It is cold, sinus infection and flu season again. I hate to take medicine unless I have absolutely no other alternative, so I was really happy when a friend of mine told me about her neti pot. I have used one ever since and just love it. I think when you can treat your body naturally instead of with chemicals, it is always a good thing. I use mine every day (and twice a day in the Fall and Winter) as a preventive measure. But, you can start using one when you are sick too. I have not had a single sinus infection or cold in the two years I have used it.
Since I started using one, I have seen Dr. Oz demonstrate it on Oprah and I have seen it demonstrated on The Doctors. I purchased mine at a health food store, but since then, I have seen them in Bed, Bath and Beyond and your local drugstore may have them too.
If you do not know what a neti pot is here are a few articles you may want to read:

I just thought I would offer this idea to anyone who is not familiar with the neti pot---it may help you get through the winter a little healthier.
