How to Have Sunshine All the Time!

Many people have told me that I bring a ray of sunshine wherever I go. I’ve learned that shining bright like the sun can come naturally if you put yourself first by eating right, exercising and meditating. Dr. Oz has taught me so much and I want to share 3 of the life-changing lessons he has taught me.

  • Eating Right is not only good for your health, but it's also good for your mind, body and spirit. Eating right gives you the energy that your body craves.
  • Exercise rids your body of unwanted fat and stress. It is also one of the best natural medications you can give yourself!
  • Meditation, even if only for 20 minutes per day, gives you the time to unwind, focus on your breathing and truly connect with your inner self.

I live by these 3 things and by doing so I have become a stronger, healthier and better person than I've ever been. I believe we all have the power or magic within us to achieve what I have and more.


I feel peaceful as I sit here watching the sunrise this morning over the water at my new home in Florida. That is something that if you asked me 5 years ago, I would have never thought I could achieve. I feel so alive and so good. For that, I'm thankful.

All my healthy choices have set the inner me free. I want to spend as much time as I can helping others achieve what I have.

My name is Jennifer Lynn Reopell Szall and I'm an average American woman who craved change! I went from being overweight, miserable and unhealthy to being thin, extremely happy and healthy by following Dr. Oz's advice. I have become who I wanted to be. I love bringing sunshine with me wherever I go, because it feels so good to be this happy and I want to share it with others. If I can do this, you most certainly can, too. Why wouldn't you? Bring on the sunshine, baby, because once you get there, you'll never look back. Always do what's best for you and everything else will fall into place. Don't be afraid to change and don't let the judges and critics in life hold you back. Set yourself free!

Your Parent Has Dementia: What to Talk to Their Doctor About

Make sure all their doctors are aware of all the medications she is taking.

Q: My mom is 94 and has dementia. She is taking a whole medicine cabinet-full of medications and I think they actually make her fuzzier. How should I talk to her various doctors about what she is taking and if she can get off some of the meds? — Gary R., Denver, Colorado

A: Many dementia patients are taking what docs call a "polypharmacy" — three or more medications that affect their central nervous system. And we really don't know how that mixture truly affects each individual person.

A new study in JAMA Network that looked at more than 1 million Medicare patients found almost 14% of them were taking a potentially harmful mix of antidepressants, antipsychotics, antiepileptics, benzodiazepines such as Valium and Ativan, nonbenzodiazepine benzodiazepine receptor agonist hypnotics such as Ambien or Sonata, and opioids. And almost a third of those folks were taking five or more such medications. The most common medication combination included an antidepressant, an antiepileptic, and an antipsychotic. Gabapentin was the most common medication — often for off-label uses, such as to ease chronic pain or treat psychiatric disorders, according to the researchers from the University of Michigan.
