It helped and wasn't very hard to do. Found recipe on sparkpeople for mixture to use: 1 cup of warm tap water 1/4 tsp kosher or canning salt (no iodine) and 1/4 tsp baking soda. I saw the Oprah show six months ago or so and never tried it, even though I have sinus congestion quite often. Someone mentioned it felt like drowning when they did it, but I found it quite easy and not uncomfortable. I put the spark article as a favorite on my page in case someone else is interested in trying it. My doctor said she read that it is supposed to be helpful with sinus infections, even though she had never tried it. The pot was on sale at Bed, Bath and Beyond today and even had a $5 off coupon. So glad I tried it finally.
