Well, I didn’t think I would ever do it but I sure am glad I did! I’ve been using a Neti Pot for some time now and it has really made a difference with my allergies and sinus issues, plus I haven’t been sick with a cold this winter. My sense of taste and smell has greatly improved as well.
The Neti Pot is actually very easy to use and soothing. I was expecting the fearful feeling of inhaling a wave but it’s not like that at all. I found the trick to be in the proper head angle and the correct temperature of the water. It did take me a couple of days to get the routine down but now it’s as easy as brushing teeth.
“Rinsing with saline solution is a time-honored practice in the Orient. Here in the West, the nasal wash has been used for decades as a means of treating sinus problems, colds, allergies and chronic post-nasal drip and to counteract the effect of environmental pollution. Those practicing yoga and other meditative disciplines use the nasal wash to ensure free air flow through both nostrils.”
Some of the advantages of using a Neti Pot include:
- Soothes dry nasal passages
- Gently washes away dust, pollen, and environmental irritants
- Offsets the effects of breathing dry indoor air (especially in winter)
- Removes excess mucus… naturally
- Helps you breathe freer when practicing yoga or meditation
