Dr Oz: Daily Supplement Addiction

Dr Oz met Joanne, a mom with a supplement addiction who takes 17 vitamins and supplements every day. He invited addiction specialist Dr Mike Dow, author of Diet Rehab, to help her come up with a plan to get on a new path.

Joanne admitted that part of her habit is about control, which Dr Mike Dow told Dr Oz is a common trait of addiction. “Addictions are rooted in fear and control,” he said. Seeking out a crutch is normal human behavior. Supplements can be good in moderation, but 17 is too many.
