Doctor Oz did a show for men called The Man Show. Dr Oz covered everything your man knows and does not know about his body and the woman’s body. Dr Oz took a look at the male psyche to discover what men know about the 4 most common health problems women have: menopause, heart attacks and breast cancer. When you wake-up in the middle of the night with the sweats, does your husband know its from menopause? Do you feel like you have the flu and are tired all the time? Do you have a strange rash on your breast and think it might be breast cancer? Do you and your husband feel distant even though you sleep in the same bed? I would highly recommend discussing each of the following topics with your husband or boyfriend today!
Dr Oz took a poll of his audience and found that on a scale of 1 to 10, men think they are about a 7 with respect to how much they know about their wife’s body. When women were asked how much they thought their husbands knew about their body, the poll said the men got a 1. Oh boy! Dr Oz was joined by Dr Jennifer Ashton and Dr Deborah Axelrod to discuss the four hidden health issues in women.
4 Hidden Health Issues in Women
Dr Oz brought Vincent up from the audience and had him dress up in a full body suit with a jacket on top and then misted his face with water. The other clue was that over the age of 40, these symptoms are pretty normal. Vincent said he felt confined, sweaty, very warm and clammy – just like how a woman feels when she goes through menopause!
Symptoms of Menopause
Dr Oz said that the symptoms of menopause include hot flashes, clammy feeling, headaches, mood changes, insomnia, depression, breast tenderness, weight gain around the center of the body and irregular bleeding. Dr Jennifer Ashton said that it is a head to toe transformation and every woman has her own experiences and her own symptoms.
Spotting a Heart Attack
Dr Oz brought Sean up from the audience to see if he knew which signs were signs of heart attacks in women versus signs of a heart attack in a man. Dr Oz said that the number one sign for a heart attack in a man is chest pain. For women, the most typical signs for a heart attack include fatigue, shortness of breath, indigestion and vomiting.
Dr Oz was joined by Darrell from the audience to discuss Breast Cancer: the second leading cause of cancer deaths among women. Dr Deborah Axelrod said that some men have diagnosed their wife’s breast cancer through exploration. Axelrod said that 3/4 of lumps found are not cancer, but you should see a doctor anyway. Use the pads of your fingers and walk around the breast in a circular motion starting at the nipple.
