NASAL IRRIGATION – Nasal irrigation uses saline - just water & salt - to cleanse the nose. A wide variety of applicators have been used over the years. Lavage or nasal wash bottles direct a saline based solution into the nose. Their effectiveness is limited since the saline solution tends to flow over the top of  the bio-film in a superficial manner. Neti-pots rely on simple gravity and require the head be tilted in an awkward and uncomfortable position.  They too are limited in effectiveness, messy to use, and present similar disadvantages although both may be helpful in providing temporary relief. 

 

PULSATILE IRRIGATION – Pulsatile irrigation's gentle pulsating action applies Bernoulli's principle and the Venturi effect to deliver a cleansing salt-water solution in an easily controlled and effective manner. These principles explain how the upper sinuses drain into the lower sinus creating a siphon effect when the lower sinus cavities of a patient have been cleared with pulsatile irrigation. The oscillating stream of saline washes away the thick bio-film and frees your cilia to help you clear your sinuses of infections and foreign substances that can lead to chronic infections.  Imagine rain drops falling from the sky landing on the soil with a gentle force that breaks apart soil particles.  As this process continues, runoff water travels over the ground, collecting more soil particles dislodged by the rain and transports them to a new location. Pulsatile irrigation mimics a cleansing process present in nature.

 

IS THE SINUPULSE ELITE® BETTER THAN A NETI POT?  ABSOLUTELY,   PULSATILE IRRIGATION HAS BEEN CLINICALLY PROVEN TO BE UP TO 100X  MORE EFFECTIVE THAN NON PULSATING FORMS OF IRRIGATION!

 


    

Neti pots - after 3000 years there must be a better more effective method for nasal irrigation?

Yes, neti pots have been used for over 3000 years and remain an inexpensive method for rinsing out the nasal passages. However, neti pots are by their nature simply nasal wash or rinse devices. They can be messy, uncomfortable, and marginally effective. The SinuPulse Elite® is a state-of-the-art advanced pulsatile irrigation system recommended by leading ENT's, allergists, and used regularly by world champion professional sports teams for proven and effective allergy and sinus relief. Published clinical studies report SinuPulse technology is up to 100X more effective at removing bacteria. Invest in your sinus health with the most advanced nasal irrigation system available.  Your health deserves nothing less!

 

Clinical studies demonstrate that pulsatile irrigation is up to 100X more effective [1], [2], [3] at cleansing and removing bacteria than steady stream irrigation used by neti pots. Neti pots may be adequate for nasal washing but can not break down biofilm, the thickened layer of mucous that forms as a result of chronic allergy and sinus problems.  The intermittent lavage or pulsatile action of the SinuPulse helps to massage nasal and sinus tissues, promote blood flow, restore ciliary function, and remove bacteria
