In the modern digital age, information that has stood the test of time is increasingly drowned out by the latest crazes. Health trends and fad diets hawked by fitness gurus offer you endless ways to get fitter and be better than you were yesterday, but how much of their advice will actually “stick” and become multi-generational wisdom?

If you’d like to learn a dozen best-practices for your health that are “Grandma approved,” read on and discover 12 natural remedies that were passed down through the ages because they actually work.

1. Neti Pot for Allergies

A neti pot is a traditional remedy used to cleanse the sinus passages of mucus, dust and irritants, in much the same way that we bathe our bodies. Popular in the Far East, the tradition of the neti pot has not been widely adopted in the U.S. However, natural health enthusiasts have kept the tradition alive to aid with seasonal allergies and most drug stores and pharmacies have them in stock.

A warm saline solution is prepared in the neti pot using distilled water. The spout is placed against each nostril, and with your head slightly tilted, the water is poured into each nostril while breathing through your mouth.

The water flows out the opposite nostril, carrying debris and pollen that lodge in your sinus cavities and cause irritation. The warm water soothes and relaxes the delicate sinus tissues and breathing can return to normal. Like bathing, neti pots must be used regularly to adjust to the routine and keep pollens at bay during allergy season. Some important neti pot tips:

  • Use distilled water only
  • Warm the water to 98.6 degrees F
  • Use saline packets or make your own using 16 ounces of distilled water to 1 teaspoon mineral (not iodized) salt
