Dr. Oz first wanted to know how Theresa Caputo dealt with all of the criticism she gets from people. She explained that she never intended to do what she does just so that people would be believe in mediums. She said she respects the people who believe in what she does, just as she respect those who don’t.

“This isn’t about anyone believing in mediums. You know, this helps people and it gives them peace and permission to embrace life. And I just feel I’m so blessed to be able to do that,” Theresa said.

Dr Oz: Why Theresa Caputo Talks To The Dead

Theresa Caputo told Dr. Oz that people often feel a lot of negativity when someone dies. They’re oftentimes left thinking about what they should have done different or could have done to change things when they were still alive. She explained that a burden like that can cause all sorts of health issues like anxiety, stress, and even ulcers.


Theresa said that she’s felt a burden like that be lifted off of people after they’ve met with her. She gave an example of a client she had that was so filled with anxiety that she couldn’t leave her house and was overweight. Theresa said that after she met with the woman, the woman lost 15 pounds and was finally able to leave her home.

Dr. Oz asked Christie, one of Theresa’s clients, to stop by the show and share her story. Christie had a double lung transplant in 2011 because of cystic fibrosis, and had survivor’s guilt because she was alive due to someone else dying and giving her their lungs. When Christie met with Theresa, Theresa told her that her donor wanted her to live her life with a second chance. Theresa explained that she does what she does so that she can change people like Christie’s lives. “You can’t make this stuff up,” Theresa said.
