I happened to be in front of a TV the other day and just about every single ad was for some sort of drug. The ones that always get to me are the ones for hay fever, from which I suffer.
Some years ago, I discovered the "neti pot," a method of flushing out your sinuses with salt water and removing pollen and other irritants. I use the neti pot instead of drugs and am completely satisfied.
What bothers me about the hay fever drug ads is that they convince people to take chemicals--for an entire season--that stress the kidney and liver when the neti pot does the trick without any side effects.
And of course, when we use non-pharmaceutical solutions like the neti pot, we don't end up with pharmaceuticals tainting our water supply.
So what I wondered is: What other remedies do No Impact Man readers have up their sleeves for use instead of drugs? Please share.
Meanwhile, I've added a video of how to use the neti pot below.
