Dr. Oz: Where Is The Triangle Of Death
Where Is The Triangle Of Death Dr Oz ? The place on your body that’s teeming with bacteria and viruses, the Triangle of Death can cause illness and disease.
The Dr Oz Triangle Of Death extends from the corners of the mouth to the bridge of the nose. The blood vessels in the triangle drain to the back of the head where it meets up with the veins at the base of the brain. From there it is a quick shot to the cavernous sinus, which receives blood from this nearby web of veins. Infections here can cause vision loss, paralysis, headaches and sometimes death.
DR OZ TRIANGLE OF DEATH
Dr. Oz says today he is going to take us into one of the most dangerous parts of our body. Dr Oz and Assistant Maria performed a little experiment, they both had this plastic triangle which Oz called the triangle of death. He asked maria where she thought the triangle of death was on her body, which is a very dangerous part of the body — a part of your body that is teeming with bacteria, virus’s and all kinds of nasty things. He went on to say that we don’t even realize how dangerous this area is.
Dr Oz Triangle Of Death
Apparently the triangle of death is your nose. They both held up the triangle in front of their face with the base on the top lip and the point fair square in the middle of your forehead, with the good ole nose right in the middle. He showed an artists image of what the skin surface looks like on the outside of nose, the little hairs and two different colours images of of two different bacteria that are there.
Next he showed a real image of the bacteria thats inside the nose, it was not pretty! there are little hairs(cilia) in there that we already know, and then there was white mucus, threaded through the hairs. Those little hairs milk the mucus back and forth, but there were also little yellow circles which is called Staphylococcus, that’s bacteria. Most of us have bacteria growing inside our nose, that cilia–those little hairs milk it and push it back and forth, that’s very important.
Dr. Oz showed us an animation of what happens when you play with triangle of death. The animation showed a women with a pair of tweezers. Now whether it is to pull a nose hair or pop a pimple. The animation showed once the hair was tweezed — the root section which leaves a little hole fills up with blood, the bacteria love to eat the blood, so bacteria begin to grow in there.
The bacteria grow and actually push that bacteria from that triangle of death from the top of your lips up to the top of your nose, into the veins that go deeply into your brain, then we have infection spreading, it swells and pushes on the nerves, and finally as the infection spreads, it will actually squeeze the optic nerve, the one that goes to your eye. When that happens, infections here can cause vision loss, paralysis, headaches, and sometimes even kill you! That is why Dr. Oz calls it the triangle of death.
Dr. Oz says when you pick your nose you are playing in the triangle of death. When you pick your nose your finger nail does the same thing to the lining, when you cause a crack in the skin on those little hairs. Dr. Oz presented us with some solutions. The best solution he said that when we get a little break in the skin in the nose area and between your eye brows it’s worth it to put a little antibiotic ointment on it, just to prevent an infection from going any deeper.
Dr Oz Picking Your Nose
The second thing Oz said he loved talking about was how do you actually clean your nose if your not allowed to pick it, and your not allowed to cut the hairs, or pluck them. He joked with his assistant to use scissors with rounded edges to cut his nose hairs which she was willing to do, but instead he picked up a little device with a rotary blade, and as it spins it protects from cutting you with an outer sheath. Use rotary nose-hair trimmers that gently cut the hairs rather than pulling them out at the root. So Maria was up Dr. Oz’s nose with a nose hair trimmer, and everyone had their laugh for the day.
Any time you pick your nose, tweeze out a nose or lip hair, pierce the face, or pop a pimple, bacteria collects in the wound and can invade the triangle of death’s blood supply. Similarly, facial wounds, surgical incisions and gums can become an avenue of infection. The best mode of prevention is to be a non-picker.
- Clear nasal passages with a nasal rinse and a neti pot as part of your daily morning hygiene routine
- Gently clear crust from the nose carefully using a clean tissue and not your nail or other device
- Avoid popping or picking at facial pimples, blackheads, cuts and scabs
- Treat any facial infection, sore or cut immediately
- Line your nose with a emollient jelly to make it less crusty
- Use rotary nose-hair trimmers that gently cut the hairs rather than pulling them out at the root
- Rethink the facial piercing
