This was my thinking when I scrolled through my favorite lampworking forum, Lampworketc.com where someone was asking whether anyone had used a neti pot and if it was effective.
Curious me did some reading and for all of you who are now similarly intrigued here's a link to Wikipedia. Turns out it's all about nasal irrigation. For someone who is currently suffering from congestion due to a crazy head cold I was all over anything that would clear my sinuses. So off I went with DH in tow to the nearest pharmacy where I proceeded to check out all of the nasal irrigation kits out there.
I opted for a positive pressure device (essentially a big squeeze bottle) instead of a gravity device since I couldn't really figure out how to put a teapot to my nose. Anyhow, suffice it to say that I'm sold!! In went the solution and out came the guk. It's awesome!!! I can breathe again and I'll be the first to recommend nasal irrigation to anyone suffering from congestion whether due to allergies or a cold.
I'm not affiliated with these folks at all but liked the Sinus Rinse from NeilMed.
Hooray!!! I can breathe again.
