Breathing Clearly - A Simple Tool (Maintaining Health)

A Practical Tool for Getting Rid of Colds, Allergies and maintaining good breathe - The Neti Pot

About 7 years ago, I met a guy who had imported Neti Pots.  Not being familiar with this porcelain pot that looked like an Aladdin's Lamp, I listened to how to talked about the pot's positive uses and I bought one.  

I was just reminded of the importance of this simple porcelain pot, after going to Bloomington, IN for the weekend and came home stuffy and itchy.  Aftering using the Neti Pot, the the sneezy irritation calmed down and after a 2nd time the next day, back to normal.

So to use a neti pot, you purchase fine sea salt (non-iodized).  You mix 1/4 teaspoon with warm-luke water.  

  • Let Dissolve for 5-10 seconds, stir again.
  • Open both your mouth and nose for breathing
  • Pour the pot in one nostril and out the other side

When healthy, there will be no obstruction in the nasal cavity, and it will fine like warm water in your nose

If you use too much salt, not fine sea salt, or have a sickness, allergy, bad breathe, you may feel a slight burn which is the salt killing off the bacteria.

Besides that, wash the tip with soap.  As far as how often to use a neti pot, that is up to you.

  • I use it once in a while to be hygienic and then if I feel less than perfect or start to get bad breathe.
  • If sick, then I would use it 2-3x per day.  Otherwise 1-10x per month. 
  • One could argue that you brush your teeth every day, you should clean your nasal passage too.

If you don't have one, it's worth having in your arsenal.  Here's a seller on amazon prime that has good reviews.
