Are you one of many people battling sinus problems? Allergy season is right around the corner, so here’s a way to prevent getting sick.
I want to sneeze just thinking about it ……
Toxins in Your Nose
If you keep your nasal cavity flushed with saline, you can keep airborne toxins from sneaking farther up your sinuses – you can avoid allergies, chronic head colds, dry eye, and a stuffy nose. If toxins can’t impact your nose, then they can’t go deeper inside of your body.
A Dunk In The Ocean
A dunk in the ocean is always the best way to keep your sinuses clean, but if you are landlocked or live in a big city, take a healthy dunk in the ocean from your bathroom sink.
Did you know that sea animals and people living along the ocean shores typically don’t have allergy problems that people living in highly populated urban areas have?
Why? Because the salt in the sea air and in the ocean water wipe allergens away.
I was born and raised by the Atlantic Ocean in Jacksonville, Florida. We’d go to the beach every Sunday when I was a kid, 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 go to the beach, my mother would make me snuff warm salt water up my nose if I had a glimmer of a head cold.
Yes, I dreaded it, but I never got a cold or allergies.
Today, I still snuff sea salt in a cup of warm water whenever I feel a head cold coming on or have sinus irritation (which is never), I snuff warm salt water up my nose, splash it in my eyes, and swish it around my mouth.
Allergies? Don’t have them.
Dry eye? Never.
Heads cold or the flu? I can’t even remember the last time I had a cold or the flu.
This saline flush can be compared to taking a dunk in the ocean. It flushes your nose, your sinus cavity, and drains into your throat to remove toxins at the back of your mouth.
No More Dry Eye
The saline flush is safe for your eyes, and is no different from getting salt water in your eyes when swimming in the ocean. Plus, your eyes are saturated in salt water. Just taste your tears.
This eye wash helps with dry-eye, and works well enough to avoid using manufactured, and expensive, eye drops.
Saline Flush Recipe
Do this as often as needed to remove toxins, allergens, and other microbes from your sinuses and in your eyes.
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 often as necessary to drain your nasal passages;
- Blow your nose as needed.
Salt is a natural detoxifier, and salt aides in the removal of toxins found anywhere in the body. Every living thing naturally has salt as an essential element for adequate functioning.
When your body’s sodium levels are balanced, your digestive system is stimulated to flush toxins, so IBS and constipation should never be an issue. Sodium serves as a brain stimulator, and healthy forms of salt supply your brain with the necessary trace minerals to stay healthy. And salt cleanses your sinuses of microorganisms that can cause allergies and stimulate colds and a stuffy nose.
So, as more pollutants invade your world, simply keep your sinuses clean using a mild saline nasal flush.
Or, go take a dunk in the ocean.
