These things are miracle workers! I happened to be home one day when they were demonstrated on Oprah and thought they looked like something I should try since I seem to have "issues" with spring pollen. Eddie bought one for Cameron and it has made a tremendous difference for him. I figured if you can get a 5 year old to willingly put water up his nose you know the end result must make him feel better. Anyway, after hacking and blowing my nose (getting turned on yet?) for two days I finally broke down and bought a Neti Pot. Hmmm, it looks an awful lot like my Grandma's gravy boat but whatever, if Oprah says it works it can't be all bad. So after making sure all the blinds were closed and the bathroom door was locked (just in case) I mixed up the solution and followed the directions. OH MY GOSH....the Neti Pot is a miracle! I can breathe, I'm not coughing and blowing my nose and there was a GIANT benefit that I wasn't expecting...my undereye bags are gone! Can't wait to see what it will do for my butt.
