Post Nasal Drip
Post Nasal Drip: How nasal irrigation can help
Post-Nasal Drip is a condition often caused by another existing infection, such as Sinusitis. PND is where mucus drips down the back of the nasal passages into the throat, causing a sore throat and coughing, often lasting for several weeks. Other symptoms include losing your voice, runny nose, bad breath and difficulty in breathing. Using nasal irrigation can significantly speed up the recovery of PND and make it more manageable in the meantime.
If you are suffering from PND then nasal irrigation can provide fast, effective and long-lasting relief. Nasal irrigation, also known as neti, flushes out your sinuses and nasal passages; removing blockages, reducing swelling and inflammation and quickly reducing or elimiating your symptoms. With the SinuPulse Elite, sinus irrigation has taken a huge step forward.
How does neti compare to other PND treatments?
Neti is the only proven method of treating post-nasal drip that has no unwanted side-effects. Most GPs will prescribe a course of antibiotics, but while they can help deal with your PND they also increase the likelihood of it happening again. Part of the body's natural defence is so-called “good bacteria”, that you body relies on to fight harmful bacteria. Antibiotics kill both the harmful bacteria, and also the good bacteria. This means that it is likely to cure your PND, but leaves you open for it to return again shortly afterwards.
Other medication, such as paracetomol, ibuprofen or cough syrup, may help reduce the symptoms of post-nasal drip but do not treat the root cause of the problem – they simply mask it temporarily. Neti not only reduces the symptoms, but helps to remove the bacteria causing the PND. It provides instant relief but also long-lasting protection.
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 cure post nasal drip – prevent it
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 an infection, 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 which can then trigger post-nasal drip.
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.
