When I first heard about the Neti pot I was actually disgusted and a bit afraid. Everyone who uses it though swears by it and told me it did not hurt, and was the greatest thing for their allergies, colds, sinuses.
This past week I got a killer sinus infection and out of desperation decided to give it a try. After the first time – my sinuses felt better and it was not disgusting or painful. A few days later – I have to admit – that in combination of some extra rest, and some steam/hot towels on my face – my sinuses feel much better. I am now able to go without Advil every 4-6 hours and I am really thankful that I tried it. If you have issues with allergies, a cold, etc – give this a try!
