Adventure and discovery was the enticement that drew Lee Elders to this wild lawless land; the supernatural world of the Shuara that live in a mystical realm of ayahuasca-induced visions where the ethereal world is encased within our third dimensional reality. Along the way he discovered his true self - his Kakarma. However incredible some of the incidents may seem this is a true story.

Default Sinus Irrigation System (electric neti pot?)

Hello,

This product came to my attention and it sounds good theoretically, but a few ideas that have seemingly 'sounded good' to me, did not work-out very well and this is one that I have never heard of anyone using, has anyone ever used one? I am reasonably sure that I will try it because I do not see how it could 'hurt' my health, any thoughts about it?

Love,
Di

Hi Di

Electric neti pot is new to me, but may I suggest you save yourself the expense and just go with a regular neti pot. I first heard of this via Dr Oz (Oprah's TV doctor). He highly recommends them. I don't even own a regular neti pot, I just use a juice glass of warm water with some table salt mixed in, one glass for each nostril. It really does help in cleansing and irragating the synus passages and nostrils, and if you do it daily, you will probably notice the difference for the better. It can be a little tricky (getting your nose at the right angle so that the fluid flows "up" the nostril, around the sinus portion and down and out the other nostril), but once you get the hang of it, works pretty well. Probably the water and salt is similar to the Ocean Nasal Spray saline.

Also, if your 'sinus' problems are due to allergies (like mine), my doctor recommends taking just plain Claritin to help (not the D etc, especially if you are on blood pressure meds).

Hope this helps...

Love...Peg

Netti pots are wonderful especially when there is forced air heat that dries out the sinuses - or you live in AZ where even when it's snowing it's dry LOL

You also might try oil pulling. It's an old Ayurvedic technique. Sounds disgusting but it works very well. I like good ol' sunflower oil (organic) - it has to be cold pressed oil.

In the AM - before you eat - take a mouthful (tablespoon) of it and swish - or pull - it through the mouth - for about 15 minutes. Then spit, rinse with water and wash with a toothbrush or your finger.

It is amazing what this works for - gum health improves, teeth are brighter, and sinuses really to feel better.

In Ayurvedic medicine oil pulling is used to supplement treatment of many illnesses.

It's inexpensive, easy and works.

Hi Brit

I've used Spectrum's Organic Virgin Coconut Unrefined Oil for oil pulling. It is expeller pressed. Is there a difference between this and cold pressed?

Question

I’ve oil pulled too – works great – but how do you dispose of the oil?

We’re told not to just throw it down the drain and it adds up.

What have you guys done with the oil after you’ve pulled with it?
