A favorite with our family and my patients is Dr. Hana’s Nasopure System to keep the sinuses clean and working well. Its design is different than a Neti Pot–it is meant to be used by holding the head upright so that the flushing goes up one nostril, and out the other, without the tilting needed for use in a Neti Pot. This upright mechanism keeps the nostrils clear without taking debris from the nostrils and lower sinuses and flushing it into the deeper sinuses, as occurs with a Neti Pot. Therefore, it cleans without the risk of creating infection deeper in the sinuses. And, they have a sea salt and baking soda buffered solution for effective, comfortable rinsing. Their website has videos, educational articles and instructions on how to use the system. Enter NLT in the promotion code box at checkout for 10% off every order.
Another great product to protect you when traveling, or when the air quality is somehow compromised is the MyAir. This lightweight, comfortable, fashionable mask filters over 99% of airborne pathogens, and helps to create a moist, protected environment if you have caught a cold or flu–no more tickly throats! A great help for those that snore, too. And it’s manufactured completely in America!
