Dr. Oz is a heart doctor.
One day I saw him take the blood pressure of a guy who was on stage. The guy was obviously very nervous being on stage.
Dr. Oz found his BP was high and concluded that he had High Blood Pressure and needed to get to his doctor and get some medicine.
Okay, so this heart surgeon has never heard of people’s BP going up temporarily due to anxiety???? I think most MD’s learn that the first year.
His advice on herbs and diet is pretty useless, but also not really dangerous. I would seriously wonder about his advice on other issues, tho.
It’s standard practice for doctors to take BP in stressful situations, and then try to admit the patient to the emergency room. Maybe it shouldn’t be, but it is.
My BP goes up every time I’m in a doctor’s office. They constantly want to run tests for stuff they couldn’t cure if I had it, so I’m always wired up for an argument.
