It is so sad that someone like Scarlett Johansen is mocked on a blog. I think she looks pretty good, great even.

I used to be a faithful watcher of Dr. Oz's show. More and more stuff that has been presented on the show doesn't seem to pan out.

Now, I watch occasionally and then do research on whatever claim is made.

"The jury is still out on those, they are not permanent changes, and quackery is involved, including Dr. Oz himself, or his "companies" that he owns shares in."

Dr. Anything For A Buck Oz.

Sigh. He ought to be ashamed of himself....but I guess he's too busy counting his money to care.

The more desperate people tune in....the more money he rakes in via sponsors (commercials).

I wish it were possible to pull his medical license.

My mom has bought almost every "miracle" weight loss thing he has promoted. You know....cause he's a doctor, yeah?

If I met him in person, I'd slap the ever loving crap outta him - and ask him if he knows a natural remedy for black eyes.



The best exercise in the world is to bend down and help someone up.

I saw the same show and to be honest I tried 2 of the 3 methods....

1. Seaweed Scrub....I did this every morning faithfully for almost 2 weeks and saw no real results...It actually got me frustrated and stopped doing it...

2. I ate pineapple 3 times a day and still no results...I love dr.oz but I sometimes really wonder if it is the truth what he preaches....

3. I just got liposuction done 1 week ago and right now pretty swollen so I don't see any results just yet but I hope to see them soon....a lot of pain so there be a difference...:)

I don't watch Dr. Oz. To me, it's a bunch of whatever the latest crap is, for weight loss. He sold out a long time ago, and whatever common sense and medical knowledge he had at one time-- is totally gone now, in favor of whatever attracts viewers and therefore, money.

My two cents:

90% of women have cellulite. It's not a deformity to be fixed - it's a pretty common characteristic of being female.

Cellulite doesn't care if you're fat or thin - some overweight women have none, some very thin women have lots.

I wish women would stop wasting their time, energy, and money on these things.

This is what Mayo Clinic has to say about cellulite and various treatments.


Cellulite is caused by fibrous connective cords that tether the skin to the underlying muscle, with the fat lying between. As fat cells accumulate, they push up against the skin, while the long, tough cords pull down. This creates an uneven surface or dimpling.


Treatments and drugs
By Mayo Clinic Staff


Weight loss

Weight loss — through healthy eating and regular exercise — is probably the most beneficial cellulite treatment. Losing pounds and strengthening muscles in your legs, thighs, buttocks and abdomen can improve the appearance of the dimpled skin. The benefits of weight loss alone are limited, however. Though the cellulite may be less noticeable after weight loss, it won't go away completely.

Lasers and radiofrequency systems

Perhaps the most promising medical therapy is one that uses lasers and radiofrequency systems. One system combines tissue massage, radiofrequency technology and infrared light to treat cellulite. Another system delivers combined tissue massage with diode laser energy. A third system uses radiofrequency at deep and superficial levels simultaneously to treat cellulite. All three systems offer improvements to cellulite after a series of treatments. Results may last up to six months.

Liposuction

Some people may turn to liposuction as a treatment for cellulite. During liposuction, a surgeon inserts a narrow tube under your skin through tiny incisions and then suctions out fat cells. Though liposuction can shape the body, it won't remove cellulite, and it may make the cellulite appear worse. Laser-assisted liposuction is a newer, less invasive form of this treatment that destroys fat cells while tightening the skin and may be a more effective treatment for cellulite.

Topical treatment

A twice daily application of 0.3 percent retinol cream has been shown to improve the appearance of cellulite after six months.


Alternative medicine
By Mayo Clinic Staff


Many devices, products and creams claim to treat cellulite. But there is little or no scientific evidence to support these claims. If you do find a cellulite treatment that improves your skin, the results aren't likely to last long.

The following are a few of the many advertised cellulite treatments. Keep in mind that these treatments haven't been proved effective in removing cellulite.

•Vigorous massage. Some cellulite treatments are based on the concept that vigorous massage will increase blood flow, remove toxins and reduce excess fluid in cellulite-prone areas. One method in particular, Endermologie (also referred to as Lipomassage), uses a hand-held machine to knead the skin between rollers. You may notice a slight improvement to your skin after this treatment, but the results are typically short-lived.

•Mesotherapy. This procedure involves injecting a solution — which may contain a combination of aminophylline, hormones, enzymes, herbal extracts, vitamins and minerals — under the skin. This treatment can cause several unwanted effects, including infection, rashes, and bumpy or uneven skin contours.

•Cellulite creams. Creams that contain a variety of ingredients, such as vitamins, minerals, herbal extracts and antioxidants, are often marketed as the cure for cellulite. But no studies show that these creams used by themselves offer any improvement. In some cases, the ingredients in these products cause skin reactions or rashes.

I would never watch Dr Oz. http://www.hcs.harvard.edu/~policylab/2013/06/14/pulling-back-the-curtain-on-dr-oz/
He reminds me of Cosmo magazine and the like. After reading it, you feel like you need to be improved. If I want to wear shorts, I'm not worried about cellulite. i'll wear shorts. I feel for people who won't because they don't want their legs to show. I am so glad my legs work! They don't have to be sexy. They just have to get me on hikes.

Cellulite IS very hard to beat....

I would take the Dr Oz thing with a grain of salt.

cellulite-scrub

I was watching Dr Oz today and he had 3 women who tried 3 different methods of seeing results with their cellulite and I thought I'd pass this along one was the sea weed scrubb , they showed before and after pics and it was amazing!!!!
These women only used these 3 different techniques for 5 days and saw dramatic results, one lady said she hadn't worn shorts in years and will this summer.
number 2. was eating pineapple 3 times a day , I was shocked to see the change in this girls legs, it was unbelievable ...
3. this lady used some hand held suction massager this was the one the lady used and said now she can wear shorts all 3 had dramatic changes, the one that used the suction massager said it was a lot of work but that she'd keep it up cause of the dramatic results I mean it was really a clear difference in all 3 before and after photos...

Starting to like the new me!
Waiting for my garden to come to life!
