Jessica Simpson Pours Salt Water Up Nose - Drinks Own Urine?
Nasal irrigation is an ayurvedic cure where the patient pours salty water from a small teapot up the nose to clean out the sinuses. The small teapots are called neti pots and the warm salt water is said to wash particles out, shrinks nasal membranes, increases the nose hair function, thin secretions and open the tiny sinus openings.
Sinus problems are often very difficult to shift and this process seems to offer a real alternative to anti-biotics or sinus surgery which often do not offer long term cures. Regular washing of the nasal passages with warm salty water could help alleviate systems and reverse nasal membrane damage.
Simpson also tried other ayurvedic cures including oil in her hair and drinking a special digestive drink. The digestive drink favoured by many followers of ayurvedic medicine is the patient's own urine but it is not known if Jessica Simpson drank her own urine or not. This treatment is called ayurveda urine therapy.
Simpson undertook the treatments as part of her reality TV show The Price Of Beauty.
Ayurvedic medicine is an ancient Indian form of medicine that is now finding increasing popularity in the west.
On a trip to Mumbai, she poured salt water up her nose, oil over her hair and drank a special 'digestive' drink - which simply made her burp.
