I am a nurse and a holistic health practitioner who knows from personal experience how miserable allergy/sinus problems can be. A year ago I started using a neti pot faithfully. It took about a month before I could feel the difference. At first I was reluctant to continue because it almost seemed as though my sinus problems were getting worse. However, I stuck with it and cannot believe the results! During a time when I am usually at my worst seasonally, I have absolutely no symptoms! I also managed to knock out a sinus infection that was trying to creep in within 2 days! I swear by the neti pot!


I use a netipot about every other day. I have had really severe allergies for 4 decades. The rinse has cut my use of otc meds by at least half. I still need shots and otc's but am grateful for any reduction in meds. Very worth the effort.


I have had sinus problems all my life. Headaches, the worse. I bought a netipot last week. Not kidding, the headache went away within 45 minutes. I AM IN HEAVEN. I still get some symptoms for allergies, but they are not nearly as severe and NO HEADACHES.

I used to get sinus infections about every six weeks like clockwork...until my cousin the holistic health genius gave me a sinucleanse neti pot. I haven't had a sinus infection in about a year. They REALLY work! :)

Hi, I have a neti pot. I feel like I flooded my sinuses with water when I used it. I keep hearing about how great they are, but I really feel like there's water in my sinuses after I use it.


Hot water with fresh lemon is great to sip at all day
at work.
Neti Pot is great. Once a week works for me!


I, too, never thought I'd say this but Neti Pots are really fantastic. Much more gentle than any other "sinus rinse" I've ever used. I use my neti pot every day and this year, when everyone is complaining about "the worst allergy year ever," I've never felt better! No allergy meds slowing me down -- no stuffy head and congestion -- this is the way to go for people who suffer greatly from allergies and don't want to medicate constantly. And, it's not uncomfortable or unpleasant at all.
