Dr Erika says Newsweek’s Attack on Oprah Ignores the Many Benefits of Her Health Care Advocacy
Newsweek’s article questions the legitimacy of Oprah’s choices and says some of the doctors and “experts” that appear on her TV show are far out of the medical mainstream.
While watching her shows, Dr Erika says she sometimes wondered about the lack of balance.
“When she talked about bioidentical hormones I was thrilled, but her choice of experts and spokeswoman for the hormones
“I asked the chairman of the department of ob-gyn,
“Oprah did. She did what no conventional media or conventional medicine has done. She has stepped up to the plate. She has given the public the missing information. She has opened the door to other options. And the public has spoken. Oprah is their leader, not the American Medical Association.”
Dr Erika says that while Oprah may not have always chosen the best “experts” or figured how to provide a balanced view of their opinions, at least she has had the courage to bring to the public new ways of looking at health and has sparked interest in options that others would like kept under wraps.
