Charlie Sheen Will Appear on Dr. Oz Again to Talk About What He's Learning About HIV, His Manager Says
Fans will be seeing more of Charlie Sheen on The Dr. Oz Show.
“Charlie is NOT being paid for doing The Dr. Oz Show,” his manager Mark Burg clarified adding, “For now, he is doing one more episode of the show where he talks about what he’s learning about the disease.”
In addition, Sheen’s manager revealed that the actor will be discussing “how he is taking a holistic medical approach to strengthen his immune system and meeting various doctors and researchers regarding HIV” in a future episode.
Sheen, 50, previously appeared in a pre-taped segment on Dr. Mehmet Oz‘s daytime talk show Tuesday when he discussed his alternative treatments in Mexico and shared updates regarding the status of his HIV disease.
In the interview, the former Two and a Half Men star disclosed that he temporarily went off his HIV medications “for about a week” and sought medical aid from Dr. Sam Chachoua in Mexico. However, Sheen quickly “found out the numbers are back up” and the alternative treatments had failed.
“Just to be clear, Charlie put his life at risk for a doctor who claimed to have a cure for HIV. When it didn’t work he immediately went back on his medication,” his manager added to PEOPLE.
