Two years ago, I was in line at the pharmacy waiting to pick up some antibiotics for a nasty nose/throat cold. I asked the pharmacist what I could do to help prevent future sinus issues, and she recommended using a Neti Pot with salt/baking soda packets. She said that not only was it the best way to remove excess mucus due to congestion (I could barely breathe), but I could use it to relieve nasal dryness (that happens a lot to me in the winter), and remove pollen (spring is in the air) and other airborne contaminants. So give it a try, and you’ll breathe a little easier.
