Neti Pot Update

Back in February I mentioned getting a neti pot. This month it has been a great help.

The neti pot is usually sufficient to make my nose completely happy after being outside on a recent high pollen day or after becoming sneezy from dust after sweeping or moving wood.

It does not help on those few June days with the kind of pollen that makes my eyes itch, but most days is much quicker acting and helpful than allergy medicine. Hooray!

Recently my doctor recommended Nasopure, a nasal irrigation system referred to as the modern neti. I have tried both the neti and Nasopure and have found Nasopure far superior. I dont have to bend and twist like the neti and Nasopure seems to give a much more effective flush because it uses self controlled pressure instead of gravity. The angled Nasopure bottle allows for you to stand straight up while using it. Also, the salt packets that come with the product is much cheaper and seems more effective than that of the neti. I use one salt packet for about a week in the shower with Nasopure while the neti uses atleast one packet per use. Their website www.nasopure.com is very informative too and compares different nose washes on the market.
