Neti Wash Flu by Himalayan Institute
Himalayan Institute Neti Wash Flu - 1 oz. (29.5 ml)
Himalayan Institute Neti Wash Flu can be used as a homeopathic relief for flu-like symptoms such as chills, fever, body aches and pains.
The original...since 1972. The Neti Pot naturally cleanses, refreshes, and protects the nasal passages, one of our body's first lines of defense against illness. Recommended today by doctors and pharmacists worldwide, the Neti Pot has been used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic medicine to alleviate sinus and allergy problems. The Himalayan Institute introduced the Neti Pot over 35 years ago, and Himalayan Institute currently offers a full line of high quality products to support a complete sinus cleansing system.
Why a Nasal Wash
The nasal passages are lined with a thin layer of mucus that is one of our body's first lines of defense against disease. A nasal wash keeps this layer of mucus moist, clean and healthy. And compared to other nasal wash techniques, using the Neti Pot is easy. A nasal wash can be as routine as brushing your teeth.
Rinsing with saline solution is a time-honored practice in the Orient. In the West, the nasal wash has been used for decades as a means of treating sinus problems, colds, allergies, and post-nasal drip and to counteract the effect of environmental pollution. Those practicing yoga and other meditative disciplines use the nasal wash to ensure free air flow through both nostrils.
A Healthy Nose
Breathing through the nose filters and conditions the incoming air. The nasal passages are lined with a thin layer of mucus that traps dirt, dust, and pollen and moves steadily to the rear of the nasal cavity and settles in the throat, where it is swallowed. Saline nasal rinses carry some of these impurities out of the body before they reach your stomach.
They also keep this protective layer of mucus functioning properly. If the mucus becomes too thick and dry or too thin and runny, it is easier for bacteria and viruses to penetrate the nasal lining and cause the swelling and excess discharge of mucus we call a “cold.” That’s why gargling or sniffing a little salt water at the first sign of a cold is a staple of folk medicine and why health-conscious people in India use a small pot of saline to rinse the nasal passages. The Neti Pot continues these time-tested traditions of hygiene.
Uses for the Nasal Wash
For some people, the nasal wash is as routine as brushing their teeth. Others use it for specific purposes. Suggestions:
- Do the nasal wash to wake up, clear your nostrils, and start the day breathing freely.
- Use it to remove excess mucus when you are experiencing nasal congestion.
- Do it several times a day during the allergy season to rid the nostrils of pollen and other allergens.
- Use the nasal wash when you’ve been exposed to soot, dust, smoke, or other airborne contaminants.
- Use it to dissolve mucus build-up in dry climates or in air-conditioned or heated rooms, or after air travel.
- Do the nasal wash before practicing systematic relaxation techniques or meditation to help you breathe freely and easily through your nose.
Remember, the nasal wash is not a substitute for medical treatment. Anyone with chronic inflammation of the nasal passages or other ear, nose, or throat disorders should seek medical attention.
Five reasons why the Neti Pot makes sense:
- Soothes dry nasal passages
- Gently washes away dust, pollen, and environmental irritants
- Offsets the effects of breathing dry indoor air (especially in winter)
- Removes excess mucus…naturally
- Helps you breathe freer when practicing yoga or meditation
Once a week during flu season, add 5-10 drops of Neti Wash Flu to your Neti pot along with 1/4 teaspoon of Neti Salt and 8 ounces of warm water; perform the nasal wash as directed in your Neti pot instructions. In order to reinforce the effects of Neti Wash Flu intranasally, place 5 drops under your tongue after irrigation. For optimal results use both methods. May be used more frequently when flu symptoms appear.
