Any Sinus Cleanser solution that you can get into your sinus region may help to cleanse the sinuses and bring about freer breathing. However, if you use the product according to this “best of all techniques”, you may find even better results. Do the best that you can.
Close this flap
For best results, you need to be able to close off the flap at the back of the throat (soft palate) that allows you to form a reservoir of Sinus Cleanser solution in the sinus region. If you have ever swam under water, then you had to automatically close this soft palate flap in order to prevent having the water go into your lungs.
If you smoke cigarettes, then many smokers automatically close this soft palate flap in order to suck the smoke from the cigarette into the lungs. If you cut onions in the kitchen, then you may have unconsciously closed this flap at the back of your throat which then keeps too much onion fumes from making your eyes tear up. Try breathing through your mouth while consciously closing this soft palate flap at the back of the throat. This very simple step can make all the difference in your success with the Sinus Cleanser product.
How much solution you squeeze into the sinuses is very dependent on the opening in your sinus passages. If you have lots of mucus, debris, dirt, or swollen tissue; then you will only be able to get a teaspoon or so into your sinuses. If your sinuses are reasonably clear of mucus, debris and less swollen; then you should be able to get a tablespoon or more into the sinuses. Do the best you can. Any effort is better than no effort at all.
