Many customers have asked us to tell the story of our small California company with a big idea that helped launched an industry...
Where It All Began
It was 1986, traveling with a bad sinus infection and feeling miserable in a small Chicago hotel room. I would massage my nasal passages and sinuses to free up congestion and manually try and rinse my nose for any relief. Antihistamines, decongestants, and steroids offered little help. Surgery was the next best option.
Desperate to avoid surgery, dozens of published medical reports had already documented the superior cleansing benefits of a pulsating rinse to break down biofilm and remove bacteria especially for infections and wounds, why not the nose? At the time there were only a handful of hard to find neti pots – which were even harder to use – and have been around for a thousand years...
There Had to Be a Better Way!
That original idea 35 years ago was the inspiration to reach out to medical experts and industry leaders to develop the Original Sinus Irrigator™. It wasn't long before we introduced the first FDA registered pulsatile nasal sinus irrigation system.
The Original Objective Was Simple: treat the cause, not just the symptoms, and "Break the Cycle". Bust away biofilm, remove bacteria, and help restore natural ciliary health for long term protection.
But nasal irrigation was a hard sell when we first introduced it. When instructing customers on its use, most simply looked at us bewildered and responded, "you want me to do what with that?" However, with an early appearance on Good Morning America and the support of many physicians, hospitals, universities, and professional sports teams and athletic trainers we began to change the way patients treated their allergy and sinus problems. Today most nasal wash companies have one objective, to sell saline packets. Their marketing efforts and even the design of their products can result in expensive proprietary saline products and can contribute to dependency, "The more you use it, the more you need it". Our goal has always been to not only provide relief of symptoms, but to address the cause of the symptoms, restore the natural immune response, and "Break the Cycle".

I recommend the SinuPulse Elite® from Health Solutions Medical Products. Our team has been using their sinus irrigation products as part of our regular healthcare regimen. We have found the products help our players that suffer from allergies and sinus problems.

Our players and staff have been working with the SinuPulse® products. They have definitely been great tools to use in our training room for our players that suffer with chronic allergy and sinus problems. I highly recommend their use for sinus relief.
Pioneering an Industry
Nearly 40 years later SinuPulse® is the brand recommended most by health care professionals for pulsatile nasal irrigation. Dozens of published medical journals report pulsatile nasal sinus irrigation is one of the most effective methods to treat allergy and sinus symptoms. More importantly it helps strengthen our natural ciliary function and immune response for long term protection. Little did we know, so many years ago, that we would be pioneering an industry now used by millions around the world including many imitations.

I've heard from people who have had an infection for months and within days of beginning irrigation the infection was gone. One of the most therapeutic measures in completely eliminating a sinus infection, the SinuPulse® can help quickly and dramatically.

My clinical experience with over 3,000 patients supports the findings for atrophic rhinitis and allergic rhinitis. Pulsatile irrigation is superior to non-pulsatile. The SinuPulse® does a superior job of dislodging thick mucus and debris.
