With the "colds" season in full bloom and "allergy-time" on
the horizon, I just had to tell you of a natural technique
that thousands use to keep their colds, headaches and
allergies far away.
This SINGLE technique will keep the
sniffing, wheezing and sneezing at bay…..
I guarantee it!.
The amazing yoga cleansing technique is called "jalaneti"
or simply "neti". Popularly called saline nasal
irrigation, it NOT only keeps the sinuses primed up but also
keeps the mind fit and calm - a little known aspect of its
A real scary thing about colds, throat infections and
allergies is that you can feel them approaching but feel
helpless to do anything about it. Drugs - at best - only
suppress the symptoms adding their own unique ones in the
Neti changes all that. Not only is it the ONLY
preventive, but even if the symptoms do strike you, you can
hold them from exploding into a full blown suffering.
How it is done?
To put it briefly, a special NETI POT is filled with
warm and saline water. The spout of the pot is then inserted
into one nostril. The position of the head and pot are
adjusted so that the water flows out of the other nostril.
This procedure is then alternated with the other nostril.
That's it. The water drains out flushing the nasal
passages and the linings thoroughly. After these the
nostrils are dried out through special techniques.
The way in which Jala Neti rinses out the dirt and
bacteria filled mucous lining would
obvious to most people as the warm water loosens and
dissolves any internal build ups, and takes them
outwards. But what may not be so obvious is that, due to
gravity and a venturi-effect, the sinus passages are also
drained by the vacuum pressure flow of the water.
Whereas it would normally be impossible to drain a "dead
end" cavity like the sinuses, Jala Neti achieves this
ingeniously and simply.
As the water flows past the nasal passages it "sucks" out
the virus-infested mucus from the sinus cavities flushing
them clean with the saline water.
Why is this technique little known?
Well, can you imagine the loss of revenue for the entire
colds and nasal allergy drug market if this 'humble' natural
technique was to become popular? Think about it and you'll
know why the drug lobbies will never oblige. Heck… I
wouldn't be too surprised if you'll even have them preach to
you "side effects" of this 100% natural, chemical-free
Talking of side effects, the only ones are the
"up-side" effects. Let's see what neti does AND has been
doing for centuries….
- At the immediate level,
neti is a great tool for any kind of respiratory
disorder - sinusitis, allergy, asthma, hay fever to name
a few. People invariably notice an immediate relief
which drugs fail to achieve.
- It is of great benefit
to problems associated with the eyes and ears
such as certain types of deafness, tinitis and myopia.
- As one learns the
advanced stages of neti, it works wonders for throat
infections. It helps to re-program the body's
natural mechanisms against respiratory complaints
including sore throats and coughs.
- Neti has a cooling and
soothing effect for the brain and is therefore
beneficial for headaches, migraine, depression, mental
tensions and even epilepsy, hysteria and temper
- From the yogic
perspective, it stimulates the olfactory bulb and the
psychic center called the Ajna Chakra. What this means
is that it stimulates better powers of visualization
and concentration and gives a feeling of lightness and
clarity to the mind.
But the INSTANT benefits are what it does to the
sinuses. You don't have to look far to see how HUGE the
benefits are for sinus infections and symptoms. We have
euphoric users writing in to us every SINGLE day
am a RN/Paramedic who has allergies and asthma. I have
had two sinus operations and depend on the use of
Claritin D and Flonase every day. My nasal breathing
(now) is just amazing!! The neti pot is so easy to use.
I have cut my dose of Flonase in half. I will be a neti
pot user for life. I plan on introducing patients and
family members to this practice.

True to our tradition of working with beginners, we
have worked to make neti an easy and delightful practice
through the right neti pot as well as the
instructional Video CDROM. This has not only helped
beginners overcome the initial fear but also helped them
move up to the advanced neti stages quite easily and
gain the fullest benefits.
To evaluate these tools and read about what users are
Almost ALL of us have suffered from colds, its
effects as well as nasal allergies at some time or the
other. Now is the opportunity to put such suffering
behind us… permanently and naturally.
