Now that spring is arriving for some parts of the nation that also means allergy season for many who suffer annually from allergy symptoms.  We are thrilled to have found this simple, harmless and effective nasal irrigation system as a wonderful way to improve your overall well-being and maintain vibrant health.  The main benefits of using a nasal cleansing pot are:

• Clear the nasal passages

• Remove excess mucous

• Reduce dust, pollen, and smoke by cleansing nasal passages

• Relieve nasal dryness

• Reduce concentration of airborne germs

My husband, Sheppard, first heard of using a neti for nasal cleansing from Monte Kline, a Clinical Nutritionist in Portland, Oregon.  Sheppard started the practice of nasal cleansing first as an effective allergy remedy while he had a lawn care service.  He found it especially beneficial during the hot, dry days we have in Florida because the dust he’d breathe in would give him fits.  He used to suffer a lot with his chronic allergies during the heavy pollen seasons twice a year as well until he found this simple allergy remedy.

We now both regularly cleanse our nasal passages.  I recommend it if you have any nasal congestion, especially as a result of a head cold and sinus conditions.

Here is the nasal irrigation solution we use and how to use a neti pot:

1) Add 1/2 teaspoon of Celtic Sea Salt to the pot.  I sometimes add 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda and my husband sometimes will add a pinch of cayenne pepper (he’s braver than me).

2) Add lukewarm purified water, not too hot to the touch, and stir to dissolve the salt.

3) Following the directions that came with your nasal cleansing (neti) pot.  Run one pot through one nostril.

4) Repeat steps 1 – 3 for the second nostril.  You can reverse the order during subsequent times.

For maintenance once a day is generally sufficient, but if you have allergies or head congestion you should cleanse 2 to 3 times a day.  If you suffer regularly from blocked sinuses you too will be glad to know of this simple solution.

  1. Here’s another alternative an ENT doc gave me. Find a nasal spray bottle (I emptied one I had bought) and purchase a product called ALKALOL. Spray 1 or 2 sprays in each nostril and it really clears the sinuses and moisturizes the nasal linings. I’ve used this for at least 20 years and love how, especially in the morning, it clears and opens up my sinuses. You can find Alkalol at any pharmacy, but you’ll have to ask the pharmacist. The cost is approximately $5 for 16 oz. (Last me about 6 months.) I’ll quote what’s on the bottle “Alkalol is an alkaline saline solution specially formulated to clean and moisturize the nasal passages, dissolve mucus, kill germs and bacteria, and provided natural relief from the symptoms of sinusitis and allergies.” I can attest this is true. And just for fun, when I started buying it, it cost 99 cents!!!!!

    1. Fran,
      I think the saline solutions are good too, but the flushing with the Celtic salt water gets the stuff that you can’t even feel is there. It’s amazing how much comes out! The saline would be a good solution for traveling or while at work.

      Thanks for sharing,
      Lynn
