The pollen has arrived. Monday there was ¼ inch of yellow cedar pollen coating the windows of my car. The same crud is coating the inside of your sinuses, your lungs and your eyes. Some of us are having systemic histamine reactions as our bodies try to fight off the offenders. Some of us just have itchy eyes and irritated throats. In either case a few simple yogic remedies can help.Neti Pot: Fill your neti pot with body-temperature pre-boiled or distilled water and ½ teaspoon of salt. The water should feel neutral in your sinuses, if it burns adjust the salt and temperature. Lean over the sink, tilt your head to the left side and pour half the water from right nostril to left, then switch sides. You should be able to breath through your mouth while you do this. When the pot is empty lean your head forward and exhale forcefully to dry your sinuses. Nasya Oil: Nasya is organic sesame oil infused with medicinal Brahmi, Calumus Skullcap and Eucalyptus. Massaging a few drops into each nostril in the mornings will keep your head and sinuses clear and your immune system healthy. Pranayama are breathing exercises. The most simple is to pay attention to your exhalation. If you find yourself struggling to breath, focus on exhaling and this will relax the ‘panic response’ that causes you to gasp for breath.
