Why a Nasal Cleaning?
The nasal passages are lined with a thin layer of mucus that is one of
our body's first lines of defense against disease. A nasal wash keeps
this layer of mucus moist, clean and healthy. This gentle and effective technique of
nasal irrigation is widely recommended by
health practitioners worldwide as a wonderful way to improve your
overall feeling of well-being and maintain radiant, vibrant health.
A nasal wash can be as
routine as brushing your teeth. For regular health maintenance use 1-2 times
upon rising and at least an hour before bedtime (which gives the mucous
in your sinuses a chance to drain before you lay down). You may use
more often if congested or infection is present.
The Nasal Cleaning
is helpful in treating sinus and nasal congestion, pressure, infections,
nasal drip and headaches or used as a daily health
and more yoga practitioners are now hopping on the Neti bandwagon.
The practice of Neti helps
increase breathing competency (which clearly would benefit any
yoga practitioner). When breathing techniques and ability is
strong, our body chemistry returns to a balanced state. For
regular healthy maintenance use 1-2 times a day, upon rising
and at least an hour before bedtime.
The practice of nasal
The practice of nasal irrigation, known as Neti, has been used by
practitioners of Yoga and Ayurvedia in
India for hundreds, if not thousands of years. Neti is
one of the six purification techniques undertaken prior to the practice
of yoga to help prepare the body. It is referred to in the
original yogic texts known as the Hatha Yoga Pradipika
and the Gheranda Samhita. It is described at some
length in the Complete Illustrated Book of Yoga by
Swami Vishnu Devananda, published in the USA as early as 1960. Some
teachers consider nasal irrigation valuable in cleansing the
energy channels and balancing the right and the left
hemispheres to create radiant, energetic health and wellness, which
the foundation upon which true yogic practice can come to fruition.
While there are advanced techniques using various herbs and herbal oils,
the simplest technique, known as Jala Neti
uses water (jala) for the cleansing process. Lukewarm water is
used to gently open up the nasal passages. Use of a neti pot or
vessel is recommended to ease this process. Advanced
practitioners may use this pot also for the herbal or oil administration
(referred to as nasya) as well. Useful for removing dirt,
pollen, excess mucous, and other irritants. Soothing and
moistening to dried out passages. Traditionally used as a
purification exercise for the practice of yoga.
The technique is not as hard or
uncomfortable as one may first think.
Once learned, the practice can be done in about 3 minutes.
1. Prepare the saline solution (often 1/2 teaspoon) and fill the pot.
2. Tilt your head to the side.
3. Insert spout of Nasal Cleansing Pot gently into the
raised nostril creating a seal between Pot and nostril.
4. Raise the Nasal Cleansing Pot slowly to develop a steady
flow of saline solution through the upper nostril
and out the lower nostril.
5. During the process breathe through your mouth.
6. Upon completion, exhale firmly several times to clear the
7. Reverse the tilt of your head and repeat the process on
the other side.
If you experience an uncomfortable sensation, adjust the temperature of
the water slightly or decrease the amount of salt in saline solution.

A Note From
Owner of Momentum98
The Practice of Neti is so successful that
responses from first time users often changes from:
"There is no way I am going to do that!"
"Wow, this is great!"
it a soothing and pleasant practice once they try it. If you are one of the many people who find that your nasal
passages are blocked as a result of the effects of pollution,
dust, pollen, and other irritants, you may find this a simple
cleansing technique of invaluable benefit to you.
In the early 1990's, I
became the first distributor to sell the Neti Pot in the U.S. And
like the Ancient Coning Candles, sales started skyrocketing
immediately. When you are the only one progressive enough to
carry such a "weird" product, people flock to your
doorstep. Since then, we have sold thousands of Neti Pots.
We carry several competing Neti/Nasal
Pots that are on the marketplace now.
They all work. They are all great. They all do the same thing.
* They soothe dry nasal passages.
* They gently wash away dust, pollen, and irritants.
* And, they remove excess mucous.. naturally.
Picking a Neti Pot is
simply a process of personal preference.
Some like the Neti Pot because it is the original!
Some people like the plastic one because it won't break in the bathroom.
Others like the artistic Nasal Pots because of their beauty.
And others like the Nasal Cleansing Pot because of its lower price.
