It’s allergy season- my car windshield is yellow with pollen. Our sinuses are working hard- we breathe this pollen-laden air. There is an old ayurvedic nasal cleanse called jala neti .  The neti cleanse flushes/rinses out dust, debris, mucus from the sinus. It is used to treat a wide range of chronic sinus symptoms; it is an effective adjunctive therapy. According to patient self-reports it improves quality of life and reduces use of medication, including antibiotics. It is also an effective measure against chronic sinus symptoms induced by work-place exposure to sawdust.

You can buy neti pots at most natural foods stores, or on internet!

Breathe easy!
