Why I say keep them clean, I've heard about the brain eating organisms. I actually boil water for tea and take some for the neti pot.Yes, just flush your sinuses with each shower you take. It doesn't take buying anything more than distilled water mixed with a small percentage of saline or some such disinfectant.
Mind you read this before engaging in random nasal rinses: http://www.fda.gov/ForConsumers/ConsumerUpdates/ucm316375.htm
Most people don't realize that a persistant post-nasal drip is a sign of a reoccuring and hard to remove sinus infection. Your nasal passages reach far further up into the skull than you'd think. It's not something you want to let fester. I never realized this was the case for me until I did some research on my own. Not being a fan of antibiotics, I researched natural methods and came up with a nasal rinse.Sinus infections remedies. Your thoughts and ideas.
Me too. Best thing I ever did. Always have both nostrils clear. Haven't had a sinus infection in 10 years. Used to get em twice a year. Little bit of salt in a cup of warm water, tip the head, in one nostril, through the sinus, out the other. Like Nomad said, it takes a bit of getting used to but it's awesome.I use a Neti pot from time to time. It takes a little getting used to and make sure it's clean. Otherwise I like it.
