Normal People Don't Do This

I seem to be forming a habit of getting sick at this time every year. I'm a little tired of it frankly. Well as long as it doesn't drag out like last year's fiasco, that'll be okay. I'm actually somewhat nervous about it. My friend, Crystal told me about this method of clearing out the sinuses. I had heard from several sources that it works. In desperation, I sent Bruce out for a NetiPot. Basically you pour salt water up one nostril and let it drain out of the other. It's funky. And for the record: I still feel like absolute crud. Just crud with maybe clearer sinuses. I guess it isn't a cure all.

I think you have to do it everyday for like 1-2 weeks. Which is why I just prefer to let my body kick off sinus infections, or use Claritin.

No- normal people don't do that and they definitely don't post pictures of them doing it.

Gross.

What do you do with water after it has gone through the sinuses? You could collect it in a pot and then use it back the other way.

You need to do it multiple times a day. It is clearing out all the nasty infection that just brews and multiplies. Keep it UP!

You are not normal That is why we all LOVE YOU!

Every year I mull the pros & cons of buying a neti pot. I'm just freakishly weird about water up my nose. Still I think it a great idea!
