Hello! In this video I’ll show you how you can cure a sinus infection with a homemade neti pot. A couple of weeks ago I felt terrible. I had a cough, a sore throat a cold and my sinuses were all blocked, I had a really bad headache – I could feel it around the top of me eye, the back of my eye down to my ear – and it just wasn’t going away. Each day I go to bed, thinking ‘Tomorrow I’ll feel better’ and every morning I woke up and I didn’t feel any better. So I had to do something about it I went online and I found a solution which I’m going to share with you now. As a disclaimer: I’m not a doctor, so bear that in mind as you’re watching this video. However, I’m not not an idiot either: I did look into the ingredients – I did look into this before I did it to myself and the following morning I felt instant relief, and within a couple of days the sinus infection was completely cleared, so draw your own conclusions from that. This is really easy to do. You will need; water; some salt; some sodium bicarbonate (AKA baking soda); and some hydrogen peroxide. You can buy this from any pharmacist, drugstore or even online from amazon, and it only cost a couple of dollars. Once the water is boiling like this leave the flame on another couple of minutes to make sure the water is properly sterilized then turn off the gas and add half a teaspoon of salt, and half a teaspoon of baking soda (or bicarbonate of soda). Give it a good stir and then cover it with a plate to keep it sterile. Now let it cool down until it becomes body temperature. If you’re wondering why we’re boiling the water that’s because a couple of people have died using nasal irrigation techniques over the past few years. This is extremely rare and it’s caused by an amoeba which can be found in lakes and rivers, and in very rare cases in drinking water, so by taking precautions that we’re taking here we’re sure that’s not going to happen to us. We’re also going to sterilize our bottle. To do this, just take your hydrogen peroxide, put a decent amount into the bottom of the bottle, close the top and then give it a good shake. We can now empty the contents of the bottle into the sink. Once our saline solution has cooled down to body temperature we can get our hydrogen peroxide and we want to add around 20 drops. Now remember, this is diluted at three percent in the bottle, so by adding 20 drops into our mixture we’ve got an extremely low concentration of hydrogen peroxide. We can now get our saline solution and pour it into the sterilized bottle. It’s a good idea to remove the label from the bottle to make sure nobody drink this. Now we get a kitchen knife and sterilize it with hydrogen peroxide… and with our knife we’re going to make a very small hole at the edge of the cap. There we are. Now it’s time for me to sacrifice my dignity this isn’t gonna be pretty, but I know it’s going to help you, so I am willing to do it. What we need to do is put this hole into our nose and then seal around it with our nostril. Then we’ll squeeze the bottle lightly and the pressure will force the water up into our sinuses. Now, it’s not easy to explain, but when you do this you can either have the water come out through your throat, in which case you need to spit it out, out or it will go up through your sinuses and then out the other nostril and will run out. This depends on what you do with your throat but, as I say, it’s not easy to explain, so you’re just going to have to try it yourself. Here we go then… That’s it! Then you blow your nose, and you’ve cleaned out your sinuses. As you can probably tell from the video, that’s not the most pleasant thing to do in the world. However, the reason that you’ll keep on doing it, is because it makes you feel so much better. Like I say the following morning, after I did this the first time, I felt as though I had new sinuses.
