Neti Pots: A Safe & Effective Remedy for Allergy Relief

If you live anywhere in the southern United States, then you are acutely aware of the awful allergy season most of us have been suffering through. Here in north Texas it has been horrendous & even people who have never before suffered with allergens are having some of the worst allergies they've ever experienced this year. Personally, I have not dealt with allergies in years, but this year I too have even been affected by the unusual amount of pollens & other allergens in the air.

There are many easy, inexpensive, & effective home remedies to obtain allergy relief. I will be writing about my most used tips & techniques in the next few articles- tricks that I have had great results from & use often. Today's article will be discussing neti pots which I swear by & recommend to anyone who will listen!

Neti Pots:

Growing up in Texas I had mild allergies & seasonal sinus infections, but as an adult was able to control it through diet & using my trusty neti pot (if you have never used one, I seriously recommend trying it- its immediate relief of nasal congestion, post nasal drip, hay fever, sore throat & eyes, facial swelling, trouble breathing, etc. as well as maintaining overall healthy sinuses).

Favorite Article: Mike Adams' Article: 10 Worst Toxins Hidden in Foods & Supplements

I was recently sent a great article that's worth checking out, 10 Worst Toxins Hidden in Vitamins, Supplements, & Health Foods written by Mike Adams, editor of  

The article discusses important information we should all be familiar with when buying food & supplements such as maltodextrin, GMOs, MSG, & other additives that can be easily overlooked but do great harm to our bodies. An investigative journalist & activist in the natural food industry for over a decade, Mr. Adams routinely runs laboratory tests on products to ensure the quality of the product meets with the information on the labels, government guidelines, etc. Mr. Adams also spot checks product formulations & certified organic food production, interviewing companies as a supervisor of a USDA-certified organic food production & packing facility.
