Last week, I found myself couch-bound, battling a terrible cold.
Tylenol, Sudafed, nasal spray– nothing seemed to help. So I decided to try the neti pot I bought nearly 6 months ago, but have been too afraid (literally) to test drive. According to Wikipedia, using a neti pot, also called nasal irrigation or nasal douching (!), “is a personal hygiene practice in which the nasal cavity is washed to flush out excess mucus and debris from the nose and sinuses… According to its advocates, nasal irrigation promotes good sinus and nasal health.”
I was miserable and had nothing to lose. Here’s what happened irrigated my nasal cavity. Enjoy!
