Sinox Spray Offers Safe Alternative to Neti Pot Health Risk

December 21, 2011

TOPANGA, Calif., Dec. 21, 2011 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — In the face of at least two recent deaths caused by brain-eating amoeba found in domestic tap water, neti pot users are now looking for safer alternatives. Sinox Spray, a natural, drug-free nasal rinse alternative to neti pots, uses antiseptic salts and sterile water to clear mucus without the risk of infection from tap-water borne microorganisms.

The neti pot, a traditional device whose roots can be traced to Ayurvedic medicine in ancient India, is among the most common approaches to clearing nasal and sinus congestion found in conditions such as chronic sinusitis, the common cold, acute rhinitis and nasal allergies. The neti pot can be effective — it played a role in inspiring the invention of Sinox — but the device is large and cumbersome, requiring substantial volumes of water in a messy process. Also, when used with impure water, contamination can result.

Neti pots can be used with distilled or sterilized water. However, most users simply use tap water, which contains numerous impurities. While generally safe to drink, unsanitized water applied to the blood-rich tissues in the nose can result in infections by amoeba or other microorganisms. In the recent cases resulting in death, a pathogen, Naegleria fowleri, also known as “the brain-eating amoeba”, infected victims through the nose, where it can use nerve fibers to access the brain. Once inside the body, it rapidly spreads through the brain causing severe symptoms leading to death. The amoeba is also found in fresh water sources such as ponds, lakes, and rivers. Mortality from infection is estimated as high as 98%.

“With this latest, unfortunate, news where municipal water appears to have been unsafe, the risk in using a neti pot, which is basically a ‘home remedy’, becomes a bit more apparent,” says Sinox Pharma founder, Jack Skeels. “We designed Sinox Spray to give sinus sufferers all of the goodness of the neti pot – including purified water – without the hassle or risk.”

The ingredients in Sinox Spray include sodium chlorite, a widely-used salt whose FDA-approved uses include food and water sanitation. When formulated in Sinox Spray, it is laboratory-proven to kill viruses, bacteria, spores, slimes, yeasts, and other microbial pathogens. Sinox Spray also includes carbonates and surfactants that work together to help the user clear mucus, pathogens and other foreign particles from their nasal and sinus passages.

Sinox Spray comes in a small 20ml spray bottle and requires only a few quick squirts to be effective. By contrast, neti pots typically require 8-12 ounces of warm water.

Sinox Spray is especially convenient for travelers and busy professionals.Sinox Spray comes with a full 100% money-back guarantee. Find out more, and order now at Sinox Spray (http://sinoxspray.com/).
