Do you ever suffer from allergies or a stuffy nose?  I sure do.  Be it pollen filling the air outside, or various indoor allergens, like dust, pet dander, mildew, etc, I have it all.  And it sure can cause problems with my sinuses!  Lately, I’ve been having a stuffed up nose all the time, and finally, I got sick of it, and pulled out my Neti Pot.

A Neti Pot is a device (usually a ceramic vessel) that allows you to pour a safe, natural saline (salt) solution into your nasal cavity.  The solution goes in one nostril, through your sinuses, and back out the other nostril or your mouth.  This loosens and washes out any mucous or other yuckies to be cleansed from your sinuses.  It’s really a very simple process, and I always feel lighter in my sinus area after using it!

It can be a little tricky to use at first, and some people are hesitant to try it, but It’s really not that bad.  Here is a video showing how it’s done!

There are a couple main types of Neti Pot.  The first is the kind you see in the video.  Very simple and easy to use, but sometimes a little off-putting.  The second is not really called a Neti Pot, but it serves the same purpose and makes it a little easier for people who just can’t handle the water draining back out.  This is an electric style nasal irrigator that pumps the solution into one nostril, then sucks it back out of the other with a gentle suction feature.  A very popular brand of that is called Navage I haven’t actually tried this, but other people seem to like it!

If you’ve had problems like this, please share your experience in the comments!  Have you tried nasal cleansing with a Neti Pot or some other technique?  I’d love to hear what worked or didn’t work.
