He's one of America's most famous doctors. Dr. Oz helps millions of people get healthy by handing out advice on a daily basis through his TV show. But even Dr. Oz knows you don't have to spend big bucks to enjoy a healthy life. Here are some of his top money-saving health tips.


Don't Skip the Massage
You may think of a massage as an indulgent activity, but it's also good for your health, promoting circulation and reducing stress. Dr. Oz says a great way to enjoy a massage without the expense is by trying out a massage school. Students are often required to practice extensively before earning their certificate. A 60-minute massage can cost as little as $20 at one of these schools.

Buy Cheap "Health" Foods
Not all health foods are expensive. Dr. Oz says there's no reason why these items shouldn't show up on your grocery list: microwavable brown rice, eggs, canned tomatoes, and frozen soy burgers. They're all inexpensive, easy to prepare and, most importantly, healthy.

Don't Waste Food
If you're going to invest the money into healthy, fresh foods do your best to use them. Throwing away food that has gone bad is just like throwing away your hard earned money. Dr. Oz suggests using tricks to help food last longer. When it comes to berries, wash them with a mixture of one part vinegar to ten parts water. The solution won't change the taste of the food, but it will help the berries to stay fresh for up to two weeks. For bananas, he advises wrapping the bunch's crown in plastic to prolong their freshness.

Buy What's In Season
The easiest way to avoid overpaying for organic produce is to buy what's in season. That means that what you buy is probably grown closer to your home which means you aren't stuck with paying for your fruit's travel expenses. Use Dr. Oz's produce pocket guide to know what's in season.

Buy Bulk Smartly
Dr. Oz says there are three items you should stock up on at big box stores like Costco or Sam's Club to save hundreds of dollars a year. Buying your daily multi vitamin, organic chicken breasts and contact lenses in bulk and you'll save around $600 a year.
