CHICAGO, Nov. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- On yesterday's Oprah Winfrey Show, themed "How to Turn Back Time," New York-Presbyterian cardiothoracic surgeon Mehmet Oz, MD, offered anti-aging strategies from his new book YOU: Staying Young-The Owner's Manual for Extending Your Warranty.
In the discussion, Dr. Oz referred to the groundbreaking work of board certified internist Jacob Teitelbaum, MD. "Dr. Teitelbaum," he said, "is a wonderful physician who specializes in fibromyalgia, and he opened my eyes ... to a problem that afflicts 8 million Americans."

One month ago, Dr. Oz referred Lisa D., a patient with fibromyalgia, to Dr. Teitelbaum. "I had a phone consultation with Dr. Teitelbaum, and he provided me with so many answers to questions that were previously a mystery," she wrote in summary of her experiences.

That day I received a glimmer of hope after 7 years of headaches, muscle pain, fatigue, frustration and anxiety."
At Dr. Teitelbaum's recommendation, Lisa began treatment at the national Fibromyalgia & Fatigue Centers, where he is medical director, http://www.fibroandfatigue.com .
