Our respiratory tract is one of the first lines of defence, so it makes sense to keep it healthy and functioning well. Salt therapy offers an ideal solution that has been used for centuries by different cultures around the world with great success.
It is thought this therapy originated thousands of years ago due to the noticeable improvements in breathing following trips to the seaside where the air is humid and salty. These health benefits have prompted people from all over the world to visit curative salt mines across Europe and the Himalayas to inhale the salty vapours.
Studies have shown that this is not just an old wives tale it really does offer significant improvements for those with respiratory problems. The beneficial effects are due to the micron sized particles of salt carried in the salty air. These are able to penetrate the respiratory system, helping to mechanically cleanse the airways.
As an additional benefit, the sodium content of the active ingredient allows natural self-cleansing mechanisms to flush away impurities from the surface of the cells.
If a trip to the Himalayas is not an option, then according to research, using a saltpipe may be equally effective. A study amongst 50 people using either a placebo or a salt pipe for 15 minutes, three times a day for three weeks showed significant improvements in breathing for 56% of those with COPD and asthma. Around 64% reported improvements in night coughing and approximately 65% reported an improvement in expelling mucous.
The Higher Nature® Saltpipe Inhaler is the perfect choice because it contains salt from the Transylvanian Praid Salt Mine in a handy inhaler that brings the benefits of salt mine therapy to your home. As well as offering the same benefits without the expensive travel costs, the Saltpipe is very easy to use. Breathing in through the mouth piece and out through the nose, allows the air to flow over natural
salt crystals, stimulating the cleansing process in the respiratory system to improve breathing.
A few minutes of regular daily use may aid recovery from respiratory illnesses such as asthma, colds and flu’s. It is also great for sinus problems, hayfever and other allergies. In addition to the wonderful health benefits this sturdy device will last for 5 years.
