Guest Column: Washing hands and covering coughs aren’t enough!

Washing the body’s filter flushes those germs away!

Jan. 10, 2007, Columbia, Mo., BeWell Health Products, Inc, a company founded by mid-Missouri Pediatrician Hana Solomon has announced the worldwide launch of their newest line in nasal washing products, Little Squirt to go™, in grocery stores, pharmacies and online at This product is ideal for travelers and children.

Nasal washes are a natural addition to daily cleansing routine of showering, washing hands and brushing teeth. Nasal washing helps people with nasal, sinus and ear problems caused by colds, allergies, infections and exposure to pollutants and smoke. Nasal washes can also decrease the need for antibiotic treatment. Published medical studies support nasal irrigation. The nose is the body’s air filter, and it is responsible for protecting the lungs. Viral particles enter the body through the nose, the mouth, and the eyes—in that order. So while washing hands and covering coughs are both important, washing the nose is truly essential to maintaining good health.
