Here I am. Sick again.
This has been a long winter (now spring) and I am at the end of my rope. I have been eating well (pizza contains all of the food groups. right?). Exercise has been on the schedule regularly. Besides moving to someplace warm and tropical, I don't know what else to do.
I've heard a ton about the Netti pot and all of it's wonders. The Netti pot looks enough like Aladdin's lamp that it must be magical.
Basically you buy one of these simply-designed Netti pots. Add a saline solution packet and warm tap water. Then it gets weird....
Put the tip of the pot up to one nostril. Tip your head. Breathe through your mouth and pour.
The sensation is a bit like jumping in the water without plugging your nose.
The even weirder part is that there are a few seconds between when you pour the saline water in one nostril and when it streams out of the other nostril. Where does it go? My squeamish self doesn't really want to know.
Lots of people swear by the Netti pot, but it didn't do anything for my stuffy head and throbbing sinuses....Although I haven't given up on the pot yet. When the next cold rolls around, I'll give it another whirl.
