Dr Oz: Omega 3 Fatty Acids
Dr Oz’s Show on August 15, 2011 is called The Big O: Know Your Omegas. Do you know the difference between Omega 3 Fats and Omega 6 Fats? Doctor Oz spoke about the importance of both Omega 3’s and Omega 6’s, but if you get too many Omega 6’s, it can actually cancel out some of the benefits that you would normally get from the Omega 3’s. So as with everything, it is a careful balancing act to be healthy. Dr Oz also spoke about an Omega 3 Blood Test that can help you to determine if you are getting enough Omega 3’s (and if you are getting too many Omega 6’s) in your diet.

Dr Oz: Pet Allergy Products
Doctor Oz also did a segment on products that you can use on your pets at home to help reduce the amount you and your family suffers from Pet Allergies. For example, you should use a vacuum cleaner with a HEPA Filter to help remove dander (often found in cat hair), and in general, you should try to avoid having your pets sleep in your bedroom… especially in your bed. For dog owners, you can try washing your dog with an Allergy-Reducing Shampoo. Since cats are bit harder to bathe regularly, cat owners may prefer to use Grooming Wipes or Bath Wipes to remove allergens from their kitties.
Dr Oz: Stress Incontinence
Dr Oz did another segment on Stress Incontinence, which can make you leak urine even if you just laugh or sneeze. It can be a terribly embarrassing condition to have. Doctor Oz suggested that people with Stress Incontinence might want to try an exercise by standing with one leg crossed in front of the other. Then you should push down as if you were trying to poop and sit. If these do not help, there is also an option to have a Collagen Injection which can help with Stress Incontinence.
