The salty solution to sniffles Tuesday 22 January 2008 PDF Print A study has found that a simple seawater nasal wash helps children with a snuffle. Regular use of a nasal spray improved cold symptoms and prevented the children from catching other coughs and colds. Sterimar® sea water nasal spray (rrp £5.99) is available in the UK and is recommended by leading specialists as a natural, safe and gentle alternative to standard medication. Dr. Glenis Scadding, ENT Specialist, Royal National Ear, Nose and Throat Hospital recommends Sterimar®: “The nose acts as a filter against irritants and germs but can’t function properly if it is congested. Using this 100% natural sea water spray helps to clear the airways and allows your nose to do its job effectively, helping you to avoid further illness.” Pharmacist Sonal Dhavda recommends Sterimar, the 100% natural sea water nasal spray as an excellent way to treat blocked noses. Suitable for babies and children the unique nozzle fits comfortably into the nose and delivers an ultra gentle spray of sea water solution to gently relieve congestion. The French have led the way in nasal hygiene for over 30 years with “douche pour la nez” literally meaning ‘a shower for the nose’. They recognise the well-being benefits of ‘daily douching’ with Sterimar® day to keep the nose in healthy shape. Suitable for all, from babies to adults, Sterimar® will help your family breathe more easily. Stérimar; do the daily douche and feel the benefits!
