My latest sinus infection has me finally checking out this ancient tradition from India... nasal cleansing! No, my Yoga practice that started in January doesn't have me going off the deep end... yet... anyway... this really works! My sinuses are amazingly clear and clean since I have been using the netipot twice a day, in the morning when I get up and in the evening before I go to sleep.
Yes, the antibiotics are to be credited also to my current recovery, but I will continue this practice even after this bout of sinus drama. It is supposed to prevent future issues... hey, this is easy enough to do, I warm up some filtered water, cut the little packet filled with pH balanced sodium chloride & sodium bicarbonate mixture... mix, and pour... into each nostril... grab a tissue, gently blow my nose and voila... nice, clean, clear, breathe deep!
Interesting that this practice which began with Ancient Yogis in India is gaining "modern" recognition... By cleansing my sinuses twice daily, I'm hoping to rid any bacteria and virus nasties that have settled in there and rid them before they get me sick again!
