Thanks to some slightly deformed nasal turbines I suffer from the constant symptoms of a sinus infection without the actual infection. Meaning that I often have pressure in my cheeks and forehead as well as my nasal passage. The worse of the side effects is that I have constant pressure and pain in my back teeth due to the problem with my nasal turbines. My EENT suggested that I have surgery to correct the problem. Due to the fact that I dislike the idea of having a tiny scalpel shoved up my nasal passage I wanted to seek out other alternatives. My twin sister turned me onto NeilMed Sinus Rinse.
The NeilMed Sinus Rinse, while it has not cured all of my nasal problems, it certainly has made all the difference in the world. The kit comes with an 8 oz squeeze bottle with lid and tube, 50 premixed packet of the NeilMed solution and an instruction booklet. I found the instructions to be very easy to follow. You just fill the bottle up with 8 oz of sanitized water. Don't worry the bottle is clearly labeled with 4 oz and 8 oz makers. Once the bottle is full you add one packet of the NeilMed solution and shake well.
When you are ready to being you want to hang your head over the sink as far as possible. Place the bottle tip into your nose and squeeze gently. Why this didn't actually hurt my nose it is a rather unusual feeling. The water traveling up one nostril and out the other is a very distinct sensation. Also you want to make sure to that you leave your mouth open because not only will the solution come out of the opposite nostril it will also drain out of your mouth. You will squeeze the bottle until it reads 4 ounces. Once you reach the 4 ounce point you will switch to your other nostril and repeat.
I love NeilMed Sinus Rinse. Once I have competed rinsing my nose the pressure that I felt in my cheeks, forehead and teeth is almost completely gone. If you are having issues with your sinuses then I suggest that you try NeilMed Sinus Rinse before you undergo surgery.
