Back in April I started using the Neti Pot Consistently. It seemed such a vile little tool. It never got any more pleasant, and why would it? No matter what, using a Neti Pot means jamming a pot up your nose, tilting your head, and watching floods of goop ooze out of your head.
I started with the NP because my toddler was sick. Between him, my wife, and me, we just passed illnesses around and around. It was disastrous for my strength training and a catastrophe for sleep and morale at home. We spent the first three months of the year feeling horrible.
I find it no less vile today, but I am a believer in my nose pot. I’ve always been subceptible to to colds, dry sinuses, scratchy throats, et cetera. My routine now is to start in with the Neti pot at the first sign of trouble. Three or four times a day and more often than not, I’m fine.
It works! I almost wish I didn’t, because it’s still not fun to use, but it works.
If you’re one of those lucky people who never gets sick, feel free to ignore all of this and keep your nose innocent.
