Jala Neti (the practice of using a neti pot), is an important part of Yoga Shatkarma (The yogic system of cleansing the body) as well as used in Ayurveda.
The Hatha Yoga Pradipika attribute many beneficial effects from neti pot use that range from profound physiological ones on the body, mind and personality to even clairvoyance.
Medical uses include; chronic sinus and nasal symptoms, chronic rhinosinusitis along with adjunctive therapy, chronic sinus symptoms induced by work-place exposure to sawdust, hay-fever, the common cold (helps relieve symptoms), allergic rhinitis, and chronic sinusitis.
It helps to clear access Kapha or mucous from the system, cleanses the sinus passage and may help with circulation in the head/bread, as well as clear access Vata (particularly dryness and roughness).
Vata people may also use nasya oil in the nostrils.

Like Neti (Jala Neti) tongue cleaning is part of the yogic practice know as Shat karma.One of the eight limbs of ashtanga yoga.
A tongue cleaner ( or tongue scraper) is an oral hygiene device designed to clean the bacterial build-up, food debris, fungi, and dead cells from the surface of the tongue. The bacteria and fungi that grow on the tongue are related to many common oral care and general health problems.In addition, decaying bacteria produce volatile sulphur compounds on the rear of the tongue; these molecules account for 80 to 95 percent of all cases of bad breath.
Ayurveda recommends tongue cleaning on a daily basis, at the same time as you'd brush your teeth. The coating of your tongue gives you a great insight into your current state of health and agni and the presence of ama (toxins) in the system.
