More people are complaining of sinus issues these days; especially during the change of the seasons. People are sneezing and wheezing all over the world.
Are you one of many battling chronic sinus problems?
Pollutants are increasing in our global skies from wildfires to volcanoes pumping ash and acids into the atmosphere. Radiation from shattered nuclear power plants, like Fukushima in Japan, has been dangerously impacting the global air streams in the Northern Hemisphere since 2011.
The Sun is stirring things up by firing some serious radiation into our airspace as it continues its current solar cycle; Infra Red and UV beams are mixing with air pollution from raging wildfires, war games and burning oil rigs, weather modification, and human pollution.
This makes me want to sneeze just thinking about it.
Toxins in Your Nose
So, what do you do about constant sinus irritation?
Start with your nose.
Always try natural ways to keep your sinuses and eyes clean of toxins as opposed to depending on medications that will dry your sinuses, and eyes. The more meds that you take over time, the more your entire body can be adversely affected.
Keep your nasal cavity flushed with saline, which keeps your sinuses and eyes hydrated, your pH balanced, and disengages live proteins in your nose. If toxins can’t impact your nose, then they can’t get deeper inside of your body.
Sea salt is a one great solution to this problem, so go take a dunk in the ocean.
If you are a city dweller or are land-locked and no where near the sea, simply take a healthy dunk in the ocean from your bathroom sink.
The animals and people who live along sea shores don’t have the allergy issues that people living in highly populated, urban areas have because there is salt in the sea air and in the ocean water. They breath it in every day.
When I was a kid, I lived by the ocean in Jacksonville, Florida. We’d go to the beach every Sunday, and I had a regular weekly “nasal cleanse” every time a wave smacked me in the face.
During the winter months when the water was too cold to swim, my mother would make my sister and me snuff warm salt water up our nostrils if we had a glimmer of a head cold.
Yes, we both dreaded it, but we never got colds or allergies – even to this day.
I still keep sea salt and a cup of warm water next to my bathroom sink, and whenever I feel a head cold coming or have sinus irritation (which is rare), I immediately snuff warm salt water up my nose, splash it in my eyes, and swish it around my mouth.
Allergies? Don’t have them.
Heads cold or the flu? I can’t even remember the last time I had a cold or the flu?
Dry eye? Nope.
This saline flush is safe for the eyes and can detox your eyes and eye lids from proteins, which cause allergies; particulates, like ash; and air pollutants from cars, factories, and human activity.
Natural Nose Rinse Recipe
I do this as often as needed to remove toxins, allergens, and other microbes from my eyes and nose, especially during the change of the seasons when allergens are flying around.
1-cup filtered or distilled water
1/2-tsp sea salt
- Mix approx 1/2 tsp sea salt in one cup warm water;
- Pour saline solution into the palm for your hand and sniff up one nostril at a time;
- Repeat as necessary to drain the nasal passages, and blow your nose as needed.
The Benefits of Natural Salt
Salt is a natural detoxifier, and salt aids in the removal of toxins found anywhere in the body.
Every living thing naturally contains salt as a life-giving element for health and wellness. When your body’s sodium levels are balanced:
- your digestive system stays stimulated to flush toxins, which prevents IBS and constipation;
- natural sodium serves as a brain stimulator;
- supplies the necessary trace minerals to aid immunity;
- cleanses your sinuses of microorganisms that can cause allergies and stimulate colds and a stuffy nose.
So, as more pollutants saturate the air these days, keep your sinuses clean using a mild saline nasal flush.
Or, go take a dunk in the ocean.
