It is quite common for our nasal passages to become clogged or blocked, especially with all of today’s pollutants and any other chemical irritants we may come in contact with. Even pollen and dust can be sources of irritation for many people. With all these irritants in our daily lives, it’s no wonder that nasal congestion is a major health complaint.
Among the many indications of nasal congestion, two of the most debilitating symptoms are headaches and pressure behind the eyes, which may indicate sinusitis. Sinusitis is a condition in which the lining of the sinus passages become inflamed due to bacteria inside the nasal cavities. Normally the tiny hairs inside the nasal passages clean out all the unwanted bacteria-causing pollutants; however, when congestion occurs, proper drainage cannot, thus allowing bacteria to grow.
Many individuals seek sinus congestion relief with over-the-counter decongestants; however, these treatments can have harsh side effects. Alternatively, nasal congestion can be relieved naturally with the use of a neti pot. A neti pot is a small, funny shaped little pot that has a long spout with a tapered tip to properly support nasal openings and easily dispense saline solution into the nose.
Alternative health practitioners suggest using a neti pot for maintenance reasons, not unlike brushing our teeth or flossing. However, a neti pot does not need to be used on a daily basis. Using a neti pot is very simple and can be used as an effective sinusitis relief treatment, but some people find the technique to be strange. Nonetheless, the benefits of using a neti pot are so favorable that most people change their minds after the first try.
Sinus Soothe™ is a natural Treatment for Relief of Nasal Congestion, Sinus Headaches and Pain or Pressure Behind the Eyes Due to Sinusitis.
