Nonallergic Rhinitis

What is nonallergic rhinitis?

Rhinitis, more commonly known as a stuffy nose, is an irritation and inflammation of the nasal passages. Nonallergic rhinitis involves chronic sneezing or a congested, drippy nose with no apparent cause. The passages in the nose become swollen and uncomfortable, leading to the production of mucus that causes a blocked and runny nose.

Nonallergic rhinitis symptoms are similar to those of hay fever (allergic rhinitis), but with none of the usual evidence of an allergic reaction. Nonallergic rhinitis can affect children and adults.


Nonallergic rhinitis treatment

Treatments for nonallergic rhinitis include:

  • Saline nasal sprays. You can use an over-the-counter nasal saline spray or homemade saltwater solution. These help to flush the nose of irritants and help thin the mucus and soothe the membranes in your nose.
  • Antihistamine nasal sprays
  • Corticosteroid nasal sprays
  • Anti-drip anticholinergic nasal sprays
  • Decongestants
  • Nasal or sinus irrigation


How nasal irrigation helps treat rhinitis

Nasal irrigation can flush out the mucus and soothe the nasal passages, reducing the swelling and, in the case of allergic rhinitis, flushing out the irritant that has caused it in the first place. Nasal irrigation is a drug-free and highly effective cure for rhinitis.

Regular sinus irrigation will keep your nasal passages and sinuses clear, moisturised and healthy. Not only does it flush out bacteria and viruses, but it also helps ensure that your nasal hairs, or cilia, are free to move and do their job in preventing bacteria from entering your system. Most people notice a significant improvement after the first use, and regular use will also decrease your chance of it, or any other airborne illness, returning.


Modern nasal irrigation

Modern nasal irrigation has become as easy as brushing your teeth. With the SinuPulse Elite, nasal irrigation is easier, more effective and more accessible for the millions of people who suffer from rhinitis every year.


Why choose the SinuPulse Elite?

SinuPulse Elite Nasal Irrigator & Salt Powder | Intus HealthcareNasal irrigation, or Jala Neti, has been around for thousands of years and is a widely practised treatment for many conditions. The SinuPulse Elite takes Neti to the next level – making it far easier, quicker and more effective than traditional Neti pots or nasal sprays. You no longer have to have your head at awkward angles to rely on gravity – the SinuPulse lets you keep your head upright and does the hard work for you.

You simply use the jet irrigator to flush out the worst and then use the spray tip to reach the areas that would ordinarily be out of reach for regular Neti pots and sprays. The SinuPulse offers the most comprehensive sinus irrigation possible, giving more noticeable and longer-lasting relief.


How the SinuPulse Nasal Irrigator works

The key to the SinuPulse Elite is its pulsating mechanism, which helps stimulate the body’s in-built ciliary flow. The cilia are designed to prevent blockages and free your airways, but the nose can be so congested that it cannot move. The SinuPulse clears out the blockages and stimulates the cilia back into action, ensuring comprehensive irrigation and long-lasting relief, as the nasal passages can once again defend themselves.

The SinuPulse Elite comes with a unique spray tip. It ensures that your nasal passages are as clear, sanitised and healthy as can be. Once your regular irrigation is complete, you can use the spray tip to gently moisturise your nasal passages and infiltrate areas that are hard to reach, removing any lingering bacteria or mucus that any regular irrigator simply cannot reach.


SinuPulse Elite is available with zero-rated VAT

If you purchase the SinuPulse Elite for personal use and suffer from chronic sinus problems, you can purchase it VAT-free. You do not need a prescription or diagnosis. Simply tick the declaration during the checkout.
