Dr Oz: Complete Body Restart
Dr Oz shared his ideas for a total body reset on the show, with his advice for Heart Health, Thyroid Check, and Liver Detox. Next, he looked at your rumbling guts as a source for health advice. Learn the difference between Prebiotics Vs Probiotics and how to get more healthy choices in your diet.
Women complained that they look and feel pregnant or have trouble digesting their food, causing bloating, cramping, and other problems. So what’s the deal? Dr Oz talked with three women from the audience to explain that this isn’t normal and you don’t have to live with these issues.
The three women got to stretch an intestine across the stage with Dr Oz. He didn’t pull any punches, noting that all these feet of organs are holding poop trapped inside the body. Food should move smoothly through the body, but stress can slow the process.
Dr Oz: Intestinal Blackout
Family and work stress can actually short circuit your intestines, causing an Intestinal Blackout with Bloating, Constipation, and Diarrhea among the symptoms. The intestines can tie knots in themselves, but this can also be undone.
“Remarkably, they’re able to come back and be what they used to be,” he said.

Dr Oz: Organ Search & Transport
Finally, Dr Oz took us behind the scenes to show how he and a team of medical students worked together to collect enough organs for the entire audience to hold in this episode. They coordinated with Dr Oz’s hospital to collect and catalog the organs and match them with audience members.
The organs had to be packed and kept in coolers for transport, where they were stored overnight. Then they were gently unpacked and distributed to the Dr Oz audience. That’s a pretty cool story. How many of us can say we got the chance to hold a human organ?
