Ayurveda recommends washing your sinuses daily in the morning and before bed with a neti pot (a process called jala neti). Sometimes, a wound won't heal until it's cleaned. Ayurveda specializes in cleaning hard to reach places, like your sinuses. Warm, damp sinus tissue may remain chronically infected until they are cleaned out with neti pot. Daily use of neti pot can help to:
  • Remove excess mucus due to congestion.
  • Rid nostrils of pollen and other allergens.
  • Cleanse the nasal membranes of dust, smoke, or other airborne contaminants.
  • Relieve nasal dryness due to air travel.
  • Improve flow of breath before doing relaxation or meditation techniques.
To use a neti pot, mix 1/8tsp of slat into 1c of water. Then tilt the head to the side and pour the saline solution into your nose. Let the fluid drain out of the other nostril. Ayurveda even mixes herbs into neti pot formulas, for stronger affect. Anti-microbial herbs can help kill bacteria and virus. Herbs can help stimulate the circulation (turmeric) and mucus production (triphala) in nasal passages, effectively flushing the sinuses out.
