Save Money: Good Health

 

Series overview

 

Save Money Good Health is back for a brand new series looking at ways to spend it well on your health.

 

Journalist Sian Williams and Doctor Ranj Singh unpack how to get the best for your money when it comes to our biggest health concerns; right through from sleep and ageing to common illnesses and not forgetting some of those more embarrassing problems and weigh up what's in our shopping baskets from medicine cupboard essentials to the latest gadgets and off the shelf products.   

 

Episode 3

 

This week is all about sleep.

 

A good night's sleep can do wonders for our physical and mental health, but it's not always easy to achieve. The supermarket shelves are stacked with products to help us sleep, but which are worth spending our money on?

 

Dr Ranj meets pharmacist Harsha Parmar to look at everything from natural remedies to sleeping tablets. What are the active ingredients and can they work? 

 

Sian meets with sleep specialist Dr Sophie Bostock to look at the latest gadgetry designed to help us sleep - from a gravity blanket to a state-of-the-art speaking eye mask. All have a hefty price tag, but will any of them do the trick for our Save Money insomniac road tester? 

 

We'll also be continuing to shop around for treatments to those embarrassing problems so you don't have to. This time we're tackling a painful condition that will effect half of us over our lifetimes: haemorrhoids. 

 

And not forgetting, our essential weekly guide to vitamin and mineral supplements which continues with B12.
