Sinus Problems? How about a Neti Pot?

Sinus Problems? How about a Neti Pot?

If you have chronic sinus issues, pain and congestion that nothing seems to relieve, you should consider using a neti pot. A neti pot is a small reservoir with a spout or nozzle used to irrigate the sinuses. It's based on an old yogic practice with modern adaptations-chiefly the use of a saline solution to clear the nasal passages. Use distilled water or boiled and cooled tap water in your neti pot solution to avoid any bacteria that can linger in your nasal passages and be potentially dangerous.


Nasal rinsing can remove dirt, dust, pollen and other debris, as well as help to loosen thick mucus. It can also help relieve nasal symptoms of allergies, colds and flu.


Be sure to follow directions on your neti pot, and you may finally find relief from sinus problems.
