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 7
 
More than seven million people suffer from heart disease in the UK. But can you find out if you’re at risk by using off the shelf testing kits? Sian investigates home testing kits for cholesterol and high blood pressure. 
 
For those of us who spend most of day in a sedentary job or in front of a computer screen, Dr Ranj puts stand-up desks to the test. Can they be the answer to fighting back pain, improving posture and even burning more calories? 
 
We’ll also be looking at indoor pollution as Verity Mann from the Good Housekeeping Institute gives us her essential and affordable guide to keeping spore producing mould and mildew at bay. 
 
We're continuing to shop around for treatments to those embarrassing problems so you don't have to. This time, we're tackling a painful condition: ingrown hairs. 
 
And not forgetting, our essential weekly guide to vitamin and mineral supplements which this week is Omega 3.
