How To Use a Neti Pot

Neti Pot Usage
A neti pot is a small clay pot (you can find plastic ones too which can be better in bathrooms with hard tile floor or if you have children where it's easier to break a clay one).  A neti pot looks like a small tea kettle with an extra-long spout on the end used to run saline water through your nasal cavity.  You can buy them at any health food store or online.  If you suffer from allergies or sinus problems, your first line of defense is a neti pot.  You can even use them if you just need to clean out your sinuses after being on a dusty trail or cleaning a dirty room to prevent infections and headaches from irritants.

What you do is put warm distilled or previously boiled warm water in the neti pot and then dissolve about a ¼ tsp. - 1 tsp. of non-iodized pure salt (you never want salt with iodine in it, just natural sea salt only.  The amount can vary depending on what feels comfortable for you) in the water, in other words there shouldn’t be so much salt that it feels like a burning sensation in your nostrils.  If you are already taking colloidal silver internally for immunity or would like an extra boost to your neti pot’s effectiveness you may add 1 or 2 tsp. of colloidal silver directly to your neti pot in addition to the salt.  Once salt is fully dissolved you tilt your head to the side toward your shoulder, as you put the spout in one nostril and let the water drip out the other nostril.  If you feel water coming into your mouth then you need to tilt your head at a back angle more so that the water only flows out of your other nostril.  Do this two times a day (preferably in the shower or bath tub because it is messy) and you will feel immediate relief as the gentle salt water cleanses out your whole nasal cavity to fight infection, inflammation and irritation.  You can use a neti pot up to 2 times a day every day if you choose.

****IMPORTANT***** You should always boil your water first or use distilled water warmed up, as there can be foreign microbes in most tap water that can cause health problems.  Also, bleach your neti pot with a diluted solution of bleach and water in between uses so you don’t re-infect your sinuses with bacteria from last usage.
