Dr Oz: Household Uses For White Vinegar
Did you know your sleep position can make a difference in how well you sleep? Dr. Oz and Carol Ash will decode your sleep position to help you get a better night’s sleep! Also, Dr. Oz will reveal the Consumer Reports must-haves that should be in your home right now!
Understanding Your Sleep Position
Carol Ash, a sleep specialist, says finding the right sleep position is important because not only does it make you comfortable, but it also helps to compensate for any health problems you may have.
Side Sleeper: Carol Ash says sleeping on your side could cause problems with your hips and shoulders and could also be a sign you have seasonal allergies or other upper respiratory problems. Carol recommends using a thick pillow because it will fill in the gap between your neck and the mattress, but also a small travel pillow between your knees because it will offer support for your legs and back.
Back Sleeper: Carol says sleeping on your back is the best for alignment and comfort, which will ultimately give you the best night’s sleep. She added it will also get rid of wrinkles!
Consumer Reports Health Must-Haves
Consumer Reports is where many of us turn when considering a purchase, from a new car to a new television, and they are ready to reveal their favorite health must-haves to Dr. Oz! Gayle Williams, Deputy Health Editor at Consumer Reports, told Dr. Oz they looked for items that were easy to find right at a store in your local community.
Cigarette Rolling Papers: Gayle Williams says cigarette rolling papers are a great way to stop bleeding on your face, even better than tissues or gauze. She says they are very inexpensive and can be found in any store that sells tobacco products.
100% Pure Shea Butter: Shea butter is a wonderful emollient for your skin while helping to improve the appearance of wrinkles and heal dry, cracked skin. Dr. Oz loves that shea butter is soothing while reducing inflammation and protecting your skin from further damage. Shea butter costs around $10 and can be found at most drugstores.
Distilled White Vinegar: Distilled white vinegar can be used to relieve the itching caused by bug bites as well as to clean nearly every surface in your home.
Meat Thermometer: One of the main reasons people get sick from meat is because they do not cook it long enough, so a meat thermometer is an essential tool to make sure you are cooking your food thoroughly. Steaks and roasts – 145 degrees, ground beef and egg dishes – 160 degrees and poultry – 165 degrees.
