Do You Use a Neti Pot?

Neti Pot

I don’t know about you, but seasonal allergies have been rough for me this spring, and I’m  about to  go back to using my neti pot, that I generally only have to use when I come down with a cold.

The reason neti pots, or the squeeze bottle version that I prefer, work is that they flush any pollen, dander, or other allergens out of your nasal passages before your immune system can react. I opt for the squeeze bottle because I never could quite get the head positioning for the neti pot right.

If a saline rinse isn’t for you, try these other seasonal allergy remedies.

    I can’t always rely on the squeeze bottle rinse but it cuts down on the medication by about half each year. I tell everyone I know about it… if you haven’t tried it – TRY IT!

    Neti pots are great and so is having a dental check. Dental problems can cause sinus infections or cause them to be harder to get rid of from my experience. I have also used the strips that go over the nose. I have not had to take allergy meds since I have been using them. All these combined have made for really healthy sinuses for me.

    I used one in the past (and my husband has the embarrassing photo as proof), but I started getting ear infections from improper positioning and fluid in my eustachian tubes. I’ll have to try the squeeze version to see if that works better.
