Mold and Your Sinuses

It’s time to talk about airborne allergies again. Instead of focusing on the usual culprits of trees, flowers and grasses, this blog will focus on mold, a form of fungi. While mold grows year round, spring is just the start of its proliferation; especially in a year such as this with a mild winter and wet spring.

What is mold exactly? Like most fungi, it likes moist, warm places. Mildew, which is the stuff along your shower, is the early stages of mold. Mold is an essential...Read More

Truth About Plastic Neti Pots

April 25, 2012

Green Nose!

With so many neti pots on the market these days I can’t help but write about the plastic ones and their impact on the environment. In 1996 when we began producing our Baraka neti pot, there were only a handful of companies making them, and like ours, most were ceramic.

Suddenly neti pots could be found everywhere and most of them were made of plastic.

While...Read More

March 20, 2012

Name that Congestion!

If you’re confused about the difference between rhinitis and sinusitis, you’re not alone. The symptoms can seem quite similar. Searching the internet, you’ll find that rhinitis and sinusitis are used interchangeably. However, distinct differences remain.

Both conditions refer to inflammation, rhinitis is inflammation of the nasal cavity (just inside your nose); while sinusitis is inflammation of the sinus cavities.  Both can...Read More

Holistic Health First

With cold and flu season in full swing, your sinus infection could be hanging around longer than you’d like, causing headaches and low energy levels.  Before heading to your doctor, we suggest trying a few holistic remedies listed below.

Hypertonic Rinse

A hypertonic rinse is a great way to ease inflammation and liquefy mucous.  To create this solution, simply double the amount of salt you are using in your neti pot; 1 heaping teaspoon to 10 oz. of water. For...Read More

Did You Ever Break Your Nose?

One day a friend pulled me into her bathroom and said, ‘Watch this.’  She took out her neti pot, made a saline solution and proceeded to rinse. Not so strange in my world – until she switched to the other nostril. It was then the saline solution ran from her mouth instead of her nose. She tried many angles to shift the flow, but it still ran out of her mouth. I’d seen this before and asked if she had ever broken her nose. She nodded...Read More
