As a child I remember my parents snorting salt water up their noses to clean out their sinuses. They had heard about Shirley Maclaine doing this and she swears by it. It has been some years since they have done this, but when I got sick a month or so ago, Mother said I should try it. Well, I was hesitant to try this since I had tried it as a teen, and felt like I was going to drown. One day, not long ago, I found the answer to my needs.  While watching Oprah, this Dr. Oz she has on the show a lot, told of this gadget, the Netti pot, or nose bidet (pronounced bi-day, and if you don’t know what one is…look here). They even had a lady volunteer out of the audience come up and try it, right there on stage.

So, what the heck, I have ordered me one and I am going to try it for myself. I have had sinus problems all my life. I even remember working one day, years ago, at a preschool, and my sinuses hurt so bad my eyes were watering and the kids thought I was crying.

Here is a link to some info on this procedure:

Here is a link to a little video I found showing it in action:
