Millions of Canadian’s suffer from nasal problems and are constantly seeking different forms of relief. Sprays and allergy medication tend to be the most common solution to this ongoing issue. For years, I have met dozens of individuals who have raved about the benefits of the Neti Pot. I decided to test out this product first hand to see if it truly lived up to the positive reviews.
The brand I chose: NeilMed Sinus Rinse Neti Pot
How to Use a Neti Pot:
Step 1: Boil some water and once cooled, pour it into the pot.
Step 2: Pour in the Sinus Rinse mixture packet.
Step 3: Stand in front of a sink, lean forward and tilt your head to one side. Keep your mouth open without holding your breath. You place the tip of the pot in one nasal passage and allow the solution to flow until the solution starts draining from the opposite nasal passage.
Step 4: Gently blow your nose.
After following the instructions, my nasal passages were clear and I was able to breathe, but the results were only temporary. The symptoms of my cold were back within 15 minutes and I was left unable to breathe through either. nostrils. I can understand the appeal of the Neti Pot, but would instead recommend the Vicks VAPOINHALER or the Otrivin Saline Nasal Spray.
The Neti Pot 6.5/10
I will revisit this product once my cold passes.
