HEALTH BUZZ: NETI POT

netipotI want to start off by saying this is definitely one of the weirdest, and least attractive things I’ve ever done to myself, but the results far exceeded my expectations.  A neti pot is a container designed to rinse debris or mucus from your nasal cavity. It’s a game changer for nasal allergies, sinus problems or colds, all of the things winter tends to bring around.

To use the neti pot, tilt your head sideways over the sink and place the spout of the neti pot in the upper nostril. Breathing through your open mouth, gently pour the saltwater solution into your upper nostril so that the liquid drains through the lower nostril. Repeat on the other side.

I recommend doing this alone simply because it’s next to impossible not to laugh if you have someone watching.
