Lung,sinus cleaning: Average person can clean the sinuses by using sinus rinse kits, that are commercially available over the counter. Lung cleaning is achieved by aerobic excersize and cough. Depending on the circumstances, other medically available devices can be utilized, such as flutter valves, vibrating devices, and even enodscopic procedure are performed for severe advanced cases. These will require professionals.
