Episode 5

Episode: CCFHO-105H

The Food Hospital experts meet 42-year-old Ellie, who has a rare and traumatising condition called Fish Odour Syndrome. She gives off odours ranging from sulphur to rotting garbage and the reactions she gets have taken her mentally to the brink. By taking her treatment into her own hands and cutting out whole food groups without medical supervision, Ellie's relationship with food has been destroyed and her health has been put at risk. Severe eczema has taken over 16-year-old Toby's life, to the extent that he fears ever being able to fulfil his dream of becoming aeroplane cabin crew through fear of people's reactions to his noticeable, crusty lesions. Thirty-year-old mum Michelle suffers from crippling pain due to suspected gallstones. Can Shaw and Lucy treat her with just food, thus avoiding surgery? Lucy and Gio myth-bust hangover cures with three hard drinking students from Leeds the morning after a big binge drinking session. Plus, Dr Pixie McKenna investigates the truth about health claims on food packaging - does food always really do what it says on the tin?
