Charles Mattocks, host of Reversed and Eight Days is an award winning filmmaker and one of the few Black film and tv producers who owns the content he creates. His programs have aired on major TV networks such as WGN, PBS, Discovery and more.
Charles Mattocks has carved out an important niche. He has been creating health related content and TV since 2017. Mr. Mattocks and his team chose to move forward during this trying time to continue to highlight the importance of health and wellness through diet. During Covid, it is especially important for people who have underlying diseases to pay close attention to their diet. For everyone, a healthy and nutritious diet is also important when fending off Coronavirus.
Charles also owns and produced another series called Eight Days which was featured on the WGN America network. The new season of Reversed will air in September on the WGN America networks and re-air on COX Communications.
Production has been completed and will culminate into eight episodes that will be one hour each. They will showcase the Ketogenic Diet and intermittent fasting as a way to help treat people with underlying diseases with a focus on diabetes. After a few short days on keto, some of the guests were able to decrease their medications drastically and maintain normal blood sugar levels.
“We have lined up a dream team of health and wellness experts who will educate, inspire and help tell the stories of those living under harsh conditions and how to cope. We hope this will help give the show a voice and touch the millions of people who live with disease everyday,” says Charles.
The series will feature high profile experts as: Dr Jason Fung, Dr Ken Berry, Dr Lori Shemek, Karl Shallowhorn and Maria Emmerich as the show’s Keto chef. “Our understanding of how Type 2 Diabetes impacts all illness and disease is vital to reversing it. It is crucial we eliminate underlying health conditions such as type 2 diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure and more to promote a healthy and resilient immune response. These metabolic conditions have their roots in inflammation which is the core underlying cause of most illnesses, disease, faster aging and weight gain.
The ketogenic diet and intermittent fasting are both powerful tools to help reverse inflammation leading to protection from illness such as Covid-19 while promoting optimal health,” says Lori L. Shemek, PhD, CMC. Reversed is about the mental, physical and emotional healing of people. “We have brought some of the best in healthcare together to share ways of naturally healing the body. I hope after this season we can look at how the right lifestyles and exercise combined with what we eat and how we think, can play a role in improving our health,” adds Mattocks.
Charles has teamed up with some partners in keto and health to bring this project to life. Those partners include: Keto Mojo, Keto Chow, Carb Manager, ENERGYbits, Pork King Good, Select Savory Seasonings, Stevia Sweet BBQ, Redmond Life, Secco Wine Club, Ketonessa, Labin and Kilosophy.
Reversed has already locked in more seasons which will cover HIV and mental health. A talk show for the plus size community is also in pre production.
