I'll bet that you’ve had sinus problems for a while now.
I'm one of you, and we're not alone. About 30% of the US population has seen a doctor for chronic sinusitis in some form, and probably double that if you include those folks who suffer but haven't seen a doctor for it. The constant drip of mucus and the fatigue from related inflammation and irritation can be exhausting; at times it is hard to remember what it was like when you didn’t have sinus problems. Trust me, I’ve been there. My mother had horrible sinus problems, and so did I. They were made even worse by the muggy, pollen-laden, sweltering Midwest summers and the freezing-cold winters that dried out the air in the house so much that the skin around our nostrils cracked. But I have good news for you: I’ve found something that gives you the relief that you’ve been looking for at last. I'm going to tell you about a brand-new product that long-time neti-pot and saline users think is fantastic. Here is what one of them said recently:
I have been real sick for many weeks and had to lay in bed most of the time. That is when my nose would stop up the worst. Most nights I would have to wake up several times and try to get relief so I could breathe. Since I started useing it I have to use it less and less to take care of my problem. I also have not had any problem with being dried out inside my nose like some other products did. I also do not have the draining that made my throat sore. For me,It works better for my problems than other products and I am not aware of any side effects. Don't quit making it because I don't plan to quit buying it (as I need it) Thanks"
—Recent Snoot! customer when asked of her experience.
And it gets better...75% of the people who responded to our recent survey rated this new product as "Great." In case you're wondering, this is not a drug and it does not treat diseases. It is a high-tech and simple-to-use sinus rinse that actually works because it attacks the thing that makes you miserable: mucus.
It has no side effects, it is non-systemic, natural, and easy on the pocketbook. One ENT (nose doctor) that I know said “…it’s so obvious that it should work, I don’t know why no one thought of it before”. The answer is that people have thought of it before, but until now, no one actually had the right ingredients. Due to some good fortune on my part, and a few people who are much smarter than me, we’ve finally figured out how to make it work.
14-days Could Change Your Life Forever
My name is Jack Skeels, and I was and called myself a “Mucaholic”. My days, nights, vacations and business trips were filled with mucus; blowing my nose, snorting and snoring, sore throats, plugged ears…you name it. I was always the first to get the cold from someone who was sick in the office (there was never a cold or flu that I didn’t get, it seemed) and when I wasn’t sick, I was still miserable. I was that guy who made the snorting noises when he sat in the office. Sound familiar? Here's what happened.
I had passed my 50th birthday by a couple of years, and I was finishing up a project that I had done, helping a company negotiate a deal to license a deodorizer. I'm a business consultant and I help companies launch products and projects. You've seen my work, or I should say the work that my teams and clients have done, but writing this webpage was never part of my plan. When I work for my clients I immerse myself in their technologies and their needs, and then I tell them what to do. I had done the same for myself and my sinuses — how could I not have? I had spent my whole life trying to deal with my sinus problems. I gained a huge amount of knowledge through my research, studies and personal experience. And I also learned a lot about what does and (mostly) doesn't help. I'll get to that in a sec.
"After years of going to ENT docs and avoiding neti pots like the plague, Snoot gives me great relief at last!" —Liz, author and entertainment personality with lifelong chronic sinusitis.
A personal friend wanted to license a technology from a company that made amazing oral care products for dentists. This company had a core technology that used a salt, sodium chlorite, that is pretty widely used in industry, but they had figured out the trick on how to make it consumer friendly. I had to learn the technology well so that I could advise my client, and the founder of that company was a great teacher. He's now my business partner, and helping you try this product is my personal mission.
Here's why: I breathe free and clear now, as do hundreds of others who have tried it. Keep reading and I'll explain everything to you.
There was a day a couple of years ago when I was feeling pretty mucus-y, maybe coming down with one of those "I know I am going to be miserable with mucus for weeks" sort of things. I did something crazy and sprayed one of his products up my nose. Two things happened: it hurt a lot (his products weren't designed for tender nasal tissue) and more important, I realized that this was very different from anything I had ever tried. I realized that this might approach the problem in a way that nobody else had....
Research has shown that the frequent use of medications can make your immune system weak and vulnerable to other diseases, and also that the overuse of sinus medications can have the effect of producing even worse sinus symptoms!
Before this moment, I had come to believe that doctors really don’t know how to cure persistent sinus problems. I am pretty sure that about 50% or more of you are nodding your head now. I've even seen the studies on that! Other studies have shown that the re-infection rate from sinus surgeries is about 80% -- that means that a $10,000 to $20,000 medical procedure only has a one in five chance of actually helping you! I didn't have surgery, but of all the people I know who have, only one had a positive outcome.
And whether or not you try surgery, you’ve already tried dozens of drugs…some of which can help a bit, but mostly, they are drugs: they enter your bloodstream, they have side-effects, and usually you’re still not feeling all that well. I’ve tried decongestants, antihistamines, antibiotics, steroids, salves, steamers, dietary changes, herbal rinses… everything.
It was a long journey, and here’s what I discovered...
The Pharma-Medical Industry Has a Model and It Doesn't Work for Us
Hey, they know the technical aspects of the problem and they know what pills 'reduce' the problem for a while, but only those of us who suffer from constantly clogged sinuses and that burning mucus in our throat know how we feel and what consequences it has. It's the mucus.
Some doctors want to find deep causes and big cures. Since doctors don’t feel what you’re feeling they only write you a new prescription every time you visit and that‘s it. They’re just as happy for you to pay them another visit for refills, and they don't suffer the ongoing pain that you do. Pharma companies want to save you with a miracle drug. Medical device companies want to create the ultimate procedure. But that’s not what you and your body need.
The biggest irony in this is that most of what is bothering us is mucus. Get rid of the mucus and I'll be fine! And they are trying to treat something else, to find the big cure,the miracle drug. Why is treating mucus in the same category as curing AIDS or cancer? I'm not going to die from it, I just want the mucus gone! Adding more drugs to our bodies doesn't do that, it just makes us a drug addicts.
The constant use of medications affects our health even more than they admit
We all know that if our body is constantly receiving medications and chemical components, diseases become stronger and our defenses weaker. So a constant drug regimen is not really a solution. Medication and pills only “hide” the problem for a while and often “mask” the symptoms, so we’re only lying to our body. Plus, I have a very shocking but true fact for you:
Approximately 100,000 people die every year from side effects associated with Adverse Drug Reactions (ADR) from legitimate drugs, these include common medications for sinusitis and other respiratory ailments, and this is only in the U.S. Here's another surprising truth: It is a proven fact that the frequent use of medications makes your immune system weak and vulnerable to other diseases, and also that the overuse of sinus medications can have the effect of producing even worse sinus symptoms!
You know this…you’ve lived it. I was there, debating whether to take a decongestant at 3:00 a.m. and probably not sleep much, or to take an "all-in-one" syrup that would make it impossible for me to think the next day.
You and I know that drugs aren't a solution to sinus problems, and that they cause at least as many problems as they're meant to solve. You can't go through life taking dangerous medicine to manage your sinuses - you simply can't affort the time, money and risk. You need something that is simpler, something that gives you freedom.
Your body is better at making you well than you think. It just needs some help.
I still remember the day that I read a book on not using antibiotics for colds – it changed my life. It said that diet and stress is the epidemic of the 21st century. This means that your body can manage its own needs pretty well, but sometimes it goes through difficult situations and sometimes it needs a little help.
Your Nose and Sinuses Are Under Attack
We live in an increasingly global world where flu bugs, molds, allergens and all kinds of bad things can end up in our nasal passages and sinuses. There’s not much we can do to change this situation, these enemies we face, but there’s a lot we can do to help our sinuses do a better job against them. Did you ever wonder how we got to this place? Wouldn’t you think that our bodies, after millions of years of development, would have developed some defense to these sorts of problem? And how many animals do you know that have clogged sinuses and runny noses all of the time? It seems that we may be unique in this way. And that’s when I realized that….
Sinus Problems Are Not As Difficult to Treat As We Think
Most people have the wrong concept that sinus misery can and should only be treated with advanced medications and expensive treatments. Well that’s not true, again, that’s what doctors and the pharmaceutical companies want us to think because that means more profit to them, but in fact you can take charge of your sinuses, get them under control and help them get back to normal function.
Don’t get me wrong… it wasn’t that nothing worked, it was just that nothing worked well. I actually did get some relief from changing my diet: no dairy, no sugar, no white flour, no orange juice, and none of about 20 other things. But I was not actually all that happy. I wanted to have my cake and eat it too!
I started using your product just 48 hours ago and it's already made a world of difference in my sinuses. I've been suffering for a month with sinus infection and in just 2 days I'm seeing relief! Great Product!! – C.K.
You May Never Need a Neti Pot Again!
You may have already tried this, or you may even be using it now – the Neti Pot. It may be that people you know are telling you that you should use one. It is a little teapot with which you rinse your sinuses with acidified salt water. I will be the first person to say that it can help. Funny as it sounds, in fact, using one can help a lot. The bad news is that you need to pour 8-16 ounces of acidified salt water through your sinuses every day, often multiple times a day.
Neti Pots can work, but they are not pleasant (nor convenient) to use!
Back when I used a neti pot, I would often gag and/or get the water (and mucus) on my clothing. Even at that, it was way better than most drugs, and I did use it for a while. But I like to travel, and I am a businessman and have meetings with clients. I like to go out to dinner, out for the night, away for the weekend to wine country, or just spending the day going from one place to another…and that’s why the neti pot really didn’t solve my problem. My nose was better, but I was chained to my bathroom sink!
There's some other recent news as well, which is that you need to use sanitized water in your neti-pot. Sadly, people did die from a scary infection known as amoebic meningitis where amoebas pass through your thin sinus tissue and enter your brain...and you die. It is almost untreatable. Please make sure everyone knows about this: Neti Pots are not harmful, but using unclean,unpurified water in one can kill you.
But I was fascinated by how and why something like the neti pot did so much for my nose when expensive doctors and drugs did not. Here’s a sample of what I found in the hundreds of articles and research papers that I read:
When mucus can't get out of the sinuses, bacteria start to grow, and that causes a sinus infection." —Toribio Flores, MD, Cleveland Clinic
Daily nasal irrigation resulted in improvement in the symptoms of chronic sinusitis in over 70% of subjects. Medication usage was decreased in approximately one third of participants."
—Heatley DG, McConnell KE, Kille TL, Leverson GE. Otolaryngology Head Neck Surgery
And all of this added up to one thing that fateful day a couple of years ago…it dawned on me: could this little sanitizing-oxidizing chemical do what a Neti Pot was trying to do?. The Neti was over 3,000 years old…wasn’t it time for an upgrade? And maybe this great little chemical that is used to sanitize drinking water and protect meats from bacterial and mold infections could actually change the way that a Neti Pot worked.
So we made Neti version 2.0!
It's not the neti pot that needed fixing, of course...it is the solution that you use in the neti pot that does the work. If we could make a better solution, one that was strong yet gentle enough, then maybe we could get better results. Wow, we sure did. I just wanted a different solution for the neti pot. What we got was something that means that you can throw away the neti-pot...the solution is that good!
To understand just how revolutionary this is, you need to understand how a Neti Pot really works. The traditional recipe for a neti sinus rinse has two main ingredients, acid and salt, and a lot of water. When you rinse with a neti, the salt stimulates your cilia (which help clear mucus), and the acid helps to lift and break up the mucus. “Modern” versions of the neti rinse (which can sell for $20 or more) often also include sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) because carbonates can help your nasal cilia move faster for a little while. The salt also remains on your sinuses, and as you know, salt is a preservative…it inhibits bacterial activity. Salt doesn’t do much to viruses, mold, mildew, fungus, etc., but it does inhibit bacteria.
This is why there are so many over-the-counter saline nasal sprays. A lot of them are hypertonic, which means that they have more salt than your body does. More salt means more antibacterial action, but this can be irritating and in some cases damage your cilia with repeated use. Saline sprays will help you clear mucus, but you could possibly develop a dependency upon them if your cilia become weakened. And they sting a bit, sometimes a lot.
Both the neti and the saline rinse are large and bulky…even if I wanted to use them all of the time I couldn’t!
Try the drug-free, go-anywhere, use-any-time, highly-effective nose and sinus cleanser.
We (okay, it was Howard at the pharma company, but I did watch and I was test subject #1) put together a formulation that has three types of ingredients that you’ll find in a traditional rinse, but he went high-tech: he chose the best blend of acidifiers, carbonates and salts that he could find. As a result we needed less water. Not just a little less, but a LOT less. The typical neti pot rinse is about 8 ounces. With our new solution, you could get a good rinse with about one milliliter of spray...that's about a 30th of an ounce, a fifth of a teaspoon.
It was at that first moment that we realized that we had taken a home remedy that used kitchen ingredients and went space-age with it. Okay, maybe not space-age, because our ingredients have been around for hundreds of years, but we just did it a bit smarter. If you were using a neti pot 3,500 years ago and tried Snoot! (we called it "Sinox" back then), maybe it would seem space-age.
Snoot! Cleanser's formula uses chlorite salt – sodium chlorite (notice the ”t”) – instead of sodium chloride (also known as table salt) – because of its laboratory-proven ability to attack and kill (not just inhibit like salt does) a wide range of microorganisms including bacteria, viruses, spores, yeast, fungus, and bio-slime colonies. The acidified sodium chlorite found in Snoot! has been around for hundreds of years. It is used in the high-tech mouthwashes preferred by many dentists (Dioxi-Rinse, Smart Mouth, Oxyfresh, to name a few) and also in many modern US and European municipal drinking water systems, because of its safety and effectiveness.
We use carbonates – sodium carbonate – instead of baking soda, which can be irritating to your sinuses. By using sodium carbonate we get more carbonate into the rinse with less irritation.
I cannot believe how quickly [Snoot!] worked to relieve my congestion and sinus pressure. Without getting too graphic in describing the draining process, I saw the results immediately. In addition to the efficacy, I like the convenience of the spray bottle. It's a lot easier to bring the small spray bottle to work rather than a pot or some other device. Great stuff!" David Callahan, former neti pot user. Read More Like This on Facebook!
We use acids to bring the pH of the final solution to the slightly-acidic 6.3-6.8 level. We use a pinch of food-grade surfactants – they make water “wetter” – they help to get the water onto your nasal surfaces and into your sinus passages. As Howard, our co-founder and inventor, always tells us, wetter water means that you need less water!
What if all you had to do was rinse with a couple of squirts and just blow your nose?
That’s the most amazing part: you can get an incredible level of sinus relief without using medications, or pills or spending a fortune on expensive treatments and specialists...just a couple of squirts up each nostril, and blow the stuff out.
You can use Snoot! Cleanser pretty much anywhere you want! In the comfort of your own home, at the office, on a vacation, a business trip, in the airport, in a crowded subway train, around people who are sick…literally anywhere! Finally a low-cost, drug-free, simple-to-use, non-drowsy sinus treatment you can apply anywhere, any time.
But most important: what real Snoot users say....
The chart on the right shows the results of a survey that we ran in the spring of 2012. People who used Snoot! preferred it more than 10-to-1 over neti pots and saline. We get notes and calls all the time telling us how Snoot! Nasal Cleanser has given people sinus relief and freed them from a cycle of seemingly endless misery. They tell us that they'll never use their neti pot again.

So if you're going to try Snoot! Cleanser, here's one more thing. Research suggest that up to 30% of the population has some form of sinusitis that they have seen a doctor for, and even more have what is called "sub-clinical" sinusitis, where they are not really happy with their sinuses, but not so unhappy that they have gone to a doctor.
That means that at least half the people you know have some form of sinus challenge, whether it is from flu or colds, fungal sinusitis, rhinitis, or any of a dozen or more sinus and nasal maladies that don't really have cures. This is a great deal if you want to share Snoot! with someone else who is suffering. We also offer flat-rate USPS Priority Mail shipping for only $3.95 and if you order by noon pacific time on a business day, your order ships the same day.
