  • Neti Pot

    This is my first time on this forum but have been using a neti pot for quite awhile. If you have a sinus infection, making a saline solution using 1 part baking soda to 2 parts non iodized kosher salt (i.e. 1/2 tsp baking soda, 1 tsp salt per 16 oz. of body temperature water) or, if using coarse himalayan sea salt, then only half as much. Without an infection, just the salt is fine, but the baking soda is recommended as it makes the solution gentler on sinunes and increases the release of mucus. If you are not sick, then only 1/2 tsp non iodized kosher salt or 1/4 tsp. of coarse himalayan sea salt per 16 oz distilled or previously boiled, room temperature water. Someone asked about ear cleaning with the neti pot. When you use the neti pot properly, if your ears are clogged up for any reason, you will definitely feel the release in your ears...a little popping sound. Regular use of the neti pot will definitely keep your ears clean, as well. Just remember to always use distilled water, or boil the water first.  I have a friend who is now sick. Instead of using prior boiled or distilled water, she used Ozarka bottled water in her neti pot. That was 2 days ago. By yesterday, she was sick with a stomach bug. So sick that she couldn't eat all day or get out of bed except to go to the bathroom, which was often. She wasn't around any sick people so it had to be the neti pot. Can anyone give me their thoughts on the ways we can get sick from using the neti pot? I'm calling my sick friend now to make sure she hasn't gotten any worse!
