Nasal Polyps are fleshy growths inside the nasal passages which can cause discomfort and make nasal breathing difficult. They can be reduced in size by steroid sprays, or can be removed by an operation. This operation leaves the nasal passages sore and uncomfortable, but using the SinuPulse Elite can reduce the discomfort and speed up the recovery time. What's more, regular nasal irrigation can reduce the chances of your polyps returning. On this page you can find out how polyps are treated and how nasal irrigation (neti) can speed up your recovery.
Nasal Polyps are usually treated using steroid sprays to reduce their size, or removed using surgery. However, some find that their polyps are not causing severe problems, and instead choose to manage them with regular sinus irrigation to keep the nasal passages clear and moisturised. This minimises the discomfort that polyps can cause.
After surgery the nasal passages can be very sensitive. Nasal irrigation again helps remove irritants from the passages and the saline solution reduces swelling and inflammation, as well as preventing the passages from drying out and cracking. This also helps to significantly reduce the recovery time needed following the operation.
How to use Nasal Irrigation for Nasal Polyps
Nasal irrigation will not cure nasal polyps, but it can make living with them more comfortable. If you have nasal polyps, when first starting with nasal irrigation you should use it a few times a week. If there is no irritation or discomfort caused, then you can increase this to daily use, or even twice daily. This will help keep your nasal passages as clear as possible allowing you to breathe more easily, as well as reducing swelling and bacteria. Long-term use can also help to restore the integrity of membranes. Some find the gushing water aggravates their polyps and is therefore uncomfortable. The SinuPulse Elite also has a mist tip, providing more gently and deep-cleansing application of the saline solution, reducing the chances of irritation and discomfort, while also providing the most effective irrigation.
|Unfortunately I developed polyps, and required Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery to improve drainage, and remove inflammed tissue. I've since found the SinuPulse Elite invaluable in my recovery. Basically, it's helped to clear away debris and blood more effectively than a neti pot or manual squeeze bottle would. It's greatly assisted with healing the nasal passages. I'll be using my irrigation unit on a regular basis, as I enjoy the clean and clear feeling it leaves. I wouldn't be without it now! |

Why choose the SinuPulse Elite?
Nasal irragation, or neti, has been around for thousands of years and is a widely practised form of treatment for a range of conditions. The SinuPulse Elite takes neti to the next level – making it far easier, quicker and more effective than traditional netipots or nasal sprays. You no longer have to have your head at awkward angles to rely on gravity – the SinuPulse lets you keep your head upright and does the hardwork for you. You simply use the jet irrigator to flush out the worst, and then use the spray tip to reach the areas that would ordinarily be out of reach for regular netipots and sprays. The SinuPulse offers the most comprehensive sinus irrigation possible, giving more noticeable and longer lasting relief.
How it works
The key to the SinuPulse Elite is its pulsating mechanism, which help stimulate the body in-built ciliary flow. The cilia are designed to prevent blockages and keep your airways free, but the nose can be so congested that they cannot move. The SinuPulse clears out the blockages, and stimulates the cilia back into action, ensuring both a comprehensive irrigation and also long-lasting relief, as the nasal passages can once again defend themselves.
The SinuPulse Elite comes with a unique spray tip – once your regular irrigation is complete, you can use the spray tip to gently moisture your nasal passages and infiltrate areas that are hard to reach, removing any lingering bacteria or mucus that any regular irrigator simply cannot reach. It ensures that your nasal passages are as clear, sanitised and healthy as can be.
Don't just remove polyps – prevent them from returning
Regular sinus irrigation will keep your nasal passages and sinuses clear, moisturised and healthy. Not only does it flush out bacteria and viruses once you have sinusitis, but it also removes them before they have a chance to enter your system. Dry, inflamed nasal passages are also more susceptible to infection and viruses so keeping them clear, healthy and moisturised gives you the best possible chance of avoiding sinusitis, as well as many other illnesses such as the common cold and flu. It is these types of illnesses that can lead to polyps forming, so by preventing them you also reduce the chances of your polyps returning.
SinuAir Salts Included
The SinuPulse Elite now comes supplied with a month's supply of SinuAir. SinuAir is a 100% natural saline solution which provides the most effective relief possible. SinuAir nasal salts are noticeably quicker to dissolve than many alternatives, and its entirely natural composition is in contrast to the synthetic substances used in many over-the-counter saline products. For optimal results from your SinuPulse Elite, it is recommended to use SinuAir Nasal Salts at all times. You can browse the SinuAir range of products by clicking here.
