Can someone please share with me the main difference between using a Neti-Pot (w/ Saline) and just rinsing the nasal mucosa with Saline? This is for a family member with Allergies. My thought is that the Neti-Pot is more thorough with the force of the irrigation (plus you can additional things), yet I’m not sure if that’s the most significant difference. Your thoughts as well?
With a neti pot, you get the water deep into the sinuses where the pollen sits.
Without a neti pot, one cannot really get into the sinuses well if you just rinse the nose with saline. They’ll still have allergies as the allergen is likely residing in the sinuses, not just the entrance to the nose.
You may have them break some anti-histamine things in there also like Vitamin C, urtica tincture, quercetin, etc into the neti pot along with baking soda and salt
