Apparently the subject of Neti Pots is something many of us have been thinking about a lot. As for myself, ever since seeing the story done on the Oprah show, I’ve been extremely curious about the benefits.
We all know how crappy it is when it feels like someone stuffed three sweaters and a blanket up each nostril. And of course the flip of that is waking up with a long stream of snot flowing freely from the nose. Please tell me I’m not the only who has ever turned over in their sleep only to discover the mucus river pouring forth from the nasal area…PLEASE?!?!?
Anyway, I gave in today and made the very small investment ($15.00) to purchase one of these Oprah endorsed products. I’ve since used it once and the relief was definitely there. However, I’m thinking when first used this tool is a symptom reliever only!! The congestion in the upper sinuses is still present.
My thought is, if used over a period of time, this Neti Pot might help to keep the body from experiencing as many sinus-related problems. The instructions recommend daily use…like teeth brushing…wait!…who brushes their teeth daily? Isn’t that a bit overkill?
I’m keeping my fingers crossed for this little pot.
*Oh wait, one more thing…is it just me or does the tip of the Neti Pot spout look a little, uh…, phallic?!?!?
