On Stage with Dr. McDougall

Yesterday was an exciting day.  I was asked to participate with Dr. McDougall in taping a show for Lifestyle Magazine, which is broadcast on TBN.  I didn't know what to expect.

I didn't realize how hard these folks work.  Dr. M and the hosts were in the midst of taping 13 shows yesterday.  I only had a chance to say "Hi" and chat during the intermissions between shows, and had a chance to chat with the other guests, like Drs. Alona and Matt, while we were awaiting our turns on stage.

The show itself was fun, and over before I knew it.  We focused on my story of reversing heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol, chronic kidney stones, etc.  The details are summarized here.  http://drmcdougall.com/stars/robert_cross.htm  I was on stage with another star McDougaller who had arrested her MS over sixteen years, which is virtually unheard of.  Dr. McDougall has an amazing and free video lecture on MS, RA, and autoimmune diseases in general here.  http://www.drmcdougall.com/video/diet_ms.html

As it turned out, the limo drivers were on a tight schedule, and I was having the microphones removed while they escorted my to the limo.  Talk about "in and out."  They didn't even have time to remove my makeup or to have the picture taken that Dr.  McDougall wanted.  But I was happy to catch an earlier flight and be home sooner.

The show could not say when the episode will air, but probably some time within the next year.  They will notify me and I will post here.


  1. Sounds like an exciting time! I hope we don't have to wait too long to see the episode you were in. I am particularly interested in the MS story too!

  2. So glad to have my star back home.

  3. Can hardly wait. Sound like quite an adventure.

  4. What a cool experience! I'll for sure keep an eye out for the airing date. Here in northern Illinois, our Direct TV channel is 378 on the NRB station. I have no clue what the initials stand for! It airs on Friday at 4:30 pm, so I'll try to take a look at it this week just for kicks.

    So, Bob, was "appearing on TV" one of the items on your bucket list??? LOL

  5. well I bookmarked that site and looked thru the archives. Very frustrated today with my blood work. Dr. says I am fine, I think it's lousy!

    I don't have a bucket list, but if I did, being on TV would not on it. A have been on TV a few times due to job before I retired. Some of my cases were "newsworthy." But I do hope that Dr. McDougall gets a wide audience for his shows. He helps a lot of people.
