TV – The Truth About Obesity With Sean Mulroney
Join Dr. Jamie Gilliam and special guest, Sean Mulroney for an open and enlightening conversation on this Heal Your Body episode: The Truth About Obesity.
Sean has been fighting obesity his entire adult life and shares his personal journey to shed light on the everyday struggles faced by individuals contending with this disease. Many people do not understand that obesity is a multifaceted disease, reaching far beyond its visible aspects, encompassing a complex interplay of genetic, medical, psychological, environmental, lifestyle, and socio-economic factors.
Dr. Jamie and Sean explore the necessity of a comprehensive approach to tackle obesity—one that surpasses traditional diet and exercise routines, encompassing a spectrum of interventions, from medical to behavioral and nutritional support, even including bariatric surgery in certain cases.
However, the discussion doesn’t stoop there. Dr. Jamie and Sean candidly discuss the harsh reality of stigma surrounding obesity, dissecting how societal perceptions often cast unjust blame on individuals grappling with this complex disease. This stigma not only restricts access to vital healthcare but also perpetuates discrimination and significantly impacts mental well-being.
