Dr Butler Conclusion to Unleashing the Truth series


Question: So, while filming the ‘Unleashing the Truth’ series, what was, for you, the key highlights, that you most enjoyed? Well, the key highlights that I most enjoyed was, that I talked to a whole bunch of different subspecialists and so, I do interact with cardiologists quite a lot but I had to interact with primary care physician, with an endocrinologist and learning everybody else’s perspective and how those perspectives actually overlap and people were thinking from a similar perspective, was enjoyable. But honestly, just going through the experience of making these videos by themselves was very enjoyable as well. So, not only the content, but the process by itself. Question: How was it for you to have this different Leash partner, guiding you and supporting you during this…? So, I’ve never had a pet. I was really anxious about working with a dog and all I can tell you is that after the fourth one, I really wanted to have a dog and have a pet. So, that was great experience! The first time I was a little bit hesitant. I didn’t know how fast the dog will walk and how much can I pull the dog back and, you know, all that kind of stuff, so, you have to sort of learn through that process, but it was a very good experience. So, as I said, one is talking in front of the camera. You know, I’ve done a lot of the program in front of medical media but not this sort of a social background and environment. So, that was sort of new and then have a pet with you, that was sort of new and then you are also sort of conversing with someone else. So, all of these new experiences, but I think the individuals that were involved in this process were unbelievably supportive, helpful and professional. And then the dogs were just great! Question: And why have a pet in this setting? Well, because, you know, there’s actually a good amount of data that suggests that pets are good for your health, you know, people take care for it. Actually, it’s very interesting, that we tend to actually take care of our pets sometimes more than we actually take care of ourselves. So, you know, if you are a pet, let’s say people take them to the vet on a very regular basis but if you are sick, you kind of just delay it and you delay your doctor’s visit and whatnot. But also, you know, taking care and going for a walk and all those things are, you know, inculcate this healthy habits in you, so, it makes you calmer, more peaceful, more happy, more satisfied, it makes you do a little bit of exercising, taking care of the pet, but it can also tell you that, while you’re taking care of your pet, maybe you ought to take care of yourself as well. Question: Were there any funny or interesting stories that you would like to share from the set or that happened during filming? This was the very first time I’m doing this, this is the very first time I’m doing something with a dog, so I actually didn’t know what was the norm. So, it’s not like I was walking wrong, but they took a lot of shots, like some from close-up’s, some sort of from far back and some the dog was not walking straight or whatever. So, we were on like the fifth or the sixth take and Keith came over to me and is like: ‘What’s wrong with you? You don’t know how to walk?’ So, I’m like: ‘Fine, he can make fun of me’ It turns out, like an hour later, we had to scene where he had to throw a frisbee and the dog had to run and catch the frisbee. And we had to take like 20 shots, because once, you know, the frisbee would go in this direction and that direction and that was the perfect moment for me to say: ‘What, you can’t throw a frisbee?’ So, that was sort of an interesting, sort of a jab, but I think my most favourite part was actually interacting with the dogs, and sort of getting to develop that bond. I’ve never had that experience before.
