the physician's assistant prescribed this for mom today.
(general instructions: you put 8 ounces of room temperature distilled water in the bottle and add an envelope of pre-mixed chemicals. while leaning over the sink with mouth open, place the bottle snuggly against one nostril. squeeze the bottle until approximately half the water has washed out one side of the sinuses. (the used water will come out the other nostril). change nostrils and repeat.)
who would have thought that there might actually be some sinus relief from this method? there are people all over the world--including a good number of doctors and surgeons--who recommend this for their patients. it works especially well if it's not clear if the sinus problem is bacterial or viral.
it is not recommended for kitties, for small beans, for big beans who are so sick that they can't get out of bed.
even though mom says it's not for kitties, it sure looks weird, and i'm not taking any chances. i'm not curious in the slightest. i don't want to take a closer look. in fact, i'm going to do a suzanne and hide under the bed while she uses it.
