I have struggled with allergies and sinus problems my whole life. I get at least one really bad sinus infection every year. It’s why I HATE spring.
So one of my girlfriends turned me on to the Neti Pot.
OMG where has this thing been all my life? The concept is kinda gross — mix up a saline solution in this little pot, then pour it into one of your nostrils and let it travel through your sinuses until it comes out the other nostril.
I said I know it’s gross. But it works.
The first time I did it, I felt like I was drowning. I’m not yet used to the feeling but man if I didn’t feel better immediately afterwards. Cleans all the pollen and what-not from your sinuses. It’s not sexy, but neither is wearing a face full of Vicks VapoRub when you go to the movies to see the Soloist — or at least that’s what I’ve heard.
Thanks D for the recommend. I’m breathin’ easy(er).
