NetiPots -freaky but fantastic!
So I decided that yesterday was a great day to just sweep dust around my house and claim to be cleaning...and I guess it wasn't because my eyes puffed up and I used half a roll of toilet paper trying to blow my nose as it needed to. The constant drip all day long was enough to drive me mad. And it did.
I got this NetiPot for free off of NeilMed's Facebook Page and I had stocked it away thinking one day I might try this if I get desperate enough to actually put something up a nostril and then let water run out the other. I HATE nasal sprays because they sting and are nasty so I pretty much wrote that off. SO after spending a complete afternoon in watery itchy runny nose misery I decided enough was enough.
I read and re-read the instructions then looked for YouTube Videos on it ( Visit our YouTube Page HERE or directly to the video HERE.
I have to say it is the weirdest sensation ever. You feel like your should be drowning and wondering why this actually works! I would highly recommend not waiting all day like I did because almost immediately after my nose dried it stopped running and completely stopped itching.
WHY DIDN'T ANYONE TELL ME ABOUT THIS? oh yeah.. Dr. Oz did.. my mom did.. the people on NeilMed's Facebook page did.. but it was freaky sticking a teapot up one's nose. Now I can honestly say it works and I will be using this every time my allergies kick me to the ground.
