Jala Neti (Cleaning the nasal passage)


 Add about half a teaspoon of salt to a neti pot full of sterile lukewarm water.  Stand with the legs apart. Hold the neti pot in your right hand.  Insert the nozzle of the Neti pot into the right nostril.  Keep the mouth open and breathe freely through the mouth. Tilt the head first slightly backwards, then forwards and sidewards to the left so that the water from the pot enters the right nostril and comes out through the left by gravity. Allow the flow till the pot is empty.  Repeat the same on the left side.  To clear the nasal passages of the remaining water, blow out the water by active exhalation through alternate nostrils as in Kapalabhati.


It helps to clear nasal passages. Removes cold, hypersensitivity, headache, sinusitis, bronchitis and stimulates olfactory nerves.
