Dr Oz: Women Over 40 Breakthrough Fixes
Dr Oz did a show called Breakthrough Fixes For Every Woman Over 40 to help deal with everything from weight gain to exhaustion to out-of-control hormones. Doctor Oz found simple solutions like Liquid Lash Extenders, a Trans-Vaginal Mesh Sling for Incontinence, the No No Hair Removal Device, an Infrared Heat Massager and Irvingia for weight loss. Dr Oz joined efforts with his Over 40 Task Force made up of Dr Laura Berman, Dr Evelyn Minaya, Tanya Edwards and Cynde Watson. Here are the details on these fabulous breakthrough fixes for Women Over 40 (and frankly, even women under 40 can benefit from quite a few of these items!).
Dr Oz: Trans-Vaginal Mesh Sling Procedure
Dr Evelyn Minaya has been an Obgyn for over a decade and said that Incontinence becomes a bigger problem as you age because of childbirth which changes your pelvic muscles, and of course weight gain also worsens Incontinence issues. Dr Oz said that 60% of women do not talk to their doctor about Incontinence problems, but you must get comfortable having these conversations.
Lori, a lady from Doctor Oz’s audience, said that she struggles with Incontinence and leaks everytime she sneezes or coughs, but she refuses to wear adult diapers. Dr Minaya said that there is a 15 Minute Sling Procedure called the Trans-Vaginal Mesh Sling. It is an In-Office Procedure that takes only 15 minutes and gives you the added tension that you need to not leak. And best of all, many insurance companies cover this procedure.
Dr Oz: Liquid Eyelash Extenders
Dr Oz’s next guest, Cynde Watson, covered the area of beauty products for women over 40. Watson said the biggest mistake people make as they age is to pile on more and more makeup, which just makes you look older. Instead, focus on making your eyes really pop by using a product like Liquid Lash Extensions. It is like having false eyelashes in a bottle. You just apply one coat of regular mascara, and then go over your lashes with the Liquid Lash Extenders and that adheres extra fibers to your eyelashes. So the empty spaces on your lashes get filled in for thick beautiful lashes. Cynde Watson said you could keep layering the Liquid Eyelash Extenders until you get your desired results. The model that she was testing the product out on looked absolutely amazing after using the Liquid Lash Extensions… it made such a huge difference!
Dr Oz: No No Hair Removal Device
Cynde Watson’s second piece of advice was to use a tool called the No No Hair Removal Device ($270), which replaces tweezing or laser hair removal. You can even use the device on your face. The No No Hair Removal Device uses Thermicon Heat Technology to literally kill the hair follicles. You roll the device at a 90 degree angle to your skin, and when you see the blue light come on, you know its working. Apparently you can even smell the hair burning, but it does not burn your skin. Watson said that after using this product for 6 months, eventually the hair won’t come back at all, but you must do it every day consistently.
Dr Oz: Infrared Heat Massager
Dr Laura Berman also showed a great device called an Infrared Heat Massager. One side heats up with an infrared light, and the other side has various attachments. You can use it to massage your back. Dr Berman said that women can also use the Infrared Heat Massager to help promote blood flow to “special areas” if you catch the drift!
Dr Oz: Irvingia
Tanya Edwards told Dr Oz that there are so many supplements that it is hard for anyone to keep up with all of them. But studies have shown that by taking Irvingia, you can decrease your weight and your waist circumference. When you gain weight over the age of 40, it usually gets deposited around your waist. Tanya Edwards said that she lost 7 pounds in just 6 weeks by taking Irvingia Supplements without doing anything else. Doctor Oz said that his medical unit checked out Irvingia and that there was enough medical data to support using it for weight loss, but of course you should always check with your doctor before starting any new supplement.
Dr Oz: Turmeric & Pepper Supplements
Tanya Edwards also said that Turmeric With Pepper Supplements are great for fighting off Dementia. Turmeric alone is the ingredient that fights off Dementia, but by itself, your body has a hard time absorbing it through your intestines. However, if you combine Turmeric with Pepper, you increase your body’s ability to absorb it. Dr Oz said you could also try a curry sauce with pepper in it.
