Have You Flossed Your Nasal Passages Today?
The nose has been making news recently. First, nose waxing becomes trendy. And now, we’ve learned that nose flossing is a part of some people’s daily hygiene routine. Rubber Neti is an ancient yogic technique in which a piece of string or tubing is inserted into a nostril, pulled through the mouth, and then both ends are pulled in a back and forth flossing motion. Many Indians believe that Rubber Neti keeps the common cold, cough, and asthma at bay and the nasal passages clear and clean. This definitely looks strange and probably tastes odd. Most adults don’t like to eat the contents of their nasal passages. But I’m willing to try anything to combat my asthma. [Reuters]
