Ancient Secrets Nasal Cleansing Plastic Pot Suggested
Step 1: Prepare the Saline Solution
Use non-iodized fine table salt or USP-grade Nasal Cleansing Salt. Mix ¼ teaspoon of salt into about 8 oz of warm water. Water should be pleasantly warm (not “hot” or “cold”) to the touch.
Step 2: Fill Your Nasal Cleansing Pot:
Pour the mixed saline/warm water solution into your nasal cleansing pot. (You may choose to mix the solution directly in the pot.)
Step 3: Practice of Nasal Cleansing
Best to practice over sink or basin to catch the
water and mucus. Tilt your head to one side. Insert nozzle of nasal pot into upper nostril. Slowly raise pot to start water flow, the water flow will work best once you achieve the correct angle
of the head. (Most people find that the head should be tipped slightly forward
and to the side so that your lower eye can see the sink drain or bottom of basin
out of the corner of the eye.)
It make take a few seconds for water flow to start. Once you achieve the correct
angle it will flow steadily with the water flowing in the “upper” nostril and out the lower nostril.
While practicing nasal cleansing continue to breathe easily through your mouth. (The water will flow easily without going down your throat. If you notice any
water trying to go into your mouth or throat, tilt head slightly more forward.)
After completing one side, reverse the tilt of the head and do it through the other nostril. Some people use half a pot per side. Others a full pot per side.
Step 4: Completing the Process
Upon completion, exhale gently several times to clear the nasal passages. You may want to use a tissue to catch any excess mucus. Be sure not to close off the nostrils as you are gently blowing through your nostrils.
Some people find it beneficial to do side or forward bending to allow easier drainage afterwards. (Experiment with what works best for you.)
Once you get used to it, the entire process only takes a couple of minutes to complete.
