The Nose Knows…..Neti Should Be Your New Best Friend

“I am so stuffy and my eyes are running like faucets, but my allergy tests came back negative!”

Even if you’re not having an allergic response, unseen floating particles can still irritate your body mirroring allergy-like symptoms.

The complaining usually starts as Spring hits us with a barrage of air born particles, pollen, spores and other annoying little buggers. 

How dry I am

As the weather becomes dries up, so does our skin and the delicate mucous membranes lining the nasal passages and sinuses. Dry skin is more sensitive to irritants and can become enflamed more easily, causing itchiness and excess mucous. Because drying out is a natural part of the aging process, you may become more sensitive to irritants that never used to be a problem.

Other culprits that can sneak up your nose

      • Dust and mold
      • Chemical fumes
      • Industrial pollutants 
      • Food items, depending on your constitution

Help is on the way!
Enter…Neti the Super Pot

A neti pot with a simple salt solution can help clear aggravators and excess mucous from the nasal passages.  They are easy to use, taking only a few minutes a day, but can have an enormous impact on your health.
