Why nasal wash? The nasal passages contain one of our body's first lines of defense against disease. They are lined with a thin layer of mucus that traps dirt, dust, pollen, germs, and other airborne particles. If the delicate balance of this mucus lining is not maintained, it becomes easier for bacteria, viruses, and other irritants to penetrate the nasal lining and cause problems. Nasal irrigation helps to wash these impurities and excess mucus out of the body. Recent studies have shown that nasal irrigation is effective in improving the symptoms and health of patients with sinus problems.
A nasal wash helps to:
Clear the nostrils and start the day breathing freely
Remove excess mucus
Rid nostrils of allergens
Cleanse the nasal passages of dust
Relieve nasal dryness
Dissolve mucus build-up in dry climates
Improve the flow of breath before exercising or doing relaxation.
The original Neti Pot
The Himalayan Institute created and began distributing the original Neti Pot in 1972. Then, the Neti Pot was individually hand-crafted and offered as a tool for yoga students to enhance their breathing and meditation practices. Now the health benefits of nasal irrigation are well-known and today the Neti Pot has become a household tool for allergy relief and improved breathing.

Remember, a nasal wash is not a substitute for medical treatment. Anyone with chronic inflammation of the nasal passages or other ear, nose, or throat disorders should seek medical attention.
Comments about Himalayan Institute Neti Pot, Ceramic, 1 ea:
I finally bought a Neti pot, and I don't know what I did without it for all these years! I have asthma and severe allergies, and it helps greatly with these. I don't do yoga but I'm sure it would also be so beneficial for those that do. I was a little scared that it would feel weird, but you get used to it quickly--just follow the directions or watch a Youtube video of it. I'll be using it forever!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
