I am a busy mom who has battled with horrible allergy symptoms my entire life. Or maybe it just seems that long! Unfortunately, my children have inherited the same discomfort of allergies. I never liked taking pills daily so I wasn't the best at keeping up with my prescribed medications for my allergies. As an adult, I also have constant ear infections and problems that can be directly related to allergies and sinus infections. I have also been diagnosed with a post nasal drip so I cover the sinus spectrum! My son, who is only 3, once had 5 ear infections in less than 2 months, all attributed to allergies! The pediatrician recommended an allergy medication to give him everyday. As a mom, you know that it is hard enough to make sure they eat well all day, none less to get them to take medication. I was also interested in finding a natural alternative to the medicine for both of us. I have heard of many home remedies and did some research to find something we could try that was safe, natural and hopefully effective.
I started using the SinuCleanse products just a few months ago after reading about them on their website. The SinuCleanse nasal wash system was developed by Diane G. Heatley, M.D., leading sinus expert who practices pediatric otolaryngology in Madison, Wisconsin, where she has served as Associate Professor of Surgery and Pediatrics at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine since 1993.I have been using the SinuCleanse Squeeze™ for myself. The SinuCleanse Squeeze™ is a squeeze bottle device that is easy to use and dishwasher safe. I chose this product because I felt it would be a perfect fit for my needs. It is so simple to use. The safe and natural saline solution comes in single use packets and can be used with all of the products in the SinuCleanse line. Within minutes of my first use of the squeeze, I felt immediate relief. I admit I don't always remember to use it daily, but for me, it is still very effective in relieving the sinus pressure and congestion I experience with my allergies. I haven't been taking allergy pills and I am not experiencing the constant sinus headaches I normally have this time of year.
I also decided to try the new SinuCleanse Kids Mist™ on my son. At first I was concerned that he wouldn't sit still for me to use the mist. Once he got used to it, he actually enjoyed it! He thinks it is a game each time we use it so he loves to play along. I am happy to report that he has not had any ear infections since we started using the mist. And I will be honest, I don't use it daily with him either, but again, that has worked for me. The mist allows parents to ease their children's nasal discomfort, congestion, allergies, sinus headaches and runny noses. Using saline to wash your child's sinuses is a proven and effective way to reduce and eliminate most sinus related problems. It is also safe to use on infants because the product is 100% natural! The Kids Mist, just like the Squeeze, has an anti-backwash valve to prevent re-contamination. Unlike the Squeeze, the Kids Mist has an ultra fine mist for sensitive little noses. It is safe for use on infants and children up to age 12.
Since using the SinuCleanse products, I was able to refer a friend who was complaining about her allergy symptoms. She began using the The SinuCleanse Starter Kit™ a few weeks ago. It has all of the benefits and the same great relief as the traditional SinuCleanse Neti Pot, but in a more compact design. My friend, also a busy mom of 3, has had great results with the Neti Pot Starter Kit. She has battled with sinus infections and sinus headaches for years and this season had been her worst. Now that she is using the Neti Pot daily her symptoms have been non existant! I know she told her doctor about the Neti Pot and already recommended it to a few of her friends.
