The ancient practice of nasal cleansing is endorsed by MDs and natural health practitioners as an important and highly beneficial technique for overcoming the effect of pollen, dust, dry air, pollution and helping keep the nasal passages free and open.
How To Use
1 Clean your neti pot.
2 Make a solution of saline and sanitized water.
3 Get into position. Bend over the sink and turn your head to the side so that your ear is facing the sink.
4 Breathe through your mouth. In order to close off your throat and mouth from the water rinse, breathe through your mouth. Avoid talking or laughing so that the seal in your throat is not broken, allowing water in.
5 Insert the spout in the upper nostril. Hold it in such a way as to form a seal, preventing water from coming back out the entrance. Raise the pot so the saline solution flows into the upper nostril and out of the lower nostril. If it drains out of your mouth, lower your forehead in relation to your chin.
6 Repeat the process on the other side. Turn your head in the opposite direction and repeat the aforementioned instructions.
7 Remove excess water. When you’ve drained the entire neti pot, rest your head over the sink and blow your nose gently (without using your fingers to pinch it) to remove the excess water. Do this until most of the dripping has subsided and you can breathe relatively easily again.
8 Blow your nose gently into a tissue. Remove the rest of the water and completely clear out your nose by blowing into a tissue.
