Yoga for Sinusitis

Sinusitis is an inflammation of the sinus glands; this happens due to bacterial and even fungal infection. Many people suffer from sinus for years with no cure. With the help of yoga, sinus can be cured very easily through a technique known as Jal Neti. Jal means water, in this technique warm saline water is passed through one nostril and taken out from the other nostril; it offers relief from sinus, and it is effective for those suffering from hay fever, asthma and allergy. It improves concentration and it is also good for migraine, stress and even eyesight.


Take about half liter of warm saline water in the Jal Niti pot; place the spout of the pot in your right nostril, keep your mouth open and breathe continuously and pour some water slowly. Tilt your neck till the time you reach a position where the water starts pouring out from the other nostril (some of the water might go in your stomach and some might come out through the mouth). Now repeat the process with the left nostril.

Caution: - This technique should be preformed with the help of an instructor.
