Dr Oz: Holistic Remedies
Dr Oz discussed a few Alternative Medicine Remedies. In this segment, Doctor Oz brought up Lauren and Jason, a couple that had been married for 6 years. Lauren stated that she wasn’t too keen on taking drugs, such as antibiotics, because she feared building up a tolerance to them. Her husband, Jason, stated that he had no problems taking drugs. While he didn’t necessarily believe the packaging claims, he was always willing to try something. In the end, the couple wanted to know what alternative remedies they should and should not try.
Dr Oz: Ear Candling is Dangerous
Ear Candling- This remedy to clear out earwax has become quite popular in recent months. To do this, you are to place a candle in the ear, light the candle and as it burns, it is supposed to suck out the wax. But does this really work and should you bother spending your hard-earned money on this product?
Dr Oz Suggestion: SKIP IT! Dr Oz says it’s normal for the ear to produce wax so this product isn’t really necessary. Not only does Dr Oz NOT believe this product works, he believes that it is dangerous. Anytime you are using fire, you run the risk of burns, especially in this case because of the dripping wax.
Dr Oz: Ginkgo Biloba Holistic Remedy
Ginkgo Biloba- Jason wanted to know about this product because it claimed it was good for memory retention and energy. Should he try it or skip it?
Dr Oz Suggestion: TRY IT! Dr Oz stated that this product has been used for over 50 years and even longer in certain areas. Studies show that it slows down dementia and stimulates blood flow to the brain. Dosing is the key. To get the maximum results, start with 240 mg per day. You can then work your way up to 600 mg per day.
