    neti pot

    Has anyone used a Neti Pot before? I have been having terrible trouble with my sinuses lately (for about the past 6 months). I have been taking Claritan D and it's a great help, but I just hate taking medicine if I don't have to. However, if I don't take the Claritan I am miserable and can't even function I am so stopped up.

    I was reading about the Neti Pot and wondered if it really works.

    I know people that swear by it so I decided to give it a try. I damned near drowned. I guess you have to be smarter than what you're using and in my case the neti pot won. Others have said it works wonders but I don't think I'll try it again.

    I use it regularly. It really helps with my allergies. When I first started using it I got the same feeling as if I were drowning. They key to it is make sure you only breathe from your mouth, bend over the sink and tilt your head so your chin and forehead are at the same angle then put the spout into your nostril. Also, make sure the spout and your nostril have a good seal. It takes a little practice.
