How can You get real Allergy Relief?

by Dr. Kilcup | May 10, 2011 | Articles, Chronic Sinusitis, Home Therapy, Sinus

If you suffer from seasonal allergies, and your nose runs like a faucet during that time of year, and you’re sick of taking drugs to get allergy relief, I’ve got some really great news for you.  Allow me to introduce you to the Neti Pot, a simple tool that only requires water and salt, and can significantly and immediately alleviate symptoms. Unlike most things doctors recommend for sinus relief, the Neti Pot does not use any drugs, it does not create dependence, and it is extremely inexpensive!

Classic Version

There are two versions of the Neti Pot.

High Performance Version!

The classic version is for the gentle at heart, those who need life to be calm, soothing.  It looks like a little tea pot, and all you do is pour it through one nostril and let it drain out the other. If your sinus problems are mild, the classic version will do the job just fine!

The high-performance version is for the wild at heart.  If the idea of being in control and squeezing the most out of life sounds good to you, this guy is the one you want.  If you would describe your sinus problems as moderate or severe, the high-performance version is going to serve you much better.

Real quick, before I continue, I want to be sure that you’re aware that sinus problems can come from things other than allergens.  I created a free document to help you figure out where your sinus problems might be coming from.  Just click HERE to download the PDF.

Video Instructions: How to use a Neti Pot

The videos below provide excellent instructions, and I highly recommend watching them first!

First tip, the water does not need to be distilled.  It can be reverse osmosis or any water that is free from bacteria.  (Obviously, you don’t want to be putting more bugs in your nose.) Secondly, the temperature of the water is really important.  The water needs to be “your” temp.  If the water is too cold, it causes a nausea like feeling, and if the water is too hot…it burns! The best way I’ve found to get the temp just right is to check the water against the inside of the wrist.  If you can’t feel the water against your wrist, the temp is perfect.  When the temperature of the water is just right, you actually can’t feel the water as it passes through your sinuses.

If you use the high-performance version, put the water in the bottle and then put it in the microwave without the cap.  You do not want the cap hot when you put it in your nose!  Add the salt after the water is heated, then put the cap on and shake it well.

DO NOT USE this without salt or with iodized salt, because IT BURNS! Get non-iodized salt and your nose will thank you!

After you use it, gently blow your nose one nostril at a time.  As you blow, lean forward and turn your head left and right.  It will help remove all the water.

Once finished using the Neti Pot, wash it with soapy water.  Then put the whole thing in the microwave for 3 minutes to make sure it is completely disinfected.

If you are dealing with allergies, I highly advise you to explore this solution! Feel free to utilize this tool as frequently as necessary. For individuals experiencing persistent sinus irritation, incorporating this practice into your routine both in the morning and evening, regardless of your immediate symptoms, is recommended.

I have been using the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for the last few weeks and It has helped me so much. I struggle quite a bit with work related stress. When I'm in the chamber I feel completely relaxed, so much so that I can bring my laptop inside and work without stressing. The calmness I feel in the chamber lasts for the remainder of the day as well. I have found too, the more consistent I am with sessions throughout the week the better I feel. The office staff seems well trained in running the tanks too, so I feel safe. I see Dr. Kilcup as well for my brain and gut health. Until now, I don't think I've ever known what "normal" or "healthy" feels like. Thank you all, sincerely!

Darrell is highly knowledgeable and really gets to the root of the problem. Unlike a lot of doctors, Darrell doesn't just throw prescriptions at issues. He will test and test - digging for the cause and then working on fixing the issue. He and his staff are professional, courteous, and a joy to be around.

I am very grateful to have found Dr. Kilcup and be his patient for the last couple of years. He has helped me restore my health back after being exposed to toxic mold for years. He helped identify and treat all of my symptoms I was experiencing and address the root problem. I was looking for the right person who could help me heal with natural therapies and supplements and Dr. Kilcup was the perfect fit. Every appointment and session was necessary and one step towards all the progress I made. Dr. Kilcup is a great functional medicine doctor who was also an advocate for my own health and well-being. I never received any care or attention to detail from other Doctors in past experiences except with Dr. Kilcup. Anyone who is seeking a holistic path towards healing or improving their own health should see him.
