Subject: RE: BS: Migraine sufferers, advice please?
Gurney, I am posting the results of a Google search on neti pots. You fill it with warm water and a small amount of salt, bend over from the hips over a sink, tip your head to one side, put the spout of this thing into the upper nostril and let it wash through your sinuses and drain out the other side. Between what washes out and what you can dislodge by blowing your nose after it runs through, you can clean a lot of crud from your poor aching sinuses. Don't make the water too hot, and don't use too much salt.

My ex gave me one of these, and it took me a while to get up the nerve to try it. But my kids use it willingly every so often when they have sinus problems, and it does help.
