Neti pots come from a 3,000 year old health practice in India, called ayurveda. The ayurvedic system of health care recommends daily cleansing of the sinus cavity by irrigation with saline solution. Because this practice of nasal irrigation provides simple, safe and drug-free relief from colds and sinus ailments, neti pots are being re-discovered in 21st century America. Unlike some nasal irrigation devices which use pressure to introduce saline into the nasal passages, a neti pot uses gravity to allow the solution to flow gently into one nostril, through the sinus cavity and out the other nostril, simply by tipping the head slightly to one side. Unwanted nasal fluids are expelled along with the saline as it exits the lower nostril. In cases of severe congestion, the procedure may be repeated until the saline flows freely.
Many people have found that the practice of nasal irrigation using a neti pot brings relief from nasal congestion due to colds or allergies, when drugs did not. Others prefer to use a mechanical means of cleansing the nasal cavity. A daily regimen helps keep the natural mucus lining of the nasal passages free of environmental impurities.
