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. Here 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.
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
Nasal Irrigation Studies Show: Nasal wash is an effective way to relieve symptoms and improve the health of patients with sinus problems, and may reduce dependencies on expensive medications.

Make a heaping 1/4 teaspoon of finely ground non-iodized salt (Neti Salt) in the Neti Pot with 8 oz. of warm sterile water until the salt is completely dissolved.
Turn your head to one side over the sink, keeping the forehead at the same height as the chin, or slightly higher.
Gently insert the spout into the upper nostril to create a comfortable seal.
Raise the Neti Pot gradually so the saline solution flows through the upper nostril and out the lower nostril. Breathe through your mouth. If it drains out your mouth, lower your forehead.
Once all the solution has flowed through, face the sink and exhale through the nose to clear the nasal passages.
Refill the Neti Pot and repeat on the other side.
Do one or more of the recommended exercises to drain the remaining water.
Throughly clean your Neti Pot after each use. Periodically place it in your dishwasher for a thorough sanitizing. Same as a toothbrush, do not share your Neti Pot with anyone else. Everyone in the household should have their own.
If you experience burning in the nose, it often means you have not used enough salt. Make sure you are using a 1/4 teaspoon salt or an full scoop included in their salt.
You may notice improved breathing, smell and taste.
If you experience any discomfort please discontinue using your neti pot and consult your doctor or other health care provider.
After The Nasal Wash You may need to do a few simple exercises to expel any saline solution remaining in your nose. Everyone needs to do the first exercise; others will also need to do one or both of the others. The first few times you use the Neti Pot, try them all. Form a habit of doing any which cause water to drain from the nostrils.
Exhalations: Exhale vigorously through both nostrils while holding your head over the sink. Quickly drawing the abdomen toward the spine with each exhalation will make your exhalations more forceful. If you exhale into a tissue, be careful not to pinch the nostrils closed while exhaling.
Forward Bending: Bend forward from the waist far enough so that the top of the head is pointing toward the floor. Hold this position for a few seconds, then return to standing. Follow this movement with a few vigorous exhalations.
Alternate Toe Touching: Place your feet two to three feet apart. Raise the arms out to the side at shoulder height. Slowly bend from the waist and bring the left hand to the right knee, shin, or foot (whichever you can reach without straining). Reach up toward the ceiling with the right hand; turn the head gently and look toward the raised hand. Hold this position for a few seconds. Come back to standing and repeat the movement to the left. Exhale vigorously through the nose.
When you’ve practiced this routine a few times, you’ll find it takes less time than brushing and flossing your teeth.
A 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. Do not place in dishwasher or microwave.

Best combo and price around. Plastic pot and individual packets great for travel, when you really need to clean out those sinuses aft re breathing airplane air and folks coughing all over you. Go to UTube for demo. Dr. Oz and most allergists recommend this for good sinus health. Use at first sign of a cold.
