Doctor Oz answered the questions we are too embarrassed to ask on the Dr Oz Show today, plus his wife Lisa Oz joined the show AND he revealed the new miracle berry that helps you lose weight: the sea buckthorn berry.
I have faithfully written down all the embarrassing questions and their answers, and those are at the end of this Dr. Oz Show Recap, because really, I was more excited about the new Miracle Berry and seeing Dr. Oz’s wife! I’ll cover those first, then put in the questions and answers.
The New Miracle Berry to Help You Lose Weight!
Dr. Oz revealed that the Sea Buckthorn Berry is the new miracle berry and he calls it a Super Fruit because of all its health benefits. They’re a little tart but not bad, said the assistant. It contains an Omega-7 fat called palmitoleic acid and it can help you lose weight! It signals the body to stop storing fat.
Dr. Oz says we can get all the weight loss benefits of sea buckthorn berries by drinking sea buckthorn juice, and he said it’s easy to find (but it seems a little expensive!)
Sea buckthorn oil also helps keep your mucus membranes stay lubricated and helps relieve constipation. You can take one 500mg sea buckthorn softgel daily.
Sea buckthorn oil is also great for your skin, and has been touted as a remedy for rosacea even. Just apply the sea buckthorn oil topically to your face as part of your daily beauty routine.
Lisa Oz’s Relationship Diet
Dr. Oz’s wife Lisa joined the show today to share her secrets for a great relationship with your significant other. Lisa Oz says just like a diet you can’t sit back and do nothing and expect results, so here’s her action plan.
1. Cut out the junk food. Get rid of the desire to control your spouse. Get rid of judgment and blame. Get rid of the need to be right.
2. Take daily relationship vitamins. Vitamin “A” is Appreciation; don’t take your partner for granted and remember to focus on what you love about him. Vitamin “B” is Being Present. Get rid of the phone, Blackberry and TV…get connected. Vitamin “C” is Commitment to Change. Don’t cling to old patterns, be open to growth.
3. Exercise. Practice talking to each other using “I feel” statements so that you’re not blaming each other but you are revealing your inner feelings.
Lisa Oz has written a book called “Us” which full of more of her relationship advice.
All About Vitamin C
- The average woman should consume at least 75 milligrams of Vitamin C daily.
- Vitamin C helps your body absorb nutrients like iron. The breakfast that packs the most punch is oatmeal and strawberries.
- A diet rich in Vitamin C can help reduce the risk of urinary tract infections.
Most Embarrassing Questions
Question: I get extremely sweaty suddenly out of the blue, especially under the left armpit. I’m worried about the wetness and odor, what can I do? Dr. Oz said it sounds like hyperhidrosis, which is where the sweat glands produce more sweat than they can release gradually, so they just let it all out. 3% of the population has this condition, but under 40% of people with this condition seek medical help. Get the extra- or clinical-strength antiperspirant over the counter, or ask your doctor for a prescription. Injecting Botox can help, or there is a surgery they can do to stop excessive sweating in the hands.
Question: I really enjoy my wine but lately it’s making me really gassy (burping and flatulence). The odor is tolerable, not toxic so Dr. Oz says that her body is processing the sugar differently. This is happening with red wine. The bacterial content of your guts changes throughout your life, and Dr. Oz recommends taking probiotics, such as eating yogurt that contains live cultures. If that doesn’t work try switching to vodka (I can’t believe Dr. Oz said that!)
Question: why do I have hair on my chest and how do I get rid of it? Dr. Oz says that if your monthly cycle is abnormal and there is excessive hair growth on the body, especially where you don’t normally get hair, then it could be a sign of polycystic ovarian disease. This is where the ovaries stop being able to release the eggs and they form cysts. See your doctor.
