Interview with Stephen Moulton – Himalayan Institute


Hello dear readers! Today we bring you an interview with Stephen Moulton, a Director of Marketing and Production at Himalayan Institute.

* * *, Mr. Stephen! Please tell us more about Himalayan Institute.

Stephen Maulton: Hello! We are a leader in the field of yoga, meditation, spirituality, and holistic health, the Himalayan Institute is a non-profit, international organization dedicated to serving humanity through educational, spiritual, and humanitarian programs. The Institute and its varied activities and programs exemplify the spiritual heritage of mankind that unites East and West, spirituality and science, and ancient wisdom and modern technology. Founded in 1971 by Swami Rama of the Himalayas, the Himalayan Institute draws on its roots in the yoga tradition to offer programs in self-transformation, yoga, meditation, and holistic health at its headquarters in Honesdale, Pennsylvania. Its services include global humanitarian projects, publishing books, a holistic health center (Total Health Center), and the internationally acclaimed magazine, Yoga International (formerly Yoga + Joyful Living).

 The Himalayan Institute also offers a range of natural, homeopathic, holistic and Ayurvedic products including the centuries old Neti PotTM, introduced in the USA by the Institute in 1972.” What are Neti Pots and what are its benefits?

Stephen Moulton: Neti Pots are devices from Ayurveda, a 5,000+ year old alternative medicine from India. They are used to irrigate the nasal passages with saline water to remove excess mucus naturally, wash away dirt and irritants, soothe dry nasal passages, improve nasal health and allow freer breathing.

Breathing through the nose filters and conditions the incoming air. The nasal passages are lined with a thin layer of mucus that traps dirt, dust, and pollen and moves steadily to the rear of the nasal cavity and settles in the throat where it is swallowed. Saline nasal rinses from the Neti Pot carry some of these impurities out of the body before they reach your stomach. They also keep this protective layer of mucus functioning properly. If the mucus becomes too thick and dry or too thin and runny, it is easier for bacteria and viruses to penetrate the nasal lining and cause the swelling and excess discharge of mucus we call a “cold”. That’s why gargling or sniffing a little salt water at the first sign of a cold is a staple of folk medicine and why health-conscious people in India use a small pot of saline to rinse the nasal passages. The Neti Pot continues these time-tested traditions of hygiene. Please tell our readers more about giveaway on Himalayan Institute is sponsoring.

Stephen Moulton: We are willing to send out 25 Eco Neti Kits for each of the next 3 months and can offer one grand prize each month that will have: Eco Neti Kit, Neti Wash, Neti Mist, Neti Stik, and our Neti Flu. This includes all of our nasal health category. Thank you for your time Mr. Moulton.

Stephen Moulton: It was a pleasure, thank you!
