Keeping your nose clean
OK. So your daily attempt at perfection already includes brushing and flossing, exercising, meditating, eating fruits and veggies, and overall clean, healthy living. Here's one more health habit you might consider. (Or not.) In lay terms, it's called keeping your nose clean. In fancier language, it's nasal lavage -- also known as nasal irrigation or sinus rinsing.
It's a simple, low-tech way to wash out the viruses, bacteria, mold, allergens, dust, mucus, and general crud that land inside the nose and sinus passages and contribute to colds, chronic nasal congestion, post nasal drip, frequent sinus infections, asthma, and other respiratory ills.
