The Doctors: Crane Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier Review
Dr. Jim Sears recommended putting a Humidifier or Vaporizer in the bedroom, to keep your nasal passages from drying out in the winter heat. This leads to nosebleeds and dry sinuses. He showed the Crane Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier.
This humidifier is actually what I use in the bedroom at night, and it works great, plus it comes in a nifty teardrop shape. You can click here to purchase a Crane Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifer.
The Drs: Arm & Hammer Simply Saline Neti Pot Kit Review
Dr. Travis Stork recommended the Arm & Hammer Simply Saline Plus Neti Pot Kit. He said he likes it because it uses baking soda, which helps with burning and stinging that sometimes occur when you use a Neti Pot. Read more Tips On Using A Neti Pot.
