neti pot salt use
i am much better at recommending it than using it.
i did find, at whole foods, ( or a health food store) little packet of salt.
before i found the packets i would use 1/8 tsp to about 1/2 cup neti pot.
yet the soultion was very rarely "just right"
i mesure the heat of tap water by " my index finger running water not hot not cold feels netural"
with all ducks in a row, the water flow is comfortable and i feel cleaned out.
when i use the pot to help with a nasel drip, i add stevia sweeterner.
it is an antibiotic and it drips sweet on the palet and does not make me cough.
when i first saw it used in massage school the person put the water into nose with head tipped, held both nostrils closed, and tipped her head completly upside down before releasing the water out the opposite nostril.
i saw it demennstrated on Oprah reciently with dr oz. i realized that 1/2 cup may indeed fill the sinus. they also reported rinsing promotes nasel hair, the fine protective coating stuff.
hope that helps.
ps nick and i are going to EFRC october 5 for an overnight.
