Ask Dr. Oz Season 2: Post Op #26

Posted:

Audience member Anthony informs Dr. Oz that he has been suffering from ringing sounds in his ears for about 5 months.

Dr. Oz asks Anthony a couple questions and figures out that Anthony has Tinnitus. Dr. Oz explains the white noise and ringing that is Tinnitus is resulting from a factor that has damaged the ear(s). The most common causes of this damage usually results from environmental exposure and loud noises, and sometimes from growths in the ear canal(s).
Dr. Oz recommends that Anthony see a doctor who studies the sound process of the ear to see which diagnoses is there.

Audience member Jay informs Dr. Oz that he has Crohn’s disease (chronic inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract, linked to a problem with the body’s immune system response.)

Jay tells Dr. Oz that he has had two Crohn’s flare-ups in the past year, whereas previously, Jay didn’t have a flare-up for six years. Jay asks Dr. Oz what he should or should not do to correct this issue.

Dr. Oz explains that the medical world is not sure why Crohn’s happens, but they think it might be related to an infection in the intestines that is so subtle, it flairs up when the intestines are already bombarded by other factors that are stressing them. Dr. Oz explains that the stomach is a huge nerve center with a large amount of serotonin (neurotransmitters that regulate intestinal movements and regulation of food, appetite, sleep, muscle contraction, and other cognitive functions, including memory and sleep.)
Dr. Oz believes that a cure for this might possibly be found in our lifetime, but in the meantime, he recommends attempting to regulate this stress with a form of meditation.
