Now that I have your attention….. Have you ever used a "Neti Pot" ? In early April of this year I ended up with a sinus infection for which I was prescribed antibiotics. About 3 weeks later the infection recurred, for which I was prescribed another round of antibiotics. Eventually the infection cleared, but as I suffer from spring tree pollen allergies, I figured there must be a better way. I had heard about using a "Neti Pot", which is basically a generic name for a device which is used to effect for nasal irrigation. "Effecting nasal irrigation" is a nice way to say putting water up your nose. For those who find upper respiratory mucosal secretions less than appetizing… the following description is not for you: "water goes in, boogers , dust and pollen comes out". That’s it in a nutshell. Once you get used to the odd senation of purposely pouring water into one nasal passage and having it come out the other, its absolute bliss. You can breathe…. and all that pressure deep in the bones of your skull is at once relieved. It takes a few tries to get the hang of it, and it takes a few tries to get optimum results by way of relief. Make sure however you do it right. Do not use tap water .. use distilled water. Sterilize the NetiPot device before use. Its probably a good idea to use a pre - packaged kit which has the little saline pouches metered out in the right amount. As always check with your doctor to see if this is right for you… you may have a sinus problem that precludes home treatment. If its all systems go, and you do it right, your sinuses will thank you.
