Nasal passages are more delicate than gums though, so only fine quality pure salt in the correct amount in pure water should be used. It is also important that your mixing vessel and the pot itself are kept clean and are entirely free of soap residue or any other foreign substance.

Before you hippies (sorry Kris) start saying how AWESOME this sh#t is, you need to have disclaimers like those Kris posted ^^^^^.

You can do more harm than good if you just start cramming warm tap-water down your infected sinuses from a non-sterile device!

Like adding wood to a fire! (not gas).

I've had a couple bong water incidents. Mostly, you forget them because you are flipping stoned out of your gourd.

That and mescaline tea. Hoo boy!

pssst, 2 people have died from using a neti pot. 30 people died from the exact same VERY RARE Naegleria fowleri by swimming in rivers. 11,500 people died in firearm homicides. Over 34,000 kids died from firearm accidents.

Living on the fuking edge with this sh#t... reckless




... and OTC drugs pushed through the FDA by huge drug companies that make billions are safe, but salt water in your nose is SKETCHY.

(hint: the answer is easy... they are fuking idiots.)

Tried this once. I can only equate it to, 'the at home, waterboarding kit.'

Once you get the angle right, smooth sailing! If it dribbles down your throat, just open wider.

Also, obviously, make sure the water is boiled... because if you don't and you happen to be in Louisiana or Florida, there is a 0.000001% chance you could get a brain eating amoeba. SCARY!!!

I don't know how I lived without it.

My wife was using Neti Pot for relief from a cold with a sinus infection. It just assisted in spreading the infection and it got worse, to the point she had to be put on aggressive antibiotics to treat the sinusitis. My GP confirmed that the use of Neti Pot worsened her condition.

It may be good for temporary relief in some people for minor sinus irritation, but is definitely not the great cure all the Naturopathic medicine disciples would have you believe.

Neti is surely no cure for a serious infection. It is a preventative and therapeutic thing to do. Once a sinus infection rises above a certain level obviously medical attention should be sought.

Sorry your wife went through that. If my previous post seemed to imply Neti is a cure all I did not mean that. Just that it is a great way for me to keep my problematic sinuses and nasal passages clear and healthy.

Breathe well, my friends...

An MD once washed out my sinuses with a squirt thing full of salt water.

Thought I'd put that out there for the folks who think it's just hippie nonsense...
