This is what the post is about
This is who you'll see if you google "Neti pot"
and an article if you want to know the particulars...
First off, I don't have allergies and I'm not suffering from congestion...I just had to know. When I get something like this in my head, it's over, I'm curious-probably best that I became a Christian early on in life. =)
So now you know what and sort of why...now for the how it went part. I didn't think it was that hard to do. Basically you tip your head forward so the water doesn't go down your throat and pour saline solution into one side of your nose. After sloshing around in your sinuses, the water comes out the other side. I know, weird. It felt kind of warm with a slight burn sensation...like when I used to get water in my nose at the pool as a kid. Then it just felt warm. Afterward you have to blow your nose in a tissue to get any extra water out of you nose...this is understated in the directions, I felt like I had to keep blowing my nose every now and again for 10 minutes or so after. Long and short, not that hard to use if you can relax and if I ever have a really stuffy nose or a sinus headache, I'll pull this thing out again and know how to use it. =) Also, it is recommended that you use filtered or bottled water since it comes in contact with your sinus system which is absorbent tissue.
I hope you've enjoyed this recount of my neti pot experience. ;)
