I have been so sick this week with some sort of cold/flu that has me down and out! I don't like to take lots of medicines, so my Neti Pot is saving me!
What is a Neti Pot, you ask? It's this little teapot looking thing:
I got mine from CVS Pharmacy, but most health and beauty sections carry this item today.
Though the neti pot is new to us, it actually began in ancient India many centuries ago.
A neti pot cleans your sinuses, relieving pressure and congestion from colds and allergies. It kind of reminds me of when I used to spray saline up my baby's nose when they had a cold.
You add the little salt packet, fill the neti with lukewarm water, insert the spout in one nostril, then tilt your head to the side. The water will travel up into your sinuses and back out the other nostril, clearing everything in it's path.
I saw my first neti pot on a show with Dr. Oz and only just bought one about 6 months ago.
Do you neti?
