  • use a netty pot.... it cleans out your sinus cavities and nostrils... google it.. it may look weird and look like it is uncomfortable but its really not and its good for your body to cleanse it like this often!

  • i use the saline nose spray that is for babies. It works and you can use it as often as needed until you are not sick anymore.
