DioxiRinse™ alleviates sore throats and kicks the butt of bugs this flu season
We’re still in the middle of the worst flu season on record, with no end in sight. Flu, sickness, throat infection bugs are literally everywhere right now. The mouth and nose provide easy access into our bodies and a nice comfy environment for bacteria and virus to take up residency. When those little buggers get the upper hand we end up with a sore throat, runny nose and worse; viral infection being most common cause (80% of cases).
Here is a cool video from National Public Radio (NPR) showing how a flu virus invades your body ... urgh!
Gargling into the back of the throat with DioxiRinse Mouthwash provides an immediate soothing effect. Chlorine dioxide is a well known deactivator of virus, and is also thought to neutralize inflammatory compounds such as oxygen free-radicals which can cause pain.
For best results, catch a sore throat early on. You may be surprised!
- Make the DioxiRinse solution by pumping equal quantities of part A and part B into a mixing cup.
- Let the solution sit for about 60 seconds.
- Gargle for about 15 seconds, tilting the head back so that the solution washes the back of the nose, as well as the entire throat. You may feel a slight burn if there is an infection. If you feel a tingle you are coating the right spot.
- Repeat Step 3 if gargling is less than 15 seconds.
- Gargling is recommended twice a day.
Daily use of DioxiRinse offers advantages over other antimicrobial rinses because chlorine dioxide is active against a wide spectrum of microorganisms. DioxiRinse tastes good, does not stain the teeth, and can be used on a routine basis. It has a pleasant aftertaste and need not be rinsed with tap water after use.
Last helpful hint – using a humidifier will ease nasal congestion and help soothe your sore throat.
