While un-iodized table salt is just as good as the pre-packaged stuff you can buy at the drugstore, they're both just plain salt. That's fine for basic nasal washing, but to get the most medicinal benefits, the key is using natural sea salt and herbals. That's the way it's been done for thousands of years with amazing results.
Albany, NY (PRWEB) August 20, 2007
Thanks to recent media attention, nasal rinsing has become a popular daily routine for chronic sinus sufferers everywhere. A recent USA Today article shows nasal rinsing is heavily on the rise in America with increasing numbers of physicians recommending it to their patients.
Nasal rinsing uses warm salt water to cleanse the nasal passages and sinus cavities. While the traditional method uses a "Neti Pot", something that looks very much like a genie lamp, there are a number of other popular nasal rinsing tools including syringes, bottles and electric applicators.
Wayne Perry, CEO of SiCap Industries, LLC., makers of Sinus Genie nasal rinses, says: "While un-iodized table salt is just as good as the pre-packaged stuff you can buy at the drugstore, they're both just plain salt. That's fine for basic nasal washing, but to get the most medicinal benefits, the key is using natural sea salt and herbals. That's the way it's been done for thousands of years with amazing results."
Sinus Genie is the first brand of nasal rinse salt to combine the medicinal qualities of herbs with the cleansing power of sea salt. This unique product is made by infusing herbal extracts directly into the salt through an exclusive process. The result is a non-caking finely crystallized salt permeated by essential oils, and designed specifically for nasal rinsing.
While most people use plain table salt for their daily nasal rinse, Sinus Genie combines the high mineral content of sea salt with natural herbal extracts. When mixed with water, the salt expels a powerful aroma of Eucalyptus, Lemongrass and Spearmint. Upon rinsing, the sensation is immediate as the herbs and minerals completely flush the sinuses to relieve a variety of sinus and allergy symptoms.
"The fresh feeling is so far beyond what normal saline rinses give you, and it lasts for hours. It cleans out your sinuses like no other product can. Sinus Genie herbal salts really take nasal rinsing to the highest level," says Scott Latella, Director of Sales for SiCap Industries.
