Jala neti

Post by Katarina »

Hi,
I have a short question:
can a person practice neti (nose cleaning) with salted water regulary early in the morning? Isn´t it inappropriate for kapha dosha?
Thank you
Namaste

salt water Neti is called a jala neti.
jal neti helps to cleans the excess of mucous and other toxins from the passages.
It works on the similar principal like the NASYAM ,

since it helps to remove excess of mucous, kapha who naturally tend to produce a lot of mucous , it helps them to purify and cleanse the channels.

Namaste !!!

Jala neti has been found to be effective against...common cold, migraines and also cleaning the sinus passages.
in cold countries we recommend it to do it in evening on empty stomach - when you dont have to go out in cold, as cold can block the sinuses.


well Now a days , we are recommending Neti - after coming home from visiting markets or even friends, as it cleanse the passage pathways.

Thanks Jenni,
well first of all this isnt True,

as i have explained earlier,
in cold weather, after Neti practice its better not to move out, as the Nadis or Channels or Meredians open up, thus it will result in cold or headaches or blocked nose.
we recommend not go out in open for the next 2 to 3 hours atleast, after this Practise
In some Yoga schools like Himalaya yoga valley ( www.yogagoaindia.com) we ask people to do it in the evenings after coming home from work, on empty stomach . This wont make you to catch cold
also prefer to do it on a holiday when you dont have to go out immediately after.
