Dr Oz did a show called The Land of Dr Oz, which was a Wizard of Oz themed Dr Oz Show. Doctor Oz said that everyone needs guidance when it comes to health, but you can be your own health wizard. The main message of The Wizard of Oz is that you have the power within you, which is exactly Dr Oz’s point of his show today.
Dr Oz: How To Prevent A Stroke
Dr Oz showed the inside of a brain from a person who had a stroke. You could see where the blood hemorrhaged in the brain from the stroke. Dr Oz said that 75 million Americans have high blood pressure, and one third of them do not even know it. Your ideal blood pressure is 115/75. Dr Oz said that one solution for people with high blood pressure is to look for powerful antioxidants over-the-rainbow. Eat things like grapes, blueberries, brussel sprouts, pomegranates, yams and strawberries. Dr Oz said that if you eat 1 cup of strawberries or blueberries every week, you help to lower your blood pressure and to open up blood vessels.
Dr Oz: How To Prevent A Heart Attack
Dr Oz said that the Tin Man had a big heart, but he did not want a lot of cholesterol to make his heart super big. A normal heart is around the size of your fist. If you have a heart attack from blockages of your arteries, your heart becomes very large. If you look at the heart of a person who had a heart attack, you can also see yellow areas where plaque is growing in the heart. Every minute a person dies from a Heart Attack, which is often caused by high cholesterol.
Dr Oz said that your body has arteries that are full of red blood cells and sometimes a little plaque. If you have good cholesterol (HDL Cholesterol), then it can remove the plaque. However, if you have bad cholesterol (LDL Cholesterol) then it pumps plaque back into your arteries. If your good cholesterol cannot keep up with the bad cholesterol, then you have a problem.
Dr Oz: Algae Oil Supplements, Flaxseed Oil & Olive Oil
Dr Oz said that if you have a good diet and eat the right foods, then you can help boost your HDL Cholesterol and decrease your LDL Cholesterol. The Tin Man’s secret to a healthy heart was healthy oils. Flaxseed Oil is great because of the omega-3’s found in it which relaxes your arteries. Algae Oil Supplements were another of Dr Oz’s suggestions, along with Olive Oil which is part of the Mediterranean Diet.
Dr Oz: How To Prevent A Panic Attack
Dr Oz said that some people live with irrational fears and panic attacks. In fact, the cowardly lion from the Wizard of Oz may have needed treatments for panic attacks! 60 million people in this country have panic attacks. What happens with a Panic Attack? First, something scares you and your pupils dilate. Then your brains starts to churn and your pituitary gland secretes chemicals to your body. Your heart begins to beat fast, you get shallow breathing, you start to sweat, and everything around you comes to a grinding halt. Dr Oz said that you can do yoga to reduce your overall stress, like the Down Dog Pose and the Up Dog Pose. The Down Dog Pose is where you get down on the floor on your knees and arms. Then push your bottom up into the air, straightening your legs and your back and relaxing your elbows and shoulders. Then transition into the Up Dog Pose where you go down onto the ground and push your body up with your arms as you arch your back up and lift your head towards the ceiling.
