Clinical studies have proven allergy drops to be an effective alternative to allergy shots. Allergy drops are taken home and administered under the tongue by the patient, allowing them to only have to make clinical visits one to two times per year after the initial test.
Tinnitus affects over fifty million people in the U.S. Tinnitus is described as a nagging buzzing, whistling, whining, or screeching noise in head or ears that varies in intensity and can be intermittent or constant. The degree of loudness and even the type of sound is particular to each person. Some tinnitus sufferers describe the noise as being as piercing and sharp as the signal used in the emergency broadcast system. Tinnitus is a symptom, not a disease, which can accompany any type of hearing loss.
Snoring is a fairly common, affecting 40 percent of men and 25 percent of women. Not only is snoring a nuisance, but 75% of people who snore have obstructive sleep apnea (when breathing is disrupted during sleep for short periods). Studies show that around 80% of the obstructive sleep apnea cases go undiagnosed which increases the risk of heart attack, stroke and diabetes in adults.
Q-Tips are widely used all around the world by many people for one thing – to get rid of the wax inside their ears.
While you have your ears free from wax, this particular cleansing routine can be dangerous to your ears and their function. This routine is also counter-productive. While you may see some amount of residue on the cotton swab, inserting Q-tips actually cause the wax to go further into the ear canal instead of getting all of it removed. Swabbing in your ears can actually affect your sense of hearing, the moment that the ear wax gets into the eardrums instead of going out the ears.
