Dr. Oz: Simple Test at Home to Check for Blocked Arteries


Diane, an audience member, asked Dr. Oz if there is an annual test or something we can do to know if we have blockages in our arteries before it gets severe.

Dr. Oz gave a great test we can all do at home to check and see if we have blocked arteries.  Sit down on the ground with your legs out in front of you.  See if you can touch your toes.  This tests how flexible you are, and in turn is an indicator of how flexible or blocked your arteries are.  If you can touch your toes, fabulous!  If you can’t touch your toes, then your arteries are probably not being revved up enough.
