I bought a neti pot

I am trying to use as few medications as possible, I have in the past just put up with a lot of stuff instead of seeing if there are other ways to remedy the problem without using normal medicines. I have been using some homeopathic stuff and loving it but today I bought a neti pot. I am dreading using it. If you dont know what a netipot is it's a teapot shaped thing that you fill with a warm saline mix and stick the spout in one nostril, tilt you head and it all runs through your sinus cavities and out the other nostril. sounds like fun doesn't it? It is supposed to flush dust and pollens and mucus and all that delightful stuff out so you can get back to having clear sinus passages. I often get a day of really bad hayfever and two days later I have a cold, apparently that is the way things work but a neti pot can break the cycle so that infection doesnt get in all is well. I can hardly use nasal spray things so how I will manage this I dont know, Wolf is prepared to try it but he can snort water up his nose to clear it out anyway, I cant watch that either! Well, I've blogged it now. I'll let you know how it goes... if you want to know.


  1. Please let me know if it works. Have to admit I am skeptical, but only because I know a woman who actually had a medical 'procedure' (so they had to put her out) to rinse out her sinuses. Actually she had it twice, but after a few weeks she was back to normal hayfever symptoms again.

  2. Very interesting! I too will be interested in hearing if this works!

  3. I have never seen or heard anything about this thing, but am interested in hearing if it works! Would certainly make for some entertaining photos trying to use it!!

  4. Ok Girls, you asked for it so here it is. I've posted a neti-pot demonstration on


I'd love to hear from you, even if it's just to say "Hi, I stopped by for a read today"
