I heard about the Neti Pot from a friend, a couple months ago when I was suffering from horrific seasonal allergies (if you have not experienced Texas’ high pollen season, you have not truly suffered…) A big support of gargling w/ salt water to prevent sore throats, I was optimistic about the sinus rinse. (Same friend also said that true love is sharing the same Neti Pot…)

So, did it work?! It blew me out of the water. My daughter and I both suffer from seasonal allergies (last year she missed several weeks worth of school because it was so bad!) This year we have looked allergens in the eye, daring them to try. Jaden has missed NO school because of allergy related illnesses or fatigue and every night she uses the Neti Pot, she sleeps soundly, without any congestion or snoring!
Whenever I feel a cold or sinus infection coming on (i.e. tired, nasal congestion, sore throat), I tell Jaden to grab a bottle of water and pour the mixture into the container while I warm up the filtered water. Works like magic. Considering how much you end up paying on Zrytec (even generic!!), Benadryl, and other decongestants and antihistamines, Neti Pot is the best deal! (And if there’s one thing I know, it’s how to save money!!)
I also have recommended the Neti Pot to my parents, both nurses, who tried it warily at first but no also rinse regularly.
Vote for Jaden – Even 7 Year Olds Love It!
