If you suffer from sinus and upper respiratory problems you’re not alone. In the United States one in five people suffer from allergies or asthma. And one in three people suffer from nonallergic rhinitis, chronic allergy-like symptoms, such as runny nose, cough, and congestion.
Enjoy better health through nasal cleansing:
Bacteria and germs are all around us. They live on the surfaces that we touch and in the air that we breathe. With germs and bacteria all around us, how do we prevent them from entering our bodies?
The nose protects the body from disease by filtering out bacteria as you breathe through the day. Did you know that on average we touch our noses 250 times per day and 30% of the population carries staph aureus in the nose? The Center for Disease Control has stated that, “Hand washing is the most effective way of reducing communicable disease.” We wash our hands to clean them and we are also cautioned to keep our hands away from our mouth and nose, but more than ninety percent of infection-causing bacteria enter the body through the nose and thrive in the nasal passages. How do we keep our nasal passages clean and free of harmful germs?
Using a nasal cleanser is a great solution. It can help reduce and prevent allergies, congestion, ear infections, sore throats, coughs, and asthma. Nasal cleansers can bring relief during allergy, cold, and flu seasons, at the first sign of congestion, before using a CPAP machine or after being exposed to irritants, pollutants, or airborne infections.
At Home Environment Center we carry a few nasal cleansing options:
Xlear Nasal Spray and Wash with Xylitol, Nozin Nasal Sanitizer and the Nasopure Nasal Wash System.
The Benefits of Xylitol
Xylitol is one of bacteria’s natural enemies. When certain harmful bacteria enter the body, they attach to the membranes of the nose and throat and multiply causing infection. Xylitol moisturizes the nasal passages and prevents the bacteria from sticking, allowing your body time to remove them and reduce your risk of infection.
Xlear Sinus Relief Nasal Spray and Xclear Nasal Wash with Xylitol.
Made with Xylitol, Xlear (pronounced “clear”) is a patented, non-addictive nasal wash designed to aid in the relief of sinus irritation caused by pollutants, allergens and infections of the nasal passages. It is the only nasal wash that combines the unique properties of the natural substance, Xylitol, and the health-promoting practice of a saline nasal spray to help wash, hydrate and moisturize the sinus nasal passages.
What is in Xlear Nasal Wash?
Xlear Nasal Wash contains xylitol, purified water, saline and grapefruit seed as a preservative. Purified water, saline, and grapefruit seed extract (GSE) are found in over-the-counter nasal moisteners that have been used for years. Xylitol is the key ingredient that makes Xlear Nasal Wash so revolutionary and effective
Is Xylitol Safe?
Xylitol is a remarkable substance. It is all natural and is non-habit-forming. The World Health Organization and the FDA have given xylitol their safest ratings for food additives. Babies and small children can use Xlear Nasal Wash without restriction.
The Nozin Nasal Sanitizer:
The Nozin Nasal Sanitizer is like hand sanitizer for your nose. It combines the active ingredient, ethanol, with antioxidant-rich natural emollients to provide a safe, highly effective antiseptic for the nose. It is easy to use, pleasant, moisturizing, and not an antibiotic. It has been shown to decrease staphylococcus aureus by 90% in one day and will not contribute to antibiotic resistance.
Nasopure Nasal Wash System
It is a simple, soothing, and safe nasal wash system. The Nasopure bottle is a patented design that eliminates the sensation of drowning or choking that many people experience when using a neti pot or squeeze bottle nasal wash system. It is also economical and easy to use, for everyone in the family.
