Plagued by sinus problems? Invest in a Neti Pot!
The basic explanation of how the Neti pot therapy works is, that it uses a salt and water solution to thin mucus and help flush out the nasal passages.
- Rinse your nasal passages twice a day to flush out pollen and other irritants.
- Put saline solution (a 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1 cup warm water) in a plastic squirt bottle or a nasal irrigator, a spouted container that allows you to pour water directly into your nose.
- The solution should fill your nasal cavity and spill out the other nostril.
- Gently blow your nose afterward.
