Natural Sinus Care Made Easy
If you suffer with occasional sinus issues and would like to try a natural approach, nasal irrigation may be just the therapy you're looking for. It involves flushing your nasal passages with saltwater in order to stimulate the cilia. These tiny hair-like strands flow back and forth, carrying mucus up towards the throat. Many people believe that this irrigation offers temporary relief from sinus pressure and congestion.
Baraka offers a natural health product called Neti Pot Starter Kit that provides all you need to address sinus issues naturally through nasal rinsing.
- A lead-free ceramic neti pot
- 2 oz. French Atlantic grey sea salt
- An instruction card
This ceramic neti pot holds ten ounces of water. It is lightweight, easy to use and dishwasher safe. The French Atlantic grey sea salt contains beneficial substances that naturally dissolve mucous. It is hand-harvested from a pure, unpolluted environment. Its pH level is very similar to that of the body, so it is gentle on your sinuses.
If you're interested in trying nasal rinsing as a natural approach to occasional sinus issues, consider Baraka's Neti Pot Starter Kit.
How to Use Neti Pot
1. Fill your neti pot just below lip with distilled or boiled water - cooled to room temperature.
2. Add a heaping 1/2 tsp of mineral sea salt. Stir until thoroughly dissolved.
3. Bend over sink and turn your head to one side.
4. Keeping pot level, place spout into your top nostril until it fits snugly.
5. Breathe through your mouth and slowly tip your head downward allowing warm water to travel up through your sinuses and out the other nostril.
6. You may need to adjust the angle of your head slightly in order to allow the water to flow out the other nostril.
7. Use half the water and repeat on the other side.
8. Blow your nose gently to remove excess water and mucus.
Once you're done, it is helpful to bend over at the waist (with top of your head pointed towards floor) and exhale to release any trapped water.
For maintenance: Some people benefit from rinsing daily as it opens up their sinus passages. Others may find it too drying. See what works best for you and contact us if you need help.
For colds: Rinsing 2 to 4 times a day can be helpful to flush out infection and liquefy mucus. Do this for the duration of your cold.
For allergies: Rinsing at least once a day will help you flush out the pollen. In addition, people get relief from using a hypertonic rinse.
For chronic sinus problems: Listen closely to your body. Everyone is different. Some people benefit from rinsing daily, while others do it once a week.
What time of day is best?
When you first wake up and at least an hour before bed (this allows your sinuses to drain before you sleep). If you have a cold, you may want to rinse during the day. If you have allergies, rinsing at the end of the day to clear your sinuses from pollen may be your best bet.
If you experience a bit of stinging, adjust the level of salt. People tend to use too little salt. Also adjust the water temperature - it may be too hot or cool for you.
