Nasal irrigation

  • our body produces 1-1.5l of mucus a day, it slides down our throat
  • during an infection mucus may be blocked and do not drain out properly
  • it comes thick as it drys and may turn yellow due to an enzyme produced by antibodies
  • nasal irrigation flushes saline water into sinuses to help flush out the thick mucus and relieve symptoms
