Dr. Oz’ Greatest Health Tips

June 29, 2010

On the Dr. Oz Show, Mehmet Oz teaches people that once they are emotionally involved in their health, change happens quickly – especially if they feel that their behavior is letting loved ones down.

Large-scale change always seems daunting and rarely has much follow through. We want simple routines that we can automatically follow. Dr. Oz has created many tips over the course of his show; simple tips that are easy to implement. He says after following these tips you will like your life more in just a couple of weeks ~ plus, you will live longer 🙂

Have more tips? Tried these ones? Let me know what you think in the comments!

#1: Roll on the Floor Laughing
Laughing not only eases stress, promotes social bonding and lowers blood pressure; it may also boost your immune system. So bring some humor into your life, whether it’s through friends, a television show or something else that tickles your funny bone.

#2: Don’t Skip Breakfast
Eating fiber in the morning means less hunger late in the afternoon. When you’re most likely to feel tired and gorge yourself on sugar. Dr. Oz’s morning dose comes from steel-cut oatmeal, usually mixed with raisins, walnuts and flaxseed oil. An early start on eating also keeps your metabolism more active throughout the day; breakfast eaters are thinner than people who just rush out the door.

#3: Hit the Sack
Jay and Dave are funny, but they’re not worth the strain on your system. Seven hours of sleep a night not only helps you live longer, it also lowers your stress, sharpens your memory and reduces cravings for pants-splitting foods. Set a bedtime and stick to it. Mehmet’s target is 10:30 pm. Here’s a tip: record late night television and then watch them the next day as you pedal a stationary bike.

#4: Admire Your Work
Don’t be so trigger-happy with the flusher. Turn around and take a look at your poop, which speaks volumes about your gut and overall health. Poop should be smooth and S-shaped, like your colon. If it comes out too lumpy, or drops into the bowl like marbles, you’re constipated; increase your fiber and water intake.

#5 Don’t Pamper Your Bad Back
Even if you’re hunched over in agony, spending more time in bed will only make a bad back worse. The latest research shows that bed rest weakens back muscles and prolongs the suffering. People who are married with this problem may suffer more than single folks because they’re tempted to lie back and enjoy all the pampering they receive. The best solution is to get up, take a pain reliever and be a soldier. (NOTE: Z-CoiL Footwear reduces the impact of each step by 50% thus reducing the stress and pressure to your back.)
