Dr Oz: Holistically Reverse the Effects Of Yo-Yo Dieting
Dr. Oz may be a doctor who practices traditional medicine but he also believes in the healing powers of holistic medicines, so he is devoting today’s show to sharing his favorite holistic cures for the body. The first holistic cure he shared is one for health problems associated with yo-yo dieting.
A lot of people have done yo-yo dieting and they probably didn’t realize that kind of dieting is very bad for their heart. Natasha Turner, a naturopathic doctor, said yo-yo dieting is very bad for your arteries and your cholesterol. One study has even shown people who have been on several different diets are five times more likely to suffer a heart attack than someone who has been on only one diet.
While all that might sound terrifying for anyone who has yo-yo dieted, Dr. Oz had a holistic cure to improve your cholesterol numbers and keep you from having a heart attack.
