Recently, there have
been a splurge of videos on Youtube professing several things about
neti – from demos to product advertising to fun videos exploring
different mixtures and funny models for their neti.
I thought it would be
good to caution folks seriously looking at the practice as a therapy
For one, please treat
the ‘fun’ videos as just that – fun. Please don’t read anything into
it from a user perspective. Many of them are actually seen putting
up dangerous stuff up their noses. Or then, doing the practice
shoddily and then blaming the process rather than themselves!
But more dangerous
than the outright fun videos are the amateur ones. While the motive
is often genuine which is to demonstrate - if not to brag :), the
amateur approach can make the practice a bit disconcerting for some.
Simple things like the angles or the drying process are taken
casually, which can cause discomfort to the new user.
As with all things
started with noble intentions but open to misuse, it is becoming
increasingly difficult to spot the gems from among the stones
I have had a chance
to view some of these, and as always the video that stands out for
its clarity and simplicity of learning is the video at:
… nothing to beat it from a learner’s
point of view.
But if you’re just looking for the
funny side, have a blast – youtube won’t disappoint :)
