Dr Oz: Mucus Facts & Neti Pot

Dr Oz: What Mucus Tells You

In this segment, Dr Oz pulled up an audience member, Keisha to demonstrate the purpose of mucus.  (This is probably one time I would not want to be pulled from the audience.  Yuck!)

Keisha held up a plastic screen, labeled mucus.  Dr Oz used a fan and fake paper pieces that represented foreign particles.  He turned on the fan and the particles blew all over the place.  Keisha had to use the mucus screen to catch the particles.  This experiment demonstrated that it is mucus that catches the foreign particles and keeps them away from our lungs.

Dr Oz: Mucus Health Facts

– Humans make a quart of mucus a day.  The mucus is important because it shows how healthy we are.  Too much mucus could be a sign of inflammation while too little mucus is a sign of dehydration. Dr Oz Mucus

    What brand and where do you purchase the hand held nose humidifier Dr. Oz was talking about on the 12/29/11 show. I can’t find it on the internet. I would like to purchase one.

    I would like to know the brand and where you can purchase the hand held nose humidifier shown on the 1229/11 show. I have lots of nosebleeds and maybe this could help solve my problem.

    Netti Pots can be very dangerous if you don’t use “sterile or distilled water”. Tap water carries bacteria that can kill you via going up your nose.

    I live in the high desert and we use wood heat-my nose is a wreck from the dry air. I would like to purchase a nose humidifier as soon as possible. Can they be purchased on line or how do I find one?

  8. barbara says

    I just want to make sure you all know that DR. OZ does NOT come here and answer your questions. Don’t you all see that there are tons of people asking the same question and no one is answering it.

    Really Dr. Oz? I was so excited about the nasal humidifier, that is exactly what I need for my dry sinuses. I have been all over town today looking for one. Why would you show that on national television and not tell anyone where we can purchase one?

    The nasal humidifier on the show is called MyPurMist….took forever to find it but I did hope this helps.

    Has anyone recently purchased the MyPurMist? Based on the comments of their facebook page, it looks like they are no longer available and the company is in between owners.

    this show and website should know better than to announce something and even repeat it without giving the full information immediately

  16. barbara says

    Go do your research on Google….Dr. Oz does not come here and answer questions. That said…if you read thru these post Bob T already told you all the name of it. It’s called “MyPurist” I know 100 more people will still ask this same question over and over and over anyway. ugh!
