SINUS PROBLEMS? POST-NASAL DRIP? - HAVE YOU EVER HEARD OF NETI?
Many of my students have been giving their nasal passages a douche with the time-honored, ayurvedic practice of Neti.
It is a nasal lavage, given with a small neti pot, with a spout which fits into your nostril and the tepid, salted water flows
out the other nostril into the wash basin, taking away impurities, pollen, bacteria, germs, pollutants. mucas. I learned
how to do it when I was at the Sivananda Teacher Training Course 10 years ago, and have been doing it every morning
since then, and twice a day if I have a cold. Plastic neti pot $5., porcelain $22.
WELCH WELLNESS WORKSHOPS
AN OUNCE OF PREVENTION IS WORTH A POUND OF CURE
P.S. In 1990 I was a member of the Long Island Live Poets Society, and we met in the Islip Town
library. My poem "Blank Pages Beckon" is reproduced on opposite side. Hope all your blank
pages get filled with good things.
Blank Pages Beckon
Numbered pages of a New Yearšs organizer
stare blank and stark,
beckoning to be filled.
Chrysalis of mental energy
separately set in perfect blocks
meetings, lunches, parties, vacations
wait for birthing into reality.
Penciled in are doctors visits,
shopping trips, job interviews
pending transformation into daily drama.
Weddings, baptisms, divorces and custody wars
scribbled amongst work-a-day scenes.
Those chancey twins, sickness and death,
not known for scrupulous planning
will, in time, serpentine into the record.
The world orders its life on pristine pages,
harnessing time to its dreams,
resolved to master the randomness of fate,
by cataloging its schemes.
