Salt Pipes For Treatment of Asthma, Bronchitis, Allergies, Hay fever And Even Snoring!

Bev Dunne

Quite often I write about the therapeutic benefits of using a salt pipe, especially when the cold and flu season is in full swing. I think it’s important to remind everyone of how effective these salt pipes can be. We receive such amazing feedback from customers using these salt pipes I thought it important to again remind our customers of the amazing benefits of salt pipes.

Saltpipes are thought to reduce inflammation and infection in our lungs. By regularly using a salt pipe, many have found they can breathe more easily. Saltpipes in fact may be helpful for the treatment and prevention of asthma, hay fever, bronchitis, allergies and other respiratory problems. We have received really positive feedback from many customers reporting they have found the salt pipes to be very beneficial for many of these ailments. It has helped them to breathe easier, alleviate shortness of breath plus they don’t sneeze and cough as much.

Even snorers have found some relief when using these salt pipes – in fact we had one customer come into our store after using the salt pipe for only a few days, raving about how well it had worked for his snoring. Salt pipes can be helpful to overcome wheeziness or persistent coughing when suffering from colds. They may also assist with treatment of shortness of breath and can be particularly helpful for smokers.

If you are a sports person, you may find a salt pipe may help you perform better by cleaning the lungs. Singers and musicians playing wind instruments such as the trumpet may achieve better results after using a salt pipe.

As I have written previously, salt therapy has been used for centuries. The ancient Greek physician Hippocrates believed inhaling steam from salt water was of benefit for lung and bronchial disorders. In the early 19th century, a Polish doctor discovered miners working in salt mines, despite difficult working conditions were in good health plus never suffered from respiratory problems. Then in WWII people regularly sheltering from bombing in a salt cave in Germany found their respiratory conditions were improved and even the healthier people found their immunity improved and they didn’t catch colds. Since these times Russia has undertaken much research into the treatment of asthma and bronchitis using salt therapy. This therapy is commonly used in Central and Eastern Europe.

It has been found, when suffering from respiratory problems, the smaller the particle, the better the health benefits. It appears between 5 and 10 microns are able to reach the windpipe and central bronchial area. Below 5 microns it reaches right into the lungs and between 0.1 – 2.5 microns it will penetrate deep into bronchi, bronchioles, and alveoli. It is understood these particles destroy pathogenic micro-organisms by dehydrating microbial cells, calming any inflammation, drying up mucous and enabling the body to eliminate mucous and bacteria from airways.

Obviously, we don’t have access to salt mines, however at Go Vita we do stock Saltpipes. The Saltpipe Inhaler is filled with the best quality salt crystals. Its salty therapeutic microclimate calms and cleanses the cells of the respiratory system. When using the Saltpipe the moisture of the passing air absorbs the micron sized particles of the salt that penetrates the respiratory system to induce natural self cleansing mechanisms that flush away the impurities from the surface of the cells, mechanically cleansing the passageways, helping to clear our nasal cavities, and helping to calm, heal and repair inflamed lungs and airways.

The Saltpipe is easy to use. Simply inhale through the mouthpiece and exhale out through the nose for 15-25 minutes once a day. When starting out you may experience some coughing and sneezing as the body clears itself of mucous from the lungs and sinus cavities, however these symptoms will subside once the saltpipe is used regularly. Note the Saltpipe is not to be used instead of prescribed medication to stop an asthma attack. A Saltpipe however may be beneficial when used regularly to reduce the frequency of asthma attacks.
