UPDATE: June 16, 2016:   This 2009 post has been removed after I decided that I cannot in good conscience help in any way to promote physicians who recommend goofy therapies, remedies or unfortunate “miracle in a bottle!” cures (what the watchdog site Respectful Insolence has aptly described as “ranging from fairly pedestrian to pure quackery”).

To find out what Dr. Oz “evidence” is really all about, watch his compelling skewering at the hands of the astute U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill.

    I usually cringe when celeb docs issue these quickie lists, but everything here makes sense to me, especially coming from a cardiologist who knows his stuff. Thx.

    Thanks! Especially interesting: # #6: Rev up your exercise program: Aside from those daily walks, “You have to stress your heart with vigorous exercise at least twice a week for 30 minutes each session,” he reminds us. ’That means exercising at a revved-up rate ’til you’re somewhat out of breath.”
    # #7: Use music therapy and aromatherapy: In a recent Japanese study, when subjects inhaled the aroma of lavender, it reduced their blood levels of the “stress hormone,” cortisol, and increased blood circulation to the heart.
