The DASH diet is for people who are hypertensive. It was developed by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI); you can get a free booklet on it from the US government. It's supported by the Mayo Clinic. It's a balanced diet that helps lower sodium, increase HDL and decrease LDL and triglycerides.

Sometimes *even* Dr. Oz can get it right.

My doctor recommended it to help get my blood pressure down, but I just can't afford to eat THAT healthy laugh

Right on. The DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) diet is legit. Dr. Oz I don't know. I have high blood pressure so I was just checking it out on the American Heart Association site. Here is the link to the 64 pg. Eating Plan (PDF)
http://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/health/public/heart/hbp/dash/new_dash.pdf (edited to add URL)

From the NHLBI link in the quote.
Daily Nutrient Goals Used in the DASH Studies (based on 2000 cal/day)
Total fat 27% of calories
Saturated fat 6% of calories
Protein 18% of calories
Carbohydrate 55% of calories
Cholesterol 150 mg
Sodium 2,300 mg*
Potassium 4,700 mg
Calcium 1,250 mg
Magnesium 500 mg
Fiber 30 g

* 1,500 mg of sodium was a lower goal tested and found to be even better for lowering blood pressure. It worked very well for people who already had high blood pressure, African Americans, and middle-aged and older adults.
