Dr-Ahluwalia

India has its own version of “The Dr. Oz Show.” It’s called “All Is Well” and debuted in April.

Host Dr. Sonu Ahluwalia is on a “mission to prove to India that AIDS can’t be transferred by mosquitoes, turmeric isn’t a cure-all and a pot belly is not a sign of prosperity but of poor health.”

Excerpt from the article on WSJ.

Like Mehmet Oz, who hosts “The Dr. Oz Show,” Dr. Ahluwalia’s style is casual. On set, he alternates between open-collar shirts and medical scrubs and jokes with his audience. On his premiere show, he measured a couple’s waistlines to demonstrate the dangers of their increasing weight before discussing irritable bowel syndrome with a 50-year-old woman.
