Take the neti plunge

Any time you look up anything about allergies on the Internet, the Internet will spew a whole bunch of stuff about neti pots.

What's a neti pot? you ask?

It's this small teapot looking thing that you use to pour a homemade saline solution into your nose. If you hold your head the right way, it will pour back out your other nostril.

Gross, right?

Well, I bought one over the weekend. I was worried that I'd start laughing and nearly drown while using it, but I didn't. The trick is not to look at yourself in the bathroom mirror while you're using it.

So far, I've seen no reduction in my allergy symptoms, and I've also had some weird headaches, but I'm keeping at it. Will keep you apprised.
