Dr Oz: Saline Solution For Deviated Septums
Dr Oz did a segment on Deviated Septums, because it turns out that most of us do not breathe as much air as we should. 4 out of 5 of us have one air passage that is smaller than the other, and the number one reason for this is a Deviated Septum. In fact, Doctor Oz’s Assistant-Of-The-Day, Angela, had a Deviated Septum when Dr Oz checked with a special scope.
Dr Oz: Deviated Septums
Dr Oz said that if you look at a normal face, the inside of the nose should be perfectly symmetric. So the middle of the nose should be straight. However, 80% of people have a Deviated Septum which bends in one direction or the other. The problem with this is that it can block your sinuses and cause breathing problems. Doctor Oz said that this is so common that even he got a bent nose from playing baseball in college which caused a Deviated Septum.
