Five element acupuncturist Kevin Durjun is to host a new weekly show on UK Health Radio.

Acupuncture Point will be broadcast at 2am (BST) on Thursday 28 June and then again on Friday 29 June at 6am, Saturday 30 June at 10am, Sunday 1 July at 2pm, Monday 2 July at 6pm and Tuesday 7 July at 10pm.

The upbeat and friendly show will explore the many different paths that can be taken to achieve good health on the level of mind, body and soul.

Kevin, who is also events manager at the British Acupuncture Council, will interview a wide range of people from practitioners to policymakers and will also provide health related updates, particularly in the field of complementary health.

He said: “I am really looking forward to hosting this weekly show. There will be plenty of Chinese medicine related content and I will also play some gorgeous music to uplift your soul and get your feet tapping with happiness.

“I am particularly interested in hearing inspirational stories about people’s life changes and life decisions – if you have something you would like to share please do get in touch.”

Kevin’s first show will feature an interview with British Acupuncture Council member Rachel Peckham, who set up an acupuncture clinic at a mosque in Ladbroke Grove, London, in the wake of the Grenfell Tower fire to help victims come to terms with the tragedy.

Since graduating from the School of Five Element Acupuncture (SOFEA) in 2005, Kevin has established a successful general acupuncture practice treating exclusively according to the principles of five element acupuncture.

He came to acupuncture after a successful career in theatre and radio. After graduating from the University of Sussex with a degree in experimental psychology, Kevin moved into radio. He started by producing and then swiftly progressed to presenting on a daily radio show.

But, although exciting to begin with, the parties and the glamour of radio did not fulfil him so, being a lifelong believer in the power of complementary medicine, he decided to retrain as an acupuncturist.

“How exciting to be returning to radio after all these years and to have the opportunity to communicate about the thing I love most – good health on the level of mind, body and spirit,” he said.

UK Health Radio was set up by 54-year-old Johann Ilgenfritz after he was diagnosed with terminal cancer. The former fashion photographer was given just a few months to live after traditional treatments failed. But a seven-month quest for a cure was successful and by changing his nutrition Ilgenfritz saved his own life.

“I felt I needed to give people in a similar situation the information that took me so long to find,” he said. “So I created UK Health Radio as a portal to give people all the options they need.”
