Dr. Oz: Importance of Taking Aspirin
Dr. Oz talked on his show about the three things everyone ought to have in their medicine cabinet. He welcomed Bambi, who brought her medicine cabinet. Dr. Oz said that she should have Aspirin in her cabinet. He asked her if she uses it at all. She said her Pappy was 94 and she made sure he takes it every day. He was in the audience and coming to the show was on his bucket list.
“Woman over 55 ought to probably be on aspirin,” Dr. Oz said. He encouraged her to start taking it. If this advice confuses you, you’re not alone. Dr. Oz just did an episode highlighting the risks of taking aspirin and discussing who should be taking it. While it does have many benefits, it also has risks that are important to consider. I’d weight it carefully.
Dr. Oz: Baking Soda as an Antacid
The next woman had an overflowing medicine cabinet. She said she loves her products and if there’s a good sale, she’ll buy stuff. Dr. Oz recommended baking soda as his second medicine cabinet must-have.
If you mix 1 tablespoon of baking soda with 8 ounces of warm water, it works as a great antacid. He said if you ever have acid reflex or indigestion after a big meal, it’s a great thing to try.
Dr. Oz: Aquaphor Review
Dr. Tanzi said Aquaphor works well to prevent dry skin, dry hands, dry feet, chapped lips, preventing diaper rash, and keeping the skin soft and supple. It works by giving the skin a layer of protection to reduce outside irritations, but it lets oxygen inside to stimulate healing. This makes it great for light wounds as well.
Susan in the audience suffers from dry feet and Dr. Oz asked her to put it on her feet for the past five days. She showed off her feet now and they looked great.
At the end of the segment, Dr. Oz announced that everyone in the audience got some Aquaphor.
