Sneezing! We all do it. From weeds to trees, from kittens to wool mittens, there are many things that set our noses off. Nasal rinse? Sometimes! A small number of people who are new to nasal rinses might notice a few initial sneezes as a side effect.
The good news is that this side effect doesn’t last. But, why does it happen? And what are the other drawbacks?
Why we sneeze
Sneezing is a natural reaction and something everybody experiences, some more than others. You don’t have to be sick, allergic, or one of Snow White’s dwarves to sneeze every now and then. A sneeze occurs when something gets inside the nose and triggers our nerve endings to react. These nerves send a signal to the brain, cueing it to remove whatever has invaded. This is why a sneeze is forceful: it’s designed to expel.
Nasal rinsing, because it’s introducing saline solution into the nasal passages, can elicit a sneeze by priming the nerve endings the same way dust, allergens, or pepper might.
It doesn’t affect everybody, but for those who do find themselves sneezing, rest assured: it will subside the more the nasal rinse is used. The nose likes to know what’s going on: anything new is sure to make it act a little funny. But this is only temporary.
Remember: the more you irrigate your sinuses, the greater the benefits become.
By rinsing regularly, you can enjoy the benefits of deep breaths and clear sinuses. If you struggle with seasonal or perennial allergies, allergic reactions to pet dander, dust, dirt, or mold, or have dry or congested sinuses, you can find relief through regular use of the ResQRinse® nasal irrigation system. It’s designed to be used daily if needed, so you can experience ongoing relief. Instead of simply masking your symptoms, you’ll actually flush the irritants out of your nasal passages. Not only will nasal rinsing help to reduce or eliminate the issues, but it will do so naturally.
While sneezing after using your ResQRinse nasal irrigation system may occur for a short time, the benefits far outweigh the brief discomfort. If you’ve used a traditional neti pot or another nasal rinsing device, you probably have experienced some relief. However, you may also have felt as if you were choking, felt a burning sensation, or even ended up gagging or feeling nauseated after rinsing your nasal passages. ResQRinse was developed to eliminate all of those issues and instead leave you with an easy-to-use nasal irrigation device that brings relief and that wonderful “ahhh!” feeling we all experience when we can breathe deeply again.
ResQRinse is a new nasal rinsing system that uses our NasalLock™ method of choanal occlusion, a process that eliminates the negative side effects of other devices. ResQRinse helps your nasal health by delivering the saline rinse directly through the nasal cavity. To learn more about the wonders it can do for your nose, please check out these informative videos.
