Neti Pots

neti potA recommendation for neti pots on the Oprah Winfrey show as "the answer to your sinus woes" has generated considerable interest in this form of alternative medicine. According to the Oprah website:

It may look like a watering can or a genie bottle, but a neti pot—or "nose bidet"—may actually be the answer to your sinus woes. For thousands of years, Dr. Oz says people have been using similar devices to wash out their noses.

By pouring warm water from the neti pot into your nose, you can stimulate your sinuses and help clear out mucus. If the fluid builds up in your sinuses and causes pressure, you will experience pain, Dr. Oz says. This condition is known as sinusitis—inflammation of the sinuses.

For a far more detailed explanation, go to this Wikipedia article.

The Health and Yoga, Jala Neti Pot and matthewcox.org websites carry useful instructions on choosing the right neti pot.

Enter "neti pot" in Google and you can find a lot more information, including consumer reviews. Here is an Amazon.com reviews of a neti pot from the Himalayan Institute (picture):

* The design isn't perfect and the price is high, but for dedicated Neti users, this pot is great for travel. It weighs almost nothing and won't get smashed in your suitcase. I am happy to have and travel with this product.

And here are some Amazon.com review of the SinuCleanse Neti Pot:

* After seeing it on Oprah, I thought it was worth a shot. At first I felt silly trying to figure out how to use this contraption. But even after the first try, I felt very clear. I suffer from constant allergies and sinus infections, so anything to avoid them works for me. Anyhow, from my experience it really works. It clears out my nostrils and I breathe so much easier. I highly recommend this product to anyone that wants to breathe a little better.

* Okay, if you can get over the initial discomfort of a bit of stinging and only breathing out of your mouth for 10 seconds....it's not that uncomfortable. I have been using it for 4 weeks now and it's one of those things that when you are using it, you don't realize how much it helps but when you stop using it, you know it! If you have really bad sinuses (which I do occasionally), you will get IMMEDIATE relief. Be prepared for family members thinking you are gross though. When you use it, a lot of mucous excretes from the nasal passages (but that's a good thing) and family members might not be as happy to see this in their bathroom sink. Okay, that's what sink cleaners are for.
