Dr. Oz and Dr. Kulreet Chaudhary Talk About Ayurvedic Juice Cleanses To Promote Healing and Reduce Inflammation

Ayurvedic medicine has been used for centuries to promote healing, detox the body and cure illness and disease.  Dr. Oz has spoken about Ayurvedic medicine and the 3 Dosha Types in the past and how you can improve your health according to what body type you have.  During today’s (Aprill 22, 2014) show Dr. Oz and Dr. Kulreet Chaudhary shared 3 juice cleanses that will help to heal your body.

3 Ayurvedic Dosha Types

  • Kapha : These dosha types generally have a heavy build, slow digestion and are more prone to have allergy and weight gain issues.
  • Pitta : This is a warm body type.  Pitta’s are goal oriented people.  Skin rashes and heartburn can be a problem with this dosha type.
  • Vata : Usually slender, full of energy and creative types.  Health conditions that Vata’s are prone to are worry, brain fog and constipation.

“Flush Your Toxins” Juice Cleanse for Kapha’s

Ayurvedic Juice Cleanses for detoxing and healing the body.

Dr. Chaudhary explained that even though we all are exposed to toxins on a daily basis, our Dosha type determines how our body reacts to the toxins.  The Kapha type is prone to accumulate toxins and this often leads to gaining weight.  This is why a juice cleanse to flush your toxins is so important..  Here is the recipe that was shared on today’s Dr. Oz :

  • 2 Apples
  • 1/2 medium red cabbage
  • 1/2 lemon

Mix the ingredients noted above and enjoy this delicious smoothie while flushing toxins from your body at the same time.

Reducing Body Inflammation Cleanse

Body inflammation reducing cleanses are excellent for Pitta dosha types.  Here is the recipe that Dr. Chaudhary shared :

  • 3 cups of diced watermelon
  • 1 English cucumber (medium sized)
  • Pinch of cinnamon

Blend into a smoothie and enjoy the inflammation reducing juice cleanse.

Skin Smoothie For Vatta Dosha Types

Dr. Chaudhary said that Vatta’s usually don’t need to lose weight because they tend to be slender.  However, a juice cleanse that has healthy fats and more calories is good for your skin.  Here is the recipe :

  • 10 Oz almond milk
  • 1/2 Avocado
  • 1 cup of cooked sweet potatoes
  • 1 tsp Ginger (grated)

Mix the ingredients noted above and enjoy your “skin friendly” smoothie.

How long Should You Do A Juice Cleanse?

Dr. Chaudhary explained to Dr. Oz that if you haven’t did juice cleanses before or if it has been awhile you should start slowly.  Try adding one of the juice cleanses in place of one meal during your day for 21 days.  Dr. Chaudhary recommended replacing your dinner meal because this is the best detox time.  She said that Vata dosha types should only do a cleanse for 7 days because they have thinner body types and are less likely needing to lose weight.

Dr. Oz Talks About Cases of Measles, Whooping Cough (Pertussis), and a Paralyzing Polio Like Virus Outbreak

measles vaccinations, whooping cough vaccinations

Are you fully vaccinated to protect against diseases like the Measles and Whooping Cough?

Dr. Oz opened up his April 22, 2014 show in an alarming fashion.  Dr. Oz was alerting his viewers about new cases of Measles, Whooping Cough (Pertussis), and a a virus similar to Polio that is paralyzing people (mostly children) all across the United States.  These diseases were once thought to be eradicated are making a comeback.  Are the vaccinations no longer working?  Should we get vaccinated again?  Dr. Oz talked about this and more during the episode.

84 Measles Cases in 11 States

In the past 8 weeks cases of Measles has been on the rise.  It worries Dr. Oz because Measles is one of the most contagious diseases known in history.  For the past 20 years it was thought that Measles was nearly wiped out in the U.S. but now there is once again a reason to be concerned.  Dr. Oz said that Measles vaccination is very important for children and adults because if you come in contact with the virus there is a 90% chance that you will get it!

Signs and Symptoms of Measles

Dr. Oz admitted that he didn’t know what to look for because he had never seen a case before and it was thought to be nearly eradicated in the US.  Upon this outbreak, Dr. Oz did some research so he would be educated on what all the signs and symptoms are for the early stages of measles.

  • Runny nose
  • High fever
  • A rash that begins behind the ears and will spread all over the body

Dr. Oz said that what worries him the most is that you can’t treat the disease once you get it..  It has to run it’s course and you can only treat the side effects… So what are the dangerous complications and side effects from the Measles?

Possible Complications and Side Effects from the Measles :

  • 1/3 of the people who get the Measles will need to be hospitalized
  • Measles can lead to blindness, pneumonia, meningitis, deafness, and death.

Dr. Oz said that if you are an adult and unsure if you are fully vaccinated the best way to prevent contracting the Measles virus is to get vaccinated.  All children should be vaccinated.

50,000 Cases of Whooping Cough Diagnosed in 2013

With 50,000 people coming down with Whooping Cough (Pertussis) the public should be aware of this disease making a comeback on our society.  Here are some frightening facts that were give on todays 4-22-2014 Dr. Oz

  • 50,000 cases of Whooping cough diagnosed last year in 2013
  • Adults are getting Whooping cough as well as children
  • Immunization isn’t as potent as other vaccinations
  • If you are over 65 you should get vaccinated for Whooping Cough

A Virus Similar To Polio Is Paralyzing Children In California

Polio may quite possibly be the most feared disease that this country has ever seen.  One of the greatest breakthroughs in medicine is when the polio vaccine was first developed by Jonas Salk..  However, there is a new “Polio-Like” virus that has Dr. Oz and the medical community worried.  This is a new disease and doctors are unsure of how to treat it.

Dr. Thornton explained that it’s hard to diagnose in the early stages because it simply starts out as a cold.  After just a few days it can lead to permanent paralysis.  The medical community is now working diligently to find out the cause of this new disease putting our children at risk.

The Mistakes That Vegetarians Make

There are many health benefits to being a vegetarian.  You will lower your risk for many cancers and lower your blood pressure for instance.  However, some vegetarians actually gain weight because they are making the wrong food choices.  Here are some of the reasons why vegetarians gain weight :

  • Eat too many carbs – This is a common mistake made by vegetarians.  Eating too many carbs without enough protein will spice your blood sugar and increase stress hormones in your body.  This can increase fat in your belly area.  Dr. Oz suggests eating more lentils, quinoa, hemp seeds, almonds, and Greek yogurt in place of foods that are high in carbs.
  • Eating too much processed foods – Packaged foods that have been highly processed are generally loaded with calories, fat and sodium.  Cut down on your processed foods by eating no more than 3 packaged meals each week.  Also try to eat 1 cup of veggies with each packaged meal that you consume during the weak.  Look for whole grains on the label.
  • Eating too much cheese – Cheese is high in fat and calories as well.  However, some cheeses are healthier than others.  Swap in feta and goat cheese in place of higher fat/calorie cheeses.

Dr. Oz and Dr. Joel Fuhman Discusses Diet Lies – Is Exercise Needed For Weight Loss? Does Olive Oil Make You Fat?

cheat days on a diet

“Cheat Diets” can put you back at square one and trigger a food binge that can last for days.

Today Dr. Oz was talkking to Dr. Joel Fuhrman about Diet myths and lies that are making your fat.  During this segment Dr. Oz and Dr. Fuhrman discussed “cheat days” and if they are ok in a diet plan.  They also spoke about the fat in olive oil and if exercise is really needed if you are trying to lose weight.

Olive Oil Is Stored As Fat

Dr. Joel Fuhrman said that when you consume oil it is almost immediately stored as fat.  He said that after it is stored as fat in your body it makes it harder to burn off.  So, instead of cooking with olive oil he recommends that you get your healthy fats from seeds and nuts.  So, what should you use in place of olive oil?  Dr. Fuhrman suggested :

  • Cook with tomato sauce in place of oil
  • Use water and spices in place of oil

Dr. Joel Fuhrman said that “food fat” isn’t stored as fat as quickly as oil because it goes through your body at a faster rate and it is flushed out of your body. Healthy “Food Fat” also has the added benefit of boosting your energy.

Do You Need To Exercise To Lose Weight?

Dr. Fuhrman said that another diet lie that you can discard is that you have to exercise in order to lose weight.  Dr. Joel Fuhrman said that exercising will increase your appetite and cause you to eat more.  This will cause your insulin to raise.  He said that you should be focusing on losing weight by what you  are making in the kitchen.  However, exercise is very important for gaining muscle as well as increasing your longevity.  But to say that it is needed to lose weight is a myth.

Are “Cheat Days” Ok When Your Dieting?

There are some new diets trending that encourage people to have a cheat day once a week.  Dr. Fuhrman explained to Dr. Oz and the viewers that this is a diet trap.  He says that when have a “cheat day” it puts you back at square one and then puts you at jeopardy of overeating or binging for several days after.  You will have more cravings.  This also may cause you to fall into the yo-yo dieting trap which isn’t good for you.

Dr. Oz Talks About Diet Lies That Make You Fat – Eating 6 Meals A Day Is A Dieting Myth

Today (April 21, 2014) Dr. Oz was talking about the biggest dieting lies that people fall for as they attempt to lose weight.   The first dieting myth is that eating 6 meals a day will rev up your metabolism to help you lose weight.  Dr. Oz and Dr. Joel Fuhrman also talk about some of the weight loss philosophies that Dr. Fuhrman writes about in his book “The End of Dieting” and how simple losing weight can actually be.

The End of Dieting Book

Dr. Oz conducted a poll in which he asked the question if people believed most of the diet lies that they have been told.  The vast majority of the respondents do believe the diet myths.  Dr. Joel Fuhrman explained some of the philosophies that are in his book, “The End of Dieting” about why diets are all about what will sell the best rather than what works.  Dr. Fuhrman said that most of the trending diets that are out there are more about what will sell the best rather than helping people to lose weight, improve their health and longevity.  The good news is that you never have to diet again to lose weight!

Diet Myth – Eating 6 Meals A Day Is Better Than Just 3

Eating 3 meals a day helps you to lose weight more effectively than eating 6 smaller meals per day.

Dr. Fuhrman explained to Dr. Oz and the audience that eating 3 meals a day is the best way to lose weight.  He said that the popular myth of eating 5 or 6 small meals a day is a lie and can make you fatter.  He said that when you are constantly eating throughout the day your body never has enough time to burn through the fat stores. Eating so frequently will build up the amount of sugar that is in your liver.  Dr. Fuhrman recommends that you shouldn’t eat more than 3 meals per day.  He also doesn’t feel that you should be snacking in between meals.  Here is a typical day’s dieting protocol under Dr. Fuhrman’s weight loss and better health philosophy :

  • Breakfast : Apple pie oatmeal with flax and cinnamon mixed in
  • Lunch : Big salad
  • Dinner : Eat lean meats with lots of greens

Dr. Fuhrman said that under his plan you don’t need to be counting your calories at all!  In fact, he said you can eat as many calories as you want with each (healthy) meal.  You just have to be sure not to eat anything between meals so your body has a chance to burn through it’s fat stores.
