The Dr. Oz Show

Did you watch the premier yesterday? I'm a fan of Dr. Oz from watching him on Oprah and was looking forward to checking out his new show. I just finished watching the first show (I heart my DVR) and I must say that I am impressed. As you may or may not know, I don't watch much daytime TV. I do record Oprah and catch up with CNN when Rob comes home for lunch but this show is definitely worth a look.

While there was way too much information packed into the time allotted, Dr. Oz said the "magic words" during several segments. First, he talked about how unhealthy fast food is and encouraged his viewers to make better choices. BING! Second, he spoke about managing fibroids with certain foods, supplements and a healthy lifestyle rather than jumping right into having a hysterectomy. BING BING! And lastly, when an audience member wanted to know what to do about her possible anemia, he told her many of the iron-rich foods that she should add to her daily meals to improve her iron levels. BING BING BING!

Imagine, a doctor telling the masses to help themselves and their health issues by doing research and adopting a healthy lifestyle and stressing importance of PREVENTION. I love it! This is important information that everyone needs to take seriously. Of course, there are issues that require medical intervention but people, taking care of your body now can prevent having to resort to medical care in the future. This is the sort of health care reform we need in this country.


  1. Agreed. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

  2. That sounds awesome! He goes against the grain of what so many doctors are like .... medicate, medicate, medicate ... I love that he really gets into "real" health, instead of just doing promotions for the drug companies! (And that's my rant, lol!)
