Works for Me Wednesday


Today, in honor of sinus problems, I would like to share my spring-time trick that works for me. I always have issues in the spring, some allergy related. Although it seems that they have backed off some since having kids??? Maybe I just don't have the time to stop and realize how bad I feel.

The thing that has really been working for me so far this spring, is a Neti Pot. Maybe I was living in a cave, but I just discovered these about a month ago. They are absolutely great. It is a small tea pot looking thing that you use to pour a saline solution through your sinuses. Let me tell you, it cleans all that yuck out. I haven't been to the doctor begging for sinus meds yet this year, and don't think I will end up there at all. No sinus infections? No doctor bills? Works for me!

P.s. Tomorrow is the last day to receive your $25 for signing up for Revolution Money exchange, use the button on the left. It is free and super easy! Works for me.

I don't have the Neti pot, but I have the plastic squeezy bottle one. My dad recommended it and he's an allergist. He says that if you run out of solution, it's really just a mix of baking soda, salt, and warm water so you can make it at home.

Kinda gross to use, but in a fascinating, gosh-I-feel-so-much-better kind of way!

My mom swears by her neti pot. I haven't been brave enough to try one yet, but everyone I know who has thinks they're great!

I LOVE my neti pot. I can't get my husband to use it, but I think it's great. I used it all the time while i was pregnant, for some reason I had sinus issues when I was pregnant. I don't have allergies so I don't use it as much anymore but I loved it!
