Breathe easy, with a little help from Himalayan crystal salt. This salt inhaler is the simple, natural and drug-free way to treat allergies, sinusitis and respiratory problems. Halotherapy (salt therapy) is a time-old natural healing practice; inhaling the steam made by boiled salt water, to clear the respiratory system. Himalayan salt releases negative ions, which help to cleanse bacteria and allergens; the salt also has anti-inflammatory properties and works to moisturise dry mucous membranes.
1.Tested/Proven: 
The effects of the mineral salt inhaler have been proven in both Clinical Studies and from numerous testimonials.2.Asthma Prevention/Elimination: 
One of many immediate results of the salt pipe is the significant improvement in Forced Expiratory Volume in which, during the first second, mucus thins out, thus making it easier to expectorate. Ease of expectoration combined with salt’s organic quality as an anti-histamine and anti-inflammatory, can give asthmatics and others a much-needed reduction or complete break from their drug-related inhalers and medications.3.Sound Sleep: 
Night suffocation and coughing is dramatically reduced or eradicated completely.4.Comforting: 
Gives ease of depth to breathing.5.Non-invasive: 
Drug-free means less or no more pills to stomach for many.6.Natural: 
Works like a charm with no side effects!7.Convenient: 
Easy to use, care for, store and travel with.8.Detox Device: 
Calms & cleanses the respiratory cells so it’s good for general maintenance too!9.Longevity: 
Lasts up to 5 years using approximately 15-25 minutes per day.

10.Economical: 
Possibly no more expensive meds cluttering your cabinet.

What a Salt Inhaler relieves and treats:  

Application to the Lungs/Respiratory Tract:

  • Allergic AsthmaHimalayan Salt Inhaler
  • Bronchial Asthma
  • Night Coughing
  • Breathlessness
  • Wheezing
  • Acute and Chronic Bronchitis
  • Whooping Cough
  • Pleurisy (inflammation of the lung lining)
  • Cystic Fibrosis
  • Infectious Respiratory Diseases

Inhalation from the salt inhaler produces microscopic particles, invisible to the human eye, that deposit onto every surface of the lungs, including the bronchi, bronchioles, alveoli (air sacs) and pleural (lining). In turn, these penetrating salt particles kill microbes which lead to a reduction of inflammation and enhance cilia mobility in the bronchi, facilitating the elimination of phlegm and foreign allergens and rendering much needed respiratory relief. Performing as a “mucokinetic” (mucus mobilizer), the micro salt particles restore the normal transport of mucus and unclog blockage in the bronchi and bronchioles. The inhaled salt acts as an absorbent, or solvent to the edema (excess fluid causing tissue to swell) from the mucosa lining the airway passages and has natural, non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory properties; offering organic treatment to the respiratory tract. Chronic conditions such as asthma are diminished as a result of the widening of the airway passages and the relief of bronchospasm through facilitation of bronchial secretions.

Application to COPD/Smoker’s Cough:

  • COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, i.e. “Smoker’s Cough”)

Expectorant qualities of crystal salt facilitate the mobility of residual tar build up.

Application to the Ears:

  • Ear Infection (Otitis Media)

Oedema (excess fluid causing tissue to swell) of the Eustachian tube mucosa, causing obstruction and otitis media is reduced, leading to widening of the airway passages, better drainage of the inflammatory secretions and improved aeration behind the tympanic membrane (ear drum).

Application to Virus, Bacteria, Inflammation & Allergic Reaction in the Nose and Sinuses:

  • Allergic Rhinopathy/Rhinitis (Hay Fever)
  • Sinusitis (inflammation of the sinus cavities located in the forehead)
  • Nasal Catarrh (inflammation of the nose lining)
  • Cold and Flu (any of several viruses and/or bacterium especially affecting the respiratory system)

Crystal salt therapy opens the nasal passages of stuffy nose and improves sinus drainage. Salt is a purifying agent and kills germs which can, in turn, lead to lessened symptoms and faster recovery of colds and flu, also giving relief from hay fever.

Application to the Oropharynx and Soft Palate:

  • Pharyngitis (sore throat)
  • Tonsillitis (inflamed tonsils)
  • Snoring and Sleep Disorder

The tiny, micro salt crystal particles reduce the oropharyngeal oedema (excess fluid causing tissue to swell around the throat area), which is often the case with snoring resulting in an improvement, a diminishing or a cessation of snoring altogether.


How to Use a Salt Inhaler:

First, fill the inner cavity with some coarse Himalayan Salt Crystals by gently removing the plug on the underside of the device and carefully pouring in at least a tablespoon of salt crystals. Replace the plug, and the device is ready to use. Simply place your mouth around the mouthpiece at the top of the Salt Inhaler and inhale normally. 
When exhaling, either keep the Salt Inhaler by your mouth and exhale through your nose, or briefly remove the Salt Inhaler from your mouth, exhale through your mouth. Breathe deeply through the salt inhaler for 5-10 minutes. A salty taste may be experienced at first, but this will lessen with use as the salt crystals vaporise within the Salt Inhaler.
