Frequently Asked Questions

What exactly is Pulsating Nasal Irrigation?

Pulsatile irrigation uses saline or salt water to cleanse the nose and help restore nasal ciliary function which is the key to good respiratory health. Nasal irrigation has been used for centuries by many cultures around the world to naturally treat and prevent symptoms associated with sinusitis, post nasal drip, allergies, and sinus infections. It is recommended by leading physicians and hospitals around the world as an effective natural treatment for allergy and sinus problems.

How is Pulsating Nasal Irrigation different from a neti pot, bulb syringe, or squeeze bottle?

The SinuPulse Elite® Advanced Sinus Irrigation System uses a gentle pulsing rinse to cleanse and help restore the natural rate of pulsation of the nasal cilia which are the key to protecting your sinuses against foreign bodies. No other form of nasal irrigation does this. It has been reported that pulsating irrigation is up to 100X more effective at removing bacteria. The SinuPulse Elite® not only helps you feel clear and makes breathing easier it addresses the underlying problem of poor functioning cilia being the key to long term sinus health. Healthy cilia are the most important element in filtering allergens and preventing sinus infections.

There are many methods of nasal irrigation none as effective or as simple to use as the SinuPulse Elite. Neti pots are messy and uncomfortable to use as they rely on gravity and force the user to be placed in an awkward position. Squeeze bottles, bulb syringes, and neti pots do not pulsate and the rate of flow is neither controlled nor sufficient to effectively cleanse the sinuses. In addition, neti pots and squeeze bottles are simply methods for nasal washing. They are not an effective irrigation method to help restore the nasal cilia or provide adequate cleansing. The pressure and rate of pulsation is gentle enough that even 5-year-olds adjust well to irrigation.

Is the SinuPulse Elite® unpleasant or painful?

No not at all. Some may envision an unpleasant experience of accidentally getting water up your nose. This could not be further from the truth. Actually it is quite pleasant. The solution is warm and soothing and gently bathes your nose with a gentle pulsating rinse designed to moisturize and cleanse the nasal passages and sinuses. The warm and soothing rinse will leave you breathing better, feeling clear, and healthy.

Is the SinuPulse Elite&re; difficult, inconvenient, or messy to use?

The SinuPulse Elite® takes only minutes to use. One teaspoon of SinuAir powdered saline or regular non iodized table salt in the water tank prepares your solution quickly. Simple and easy to use, the SinuPulse Elite® delivers a gentle moisturizing mist spray or a cleansing irrigation of pulsating saline. It is far less messy than a neti pot or squeeze bottle. The SinuPulse Elite® does all the work and leaves your nose feeling refreshed and clean.
