NASALINE

Nasaline is a unique, patented, drug-free nasal irrigation system designed by a team of Swedish ear, nose, and throat specialists. With the simple use of saline solution, Nasaline effectively washes away unwanted mucous, crusty secretions or allergens and provides relief from symptoms associated with allergies, colds, or the flu. After a prolonged stay in dry, dusty, or smoky environments, Nasaline cleans and soothes the nasal passages, reducing nasal irritation and moistening the mucous membranes.

 
Nasaline is also prescribed for the following:  
  • Prevention of sinus related infections.
  • Drug-free relief from pregnancy congestion.
  • Follow up treatment to sinus or nose surgery.
  • Relief from symptoms associated with nose polyps or after the excessive
    use of cold medicines such as nose sprays and drops. 
Nasaline is available in our office.   Learn more about Nasaline here

AIR PURIFIERS

  Did you know there is seven times the air pollution indoors then there is outside?  If you desire to breath and sleep better, then an air purifier can probably help.  While there are many different air purifiers, choosing the right one is important.  Here are some steps to help your search.

 

-Choose one that is quiet (if it is annoying or noisy you won’t use it regularly.

-Choose one that kills germs
-Choose one that is not costly or inconvenient to maintain. 
 
Which ones do we recommend?  Our office uses an air purifier from HealthWay.   We have been pleased with its results.  The HealthWay site describes it as “an advanced air purification system, which is a device used to remove particles from the air for medical purposes. An independent lab has tested the HealthWay advanced air system on the effect of the survival of bacteria, virus, mold and fungi.”  Read more Here.   

OMEGAS
Benefits- According to Dr. Barry Sears one of the leading experts on health and wellness, Allergies are an inflammation response of the body and Omegas have proven effectivein reducing inflammation in the body. 

 
Recommended dosage is 4000IU to 7000IU per day during the allergy season.  Omega 3 and Omega-6 (n-6) fatty acids constitute the two families of Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs)
EFAs are considered “essential” because they are needed throughout the human life cycle, cannot be produced in the human body, and therefore must be provided through the diet.

EFAs aid in the maintenance of cell membrane fluidity and stability, development and function of brain and nerve tissue, oxygen transfer and energy production, immune functions, and conversion into compounds involved in all body functions including local hormones governing inflammatory responses.
