Regina, from seat 165, was Dr. Oz’s helper of the day, and her blood pressure was too high. Dr. Oz said the optimal or ideal blood pressure is 115/75. The big number (the 115) is how hard your heart is pushing to pump out blood. Everyone should have a Blood Pressure Monitor at home. Make sure that the monitor you buy is both automatic and digital.
In addition to keeping a Blood Pressure Monitor and using it regularly, follow these 3 tips to a healthy heart!
Dr. Oz’s 3 Secrets to a Healthy Heart:
Take 2 Low Dose Baby Aspirin every day to help keep your heart healthy.
2. Dental Floss
Floss daily with Dental Floss, and keep track of if your gums bleed. If your gums bleed for three days in a row, then you may have gingivitis. This can be dangerous for your heart because the blood gets sticky and could close off your heart.
3. Your Pharmacist
The single most underused aspect in the health and medical field is the pharmacist! Stacia Woodcock, a pharmacist at Walgreens, says we should all get to know our pharmacists. Do you know your pharmacists name? Learn their name and become friendly. You should get all of your prescriptions filled at one place so that the pharmacist knows everything that you are taking. Make sure to also tell them any over the counter supplements or herbal supplements you are taking. And ask your pharmacist before taking a diet medication or cough / cold / flu medicine. The best part about this tip is that it costs nothing to talk to your pharmacist!
