Prior to my two recent sinus infections, I entertained the idea of using a neti pot. Frankly, the idea grossed me out. I knew that I would probably benefit as I have suffered from allergies my whole life and was even on shots for ~11 years as a kid. I even used to have a transverse nasal crease.
At the chiropractor last week, I mentioned my recent bouts of sickness. Dr. Six asked me if I’d ever tried a neti post. I confessed my aversion and she suggested this and let me borrow a book by its inventor. The book argues that washing your nose is just like washing your hands; both help toward preventing illness.
After a few days of use, I’m a convert. I’m sleeping better. I’m breathing easier. If using it daily/regularly helps prevent me from getting sick (and thus let’s me continue with my crazy schedule), I’ll keep using it.
What odd things do you do to keep yourself healthy?
