When it comes to your health, it’s okay to go a little nuts. Especially since heart disease is so prevalent in our country.

Dr. Mark Reeves (Host)
Surgical Oncologist
In fact, one-third of Americans have high LDL cholesterol—the bad kind of cholesterol. Those with high total cholesterol have twice the risk of heart disease compared to people whose cholesterol levels are under 200.

Patricia Kelikani (Host)
With heart disease being the number one killer in the United States, researchers at Loma Linda University Health advise us to go nuts with our health.

Dr. Mark Reeves (Host)
Back in 1993, Loma Linda University Health made a landmark discovery that reversed the health advice from the American Heart Association. Up until then, the organization advised the public against eating nuts because of the high fat content.

Patricia Kelikani (Host)
However, Dr. Joan Sabaté discovered that adding one to two servings of nuts to our daily diets could actually cut our risk of having a heart attack in half. During the initial study, the researchers put subjects on a two-month diet known as the American Heart Association step-one diet to lower cholesterol.

Dr. Mark Reeves (Host)
Half of those subjects were fed the same diet with 20 percent of the calories coming from walnuts. The following month, the groups switched.

Dr. Joan Sabaté
LLU Professor of Nutrition & Epidemiology
“The walnut diet lowered much more the cholesterol particularly the LDL-cholesterol that is considered the bad cholesterol without changes in the good cholesterol, the HDL cholesterol.”

Dr. Mark Reeves (Host)
Nuts are rich in unsaturated fat— a healthy type of fat that our bodies need to reduce LDLs, the bad cholesterol in our blood. In addition, walnuts have high levels of omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3s help lower levels of triglycerides, a type of fat in the bloodstream.
But nuts are also loaded with protein.

Joan Sabaté
“Percent wise and quantity wise it is even greater than the protein that is in meat or in many other animal products. Besides fat and protein, nuts have many other micronutrients such as minerals, vitamins.”

Patricia Kelikani (Host)
For more than 20 years, Dr. Sabaté has been studying the effect of nuts on our health and summarized that one to two servings of nuts a day lowers cholesterol by 10 percent.

Dr. Mark Reeves (Host)
So what are today’s health tips?
Eat a handful of nuts a day to cut your risk of heart disease in half and reduce your cholesterol.

Joan Sabaté
“Every morning that I have a smoothie, I put whatever is the ripe fruit that is available, and then two or three handful of nuts, and that is a perfect smoothie.”

Patricia Kelikani (Host)
Other ways to incorporate nuts into your diet include topping salads with nuts instead of croutons, or adding them on pizza and pasta.
There’s your tip for the day on how you can live healthier, longer.

8 Simple Tests to Check Your Health Right Now

8 Simple Tests to Check Your Health Right Now

How often do you go to the doctor for regular check-ups? If you’re diligent, maybe once or twice a year, right? But what if I told you that there are lots of quick, easy, and accurate health tests you can do yourself right at home whenever you want?

For example, how can you tell if you’re anemic? Anemia is a condition when the blood doesn’t have enough red blood cells (a.k.a. hemoglobin) in it. Stand in front of a mirror and pull your lower eyelid down a bit. The exposed tissue should be bright pink. If it’s a pale light pink or even slightly yellow, you could be anemic. Watch our new video to find out more!

– Bring your hands together so that your index fingers form an upside-down J. Hold them with the nails touching for about 10 seconds. Do you see a tiny rhombus in the negative space between your nails? Great! Your heart and lungs are a-ok!
– Lift one of your legs so that the raised knee is in line with your hip. Try to hold this position for 20 seconds. If you can do this almost effortlessly, your blood vessels and brain must be in great shape!
– Grab a small lock of hair and pull at it just slightly. If you end up with 2-3 strands in your fingers, there’s no need to worry – your hormones are doing great! Pulling more hairs out could mean that it’s time to see a hair and scalp specialist.
– To check yourself, start by raising your arms and making two fists in front of your face. Your wrists should be facing toward you. Now try to reach the bottom of your palm with your fingertips, and hold this position for about 1 minute. If you start to feel tension, pain, or unpleasant tingling, you could have carpal tunnel syndrome.
– Ask your friend to touch your feet and toes with both the pointy end and the eraser side of the pencil. Really focus on how you feel and answer one simple question: can you tell the ends apart without looking? If it’s a piece of cake for you, then diabetic neuropathy isn’t something you should worry about.
– Lie down on your back, raise your legs at a 45-degree angle, and hold it for about 1-2 minutes. When the time’s up, take a closer look at the color of your feet and toes. Are they pale or even white? If so, then you might have a circulatory problem.
– To make sure that your hearing is still going strong, go into a quiet room and gently rub your thumb on the other four fingers. Start by doing it pretty close to your ear, and then slowly move your hand further away until it’s about 6 inches from your ear. If you can hear the rubbing that far away, your hearing is still impeccable!
