Nostril Drain-O


Lately I've been attacked by multiple little bouts of the cold. One day I have a scratchy voice, and then the next, I'm sneezing all over the place. Well when it started interrupting my sleep last week, I knew I had to do something beyond my typical Throat Coat. I ran to the store in search of a medicine that would decongest my nose (and if you truly know me, you know that I consider medicine to be an ultimate last resort). I was chatting it up with a friend while I scoured the flu aisle, when she said "You haven't tried a neti pot?" Well, actually I preach the greatness of the thing, but yet I've never tried it for myself. My poor mates have heard me reference Dr. Oz's endorsement of the thing, and in fact I even convinced my brother to buy our sibling one of them a few weeks back.

So whaddya know? The thing is genius. Without having to spray any weird toxic chemicals up your nose, or depending on Sudafed, you can completely get over whatever it is that's ailing you in your sinuses. You simply fill up this miniature-looking watering can with a little bit of lukewarm water, mix with a saline solution (or salt if your kit doesn't include the packets), and off you go, draining it into your nostril. Of course we're all aware of the fact that if one nostril is plugged, it will begin to leak out the other. At that point, you switch and start in on the other side. It's unbelievable how clear you can breathe again. After a little bit of research, I found out that this is the method that my older brother has been using every day to help with his allergies--he swears by it. So whether it be for a simple cold, allergy relief, or daily cleansing...you need to start Neti Potting. It's becoming as regular as brushing my teeth each morning. Brush, floss, rinse, neti.

Btw: Although I would have loved to have purchased the beautiful off-white ceramic pot from Whole Foods, I didn't have many options other than Walgreens at eleven at night..therefore I ended up with a steal of a SinuCleanse $9 kit that's currently on sale (don't believe the site--go in for the real deal). I figure it's going in my nose--no need to get fancy.

I don't know how sold I am on this one... I kind of have a giant nose and I'm worried that there might be a cup or two that doesn't wash back out for a while... seriously, I don't know how sold I am on this one, though that whole "ear candle" thing seemed kind of legitimate...
