Take Away 12 - Home Remedies

Well, I only made it to 10:00 a.m. on Monday at work. I came home sick and ended up at home for 2 days. Bad cold. I haven't been sick in years and years. I don't do sick very well.
More than once I have recommended the Neti pot to my friends and family. Years ago, I had a friend who kept bugging me to get a Neti pot every time I complained about my allergies. The symptoms got so bad, I finally spent $13.95 on a pot and wondered why it took me so long to try it.  While I love to give advice, sometimes I don't like to take my own. Thank goodness my husband was here to encourage me to get my Neti pot out and use it. I could hardly breathe before I flushed my sinuses but within a minute of using it, I felt so much better. I also have been gargling with warm salt water and it works miracles.

TAKE AWAY: Home remedies work, especially the Neti pot. 
Just try it. Best $13.95 you'll ever spend.



  1. My son swears by the Neti pot that we have at home. I on the other hand, have not been able to get myself to try it. Something about water in the nose bringing back horrible memories of when I was a child swimming. Not really, I'm just a fraidy cat. maybe someday I'll try it though. Glad it helped :)

  2. I agree with Silverfaerie... I can't bring myself to put water up my nose! I've heard good things about the Neti pot though. Maybe we'll be braver since you paved the way.
