What is it?
The nasal and sinus mucous membranes are able to absorb homoeopathic preparations very rapidly and completely if the solution doesn’t run directly down the throat. Remedies absorbed in this way work almost as rapidly as an intravenous injection because they are taken directly into the system without having to compete with the stomach acids and other gastric secretions. This nasal therapy, understandably, is most suitable for all upper respiratory disorders such as sinusitis, hay fever, rhinitis, colds and flu as well as being excellent for many other problems through the reflex connection of the sinuses, via the acupuncture meridian pathways, with various other organs of the body such as the stomach, large intestine, liver, gallbladder and uro-genital tract.
How is it applied?
The client lies on his/her back with head tilted enough so that the nostrils are almost parallel to the ceiling. An individually selected preparation of homoeopathic solutions is then slowly dripped into each nostril. This is followed by the head being gently rocked from side to side to distribute the preparation through the sinuses plus a gentle massage of the sinus areas around the nose, cheekbones, eyes and forehead further helps the absorption of these remedies. This procedure is repeated a number of times to maximise absorption before the client is assisted to sit up once again.
