Last week, I appeared on The Martha Stewart Show to talk about some of our favorite health tips from the current issue of Body+Soul -- which included black tea for diarrhea, broccoli for healthy gums (it’s true!), and for cold/flu and allergy sufferers....the neti. Yes, the neti pot. I knew I’d be talking about the benefits, but didn’t know that I’d be demonstrating them until moments before we went on air.
The funny thing is, this was not the first time I’ve done the neti pot live on the air -- my very FIRST neti was in the Martha Stewart radio studio, alongside Dr. Brent, who assured me I wouldn’t drown, but whom I made sure knew CPR, just in case. I turned out to love the neti, and appreciate the health benefits. And I do it fairly often myself -- and after watching the video below (I'm "neti-ing" at the 6:10 mark), you’ll either think, “Hey I could try that,” or you’ll be mildly disgusted. It’s ok. I understand.
