When I was sick last winter, a couple people recommended the Neti Pot. What the heck is that, you might ask? Well, from everything people have told me, it’s a little tea pot that you fill with water and this packet of stuff that comes with the start kit. You actually clean our your sinuses with it by pouring it through your nostrils. Gross. Yeah. I didn’t try it. But yesterday a friend called and I was telling her about my allergies and she’s using the Neti Pot every day and it’s helped tremendously. So, I’m finally gonna try it. I’m hoping to pick one up on the way home from Gamma’s today. I was telling Carol about it and she laughed, because she had had one, unopened, for a while, afraid to use it for fear of drowning herself. She gave it to a neighbor not 2 days before I mentioned wanting one.
So, we’ll see how it goes. I’ll let ya’ll know what I think, because I know we’ve got a lot of allergy sufferers out there. I just want my ears to clear up and they should if this thing really works as well as everyone says. The ears are all connected with the nose and sinuses and throat and stuff, so when there’s fluid in there, it backs up into the ears. Last year it was only one year, this year it’s both. I notice a slight bit of hearing loss in the ear that was affected last year. Nothing drastic, but it doesn’t hear as well as the left one, so I’m hoping this Neti Pot is going to resolve this, and at least be a supplement to the Zyrtec so I can stop taking the pills that make me stoned. Wish me luck!
