Charlie Sheen enlists Dr. Oz's help

Charlie Sheen has enlisted Dr. Oz to help him make some "lifestyle changes".

The 50-year-old actor - who recently revealed he is HIV positive - has reportedly sought help from the cardiothoracic surgeon and television personality Dr. Mehmet Oz with his addictions.

A source said: "Oz still met Sheen at his hotel that night ... [They] spoke about alternative ways to better his health in addition to taking his medication. And they also had a serious heart-to-heart about other lifestyle changes.

"Oz is a real doctor first before a TV host, and [Sheen] feels comfortable opening up to him. Oz was like, 'I get it. You're an addict, but you have to cut all those behaviours because drinking weakens your immune system.' He agreed he would stop drinking and start exercising again."

And Charlie is said to have chosen Dr. Oz as they have a "history together" and when the pair united for the doctor's show, the 'Two and A Half Men' star was keen to show off his new lifestyle.

The insider added to the New York Post's Page Six column: "They have a history together. Oz was trying to convince him to stop smoking by showing him a smoker's lung and a regular lung. He wanted to show ... his new daily routine, [which consists of] jogging and yoga. He quit drinking right after he did the Lauer interview."
