Personal life

Oz lives in Cliffside Park, New Jersey with his wife Lisa. They have been married since 1985[24] and have four children: Daphne Nur, Arabella Sezen, Zoe Yasemin, and Oliver Mustafa.
Oz is fluent in both English and Turkish.[25] He is a holder of both Turkish and American citizenship, having served time in the Turkish Army to retain his Turkish citizenship.[26]
His father's family believes in the integration of Islam and government, his mother's family are secular Muslims. He has been influenced by the mysticism of Sufi Muslims,[27] as well as the ideas of Emanuel Swedenborg, the Swedish scientist, philosopher, and Christian theologian. He recently wrote in Spirituality and Health Magazine that "As I came into contact with Swedenborg's many writings, I began to understand Swedenborg's profound insights and how they applied directly to my life". He mentions Swedenborg's ideas that marriage lasts to eternity, everyone has a purpose in this world, God is love, and Swedenborg's answers to "Why do bad things happen?".[28]
Oz is a practitioner of Transcendental Meditation. "When I meditate, I go to that place where truth lives," he said. "I can see what reality really is, and it is so much easier to form good relationships then."[29]


In August 2010, Oz was diagnosed with a pre-cancerous polyp in the colon during a routine colonoscopy[30] which was performed as part of his show. Oz said that the procedure likely saved his life.[31]

[edit]RealAge drug marketing
Oz is a spokesman and advisor for the website RealAge.com, which The New York Times has criticized for its pharmaceutical marketing practices. The site solicits medical information from visitors to determine a visitor's biological age and then uses the visitor's medical profile for pharmaceutical marketing purposes. As The Times reporter explained the significance of this fact: "While few people would fill out a detailed questionnaire about their health and hand it over to a drug company looking for suggestions for new medications, that is essentially what RealAge is doing."[32]
[edit]Integrative medicine
Oz is a supporter of integrative medicine, combining alternative therapies with conventional medical treatments.[3] Some conventional medical practitioners allege that Oz may be promoting unproven and potentially harmful alternative medicine practices on The Oprah Winfrey Show [33] and elsewhere.[34][35][36] Appearing in surgical scrubs on the show's set in Chicago, Oz has promoted self-described energy based practices and acupuncture on the show.[37]
