THERE HAVE BEEN REPORTS OF A WATER-BORNE AMOEBA KILLING 2 PEOPLE IN ALABAMA WHO HAD USED THE NETI POT. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO USE PURIFIED WATER WHEN MAKING THE SALT WATER SOLUTION. PURIFIED MEANS FILTERED, REVERSE OSMOSIS OR DISTILLED WATER.
The nasal passages benefit greatly when rinsed with saline solution daily. Allergies, sinus congestion, chronic coughs, and colds/sore throats all decrease with regular use of the neti pot. Neti pots are available in health food stores and some drug stores. We have convinced many of our patients to try it for allergies and congestion. Once they experience the open, clean feeling after nasal rinsing, they’re sold on the idea. All you need is the neti pot and sea salt. Be sure to follow the directions that come with the neti pot.
