Ask Dr. Oz: Post Op #24

Posted:

An audience member asks Dr. Oz about her condition SVT (Supraventricular tachycardia – which is a rapid rhythm of the heart involving an accessory pathway. The pace-maker cells of the heart are unable to control the rhythm of the heart. Symptoms include shortness of breath, chest pain, rapid breathing, dizziness, loss of consciousness, and numbness in body parts at times). The audience member asks Dr. Oz if she should give up her water aerobics, due to the possibility that it might bring about an attack.

Dr. Oz discourages giving up physical activity, and he encourages finding an activity that doesn’t bring on SVT symptoms. Dr. Oz suggests taking a medication during the activity and/or with the combined supplements 500mg of magnesium and 1 gram of calcium to help decrease the symptoms of SVT.

Audience member Bruce has a sister (29 years old) that just got Gastritis. Bruce asks Dr. Oz what causes Gastritis. Dr. Oz states, in this case where Gastritis is stress-related, that the lining of the stomach is inflamed and damaged, and the esophageal walls can be eroded by acid from the stomach. Over-the-counter antacids are a common treatment for mild gastritis. Further investigation may be needed if symptoms do not subside with antacids alone.
