Advice on the Neti Pot
First of all, I’d like to thank you all for the wonderful comments and encouragement you’ve given me on my challenging Neti Pot adventure. I wish I could have responded to everyone earlier, but life has been taking me on different paths and various other adventures.
Now that some semblance of order has returned to my life (ha – famous last words!), I’d like to find out if any of you may have encountered what I am currently experiencing.
During the time I was blogging about the Neti Pot, I’d become quite diligent with the cleansing and was feeling confident that I had finally overcome my fear of using it.
Then, since I was breathing very well, I took a month’s break from the cleansing ritual.
Well, recently my breathing started to feel a little strained again. I knew it was from all the dust caused by a lot of construction work being done around our home, so I figured I would give myself a good Neti Pot cleanse.
Yooowzah! Did it burn! I was so dismayed – I thought I had overcome this. What happened? It had only been a month since I last cleansed. How did my body revert back in such a short time?
I’ve been feeling so disheartened since then that I haven’t tried my Neti Pot again. But I will be traveling to Vancouver, Canada, this week and I know I’ll need to get some cleansing done, because my allergies always kick in when I am there – except for my last visit, when I had been cleansing regularly.
Maybe the intensity has returned because my mucous membranes have been so abused with pollutions and allergies all these years (although thankfully not from medication). I’d really like to understand why I’m going through the burning sensation again and what it will take to overcome the discomfort.
I’d appreciate any advice from those of you who may have encountered similar experiences. In the meantime, I’m back to struggling with my fear of the Neti Pot – but this time I’m determined to overcome it because I know how beneficial the results will be.
So, here goes (again)…
