Neti Pot for Natural Relief From Allergies, Sinusitis & Colds
Need relief from a pressure headache or runny nose due to allergies, sinusitis or a cold? Try a neti pot. It gives fast relief.
Neti pots can look like little tea pots or the magical lamp that a genie pops out of, depending on the style of the pot. They all work the same and are all just as effective.
Two cups of water to 1 teaspoon of salt is what you’ll need to fill your neti pot. Make sure the salt is non-iodized so it won’t cause irritation to the nasal cavity, and, that the water is warm. Water too hot or too cold makes for a bad neti pot experience.
With neti pot in hand, lean over the sink and tilt your head down enough so the neti pot solution will not be able to enter your throat. You want it to enter through one nostril and exit out the other.
Plug the upper nostril with the opening of the spout and pour the contents of the neti pot into that nostril. Keep a steady stream going into the nasal cavity until the neti pot is empty. If you want you can turn your head the other way and repeat the process with the other nostril. Most people feel that doing the one nostril is enough, but it’s up to you. If you find that some of the salty water goes down your throat just spit it out. Blowing your nose after using the neti pot helps also.
So, what can you expect from the neti pot? It will thin mucus and flush it out of the nasal cavity, thus, flushing away allergens.
You might want to add xylitol which coats the nasal passages so that allergens and bacteria aren’t able to cling to the tissue. Or, maybe you want to add colloidal silver to the solution if your symptoms stem from sinusitis or a cold. Colloidal silver is a natural antibiotic that can fight infection.
The neti pot is safe to use three times a day or more if needed.
The ceramic neti pots can go right into the dishwasher after use, but, there are plastic neti pots which are ideal for traveling.
