This nasal irrigator is smaller and cheaper than other electrical irrigator with a pouch for travellers and additional sinuair pocket to save us money for the first time. All this for CAD$40 more than the irrigator alone because the pouch alone can be up to $100. Prompt delivery because it is from Amazon Canada warehouse.
I got this because I had been battling a sinus infection for a couple of years. So many antibiotics (which make me sick and dizzy) have had little to no effect. Finally the infection got to the point that my ears were starting to feel like something was crawling in them 24/7. The Dr confirmed that it was fluid build up behind my ear drums caused by sinus inflammation. So I discussed options with him. We with with and optic antibiotic drop (yes the one you use for pink eye) and this machine. DO NOT DO THIS WITHOUT CONSULTING YOUR DR PEOPLE. But we both agreed, if it's safe for my eyeball, it would be safe for my sinus cavity, and the pills weren't working. I put 2 drops in the tank and did a full flush on each side twice a day and within a week my ears were still. Within a month I noticed that I hadn't had a single sinus headache, which was a big change from having to take double doses of Advil and Tylenol along with pseudofedrine every 6 hrs just to survive the day. Now I see my kids snuffling and sneezing because it's allergy season again, but not me. I wish I could convince my family to try it, but the idea of washing inside your head bothers them. Then recently I began having some tooth pain, turns out it was an old cavity gone rogue killing the tooth, and it had to be extracted. Now I'm also using the water pick function to keep that area clean and also do the rest of my teeth while I'm at it. It's far more pleasant than I expected and works better than floss at getting some stuck particles. I still floss because water doesn't scrub the sides of your teeth, but both leaves my mouth feeling cleaner than flossing alone. I have had this for several months and haven't had any issues with it other than I wish there was a larger tank, but that's ok.
This machine is amazing. I have a severe over-production of mucus. I'm not even sure it's an allergic reaction, because I do not expose myself to my allergies (cats and dogs, none in my life whatsoever). However, I have such a hard time breathing before this machine with all the mucus. I felt like hopeless. Like I was nothing but a roaming blob of snot like Slimer. I use this one a day, sometimes twice. The saline rinse has also helped heal my nose inside from an injury that refused to heal before. I would recommend this to anyone with allergies or even to have on hand for when you get sick. Love that the attachments can be used for other family members without contamination of the machine.
This is a great product and much better than the one advertised on TV that looks like a slide viewer from the 1960s. It's not battery operated like the aforementioned device and is much more powerful. We've had a horrible pollen season this year and this think kept me going. It is a bit messy, so it's best used over the batheroom sink. I haven't tried the optional misting or teeth cleaning heads yet.
After sinus surgery. This machine has been a lifesaver for me. I use it 4-5 times a day to rinse and also just because it does offer relief from the discomfort of the surgery. The strength is adjustable so I started on a low setting and worked my way up from there.
