Nasal irrigation & decongestion


The use of nasal irrigation dates back centuries to yogic and ayurvedic traditions where hypertonic saline solutions were used for nasal irrigation for purification purposes as part of the preparation process. Western medicine has adopted this practice since the 19th century where nasal irrigation has been recommended for the treatment of sinonasal pathology.

Nasal irrigation and thus cleansing -performed using a neti pot (neti in Sanskrit means "nasal cleansing"), nebulizers or most commonly nasal sprays- is being used extensively in modern medicine to flush out dust, debris, pollutants, allergens, germs and excess mucus from the nose and sinuses which can lead to sinonasal blockage and infection.

Whereas nasal irrigation can be carried out using ordinary tap water, this is generally felt to be uncomfortable because it irritates the mucous membranes. Therefore an isotonic or hypertonic salt water solution is normally used.
