patients at the time of dispensing of prescription and non-prescription drugs, drug information to health professionals, patients and the general public, and participation in health-promotion programmes. They maintain links with other health professionals in primary health care.
