The neti pot


Neti pots are the embodiment of clear thinking: If there's muck in the sinuses, then wash them out. And that's what the pots are designed to do.

The neti pot concept was introduced to me two ways. First I watched a news clip of my yoga instructor (who has studied in Tibet) using one. It was fascinating. I was truly amazed to see my instructor (and all-around good soul) put a teapot-like pot up to one nostril and have the water flow through and out the other nostril. It was so cool!

The second time was when my sister mentioned that she was having sinus problems and she'd been looking for one. My sister, looking for a neti pot? So I went to the yoga place -- where I hadn't been in a couple of years -- and bought one for each of us.
