Today we have so many diseases that it is difficult to even keep track of them. We only come to know of it once we are ailing with it.  However, there are some common ailments which affect all of us at one point of time or the other. Cough and cold, for instance, is something we all go through every season change. Though neither fatal nor long lasting it is quite an irritant. Now when it happens your three days are gone for nothing. You can’t think; you can’t work; all you think about is your stuffy nose and sore throat and of course the headache that goes with it.

Most people pop a pill or two to get relief which rarely helps.  A sizable amount is spent every year by all of us on such ailments and I have not even mentioned the chronic and severe health conditions. Thanks to pollution, faulty lifestyle and wrong eating habits we have become more and more susceptible to diseases. Ever wondered if there is a way out?

Can we live disease free and without relying on those colourful medicines that we are forced to take every time we fall ill? Indeed there is if you care to find out. Yoga and Ayurveda are the two ancient systems of medicines that emphasize holistic living and living a healthy life by aligning yourself with nature. If you adopt them you not only live a healthy life but also save a lot of your hard earned money.

Neti Pot

Panchkarma in Ayurveda and Shatkarma in Yoga are important detoxifying and cleansing routines that can make your body healthy by boosting your immunity and getting rid of the toxins from the body. These routines are simple yet effective and cost just a dime. All you pay for is a one-time cost of neti pot available online at wholesale rates and Jal neti salt which is to be used every time you do neti routine.

Neti or the cleansing of the nostrils is an important routine in Panchkarma and Shatkarma. The routine is simple; all you do is take a neti pot and pour lukewarm water with a pinch of Jal neti salt in it and insert its spout in one nostril while breathing with the mouth. The water comes out of the opposite nostril de-clogging the nasal passage. This is simple yet a very effective way of getting rid of the bacteria that accumulate in the nasal passage.

The Jala neti salt is very essential as it helps in eliminating the bacteria.

A word of caution here, though Jal neti is simple yet it would need some expert supervision in the beginning. So better learn it from a yoga teacher or get it done at an Ayurvedic therapy center where you will learn it.  Interestingly Jal neti cures many diseases including migraines and sinusitis. It also makes vision better and can be very beneficial if you suffer from frequent bouts of cough and cold. The Jal neti pot at wholesale rates can be ordered online. You could buy a metal, ceramic or a plastic pot as per your preference.
