One of Life's Best Kept Secrets

I'm not much for product plugging, but when you discover something like this, you can't keep it to yourself. Every year, I go through spring allergies which start sometime in April and conclude around the end of May. This pleasant, two month experience is usually the encore after a winter full of colds and coughs. Maybe some of you can relate. Last summer, a friend of mine told me about the ways in which he practices nasal irrigation. No big deal, right? We've all seen the cold/flu isles full of enough nasal sprays to clear an elephant. But this was different. I had just been introduced to...the neti pot!

The neti pot method of nasal irrigation involves a small pot that looks somewhat like the genie's lamp from Aladdin. You fill it with lukewarm water, stir in a little saline solution, lean over the sink, tilt your head to the side, and stick the spout of the pot in one nostril. The water will then enter your nose, flood the sinus cavity, and then empty out the other nostril. No, you won't choke! If you simply keep breathing out of your mouth, you will barely feel a thing. After the pot is empty, blow your nose and repeat on the other nostril. If you're a guy, I guarantee the ladies think this is really hot. Nothing turns my wife on more than watching snot-water pour out of my nose.

At the time I began this practice last summer, I was battling a painful and oxygen-withholding sinus infection. Two days later, it was completely gone. And I'm happy to say, nine months later, I've had the healthiest winter of my life. The one cold that I did get was not nearly as miserable as they routinely have been in the past. Using a neti pot is extremely cost effective too. The one time price of the pot itself is about $15 and if you buy the pre-measured saline powder packets online, a pack of 100 is about $8, and usually lasts quite a while. So don't just take my word for it. Try it yourself. You will certainly save money on all the cold medicines that usually just cover up the symptoms while doing nothing to actually address the root problem.
