Salt therapies, which include gargling with salt water, neti pots and salt caves (speleotherapy), have been used for thousands of years in both traditional and modern medical practices.
Speleotherapy, also known as cave therapy, was developed in the mid-1800s after Polish salt miners were found to have a lower incidence of pulmonary disease.
Halotherapy, a more recent development of the concept, is the use of a salt room made entirely of Himalayan Crystal Salt to recreate the microclimate of the caves, for therapeutic use.
More recently a New England Journal of Medicine study in 2006 found that inhaling salt-infused vapor improved breathing for 24 patients with cystic fibrosis.
And in another small study, in the European Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, subjects with asthma reported breathing easier after several weeks of regular halotherapy (salt) treatments.
So whether you have a serious condition that impacts your lung health, bronchial tract or your ability to breath.*
Or you have a cold or other infection, are an ex or current smoker, have allergies, live in a moldy apartment or house, or regularly flying on a plane with recycled air.*
Creating a salt environment is a safe, natural way to support a healthy bronchial tract by reducing your vulnerability to bacteria, fungus, viruses and molds as well as reducing the congestion in your lungs by thinning and reducing the amount of mucus.
The popularity of this therapy has resulted in new salt spas with salt caves popping up everywhere from Florida to Minnesota, LA and New York with 10-20, one-hour sessions costing between a few hundred and a few thousand dollars.
But, what if there are no caves or spas close by?
The Original Himalayan Crystal Salt Inhaler brings the cave to you.
This portable alternative to salt caves or rooms is a dry, ceramic inhaler, with a salt chamber inside. As you breathe in through your mouth, the air moves gently across the salt. Microscopic salt particles are absorbed through the moisture in the air, which flows into your respiratory system, delivering beneficial effects.
- Handcrafted in the USA with a stringent Quality Control Process to ensure safety – nearly all other inhalers are mass produced in China or Pakistan.
- We use a BPA free rubber stopper and lead free decals
- Our inhaler comes pre-filled with Coarse Granulated Original Himalayan Crystal Salt, that lasts for 18 - 24 months. Click here to learn about the differences between Original Himalayan Crystal Salt and other Himalayan or pink salts.
- Refillable – the rubber stopped under the inhaler means you can have the same inhaler for life and simply refill every 18 - 24 months.
Directions for use:
Use daily for 10-20 minutes when you wake and before bed.
Neti pots, from Ayurvedic medicine, have become popular among natural health practitioners and consumers over the past 5 years.
These ceramic pots are designed to flush out your nasal passages and are often go-to products for congestion and sinus infection, whether fungal, viral or bacterial.
Neti pots specifically use a saline (salt) solution.
This is because a saline solution will help:
1. Thin and reduce mucus build-up*
2. Act as an anti-microbial, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal*
In addition, a neti pot saline solution may help improve cilial function.*
Cilia are the hair-like structures that line your lungs, throat and nose. They must work together to move allergens, pathogens, excess mucus and fluid out.
IMPORTANT: Please, never use tap water in your neti pot! Always use sterile boiled water or purified bottled water.
