SOUTHFIELD, Mich. -- People got a double dose of Dr. Oz on Tuesday with his new talk show and as the speaker for the 2009 "Women in Philanthropy Women's Heart Health Benefit" inside the Congregation Shaarey Zedek in Southfield, which has been called "one of several examples of the Sinai Guild's success stories", as this event was focused on preventing heart failure and disease for both men and women.

"I've been a member of the Sinai Guild for probably 40 years," said Lauren Daitch, a West Bloomfield, Mich. resident who attended the event. "My grandfather was one of the founders of Sinai Hospital in the '50s. Dr. Oz is my daughter's favorite. So when she heard Dr. Oz was coming, I made it surely my business to make sure that we were coming today."

Dr. Oz's speaking engagement has caused quite a buzz that "has turned into electricity," said co-chairperson Sandi Metz, as he offers advice and tips like eating right, ways of getting a good night's sleep, and have plenty of energy during the day in hopes of living longer than we expected.

"We don't make decisions without being emotionally involved," the married father of four (three daughters, one son) states. "Your body is a temple...We can not improve health care in America without you."

"I support the guild and I've been supporting it for a long time," said Florine Mark, president and chairman of The WW Group, Inc., a Weight Watchers franchise. "I think he was absolutely sensational and right on. If half the people go out here and lose 10 pounds and start to move every single day, I think he's done a great job here."

Mark asked Dr. Oz about vitamins that do not come in the pill form. "I asked a question because my daughter doesn't take pills," she said. "There are liquid vitamins that Dr. Oz said she can take. I'm going to go out and research it and buy them for her. I think it's very important that all of us take vitamins. I do. Just take one day at a time and like yourself."

"He goes from A to Z, he is very knowledgeable," said Carmen Biederman of West Bloomfield, Mich. "I work at Pontiac Osteopathic Hospital in Pontiac. The money goes to help different charities so that's why I'm here."

Oz first caught national attention due to his frequent guest appearances on The Oprah Winfrey Show, which has spun-off Dr. Phil McGraw, Rachel Ray, and now Dr. Oz, where the focus of his show is not the fast pacing of heart surgery but exploring the unknown due to his deep calling: being able to give people back their lives and fix them more on the inside than on the outside.

"Dr. Oz is very down-to-earth," said Sandi Matz, co-chair of The Sinai Guild. "He tells you exactly what you need to do to be healthy. What to eat, what to drink, what not to drink, the vitamins to take. To have a healthy lifestyle so we can all live longer. We can't stop and relax because we are under a lot of pressure. We have to keep trying our best so we can live long lives.

"Women in Philanthropy is an event that we do every other year. We raise funds for medical research and for medical equipment. The equipment that we're buying this year is for Dr. Schreiber's heart study. It will not necessarily prevent heart disease for women but it will predict what their heart issues might be and what heart issues they have right now."

Still, Dr. Oz provides an empathetic point of view on health such as Oprah "elements" that includes having an upbeat message; being a smart patient by knowing your medical history, getting a second opinion, an advocate, finding Dr. Right; learning to keep your blood pressure and avoiding stress, and being humble of our human flaws.

"For many Americans," Dr. Oz continues, "Marcus Welby is dead...We treat the patient, not the disease...The goal is to recognize that we're all messed up. It's what makes us interesting as a species. That's what makes humanity unique. That's where forgiveness comes in. You have to forgive yourself. Success is forgetting that you're on a program."
