Used for centuries as part of daily health routines around the world, sinus washing is renowned for its ability to keep sinus passages clear of congestion, allergens and everyday debris. In fact, it’s more effective than saline sprays in preventing and alleviating symptoms.
There is growing scientific evidence supporting the use of nasal irrigation for these conditions and supporters of this therapy assert that it is more soothing and less expensive than many over-the-counter drugs; it also lacks side effects such as drowsiness or upset stomach that may be associated with other therapies.
Your nose is a filter that is constantly cleaning out the toxins and debris we inhale every day. Just as you wash your hands to prevent disease, cold and flu, you also want to wash your nose to Keep the Outside Out.™ It’s an all-natural, safe approach to better breathing.
ENTs (Ear, Nose, Throat specialists) and Allergists recommend sinus washing, as part of your daily routine (like brushing your teeth), to patients suffering from allergies and other sinus ailments. Compared to other more complicated remedies on the market, sinus washing is safe, easy and has no side effects.
