Ms. Mehta said NeilMed products will help servicemen and women serving in dry, dusty areas to soothe and hydrate their dry and irritated nasal passages in a drug free manner. “These troops are putting their lives on the line for our safety and for our nation” Ms. Mehta said. “We at NeilMed are happy to have a way to help them and to express our appreciation for their service.”

NeilMed has teamed up with the University of North Carolina’s Department of Otolaryngology (ear, nose, and throat) and the American Rhinologic NeilMed Sinus Rinse KitSociety (ARS) to ship 100,000 units of its Sinus RinseTM Kit and 100,000 units of NasoGelR Spray for Dry Noses to the troops. NeilMed’s donation was initiated by University of North Carolina nurse Katie Sams.  Her husband, Alex, was suffering from nasal congestion and irritation while serving as a U.S. Army Specialist in the Helmand province of Afghanistan. Sams asked Dr. Brent Senior, UNC Professor of Otolaryngology and Chief of the Division of Rhinology, Allergy, and Endoscopic Skull Base Surgery, about sending NeilMed Sinus RinseTM samples to her husband and his fellow soldiers. Dr. Brent contacted NeilMed Founder & CEO Ketan Mehta, M.D., at NeilMed, and together they arranged for NeilMed’s donation. NeilMed is shipping its products directly to the troops from its manufacturing plant in Santa Rosa, California.

“Using Sinus RinseTM is one of the proven ways to naturally and effectively treat rhinitis and sinusitis in patients” Dr. Senior said. “For the guys serving in the military who are exposed to particulate matter in sand and whose nasal passages are often dry. Sinus RinseTM and NasoGelR are perfect options for keeping their noses clean, moist and clear and keeping themselves healthy so they are able to work to the best of their ability without any of the side effects of drugs.”

    1. Find, buy, and use something caleld a nettie pot. It looks really weird, but it helps to naturally clean out your sinuses. It gently flushes out allergens, dust, and other irritants out of your sinuses. Also go to a reputable health food store and ask about what you can take naturally for allergies/sinuses, and to boost your immune system.

  24. Wonderful website. Lots of helpful information here.

    I’m sending it to some friends ans also sharing in delicious. And naturally, thanks to your sweat!

    1. Robbie: glad to hear you aren’t suffering any more. You are crocert, allergies DO change over time! Since they represent an overreaction of our immune system to external particles, it is possible to change that response.I’ve heard of someone who swears her hayfever and tree allergies went away when she started Yoga regularly. Many of my patients have benefited from improving their gut health (there’s a lot of immune response in our guts), or even just reducing stress. Kind of amazing what less stress can cure
