The Xlear® Neti Pot with Sinus Care Solution features a specially designed neti pot for natural cleansing of the nasal passages through the gravity-flow of Xlear Sinus Care Solution. This method is effective in gently washing away debris, mucus and contaminants that would otherwise build up.
The Xlear Sinus Care Solution soothes and moisturizes, thus improving the efficacy of this method. The solution combines the traditional nasal and sinus cleansers of pure Celtic Sea Salt® and sodium bicarbonate (as a natural buffer) with all-natural, pharmaceutical grade xylitol.
Ear, Nose, and Throat surgeons (ENT’s) recommend nasal irrigation with a Neti pot or other method for their patients who've undergone sinus surgery, to clear away crusting in the nasal passages. Fundamentally, the Neti pot thins mucus to help flush it out of the nasal passages. The tried and true Neti pot which is becoming increasingly popular in the U.S. originated in Ayurvedic/yoga medical tradition in India, with Neti being Sanskrit for ""nasal cleansing.""
To use your neti pot, tilt your head sideways over the sink and place the spout of the neti pot in the upper nostril. Breathing through your open mouth, gently pour the solution into your upper nostril so that the liquid drains through the lower nostril. Repeat on the other side.
It is recommended that you rinse your pot after each use with distilled, sterile, previously boiled and cooled, or filtered water and leave it open to air dry.
