Jala Neti (Nasal Cleansing) is an ancient yogic technique used to maintain good sinus and nasal health. The warm saline solution used during Jala Neti helps rinse out dirt and bacteria trapped in the mucous lining of the nasal cavity. The sinus passages will be also be drained as the flow of water through the nasal cavity creates vacuum pressure.
Benefits of nasal cleansing
- reduces the frequency and duration of common colds
- relieves symptoms of chronic sinusitis, asthma
- beneficial for some types of ear disorders
- balances emotions
- relieves headaches, migraine and general mental tension

Not eliminating regularly or having unsatisfying trips to the loo? You might have some junk trapped in your colon that could potentially make you feel ill and sluggish.

- Find a spot near to the toilet
- Lie down on your left side, bend right knee to the chest, relax and insert about 4cm of enema tip into anus
- Lift pot higher than abdomen and saline solution should start draining into your colon
