Oz Gone Wild: 50 Embarrassing Questions
Dr Oz tackled 50 Embarrassing Questions about health that many of us have, but few of us have the courage to ask about. Do you know why “Eye Boogers” occur? What about “Eye Twitching” and natural remedies to cure it? Or how about bad breath – all of us suffer from that at some point! Here are some of the 50 Embarrassing Questions that Doctor Oz answered in his “Oz Gone Wild” show.
Dr Oz: Eye Booger Remedy
Dr Oz was asked about what causes Eye Boogers? According to Doctor Oz, the crust that forms in your eye no matter how much you try to wash it away is caused by plugged up sinuses. The simple remedy: use a saline spray to unclog your sinuses. I bet the Neti Pot that he often recommends for clearing up your sinuses would work wonders as well! You can read a review that we did of several different Neti Pots here: Waterpik SinuSense Review
Dr Oz: Eye Twitching
Dr Oz was asked what is eye twitching and how do you get rid of it? He said that too much caffeine may cause your eye to twitch. Eye twitching is a common occurrence and easily curable. The simple remedy; limit your caffeine intake. For instance, coffee drinkers should have no more than 2 cups of coffee per day.
Dr Oz: Bad Breath from Low Carb Diet
Doctor Oz was asked what could be the cause of bad, stale breath? A Dr Oz fan wanted to know if her low carb diet could be the cause of her bad breath. Dr Oz’s answer; definitely! During a low carbohydrate diet, your body goes into starvation mode. The simple remedy: add a fistful of good carbs to your daily diet (such as whole wheat pastas and whole grains.)
Dr Oz: Thinning Hair from Weight Loss
Dr Oz’s next question was can losing weight cause thinning hair? This is a definite yes. You may not be getting enough protein in your diet. The simple remedy; add 1 large egg and a quarter cup mixed nuts to your diet.
Dr Oz: Stretch Mark Remedy
Doctor Oz’s next question was one that many women (especially moms) would love to know: do at-home treatments for stretch marks work? According to Dr Oz, save your money. There are no cocoa butter lotions or any other moisturizers available that eliminates stretch marks. Use laser treatments to reduce their appearance.
Dr Oz: Colonics
Dr Oz answered the question: can colonics help you lose weight? Unfortunately, Colonics do not work. In fact, Dr Oz doesn’t like them because they wash away the protective lining from the intestinal walls.
Dr Oz: Sad Tattoo Fix
Doctor Oz was asked: what can you do for a “sad” tattoo? If you’ve lost or gained a lot of weight quickly, the tattoo you’ve had for years may stretch out with your skin and give it a “sad” or droopy appearance. To eliminate the issue, stick to a healthy diet and lose no more than 1-2 pounds per week.
Dr Oz: Green Vegetables Cause Stomach Pain
Dr Oz’s final question from this particular segment was: how do you keep green vegetables from making your stomach gurgle? For those with this issue, try mixing your greens with whole grain.
