The Dr. Oz Show covers health topics in a general way in an effort to educate viewers. The show however, is not medical advice for individuals nor should any part of the show be perceived as a substitute for treatment provided by medical professionals or conversations with your personal physician. The Dr. Oz Show also examines topics in medicine that are new, unusual, and often breakthrough or cutting edge. Some of these topics are theoretical in nature, or have not been adopted into mainstream use. Please never make any decisions about your health without speaking to a doctor. Editorial discussions should never be taken as individual medical advice.
