Neti-Pot Sinus Relief!

A huge sinus infection resulted from the great flu of 2014. Sinus pain like no other. Knock you on your ass, can’t open your eyes, every position is utter death, pain.  This is new for me. Prior to having a baby, this pain was a complete mystery. I apologize to all those sinus sufferers that I pretend pitied in the past.

In order to get ANY relief before my primary care doctor visit – three days away, I got some advice from my hubby’s buddy who is a really good doctor. Afrin. That was heaven – what a relief. The pressure was gone, but on the third day, I knew this was actually turning me into an Afin addict and not healing me because the cravings for the diminishing relief were coming faster and faster. Luckily, my regular doctor finally had time for me. He told me to STOP Afrin IMMEDIATELY. This would result in major pain as I was just stuffing myself up more, and I knew it. He brings out the dreaded Sinus Rinse package – closely related to the Neti Pot, just not as fun to say.

The thought of the Neti Pot is absolutely terrifying. Willingly squirting water into your nose and possibly drowning!? After searching for Neti on my reliable sources – blogs and You Tube – I had armed myself with enough knowledge to be brave and go for it. I boiled my water, added my salt, leaned over the sink, opened my mouth and prepared to drown. It was disappointingly uneventful. I did flush out my sinuses for the first time. While I freaked out with the water coming out of my other nostril and mouth – I did not drown. It takes some practice – but guess what. You will feel better almost immediately.

Oh Neti Pot! I have discovered your scary joys and will always have you in my medicine cabinet!

You can also Check out this Instructional Video I skipped to the end and got the actual massage instructions and this does work. Even the ‘create a vacuum’ part when rubbing your arms. Try this massage and the Neti-Pot and I know you will feel feel much better, until you can get to the doctor.
