It was 1986, traveling with a bad sinus infection and feeling miserable in a small Chicago hotel room. Massaging my nasal passages and sinuses to free up congestion and trying and rinse my nose for any relief. The merry-go-round of antibiotics, antihistamines, decongestants, and steroids offered little relief. Risky surgery was the only remaining option and that has a very low record of success.
Desperate to avoid surgery, dozens of published medical reports had already documented the superior cleansing benefits of pulsating irrigation 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 available, that were even harder to use, messy, and provided only limited relief.
There Must 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 sinus relief and long term protection.
Think Solution... Not Problem
Pulsatile nasal irrigation was a hard sell when we first introduced it. Bewildered patients often asked "you want me to do what?" However, with an early appearance on Good Morning America and 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. Many years later, after gaining popularity, the category has grown to include copycats and knock offs from China.
Today nasal wash companies have one objective, sell saline. Their product design and marketing efforts promote expensive proprietary saline refills that are costly and can lead 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 help address the cause of the allergy and sinus symptoms, restore the natural immune response, and "Break the Cycle".
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. 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.
