On 4 April 2010 AARP The Magazine reported:
Dr Mehmet Oz, renowned surgeon, television personality, and bestselling author, incorporates regular practice of the Transcendental Meditation Programme into his busy schedule. Dr Oz stars in his own syndicated national television show, performs surgery, organizes charitable programmes, and writes books on health.
It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring
fulfilment to the field of health.
He has 'seemingly boundless energy', the article states. Transcendental Meditation is one aspect of his own daily health care which includes yoga and a healthy diet of 'fruits and veggies, grains, and lean protein. (Raw nuts soaked in water, in the Turkish style, are a staple),' the article reports.
'Complementary therapies . . . have become a core part of his practice and show,' the article continues. Dr Oz advocates alternative medicine, which he tells AARP 'is not just another way of lowering your cholesterol. It's a very different way of thinking about the role of health in your life.'
'Whereas conventional medicine identifies ailments and attempts to fix them, he says, this alternative mindset seeks to prevent ill health from arising,' the article explains.
'Despair over his patients' poor health choices was the catalyst for Oz's eventual foray into broadcasting', AARP reports. Through television he could 'reach millions of people before they became heart patients by delivering diet and exercise advice through the media', the article states.
Dr Oz says in the article that 'it became progressively more frustrating to take people into the operating room when I knew they had created their own problems. If they'd known what to do differently, even a year or two earlier, they wouldn't have needed the operation.'
Dr Oz is also making an impact through 'HealthCorps, a nonprofit he founded to fight obesity and foster mental resilience among U.S. schoolchildren', the article reports, adding that 'students in HealthCorps schools are drinking less soda and exercising more, one study showed.'
'Another prong in Oz's attack on ill health is the series of bestsellers he writes with Michael Roizen, M.D., chair of the Cleveland Clinic's Wellness Institute,' the article continues. 'Starting with YOU: The Owner's Manual in 2005, Oz and Roizen have published six YOU books on various aspects of health.'
'Oz also advocates for healthful policies, testifying before Congress about how integrative medicine could help rein in health care costs,' the article reports. 'A Republican himself, Oz says no health care reform, whether from the left or the right, can succeed unless Americans transform their lifestyle to avoid the diabetes, heart disease, and other preventable ailments that cripple the country financially as well as physically.'
