The Neti Pot

Since being pregnant I haven’t gotten a head cold yet until Sunday afternoon.  Dun duhn duuuun… I knew I didn’t want and couldn’t take most meds due to pregnancy so I tried this Neti Pot thing everyone had been talking about. neti_pot I was doubting it would work because I was so sick and the function of it looked crazy..but after 2 days of Neti’ing it up I was clear and almost completely 100%!!

<——— This girl from the late 80′s LOVES it!

    Neti Pot instructions for your convenience:

    1. Prepare the saline solution (*) with lukewarm water and fill the neti pot. Hot water is irritating and dangerous. Cool water is not soothing.

    2. Tilt your head to the side as shown in the picture at the beginning of this article..

    3. Insert spout of neti pot gently into the raised nostril creating a seal between the neti pot and the nostril. If it drains out of your mouth, lower your forehead in relation to your chin. Relax. If you are calm, the water flows right through. But if you aren’t, it just won’t flow. If you keep breathing through your mouth, relaxed, the water should gently flow through the nose on its own. There’s no forcing it.

    4. Raise the neti pot slowly to develop a steady flow of saline solution through the upper nostril and out the lower nostril.

    5. During the process breathe through your mouth.

    6. When you’re done, exhale firmly several times to clear the nasal passages.

    7. Reverse the tilt of your head and repeat the process on the other side.

    Here’s a hillarious video of how it works!!! This is for you Paislee!

    I would recommend this to anyone that has a head cold or wants to just add it to their daily rountine!

    Stay healthy!!
