Neti pot

I have a pacemaker/defibrillator implant and was wondering if anyone has ever used a netipot that also has this implant? I can not take any over counter medicine for sinus and congestion. I was using nasel spray but was getting no relief.

The Neti Pot is totally good and natural and works!

I love the neti pot.  I don't use the china version with the long spout like they do in India but just a regular plastic bottle with a sport tip that holds 8 oz.  I use warm water and 1/4 teaspoon non-iodized salt and 1/4 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda (baking soda).  Mix it up and tilt your head over the sink and gently squeeze the bottle so the water goes in the top nostril and out the bottom one, cleaning all the mucus and pollen and whatever is in your nasal passages and sinuses.  Use half then tilt the other way and use the rest in the other nostril.  It takes just a minute to do this and you will get very efficient.  Use a tissue to gently mop a few drips that come out your nose.

This is so much better than over the counter or prescription drugs.  It is an ancient holistic practice that has been around for centuries.  I really recommend it. This in no way affects your pacemaker.  I wish you the best!

Love my neti pot

I frequently use my neti pot with some salt. I’ve had no problems.

I use my neti pot as well.  There is really nothing it can do to affect your pacer/device.

You know you're wired when...

Your device acts like a police scanner.

But I think it will make me feel a lot better. My stamina to walk is already better, even right after surgery. They had me walk all around the floor before they would release me. I did so without being exhausted and winded the way I had been.
