Flush what?

Being somewhat crazed, having a headache every day since last week, I have resorted to something a little off the grid.  Not much, but a little.
I started flushing my sinuses, with something that you may or may not be familiar with, it's called a
Neti Pot

If you want to know more, and you click on the link, there is a video showing you how it works.  Now I could have videotaped myself using it, but I would rather have you see someone else with water coming out of their nose.
Call me vain, but there you have it.
If we were drinking and laughing and stuff came out my nose, it might be funny, but this really isn't all that comical.
The very first time I did it was weird, but the second time, it started to feel almost natural.

I must say that my head felt instant relief, for the first time in a while, and today my headache is minimal.

It's Sunday, so I made some Ribollita, my version, with added fresh spinach.  Then I made a quick trip to the studio to feed cats, and check everything.
Then I went to lunch with some family.

My goal today is to put a warp for dish towels on the Compact loom I have in my living room.  That should do it for me.  Along with a Roy boy walk.
Sometimes it is good to keep your aspirations reasonable.  Then you are sure to not be disappointed.

Keeping it short today.   But before I go back to my warp, I will leave you with a video worth watching.
No, you won't be enlightened, and it's not educational.  It is, however, guaranteed to lighten your mood, whatever it is.

I think perhaps these guys are going right past the studio.......Hmm.   So that's what's happening.

I've used the Neti Pot before. The only thing you need to be aware of is that your nose may "leak" water for a while. Very healthy for your sinuses.

I"ve heard of that pot thing, have friends who swear by it. It seems god awful, but at least now I know what they are talking about -- it really is a little tea pot!

I love that commercial!!!
Haven't seen it for a while, so thanks!
Glad the neti pot seems to be helping your headache.

Yes, I've heard of the neti pot. I know people who use it, too. So glad it's working for you! And that commercial is hilarious.

Yep, I like to use the Neti pot when I have sinus problems. It really helps

Susan said...

I'm glad the Netipot is working for you. One was recommended by a doctor for my dizziness (didn't help at all, so I quit. Never really got used to it)

Neti Pots are awesome. They bring such soothing relief. Just make sure you don't skimp on the salt....the more salt you use, the better it feels. And make sure the water is tepid. Too cold hurts, too warm burns. Keep it up and you'll feel lots better! Healing thoughts....

I use a bulb syringe and a cup of warm water with a pinch of salt and a pinch of baking soda. Works well and has for 15 years.
