Dr. Oz and Carmen Wong Ulrich, author of The Real Cost of Living, showed us how to reduce stress for only $5. She stated that massages are the best but expensive, so you want to duplicate the feeling at home. Pool Noodles can be purchased online for less than $5 and there are two massages you can do; one is to lie on top of the noodle horizontally and roll up and down, second lie on the Pool Noodle vertically along your spine and roll side to side.

Dr Oz: Rene Barbier Mediterranean Wine – $5 Wine

Another stress reliever, according to Dr Oz, is a $5 bottle of wine. If you find it hard to fall asleep easy, because you can’t stop thinking about all the things you have to do and relax. Did you know constant worrying will cause neurotransmitters in your brain to continue produce stress hormones and by drinking a little wine, you slow down your neurotransmitters? Carmen Ulrich said that Spanish and Portuguese wines are very inexpensive while being great quality. You can get a delicious bottle of Rene Barbier Mediterranean Wine for $4.49 online.

Dr Oz: Crackling Fire Sound Effect Sleep Remedy

While the sleep industry makes 23 billion a year, Dr Oz said that one sleep aid that helps you get a good night sleep only cost 99 cents, Crackling Fire Sound Effect mp3 or CD. Listening to sleep music will help your brain think of something else instead of your to-do-list, what is known as a Fire and Ice Approach by Carmen Ulrich.

Dr Oz: Sleep Ice Packs

Many times I have talked about staying cool during the night will help you sleep. Ulrich concurred that you want to be cool while you sleep and there are Sleep Ice Packs available for $30. But you can save a few bucks and buy a regular ice pack that you just slip inside of your pillowcase to cool you down at night. This may also be beneficial for anyone suffering from night sweats.

Dr Oz: Melatonin Extract & Chamomile Tea

Dr Oz said that a great Sleep Remedy is to mix 2 tsp of Liquid Melatonin Extract into a glass of chamomile tea before you go to bed. Add honey for some extra flavor. Honey also helps you to fall asleep. I found 2oz of Melatonin Extract for $4.99 online. (6oz=1tsp) You can also find melatonin extract at your pharmacy or local health food store.

Dr Oz: Salad Blaster Bowl to Control Calories

Salad Blaster Bowl is when you put your salad in the plastic bowl portion of the container and then there is a little compartment in the lid that holds just two ounces of dressing. All you do is push down on the little salad dressing compartment and the salad dressing gets dispensed over the salad, you shake it up, and you have the perfect fresh salad. Dr Oz said that you can buy the Salad Blaster Bowl at The Container Store. A large Salad Blaster Bowl is also available on for $3.99. The large bowl contains 40oz of salad, 3oz of dressing and a gel cold pack that will keep your salad cold, if traveling. Great for taking to work!

Dr Oz: Psyllium for Weight Loss

Dr Oz said that Psyllium Seeds or Psyllium Tablets are fabulous fibers that make you feel full so that you eat less. Just eat one Psyllium Wafer and a glass of water, to prevent constipation and gas. Taking this product without adequate fluid may cause it to swell and block your throat or esophagus and may cause choking. Do not take this product if you have difficulty swallowing. Metamucil offers Psyllium Wafers that are flavored with cinnamon or apple crisp. Carlson Labs Psyllium Fiber Supplement, 500mg available on for $3.64.

Dr Oz: Coconut Water Boosts Metabolism

Dr Oz said that Pure Coconut Water costs around $2 and boosts your metabolism because Coconut Water contains Arginine. Arginine enhances the function of muscle – helping muscles use calories more efficiently so that they don’t end up as stored fat. Coconut Water quickly metabolizes and functions in some ways as an antioxidant. Coconut has been shown to have some benefit for hypothyroidism, particularly the virgin coconut oil. Both the anti-viral and hypothyroid benefits may be due to coconut's general immune system support. More information about hypothyroidism and sleep see:  hyperthyroidism hypothyroidism and sleeping.
