Battling Sinus Problems and Allergies?
More people are complaining of sinus issues these days, and complaints are coming in from all over the world. Are you one of many battling sinus problems?
Worldwide, there are volcanoes pumping ash and acids into the atmosphere; radiation from shattered nuclear power plants is dangerously impacting the global air streams; the sun is firing some serious radiation into our atmosphere, and Infra Red and UV beams are mixing with air pollution, particulates from global wildfires, and volcanic ash.
This makes me want to sneeze just thinking about it.
Solid matter is channeling by the bucket-load into our global wind currents, and our planet has become saturated with both natural and man-made pollutants. As the magnetic field gets weaker and the ozone thinner, these particulates combine to alter pressure and wind patterns, both around the world and in your hometown.
Toxins in Your Nose
So, what do you do about it? You keep your nasal cavity flushed with saline, and keep these toxins from impacting your sinuses, which leads to sinus issues, allergies, and chronic head colds. If toxins can’t impact your nose, then many can’t get deeper inside of your body.
Sea salt is a wonderful solution to this rising problem. If you are an urban dweller or live landlocked, take a healthy dunk in the ocean from your bathroom sink. Think about this: sea animals and people living along the ocean shores don’t have the allergy issues that people living in highly populated urban areas have because there is saline in the sea air and in the ocean water.
When I was a kid, I lived by the seaside in Jacksonville, Florida. We’d go to the beach every Sunday, 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 swim, my mother would make my sister and me snuff warm salt water up our nostrils if we had a glimmer of a head cold. Yes, we both dreaded it, but we never got a cold or allergies.
Fifty years later, I still keep sea salt and a cup of warm water next to my bathroom sink, and whenever I feel a head cold coming 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? Nope.
Heads cold or the flu? I can’t even remember the last time I had a cold, and what’s the flu?
This saline flush can be compared to taking a dunk in the ocean. It flushes the nose, the sinus cavity, and drains into the throat to remove toxins at the back of the mouth.
It is also safe to flush your eyes with this solution to cleanse the eyes and eye lids, and is no different than getting salt water in your eyes when swimming in the ocean. This helps with constant dry-eye, and works well enough to avoid using manufactured, and expensive, eye drops.
Natural Nose Rinse Recipe
Do this as often as needed to remove toxins, allergens, and other microbes.
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 necessary to drain the nasal passages, and blow your nose as needed.
The Benefits of Natural Salt
Salt is a natural detoxifier, and salt aids in the removal of toxins found anywhere in the body. Every living thing naturally contains 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 saturate the air these days, simply keep your sinuses clean using a mild saline nasal flush.
Or, go take a dunk in the ocean.
