Dr Joe Mercola on the Dr Oz Show
Dr Oz’s July 5, 2012 show features an interview with Dr Joe Mercola, the Alternative Medicine Guru. Dr Joe Mercola told Doctor Oz why you should not trust your doctor. That must be a hard pill for Dr Oz to swallow since he is a practicing doctor! Dr Mercola also gave Dr Oz a list of Prescription Drugs You Should Not Take (this is definitely a list that you should share with everyone you know!). Dr Mercola told Dr Oz about some pretty crazy sounding ideas – like going to tanning beds in the winter to get enough Vitamin D rather than taking supplements. Really? We should go to tanning beds to get Vitamin D? What about the potential risk of getting skin cancer? Dr Mercola also told Dr Oz that he is not in favor of people getting the flu shot, but he suggests building up natural immunity overtime. The ironic thing is that Doctor Oz has promoted getting the flu shot on his show quite a few times. In fact, he has even taken the flu shot himself on the show. But apparently Dr Oz’s children do not get flu shots! Where do you stand on the issue? Do you get flu shots? Do you believe they work? Or do you think they cause more harm than good?

Feverfew Migraine Remedy
Dr Oz also did a segment on remedies including a Castor Oil Back Pain Remedy and a Feverfew Migraine Remedy. If you feel a migraine headache coming on, Doctor Oz said to take 125 mg of Feverfew right away and it will help minimize your discomfort. But the key is to take it right away! And if you suffer from back pain, you should consider doing castor oil wraps to help ease your pain. You can read more about both of these remedies at the following link: Castor Oil Back Remedy & Feverfew Headache Remedy.
Moxibustion Therapy & Bonito Peptides
Dr Oz also did a segment on natural health trends for 2012 that include Moxibustion Therapy, Moxy Spray, Bonito Peptides to lower blood pressure and Devil’s Claw for Arthritis. But among the most exciting to me were the Moxibustion Therapy and the Moxa Spray. What are these you might ask? Well, Moxibustion Therapy was an Ancient Chinese therapy that burned substances into your skin with acupuncture needles to help heal pain in your body. But now there is something called a Moxy Spray that you can use at home to help get rid of your pain just by spraying it on the area with pain and rubbing it in. Moxa Spray is also helpful for people who suffer from cramps.
