Chris and Xand are doctors. They’re also identical twins. Trained in tropical medicine they are ideally equipped to experiment with life beyond paracetamol and prozac. Embracing the strange practices of remote communities in pursuit of new medical knowledge, together they discover how people thrive in the fetid swaps of the Congo, experience extraordinary Eastern approaches to pain, and are won over by the unhealthiest looking Arctic diet, and test the healing power of Amazonian sprits.
