Website: Navage.com

The Navage Nose Cleaner, found online Navage.com, is described as being the combination of modern technology and the ancient therapy of saline nasal irrigation in order to treat chronic nasal conditions.  

How Does It Work?

According to their website, the US Centers for Disease Control says that about 40 million people in North America suffer from chronic sinus infections, a condition that can truly make people miserable during winter and cold and flu season.

The creator of the Navage Nose Cleaner suffered from recurring sinusitis and discovered that using a neti pot for nasal irrigation genuinely helped him avoid further recurrences or the significant discomfort that can occur with a sinus infection. 

But one day he realized that perhaps the process of nasal irrigation would be more comfortable, convenient, and neater if the saline liquid used in the process was pulled through your sinus cavity instead of pushed through, the way it is with a traditional neti pot.  

 

In order to achieve this, he designed the Navage Nasal Hygiene System, which uses specially designed saline pods clipped into place on the Nose Cleaner and two nostril plugs. One plug delivers the saline liquid into your nostril, while the other uses a vacuum to gently pull the liquid through the sinus cavity. 

Their website says this is the world’s first handheld nasal irrigator that uses suction for irrigation, and that their patented system eliminates the users’ need for measuring and cleaning up. 

Cost/Price Plans

The Navage Nose Cleaner Starter Kit currently costs $59.95 and includes the Nose Cleaner unit, the AA batteries necessary to run it, the Owner’s Manual, and 30 Navage SaltPod Capsules, which are worth $19.95. 

Unfortunately, the machine must have its specifically designed SaltPod Capsules in order to run correctly, so customers will need to take that future cost into consideration as well.

Reputation

There are not many customer reviews available online for this product at this time, but those that are available make some interesting observations.

First, not everyone agrees that sensation of liquid being pulled through the nasal passages is much more comfortable – or any more comfortable – than pushing the liquid through the nasal passages. 

And though the SaltPods definitely eliminate the need to measure and mix the saline solution yourself, there is still some “cleanup” involved with the nasal irrigation process even when using the Navage Nose Cleaner, as the sinuses continue to drain the solution well after the machine is done pulling the liquid through your sinuses. 

But for people who genuinely suffer from chronic sinusitis, this mechanized product may be easier to use on a regular basis than a traditional neti pot, depending on your personal needs.   

Competitors and Alternatives?

As mentioned in the Navage website, this is the only product that uses a vacuum to pull liquid through your nasal passages, but there are many, many other nasal irrigation products on the market.

There Are Other Choices But...
February 6, 2019
There is one other choice that I have used in the past. There is a nasal lavage attachment for your WaterPik. I used to fill the reservoir with warm distilled water and mix in sea salt until dissolved, and also with grapefruit seed extract and colloidal silver, then shoot the water through the nasal lavage into one nostril, leaning over the sink for the water to come out the other nostril into the sink, then switch and flush through the opposite nostril. It worked great; however, it is messy. I think the Navage is better in that regard, as long as you are diligent in maintaining a tight vacuum between the nasal plugs and your nostrils. Once your nasal passages are clear consistently between uses, I recommend not using it any more than twice per week, unless necessary, because there are beneficial flora that are supposed to be in your nasal passages to fight off pollens, mold, mildew and other spores that needs to be in your sinuses. If you use this daily, that balance in beneficial flora is disrupted. That said, I end up using it almost daily in the spring and fall for several weeks and take probiotics to restore lost flora. I also advocate for putting some liquid grapefruit seed extract and colloidal silver in the reservoir, which was easier in the WaterPik. I wish Navage would make this process easier for those of us who are into health foods, supplements, etc., but other than that, AWESOME!

I like it however... prepare for waterfalls

I love it and use it twice daily... i've learned after the water is done circulating i have to bend over to the side etc while "suctioning" to help avoid a lot of water coming out of my sinuses :(

Even so, after using prepare for random and unpredictable spews of water coming out of your nose when you bend over or change positions LOL

Navage system is quick and easy
January 11, 2016
It took about two days to be comfortable using the Navage system, but after that it has been quick and easy. I can't feel the solution being pulled through, but you can see it filling the collection bin. It definitely removes nasal debris. I have a lot of allergies, and when i am done running it, about 30 seconds, I can breathe much easier. I love this product, although the salt pods are a bit pricey.

Excellent product

I have suffered for years from chronic sinusitis but the Navage has eliminated my problems. Easy and convenient...I use it daily and increase frequency at any sign of sore throat or ear ache and rarely do I ever get sick. Much better than Neti.

COMPANY INFO AND RESPONSE
August 21, 2015

Hi, I work for RhinoSystems, the company that makes Naväge. We are located in Ohio, but we started selling in Canada about a year ago. We have thousands of very happy customers there, and there are lots of reviews on the Canadian site, www.navage.ca.

We JUST officially launched in the US on Monday, August 17, with national advertising and a new price of $49.95. You can judge the product for yourself by taking advantage of our 30-Day No-Risk Trial. Naväge is a cool new approach to nasal irrigation; suction and the effluent tank eliminate the yuck usually associated with NI, and we think it will make nasal irrigation accessible to many folks who wouldn't otherwise be inclined to try it. Perhaps you are one of them!

I bought one yesterday from "Showcase", along with extra salt pods. The Navage is one of the best purchases I have ever made. If one follows the directions to the letter, the unit will work perfectly. My partner also purchase 1 and it took a couple of tries but he also mastered the use of the unit quickly. If you have sinus issues, or suffering from Sinisitis, just as I have, then I would not hesitate to buy this unit. I prefer it over a netti pot.
