Combat Sinus Infections Using Our One Touch Nasal Flush

Combat Sinus Infections Using Our One Touch Nasal Flush

August 20th, 2014 Baylor College of Medicine

Typically, for allergy sufferers, I [sic] recommend irrigating the sinuses once every day to every other day with 8 ounces of salt water.  There is data that indicates over irrigating the sinuses can deplete natural immune cells that reside in the mucus of the sinuses. I [sic] would not recommend irrigating more than once a day.

The advantages of irrigating includes:

  • Keeping the nose clean
  • Decreasing the bacteria count inside the nose and sinuses
  • Flushing out irritants out of the nose on a regular basis.

By doing this, many of my allergy suffers no longer require the use of allergy medications.  Irrigation has been shown to improve nasal hygiene and decrease the swelling caused by nasal irritants. The saline irrigations can also help prevent recurring sinusitis.

Sinus infections frequently occur when swelling from irritants, allergens, or viruses causes blockage of the opening of the sinuses, thus preventing proper aeration and drainage of the sinuses.

Once a sinus infection occurs, the irrigations can also serve to flush out the pus from inside the sinuses and keep the sinuses open.  Typically, during an active sinus infection, I [sic] would recommend that the saline concentration of the irrigation be increased one and a half fold if the patient can tolerate it.

Salt itself has a property of preventing bacteria from growing (that’s why salted foods spoil slowly).  During an acute sinus infection, rinsing the sinuses 2 to 3 times per day is effective.



  • Salt-containing no iodide or preservatives (these can be irritating)
  • Baking soda
  • 8 ounces (1 cup) of distilled or boiled water


  • Mix 3 heaping teaspoons of salt with 1 rounded teaspoon of baking soda and store in a small Ziplock bag.
  • Add 1 teaspoon of the mixture to 8 ounces (1 cup) of lukewarm distilled or boiled water. Use less to make a less concentrated salt solution if burning or stinging is experienced.


Using a nasal saline rinse bottle, rinse by following these steps:

  • Draw up 8 ounces of the saline solution. Breathe through your mouth. In a few seconds, the solution should come out through your other nostril. Repeat the process on the other side.
  • Blow your nose very gently to flush out any remaining solution and mucus. 
  • If you are using other nasal medications, be sure you do not use it right before irrigating y our sinuses – it will rinse the medication out.  Use other nasal medication at least 30 minutes after irrigating.
