Dr. Oz Talks About The Connection Between Your Health & Body Type [AUDIO]
On “Body Type” Medicine:
“What the Indians and Ayurvedic medicine have done is figure out that there are 3 basic kinds of humans and then look for different kinds of solutions. If you have extra weight on board, and you are different kind of body type, they give you different kinds of solutions,” Dr. Oz explains. “These people are getting healthy from all kinds of common ailments that we are applied with, problems with weight gain, with energy, with libido.”
On The Future of Medicine:
“The future of medicine, without any question, is customizing care. We know that at least 20-25 percent of the time when we give you a medication it’s the wrong medication for you. But we don’t know how to customize care, because we don’t know enough about your genes to tell you that,” says Dr. Oz.
On Why Viruses Don’t Affect Everyone:
“One of the biggest reasons why I think some people get sick and others don’t is because the bacteria in our gut. We’ve got 10 times more bacteria in our gut than cells in our body and a lot of those bacteria are there as peace keepers. They’re there to help you out, to make sure that nothing gets into your system and to keep your immune system strong and if that get thrown out of whack, it’s very difficult for your body to keep up with new attacks.”
“The Dr. Oz Show” is on Monday through Friday at 3pm on ABC in Los Angeles (check your local listings).
