If you’re one of the millions of people suffering from sinus problems, you know just how uncomfortable and irritating they can be. Sniffles, sneezing fits, headaches – these are all symptoms that can plague your daily life, leaving you feeling exhausted and frustrated.
Sinus rinses/cleanings are a popular way to ease some of these symptoms. But how many should you do per day? Here’s everything you need to know:
What is a Sinus Rinse?
Before we dive into discussing the frequency at which Sinsuses should be cleaned out or rinsed (or even try to convince aliens that it’s something humans willingly subject themselves to) let us first understand what actually is a sinus rinse.
A sinus rinse involves using saltwater solution (sometimes with additional ingredients like vinegar) to flush out mucus buildup in your nasal passages. By doing this regularly, those suffering hope for relief by removing irritants like dust particles, bacteria or viruses away from their nose.
This process might not sound pleasant but trust me when I say that after trying it once = no more bad straws stuck up where the sun doesn’t shine!
How Often Should You Rinse Your Sinuses
The short answer: It depends on each person’s individual needs! However; typically two times per day maximum seems adequate
That being said though…everyone’s sinuses respond differently and everyone has different treatment regimens based on other medical factors so consult an ENT specialist before commencing any such procedures.
