Jal Neti to clear sinuses to make your respiratory system strong
By Dr. Dhara Bhatt
Neti is a calming method that has a great impact on heart, mind and all vital chakra systems in the body. Regular practice can help keep your nasal passage clean and free of viruses and microbes, making your respiratory system strong. It is effective in dealing with allergies, asthma and chronic sinusitis. It is beneficial in eye problems, headaches, migraines, epilepsy, depression, mental tension, anger and temper tantrums. It brings soothing effects on pineal and pituitary glands and hence balances the hormonal system of your body. It also affects the Ajna chakra helping to bring in more visualization, creativity, concentration and focus apart from improved intuition. Let's see how to do it - Get a Neti pot. Make nasal irrigation using 1 cup lukewarm water. Add 1/2 tsp sea salt in it and mix. Fill the net pot with it and pour water through your left nostril while keeping your head tilted. Keep breathing from mouth. Water will start flowing out of your right nostril. Once you complete the process, blow out freely through both nostrils.
