I’m pretty convinced that saltwater is the cure for everything…whether a trip to the ocean or gargling for a sore throat.
Nasal irrigation is extremely effective in the fight against allergies, dust, dander, mold and germs. When air is inhaled through the nose it is filtered. This leaves those pesky particulates behind, sometimes causing a reaction. Ever sneeze after freshly grinding pepper?
Using the Neti pot can improve the sense of smell, which in turn improves taste. Who wouldn’t want that?
Jala neti, the Sanskrit term, is even said to clear the mind allowing for greater depth when meditating.
If very congested using the Neti pot might be challenging. But how to use it…Well that’s another story…
