Dr. Oz's Tip of the Day

Whether or not ovarian cancer runs in your family, it’s a good idea to adopt an anti-ovarian cancer diet. One simple anti-ovarian cancer food addition is to eat about a half a cup of endives two times a week. If the endives are raw, it maximizes the cancer fighting properties.  Another easy addition is to incorporate half a cup of raw onions into your diet whenever you can. Some studies have shown this can help reduce your risk of ovarian cancer by a whopping 73%.


One of the best cures for dry skin is extra virgin olive oil. Just add a few teaspoons of it to a bath or buy soap that already contains extra virgin olive oil. It is a quick, easy solution to a very common problem. 


Lowering your high LDL cholesterol does not have to be a daunting task. Add 3 grams of a glucomannan supplement to your daily diet to help bring down your numbers over 20%.


 If you’re looking for a way to stop the carbs you’re eating from turning into fat, try this small diet change: Eat most of your carbs early in the day and reduce them as the day goes on. Try to end your day with more protein. This will better your chance of burning off carbs during your day so they don’t transform into fat.


 To keep mood swings from taking over your life, try using holy basil to keep you calm. It is an all natural supplement that is really effective in treating anxiety, and can be found in capsules at most vitamin stores.  


 If you love pasta but are afraid it might make you gain weight, learn how to enjoy it without feeling guilty! The secret is in the serving size. The amount of pasta on your plate should be no larger than an “a-ok” sign made with your hand. To make the sign, simply touch your index finger to your thumb to make a circle and keep your remaining three fingers pointing upwards. 

 If you suffer from psoriasis, try using an ultraviolet light treatment. Once only found in doctor’s offices, this treatment is now available in the comfort of your own home.

 Choose one meal each day that you completely rid your plate of animal products – including eggs and dairy. Meat is a very concentrated source of calories and fat -- so cutting out animal products for just one meal per day can help reduce your fat intake.
