Neti Pot: For Sinus

Do you suffer from sinus problems? Why don’t you try using the neti pot?

What is a neti pot?

A neti pot is a device, which looks like a genie bottle or miniature watering can that is used to assist you in cleansing your nasal passage. First you mix lukewarm water with a teaspoon of non-iodized salt. You then pour this mixture into the neti pot, which you use to pour the mixture into your nose. The gentle stream of salt water, the same concentration as tears, flows through your nose, washing away pollens, mucus, viruses and bacteria.

For more information on this, you may read about it on:


Or you may also consult your doctor.
