Sinusitis and allergy sufferers worldwide are finding relief through the natural practice of ‘Neti’ or the cleansing of the nasal passages using a neti pot. For those who suffer from these very common conditions, relief is often hard to find. Sinusitis disrupts sleep, makes it difficult to breath, and can be extremely painful . Many people looking for an alternative to nasal sprays, expensive pain relievers, and overused antibiotics are turning to neti nasal pots for the ultimate relief. Studies have shown that irrigating the nasal passages and cleaning the sinuses can relieve congestion and provide comfort. The use of a neti pot is an inexpensive, simple, and safe way to treat and prevent nasal congestion and sinus problems. Some people are choosing “neti” over surgery to alleviate years of painful discomfort.
What is a Neti Pot?
Neti is the ancient Asian practice of irrigating the nasal passages with a mixture of salt and water. The only items needed are a “neti pot” which looks like a little ceramic teapot, water, and some non-iodized salt available at your local supermarket. The spout of the neti pot is gently inserted into one nostril, while the head is tilted downwards, so that the water flows out of the other nostril. The nose is then dried. It should be done over a sink and takes about only 2-3 minutes from start to finish.
What are the Benefits of a Neti Pot?
- Gets rid of pollen, dust, and irritants that accumulate in the nasal passages
- Clears mucous from the nose
- Relieves sinus pressure
- Improves breathing
- Helps to relieve allergy symptoms and sinusitis
- Inexpensive and easy to use
- No drugs or medications are involved in the neti technique.
The neti pot is not suggested for those who suffer from frequent nosebleeds and should never be used with anything but water and salt. Detailed directions and diagrams are usually packaged with the Neti Pot. Purchase Neti Nasal Pots online, at health food stores, drug stores, and some pharmacies.
