Dr. Oz: THE #1 Health Guru in America

Health guru Dr Oz on The James Altucher Show

Episode 313: Health Guru

Dr. Oz. He sounds like a superhero, right?

In some ways, I feel like he is actually a superhero.

I love his philosophy of connecting the patient directly with the resources to help themselves.

He’s removing the gatekeeper.

And he’s bringing us back to our roots.

I think over the past hundred years there’s been a separation between food being something we eat as opposed to food as fuel.

Food as medicine and as the way our body lives, thinks, grows and fights for our health.

I just turned 50. And I feel like I’m in the best health of my life.

And this is because I changed my nutrition and the foods I eat.

I felt lucky because when I was reading Dr. Oz’s newest book, “Food Can Fix It: The Superfood Switch to Fight Fat, Defy Aging and Eat Your Way Healthy”, I kept seeing all the same practices I do in my own life.

Some things I don’t do. But I do most of it.

I switched my diet to a lot of the things he recommends.

So I was so excited to have him on the podcast.  

This information is so valuable. And I think society has forgotten these simple steps and routines to give your body the nutrition and fuel it needs.

“Over the last decade there’s been a gargantuan advance in the ability of science to tell you why your mom was right. To underline and emphasize why certain foods make a big difference to pain, depression, mental cognition, your heart, cancer risk and all these other things including your weight that historically we thought were true, but didn’t know why,” Dr. Oz said.

Science is proving food is medicine.

Dr. Oz and I discuss better brain function, energy, sugar and daily routines.

And once you start to adopt these practices, you’ll definitely notice a difference.

But like I always say to change a habit, you need to give it 21 days.

“You begin to appreciate the majesty of the body, how spectacularly it functions when it’s given the right kinds of nutrients then you begin to appreciate the power of food to fix it.”

So let’s start fixing.

    I’m going to listen. I listen to all your podcast even if only for 5 or 10 minutes and then I decide the person is an idiot and I stop. You know how that goes. I listen to Dov Davidoff and Todd Barry in their entirety even though I did not enjoy them very much at all. They weren’t funny. And they didn’t seem to be enjoying their lives either.

  • Angela Erdstrom

    Unfortunately, Dr Oz is a huge supporter of forced male genital mutilation of infants and children. He’s bogus.

    • AdminBro

      I am curious Angela, how a differing belief system negates all the great information he shares ? Because you don’t agree with one thing, or even a couple of things he believes? Isn’t that kind of a closed minded attitude? I’m not saying you are, just that the attitude you put forth in your statement, gives that impression.

      • Angela Erdstrom

        LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL!!! Differing belief system??? Yeah, like Jumama Nagarwala simply has a “differing belief system.” If Oz kicked puppies and set kittens on fire, you would probably object to that, but promoting genital mutiation of children is okey-dokey.

      I think much less of Altucher for not properly vetting Oz first.

      • LessonsLearnedAbroad

        Agreed. Disappointed to see Oz here. Hate to say it, but I expected more from Altucher.

        • TheJoeGreene

          I don’t. Altucher parades one woo monster after another out there. He’s a conspiracy theorist at heart.
