Yes, a Neti Pot. There is a picture attached. Strange little thing isn't it? Anyways, these are used to clear the sinuses with warm water and salt. Does anyone here use this or something similair? Or, do you know someone who does? I want to know how well this works for people with sinus problems. Thanx for any feedback:)

**Just wanted to add, for those who have never heard of it...this is nothing new....it's been used in India for thousands of years.

I've never seen that before, but it's one way of irrigating your sinuses. My allergist gave me an olive tip nozzle to use with the WaterPik, for nasal irrigation. It's wonderful to be able to breathe again!

I remember the word nettie being another name for an outside toilet, seems strange to use it for that.

A water pik? Isn't that kind of high pressure? I'd think it would give me a new headache. But clearing my sinuses sounds wonderufl. Drugs haven't helped me a bit this year.

I've heard of these and am familiar with how they're used, but I've never tried one myself. A lot of people swear by them.

I think my sister may have one. She has terrible sinus problems and migraines. I'll ask her about it.

I used to work at a hippie healthfood store (i mean that affectionately) and many people bought them. They swore it helped.

I use an ear syringe with the long tip and make a solution of 1 cup warm water, 1/4 teas salt, and 1/4 teas baking soda...

I've done it ever since I had to have my sinuses unblocked by an ear-nose-throat doc and he showed me how to keep them cleared.
