Nose Bleeds

Nose Bleeds can happen initially to those with high blood pressure, or those with extremely sensitive, raw or irritated nasal lining. In such an event, one should desist from the practice and seek guidance before continuing.

Teachers of the technique should always enquire beforehand if the new practitioner has a history of nose bleeds, and students should also think to volunteer this information. Often those with chronic sinus problems, who have been on cortisone medications for years, have such a history. Those who work in chemically polluted environments may have them too, as can “stress heads” and “worry warts” or those with high blood pressure.

In all cases, proceed as per usual, but taking extra care on the following areas:

  • Always use the purest water and the purest salt.
  • Never have the water too hot nor too salty.
  • Never blow the nose hard when changing sides or drying.
  • Do not hang upside down when drying.
  • Do not to do Neti more than once daily without advice.

In the case of a nosebleed during or after neti, one should cut back to alternate days or stop doing neti until qualified advice has been sought. Milk Neti is a good treatment for chronic nose bleeders, but advice should be sought from a qualified person before doing it.
