    Ask Dr. Oz Season 2: Post Op #24

    Audience member Laura tells Dr. Oz that she is trying to embrace the aging process with her husband (both ages 47 and 50) but they are starting to have a hard time remembering names.
    Audience member Laura tells Dr. Oz that she is trying to embrace the aging process with her husband (both ages 47 and 50) but they are starting to have a hard time remembering names.

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.

    A history classroom in the real world

    When Denis Belliveau is teaching kids about Marco Polo, he is in his element. He makes the explorer's journey come alive by taking students on a No. 7 train ride through Queens, New York's most diverse borough. He brings history alive for his students. Along the way the students stop in neighborhoods that mirror Polo's trip. I caught up with the class in Flushing, Queens, which easily resembles China.
