Dr. Oz is the popular host of the Dr. Oz show, as well as a practicing physician. He recently had a popular Alternative Medicine Specialist, Dr. Andrew Weil, on his show. Dr. Weil shared with the audience a few optimal health tips that can help three key organs of our bodies: our brain, our lungs and our hearts.
Here is a brief summary of what he said.
Our brain is what controls everything in our body. Yet, it can be very vulnerable to infection and to insult. For these reasons Dr. Weil suggested we incorporate these things into our lives:
• Black Cod
L-Carnitine & Alpha Lipoic Acia (average cost is $15 a bottle) this supplement will help the growth factor of the brain.
Our cooking methods
We should be cooking our foods in lower temperatures. Steaming is a great way to prepare foods. When we cook at higher temperatures we are taking away a lot of our foods nutritional values.
Our lungs bring in the oxygen we need and exhales the carbon dioxide we no longer need.
Air pollution is something our lungs have to fight everyday.
What can we do protect them?
Eat a diet rich in beta carotene foods such as red, orange pigmented foods, as well as rich green foods.
Take a daily does of ZHU Ling. This can be purchased online for about $14. It has been shown to help slow down the development of lung cancer.
Purchase a Hepa Filter
A hepa filter can clean the air in your home. Many can be purchased for as little as $50.
One should be placed in the bedroom of anyone who is suffering from asthma, respiratory problems or anyone who lives with a smoker.
The heart is the pump that delivers nutrition and oxygen to all parts of the body. It is very vulnerable to disease and high blood pressure.
What can you do to protect the heart?
Eat 1 to 2 garlic cloves each day.
Take a daily does of COQ10. Choose this in a soft gel form and try to take it with a large meal.
The best way to prevent problems from these three major organs is to live healthy and to eat healthy. That is the key to optimal living.
