I'm developing a theory that the Canadian-born side of my immediate family (Mom, Dean, and myself) are cursed with faulty sinuses due to some innate genetic/molecular thingy no doubt related to the frosty climate we were born into. The Australian side (Dad, Lise and Rhonda) all have happy nostrils and contented sinuses. This, I'm sure gets back to the relatively dry, temperate climate of coastal N.S.W. where they were all roughly born. Hey, it's my theory. It almost makes me feel better.
Here's a photo. Sorry.
Anyway, I've had several people swear by the Neti Pot. It's a yogi remedy in which a little pot (that looks like it will grant you a magic wish if you rub it) is filled with a saline solution. You bend over and let the solution flow into one nostril and out the other. Has anyone tried this? I'm scared that I'll feel like I'm drowning or worse - actually drown in my hideous pink bathroom before we get around to renovating it. Let me know if you've given old Neti a try. If I do try it, I promise not to photograph it, nor will I ever run this picture of the happy Neti pot user again.
