I am frequently afflicted with sinus infections. I can’t even count how many I’ve had in the past year. My nurse practitioner highly encouraged me to start using a sinus rinsing kit. I have been resisting this practice for YEARS. Sinus rinsing was something I just did not want to try! 3 sinus illnesses within a month changed my mind. Here’s what I’ve found after rinsing my sinuses for 2 days:
1) I can breathe! My nasal passages aren’t nearly as congested.
2) Rinsing is not painful. I was afraid it would feel like I was drowning in a chlorine pool, but it’s not bad at all!
3) I feel better. I’m not sure if this is because of the sinus rinse or the fact that my sinus issue is healing?
I think the kit is definitely worth the $10, especially if it keeps me out of the doctor’s office for a while. Have you tried a sinus rinse? What are your thoughts?
