As Arizona’s leading clinic for all things related to Ear, Nose and Throat, the providers at Sinus and Allergy Wellness Center recommend that their patients perform a sinus nasal rinse 1-2 times per day.  

A sinus rinse is an easy process that you can do at home, in your bathroom or in the shower. It cleans out your nasal passageways and restores them to optimal performance.  By restoring your nasal passages, you can prevent sinus infections. 

During times like these with the coronavirus epidemic, it’s more important than ever to reduce your risk for sinus and upper respiratory infections.  For this reason, Dr. Gergits even does a sinus rinse every morning and night!

As the leading provider in Arizona for sinus and nasal problems, Franklyn Gergits, DO, MBA, FAOCO, proudly offers state-of-the-art solutions, including balloon sinuplasty for chronic sinusitis. He was also the first doctor in Pennsylvania to perform the procedure.  He understands the importance of optimal nasal health and provides personalized treatment plans for all of his patients which includes a sinus rinse that you can do at home.

A sinus rinse washes away mucous, dirt, pollen, and other allergens from your nose to reduce allergy and asthma symptoms.  Nasal rinses also improve breathing and increases the flow of mucous, allowing sinus passages to clear.
