Thanks ShoutOut

In this case, the BIG item is writing a book on taking care of your personal filter, your nose.

Sure, there are MANY (too many?) books on sinusitis, some of the best of them I even endorse.  I have them listed on my Amazon Store site (right column on this blog).  It’s just that none of them really provide a care manual for how to take care of your nose and sinuses, at least not in the way that I planned to write my book.

It has been on my to-do list for at least 3 years and well, thanks to Dr. Hana, I won’t need to worry about it any longer.

Known as Dr. Hana to her patients, the author of the book that I wish I had written is Hana Solomon, MD.

Of course, Dr. Hana has done a much better job than I would have.  The title of her book is Clearing the Air One Nose at a Time: Caring for Your Personal Filter.  This is an excellent manual for taking care of your “personal filter”.   The highest compliment I can give it is that I do wish that I had written it.  I will include her book in my Amazon Store list when it becomes available through Amazon.  You can also find it on her site,

Based on her training, experience, and expertise, Dr. Hana has also devised her own saline nasal rinse system, Nasopure (disclaimer: I have NO financial or other arrangements with Nasopure or Dr. Solomon).

I also highly recommend her Nasopure web site, if only for the educational value.  She has THE BEST videos of adults AND CHILDREN doing saline nasal rinses on her site!!  Check it out.  Go to her website, click on the “watch videos” box on the lower left column.  For those parents out there struggling to get their 10-year-old to do this, check out the 2-, 3-, and 4-year-olds easily doing saline nasal rinses!

After chatting briefly with Dr. Hana, I learned that she is a Pediatrician who worked with one of the great pediatric boogor doctors during her training, Dr. David Parsons.  He has been a proponent of nasal saline rinses for decades, and he believes as I do, that if all of our rhinitis and sinusitis patients were doing daily saline rinses we might be out of a job.

And saline rinses are not just for sinusitis – if you or your child have allergic rhinitis, this natural remedy can change your life.

So, thanks to Dr. Hana for helping to whittle-down my to-do list.  Anyone else out there want to take a crack at completing the list for me?  I’d really appreciate it …

Thanks for visiting, and see you here again.  I appreciate your comments and questions.  Keep ‘em coming.  Please, “be excellent to one another.”

Best of health and success to you and your families.

Until next time, remember … you can pick your friends, and you can pick your nose, but you can’t pick your friend’s nose (unless you’re a boogor doctor :~D)


  1. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all
    is needed to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost
    a pretty penny? I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% sure.
    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Appreciate it
