Healing Herbs -- Dr. oz recommends these popular herbal remedies to temper hot flashes are black cohosh and sage tea, both thought to work on receptors that affect vasomotor symptoms.
Yoga - Counteracts depression, insomnia, anxiety, stress and high blood pressure. Breathing with intention and humming through the process is thought to increase nitric oxide, a potent gas that keeps blood vessels wide open, a great help to people with hypertension.
Sauna -- Sauna's make the environment so inhospitable for viruses that they just surrender. If you don't have heart disease or another circulatory medical condition, Dr. oz says to head to the sauna a couple of times a week to keep viruses away during cold and flu season.
Cupping -- The cupping technique combines this energy fine-tuning with body manipulation. When heated glass cups are strategically placed on top of the skin, suction pulls in skin inside the cup to increase of circulation and stimulate the flow of energy in that area.
Reiki -- Reiki Therapy is typically performed by a trained Reiki master. Here the practitioner's light touch on, or slightly above, specific areas of the body is used to balance the flow of energy throughout the body. The laying on of hands on the head, face, neck, chest, abdomen and back delivers varying degrees of natural vibrational "heated" energy as needed, to strengthen the body to heal itself. Reiki can also be self-administered. Reiki Master Pamela Miles was with Dr. oz today and had her hands in position and relieved a women's headache right there on stage.
