Are You Ready to Neti?

After my curiosity in the “(Jala) Neti Pot”:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neti_pot was re-piqued from the “_Dr. Oz II_ episode”:http://images.oprah.com/tows/pastshows/200704/tows_past_20070426.jhtml on the “Oprah Show”:http://www2.oprah.com/index.jhtml, I decided to go “duenos”:www.duenos.net on it. A neti pot is a tool for “nasal irrigation”:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nasal_irrigation that can provide many benefits like better breathing, cleaner boogers, and possible elimination of snoring by simply splashing salty water up there. “Mayo Clinic”:http://www.mayoclinic.com/ has “this video”:http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/nasal-lavage/MM00552 that details some benefits of nasal irrigation and an alternative (athough similar) method to “the Neti.” “This fan site”:http://www.yoga-age.com/asanas/neti.html has a myriad of (some hard to believe and unresearched) benefits of the Neti, but towards the bottom of the page has a well-written how-to guide complete with photos of an unnecessarily shirtless guy (see picture above). For more, check out this “pdf”:http://www.jalanetipot.com/research.html that provides excessive neti info and you can purchase inexpensive basics “at this link”:http://www.neilmed.com/ when you’re ready to neti.
