Taking Charge of Your Health

– So who’s ever been laying
in bed at night and you’ve got a little bit of a stuff
nose and you want a quick little trick, well Dr.
Ordon as our resident ear, nose, and throat
doctor I’m gonna let you give our little prescription today. – Okay, if you’re stuffy lying in bed this is what you need to do. Take your thumb gently
press in between your brows like that then alternate
with taking your tongue and touching the roof of
your mouth, your palate. Go back to this. (laughter) Go back to that, now. – And then jump up on one leg. (laughter and applause) – That’s to fix your bunions. Now, what this does, we have
all these very intricate what we call cranial nerves
that are in and around the sinuses of your nose
and what you’re doing, sort of like acupressure. You’re stimulating these
cranial nerves in such a way that it may have effect to
open up your nasal passages. – Well you mentioned
acupuncture can be effective. – It’s sort of like, you are
stimulating certain nerves around the nose, why not? – That was a really good demonstration. Give it up for Doctor Ordon
everyone if you missed anything on today’s show head
to the Doctor’s Thanks for being with us. (applause)

  1. Everybody overreacting about push-ups.
    Yes it clears up your nose, but it's only for a few seconds to few minutes.
    Truthfully, there is no real way to permanently get rid of a stuffy nose.
    If you do pushups every few minutes in the middle of the night, you will not get enough sleep (the sleep itself wouldn't be a deep sleep either so), your arms will probably be sore, and you will get exhausted. I did like 10-15 push ups. My nose cleared for like 5 seconds and now its stuffed again.

  2. put a qtip in your clogged nose and tilt your head back for 30seconds then start sucking in through your nose.

  3. Doctor: put your thumb between your eyebrows – doesn’t work

    Random person in the comments : do 3-5 push-ups- works

    Thank you
