Dr Oz: Best Products To Fight Insomnia
Dr Oz was spending the month of November sharing Fix or Fail results from his lab, explaining what products and remedies actually work, and which are a waste of your time. He already tackled cellulite and bad breath and next, he wanted to take on insomnia. Max Lugavere took a closer look at some of the more popular remedies. Max first tried taking a warm bath to see if it could help him ease into sleep. The good news is that it worked! A 30-minute bath elevated his body temperature and helped him relax, so that he was ready to go to sleep.
The next night, Max tried the Ostrich Pillow which would allegedly help him sleep anywhere. He said it would be practical for an in-flight nap, but wasn’t exactly practical for everyday wear. On the third night he tried a dark sleep mask, which he said did help to block out the light, but it was bulky and uncomfortable.
Dr Oz: Memory Foam Cooling Pillow For Better Sleep
He also tried drinking warm milk, explaining that allegedly there’s an amino acid in it that facilitates more restful sleep. He said it didn’t help at all. He tried a satin sleep mask, which was a lot more comfortable, so he rated it a fix! He also tried a cooling water pillow, which he had to put water in himself, saying it could work, but it was pretty impractical. He liked the memory foam cooling pillow a lot better. It turns out that you get sleepy in cooler temperatures.
Dr Oz: Chemical-Free Cleaning
Next, Dr Oz wanted to help his viewers find a chemical-free cleaning fix that really works. Lori Greiner from Shark Tank was there as a viewer brought her at-home, chemical-free cleaning fix into the shark tank to find out if it was a Fix or Fail. Along with Lori Greiner, Dr Michael Roizen, Chief Wellness Officer of the Cleveland Clinic, and journalist, therapist Tia Brown, were the “sharks.”
Leslie from Boston said she had a green cleaning solution that could change the way people clean their homes. Leslie said she’s a cleaning coach who tries to teach about green cleaning. She went back to what her grandmother used to use to clean, and found that if you mixed them in just the right way, they really work. She shared her all-purpose cleaner that was vinegar-based.
Dr Oz: All-Natural All-Purpose Cleaner
To take the vinegar smell away, Leslie added lemon grass. She created her “happy hour cleaner.” She had all the sharks smell it to prove that although it’s vinegar-based, it doesn’t smell like it. Just start with vinegar and then add a couple drops of the lemongrass oil to cancel out the vinegar smell. Because vinegar is a natural acid, it will work to cut through grease and grime, while cleaning and disinfecting. Also add lemon juice, vodka, and just 1-2 drops of castile soap, and you’ve got yourself a great all-natural cleaner.
Leslie said it’s all all-purpose cleaner so you can use it to clean any surface you want. But how well does it really work as a cleaner? Eva from the medical team joined the show brought out a table covered in some kind of mess, that measured as 201 on the bacteria-monitor. She swabbed the area after Leslie wiped the table just once with her cleaner, and its germ score was a nine.
The sharks voted this a definite fix, except for Dr Roizen who said “I think vodka should be used for martinis, not cleaning, so I’m out.” Would you use this cleaner in your own home?
