Xlear Nasal Spray:Is a patented saline nasal spray with xylitol. The bacteria Streptococcus Pneumoniae, Haemophilus Influenzae and Moraxella Catarrhalis are the major causes of ear infections in children and sinus and bronchial infections in adults.
Research in Finland has shown that a 5% xylitol solution reduces Strep. Pneumo by 68% and H. Flu bacteria by 50%.
The studies indicated only a small effect on Moraxella Catarrhalis. Since the nose is a major entry point for colds and flu it makes sense to keep it clean and free of bad bacteria.
The immune systems first response to any irritant is to wash it away which is why we get a stuffed or running nose when the airway is irritated. Stomach irritants lead to diarrhea or vomiting.
Bladder irritation or infection causes frequent urination and irritants in the bronchia causes coughing. Traditional treatments however do not aid the immune system in washing out the contaminants.
The use of antihistamines works to dry up the washing away process by removing our immune system's natural sinus washer-our histamines.
Our nose may not be running as much but the irritant has not been removed.
Antibiotics can be taken but the irritants often adapt to the medicine and become antibiotic resistant. Antibiotics also deplete beneficial bacteria in the digestive tract.
These good bacteria, or flora, are needed by the body and enhance the immune system. Antibiotics should only be used as a last resort and used sparingly.
This spray however, is an outstanding nasal wash that flushes out these bacteria that are causing inflammation within the ear-nose-throat system.
This washing greatly aids the immune system and relief comes quickly.
How to use Xlear: The bottle delivers a spray if held upright, a stream if held horizontally (which is not recommended) and delivers drops if held upside down.
Drops are OK for a child who is resisting the spray. Ensure the child remains lying down so the drops drain to the sinus passages where bacteria lodge.
Use Xlear regularly for preventive measures even if congestion is not currently a problem. Bacteria won't live long in a clean nose.
