is Neti safe?

Dear Wonderful People,

I am thinking to use Neti.

I heard many good reviews about Neti practice from some websites. The thing is that those websites are yoga websites so I think that's kinda biased.

Do any people here actually use Neti? I heard that it can heal/ease many symptoms i.e: sinus, post nasal drip, allergy, asthma, and so on and so on.

For those of you who actually use this or been practicing this, please please advise me with this new method. My biggest fear right now about the Neti thing is that the water+salt goes into my ear (from my nose) and stuck there, or give me ear pressure. I had hearing problem before from my sinus and I don't need any more operation regarding my hearing problem.

Please advise... Thanks in advance.

I don't use a Neti pot but I've irrigated my sinuses plenty of times using a little plastic syringe (designed for babies). I've never had a problem with it going into my ear. You definitely don't want to tilt your head to the side when you're doing it, however.

Thanks Kerry... Any other comment about the possibility of flooding ear or ear pressure because of Neti?
