Rolling Neti-Pot Thread 2009

Gettin' our nasal irrigations on in the oh-niner. Haters and naysayers, keep away, this is where the genu-ine ludicrous shit goes down. Death to mucus, yes to breathing in wacky time-signatures, and a big double-deuce to the mainstream of water from your nose...the new rolling ILM thread that had to happen!

dear neti master cutty, the water from my bathroom faucet runs a little rusty. should i be concerned with douching my sinuses with this water? signed, elmo

i usually will only neti when i feel congested, but as long as the neti does the trick and gets the clogs out, does the purity of the water matter?

marlon brando baby tiger (elmo argonaut), Sunday, 4 January 2009 03:08 (thirteen years ago) link

neti only works for like two seconds then I'm congested again.

redmond, Sunday, 4 January 2009 03:09 (thirteen years ago) link

elmo--maybe do it in the kitchen sink?


cutty, Sunday, 4 January 2009 03:54 (thirteen years ago) link

redmond--maybe you should stop doing cocaine?

true players use __________ in their neti pot

a) pellegrino
b) moet
c) women's tears

moonship journey to baja, Sunday, 4 January 2009 04:04 (thirteen years ago) link

i need a neti in the niner asap!
i've had terrible congestion for like 6 months. i have semi-frequent nosebleeds, is this a concern with neti??

buzza, Sunday, 4 January 2009 04:13 (thirteen years ago) link

vah1d--true players certainly use women's tears. it's saline.


cutty, Sunday, 4 January 2009 13:04 (thirteen years ago) link

buzza--it's not a concern with neti, it's a concern WITHOUT neti. nosebleeds are often caused by dry/hot air, you may want to neti when you rise and neti before you go to sleep. and get a humidifier maybe?


cutty, Sunday, 4 January 2009 13:06 (thirteen years ago) link

one of these mornings youre gonna rise up neti-ing

i was sent to the temple at age 15 to have a sleepover with the pundit that helped me learn NETI to cure my chronic rhinitis! this is a true!!! i became gay independently of this

cutty, Sunday, 4 January 2009 19:13 (thirteen years ago) link

I absolutely cannot tolerate water getting up my nose (to the extent that I wear LOLnoseplug when swimming)-- I imaging neti-ing is a similar (horrendous) sensation? If so no way in hell am I getting up in that bitch.

quincie, Sunday, 4 January 2009 19:49 (thirteen years ago) link

I need to get back into this.

quincie--it is a wonderful sensation. best part is when you violently eject all the saline from your nasal passages and you see fun stuff in the sink.


cutty, Sunday, 4 January 2009 23:02 (thirteen years ago) link

what fun stuff, bugs? boogers?

after the neti pot clears up your schnozz thru water:

you're supposed to be able to use a NETI CORD or rope thing to completely clear out the mucus / your! painful fun!

I feel like I've cheated the allergies system.
I love looking at myself in the mirror while neti-ing. It's wild!

four months pass...

Crap, I always knew I needed to look into shit cuz my nasal passage perpetually feels congested or narrow or whatever, but damn I had no idea. I just just tried this for the first time (just pouring the saline solution through didn't do a whole lot so I just stuck my nose in a cup of the stuff and snorted, which seemed to work), and it's like seeing a new color. I've never been able to breathe through my nose like this. That I can recall. Awesome.

so I just stuck my nose in a cup of the stuff and snorted

yr doing it RONG!

cutty, Monday, 2 November 2009 23:00 (twelve years ago) link

From a wiki:

The simplest technique is to snort water from cupped hands. Spraying the solution into the nostrils is more convenient, but also less effective. The most effective methods ensure that the liquid enters through one nostril and then either runs out of the other nostril or goes through the nasal cavity to the back of the throat from where it may be spat out. The necessary pressure comes from gravity, from squeezing a plastic bottle or a syringe, or from an electrical pump.[3]

Wasn't really flowing using the bow-tilt-pour method. I think I may have an extra narrow nasal passage.

three weeks pass...

Doctor said to neti. I'm scared of it!

tehresa, Friday, 27 November 2009 22:35 (twelve years ago) link

I gotta try this. Can I get from local chemist?

George Mucus (ledge), Saturday, 28 November 2009 00:03 (twelve years ago) link

i remember these threads from years ago, but i got real sick in september, knocked out for three days and terrible sinus pressure and headaches from it. couldn't find a pot at duane reade so i got the neti bottle w/ salt packets where you slightly squeeze for pressure (rather than gravity).

cleaned me out good, headache went away in minutes.

sanskrit, Saturday, 28 November 2009 03:04 (twelve years ago) link

i did this earlier but headache didn't totally go away. maybe i needed to do it longer?

tehresa, Saturday, 28 November 2009 03:06 (twelve years ago) link

maybe it's cause i wasn't using women's tears

tehresa, Saturday, 28 November 2009 03:11 (twelve years ago) link

Make sure it's warm enough. Add 1/2 as much baking soda as you do salt to buffer the solution and cut through/clear out more mucus. Add the same amount of xylitol crystals as baking soda for extra bacteria death. Run the full amount right to left and left to right.

Jaq, Saturday, 28 November 2009 03:14 (twelve years ago) link

you can do it twice per nostril if you're not feeling fully better.
my issue has always been that i get water in my ear canal and that sucks. Talked to a doctor about it and they reminded me I had tubes put in as an infant so it's a straight shot from sinuses to ears.
