Jalaneti should be followed by the proper drying of the nose by bending in all directions and exhaling forcefully, as any water residue can cause cold or Sinusitis. This is known as Kapalabhati. It can also be done in a standing position, with the legs apart and both the hands at the back. Bending forward, the water should be exhaled quickly through the nostril. The neck should be moved forward, backward and to the left and right. Exhalation should be forceful and vigorous and should be accompanied by a hissing sound.
Kapalabhati improves digestion and is also helpful in respiratory tract disorders like common cold, cough, sinusitis and certain allergic disorders
