Sydney, NSW, Australia
Well being is no longer just the domain of the surgeon’s blade and the physician’s stethoscope. It has become an abundant mixture of alternative therapies, detoxifying diets, weight loss programs, juice bars, yoga stretches, holistic spiritual healersand many more.
 
Everywhere you turn, from newspapers to magazines to radio and TV there is a new way to get healthy, feel good and look great.
 
But amongst the thousands of ‘new and improved’ways for us to stay healthy, there is nothing that helps us to decipher the good from bad, fact from fad, truth from myth.
 
Dr Andrew Rochford demystifies the confusion that surrounds new age diets, fitness and alternative therapies, to help people choose what is right for the individual. He does this from a medical point of view, providing people with a credible insight into modern day medicine and health.
 
Doctor Andrew Rochford joined the What's Good for Youteam on the Nine Network as the resident medicine man and human guinea pig. In his role on the series he has eaten fifteen kilos of carrots to see whether his eyesight improves, stung himself withbluebottles to test five different remedies and waxed one side of his body to see if the hair will grow back coarser and darker.
 
In 2008, Andrew is hosting the ‘Waiting Room’, a new medical-based factual reality program, and ‘Amazing Medical Stories’, both on the Nine network. Demystifying medical myths for TV goes hand in hand with his work as an Emergency Registrar at the Royal North Shore Hospital.
 
Andrew has previously worked in Brisbane at Princess Alexandra Hospital as well as Concord, Canterbury and Royal North Shore Hospitals in Sydney.
 
Formerly known as the ‘Block Doc’, Andrew became known to Australia’s TV viewing public for his stint on the 2004 series of The Block with his partner Jamie, and they subsequently won the series.
 
Andrew is a Graduate of The University of Sydney Medical School (Bachelor ofMedicine / Bachelor of Surgery), completing the graduate medical program with honours. To compliment this he also holds a Bachelors Degree in Medical Science from the University of Sydney, majoring in Anatomy and Neuroscience.
 
Andrew provides columns for Woman’s Day and Australian Men’s Fitness each month as their resident Doctor, and also makes fortnightly appearances on Mornings with Kerri-Anne, covering medical issues.
