Before you start reading – recall how the traditions, cultures and practices from the past is gradually picking up the speed. Technology, ignorance, time-pressed, and more importantly find short-cuts all the time have ultimately screwed up the human body.
When nothing works, Yoga – Meditation – Spirituality – Ayurveda and age old practices are frantically being chased. A True teacher plays the role in shaping your character, not your handy Google Teacher which lingers like your extended body part.
It’s been a couple of years that I had been practicing Jai Neti and have perceived significant difference on how my body is responding. Well, it’s recommended to do Jai Neti every day in the morning. On my recent trip to Delhi, I realized how effective Jai Neti was. The pollution in Delhi is so very bad, you need to be in that place to experience what you are breathing. I was okay with my breathing cycles, my eyes were responding effectively with less irritation as compared to others and my stamina was untouched. Looking at the environment, I used to do Jai Neti twice a day to keep myself clean and protected. Kindly note: Jai Neti takes time to restore your body, there is no over-night remedy. Have patience and keep practicing it daily. Modernization and competitive world have completely ignored the power of human body. In legitimate sense, we do not know who to use our body in a correct way.
Jai Neti is an significant part of Hindu Shatkarma. It’s one of the yogic systems of body cleansing techniques. It is intended mainly to clean the air passageways in the head.
Indian Yogis have left behind huge knowledge that can transform your human body and lift it to a completely remarkable level. Am more focused on highlighting about Jai Neti that is getting popular these days. I had been practicing Jai Neti for quite sometime and having learnt it from a glorious sage. It’s more of my responsibility to keep practicing it daily. Once you start experiencing the benefits, it will only motivate you to explore more of your magical human body.
Precautions need to be taken:
- The water needs to be pure
- Preferably use Jai Neti Pot
- Try to do it empty stomach
- Make saline water [by adding salt in the water] The water temperature needs to be around your body temperature or little more
- The quantity of salt should be perfect i.e no less no more – else you will experience difficulty in performing Jai Neti
- Blow out the excess water from your nostrils after you are done by closing your mouth and quick breath out from nostrils. Perform this couple of times till you are satisfied that no water is left inside your nostrils
I will precisely not describe how to perform Jai Neti as I recommend you to learn it from an expert and do it couple of times in front of him/her. Many notable health benefits are marked with the continual practice of Jai Neti
- It clears up your nasal passage and gives your respite from sore throats, sinusitis, mucus and improves your breathing from nose
- It helps in lowering migraine, headaches and relax eye stress [personally it has helped me to manage a migraine and eye stress] Excess heat is flushed out from your brain and thus helps to manage your headaches and mental stress.
- Improved and better breathing cycles will keep you energetic and fresh
- Helpful to keep your ears clean from infection and excess wax deposits
- Those who practice meditation and start doing Jai Neti will experience a phenomenal growth and difference in their meditational sessions
- The helpful cleaning process which not only promotes healthy respiration but also increases the efficiency of eyes and ears
Never perform Jal Neti if you have nose infection, bleeding nose or a wounded nose. Learn from an expert before you start practicing Jai Neti.
Stay healthy, wise and love yourself!
