purpose of pulsatile warm saline nasal washing

  • washes out the invading pathogens (bacteria, virus or fungus) and inflammatory mediators — so your natural immune system can overcome the residual invading pathogens successfully.
  • helps nasal mucociliary clearance to remove invading pathogens
  • removes biofilms to improve the medical treatment of rhino-sinusitis
  • antibiotics can not effectively penetrate and eradicate the pathogenic bacteria in the biofilms
  • biofilms play a very important role for medical failure of chronic rhino-sinusitis
  • helps you breathe easier, because salt water can shrink swollen nasal mucosa
  • reduces the use of medications to avoid probable side effects
  • helps wound healing and prevents wound infection after nasal and/or sinus operations
  • highly recommended by ENT specialists as best adjunctive therapy with medication or surgery for sinusitis
