BWW TV: Sneak Peek - Barbra Streisand Visits Today's DR. OZ!
Today, Dr. Oz welcomes one of the most accomplished and famous entertainers in the world - Barbra Streisand! She's here to ask Dr. Oz some of her health questions that every woman needs to hear. Barbra also discusses heart disease and why she is so passionate about this major health issue. Check out a sneak peek below!
On the Yentl Syndrome of heart disease, Streisand comments: "You go misdiagnosed and therefore untreated and therefore you could go home the next day after the doctor has said take an antacid or an aspirin, and then a lot of women, stories that I've heard, the next day they're dead in their living room because they weren't taken seriously again. And it's like women stay in the house, blah, blah, blah but women should understand that because they now go to work and take care of the family, really they're the center of the family, they will put other things ahead of themselves so they have to know, get heart checked. When you go to your doctor, you ask for an EKG, tell them your family history. Know your cholesterol, your blood pressure and so forth."On her email to Dr. Oz about back pain and mustard, Streisand says: "When I was a kid, my mother used to put mustard plasters on me. Do you know what that is? You take a sheet, you rip it, you make a sheet. You make dried mustard with hot water. You put it in between the two pieces of fabric and you put it on your chest and on your back and that got rid of your cough. I bet you that is better than what they have today." On her guilty food pleasure, Streisand shares: "I love coffee ice cream and we go to friends' houses and I can't resist even the bread. I am a food addict. Tell you the truth. I am literally a food addict. I cannot stay away from foods that I love, which are bad for me. You know, like carbs that are bad. So I'm still a work in progress, as far as nutrition."
