Nasopure - System Kit Nasal Wash System
Nasopure System Kit Nasal Wash System keeps your nose clean the all natural way. Nasopure gently washes away irritants that cause nasal symptoms and discomfort - pollen, mold, dust, dander, bacteria, viruses, and mucous build-up. Developed by a pediatrician using your mother's wisdom.
For year's Dr. Hana has taught her patients how to wash their noses. Dr. Hana particularly encourages those who have allergies, recurrent sinus and ear infections, or asthma. The nose is the body's filter and washing in provides a great dense against environmental cause of nasal and sinus congestion. A clean nose allows the sinuses to drain naturally. Keeping your nose clean makes so much sense and it feels good too.
Nasopure's patented bottle design offers full control over pressure and flow. It also promotes ideal head and neck postion for easy, safe and thorough washing. Nasopurists tell Dr. Hana time and again that daily use has relieved and prevented their nasal woes, allowing them to breathe more easily and help reduce their medication use. Enjoy the Nasopure Effect!

The Nasopure Effect
You might notice that Nasopure strongly encourages new users to carefully read and follow the instructions on nasal washing. This is because they want you to have a satisfying experience. However, there is also a technique to using the Nasopure bottle, a technique backed by scientific principles.
Some wash systems claim to wash out your sinuses, but the Nasopure system washes your nose, and in doing so, encourages your sinuses to drain naturally. This is called the Nasopure Effect. Successfully washing the nose clearing the tiny cilia so they can move effectively again and using a law of physics called Bernoulli's Principle creates the best, the safest and the most complete daily wash possible.
Have you ever noticed how a swiftly moving river draws slower streams into its flow? This is Bernoulli's Principle in action. Bernoulli noticed that as fluid flows more quickly through narrow areas, the pressure within the fluid actually decreases. The faster the flow, the lower the pressure is within that flow. And other connecting areas of fluid are attracted to low-pressure areas. This is why we see small streams pulled into the swiftly moving flow of large rivers.
Imagine your nose, with Nasopure flowing through, is the river you create each time you wash. Your sinuses are stagnant ponds with small outlets allowing them to drain into the nose. When the saline solution flows past these outlets it creates a low-pressure stream that draws out the contents of the sinus cavities; just like a swiftly moving river would drain a small pond. The best part of Nasopure is, YOU control the speed of flow. So, you control the pressure differential. When sinuses and ears are inflamed, you may want to squeeze gently on your Nasopure bottle so you don't irritate tender tissues. Other times, you may want to create a rapidly moving stream of saline that is more aggressive in drawing out the sinuses contents, keeping them open and less likely to become infected. You have control.
For Bernoulli's Principle to work at cleaning out your nose and sinuses, you need to direct the flow of solution across the floor of the nasal cavity so it can flow past the sinus openings, creating the pressure differential that drains the sinus contents. If you shoot your solution up, instead of back, you may be aiming directly at the openings to the sinuses and the ears. This is like diverting your river directly into the pond's outlet, a situation that not only blocks the outward flow, but also can cause transient discomfort as pressure is forced into tiny spaces. This is exactly why they have designed the Nasopure bottle to encourage flow in the most effective direction.
They don't expect everyone to know about Bernoulli and his principle, but they want you to benefit from the science that stands behind the unique design of the Nasopure bottle. So read the instructions, practice your technique, and visualize a swiftly moving river of pure saline flowing past the sinus ponds drawing out their contents and releasing them as the river flows along the floor of the nose. Finally, take a deep breath and enjoy the sensation of a clear nose and open sinuses. So good!
Why Nasal Washing
Saline nasal washings have been used for centuries to maintain clear nasal passages. The process can be referred to as rinsing, irrigation, douching or lavage, but they like to call it what it is: nasal washing. Nasopure is today's ideal nasal wash.

History of Nasal Washing
Nasal washing or nasal irrigation is an ancient Ayurvedic technique known as Jala neti, which literally means "nasal cleansing" in Sanskrit (a classical language of South Asia). With origins based in the yoga tradition, nasal washing has been used throughout India and South East Asia. Although not commonly practiced by Western cultures, these Eastern cultures have performed Jala neti as routinely as brushing one's teeth for centuries.
Traditionally a neti pot, an Alladin's lamp or tea pot shaped vessel, has been used to flow salt water into one nostril, through the sinus cavities and out the other nostril. In addition to using the neti pot, ancient yogis experienced success by snorting salt water in a rhythmic fashion as part of their daily rituals.
In the West, doctors have known the benefits of nasal washing for over a century. Alfred Laskiewicz departmental Head of Pozna Otolaryngology Department (1932-1939) described conservative treatments of nasal irrigation from general hygiene to treatment of Scleraderma. The Proetz procedure has been used by ear, nose and throat surgeons for years to clean out the sinuses.
Various salt rinse combinations have been studied, including isotonic, hypertonic, with and without buffering, and even with additives such as colloidal silver, antibiotics and herbs. Scientific data has continually supported the overall effectiveness of nasal washing. Hypertonic buffered saline solution has been shown to be most effective in treatment of congestion, removal of infectious and allergenic particles, but isotonic buffered works well for overall daily washing.
Nasal lavage has varied from gravity flow vessels, pressure bottles, powered machines, misters, IV bags, sprays, squirts, flushers, bulbs, syringes, squeeze bottles, turkey basters, and other devices have all been tried as well.
Over the past decade, there has been a slow-growing explosion of interest in nasal cleansing. This has been powered by the overall surge in prevention, alternatives and an overall integrative approach to health. Well-known doctors such as Dr. Murray Grossan, Dr Andrew Wiel, and more recently, Dr. Oz have promoted the practice of nasal washing. Although antihistamines, decongestants, steroids, antibiotics are commonly prescribed, doctors have added the adjunct treatment of nasal irrigation for allergy suffers, post operative sinus surgery patients and for patients with chronic sinusitis. Only recently has proactive nasal washing been recommended as a preventative approach.
Today, there are many products created to make nasal washing quicker, easier, more effective and less messy. They all work to some degree, each with their pros and cons, but this is where Nasopure excels. It is the best designed nasal washing system offered the modern alternative to a neti pot.
How Nasopure Works
The Nasopure Nasal Wash Bottle is designed to wash the nose efficiently and comfortably the modern neti. The unique, angled neck allows a neutral head and neck position to achieve the perfect wash. No more bending or twisting the neck. The squeezable, plastic bottle provides precise control of the solution from a light rinse to a steady flush. The applicator tip allows for a tight seal with the nostril for control of pressure and flow. It washes the nasal membranes, while drawing out the sinus contents as the solution exits the opposite nostril. The bottle comes in 4 oz. and 8 oz. sizes and has a closable tip making nasal washing convenient for shower, over the sink use, and travel. And it's perfect for children too.
The Nasopure Wash Salt Mixture is pharmaceutical grade sodium chloride and sodium bicarbonate comes in Swish Stick packets so the solution is always the perfect mix you add water to achieve the salinity you prefer. It can be used as an isotonic or hypertonic buffered solution. See their Solution Guide for more information about their saline mixture.
All-natural Nasopure is safe for anyone with "nose woes". Dr. Hana has taught children as young as two and three to use Nasopure, but they recommend a child's doctor be consulted and approve prior to use. Patients who use Nasopure on a daily basis tell them that it not only offers relief, but it refreshes, too. For them, it's as automatic as brushing their teeth and as refreshing as an ocean swim. Many users report fewer symptoms, fewer infections, reduced need for medications and they notice that they generally breathe easier.
Why not give Nasopure a try? Whether you are bothered by congestion, irritants, or just want to maintain a healthy nose and sinuses, Nasopure will help you wash your nose clean, the natural way.
