Sinus rinses are wonderful for so many reasons. For one, they help us keep from catching colds and the flu because by rinsing our sinuses regularly, the germs find it harder to take hold and incubate. I started rinsing twice a day last fall and did not have any illness all winter long. This is the first time that I've ever been so healthy during winter.
For those who want the benefit of an additional antifungal, some doctors recommend adding a small amount of xylitol to the home made rinse formula along with Sea Salt and the sodium bicarbonate.
