Perhaps you have noticed the "nasal irrigation" kits in your local pharmacy or grocery store. The idea is that by rinsing out ones sinuses with a saline solution pollen and other irritants are removed, promoting health. A good example of what is often referred to as alternative health treatment. You could learn more about such things by researching them in Alt-Health, one of our many article databases. Alt-Health has the full text from well over one hundred different titles, for example International Journal of Yoga Therapy, Harvard Women's Health Watch, Alive, and American Journal of Chinese Medicine. You could also of course balance your research in Alt-Health with the use of conventional medicine databases, for example MedLine or Cinahl.
