Cool Sinus irrigation

I'm new to this board. I use sinus irrigation daily to relieve both allergy and sinus symptoms. I am helped the most when I do 16 ounces per nostril once daily. Is this a good practice? Is that too much or too little? I use a Neti Pot with distilled water. Sometimes I use pre packaged saline solution from WalGreens and sometimes I just add 1/4 teaspoon of salt per 8 ounces of water. It helps me breathe much better and I am hopeful it will help me keep sinus infections (my mortal enemy) away. I had sinus surgery in 2000 and I have had fewer infections since then, but my allergies, particularly nasal allergies are always bad unless I do the irrigation and once in a while, even the irrigation doesn't work as well as I'd like, but usually I feel better with my nasal passages more open after daily irrigation. All comments and suggestions appreciated. Thanks.

Re: Sinus irrigation

I think they tell you on the NeilMed box to do it twice a day - AM and PM....at least that's what several people I know do. So I don't see a problem with it.
