Salt Pipe for respiratory relief when suffering from Asthma
Do you suffer from asthma or allergies and find yourself dependent on medications? Do you search for an alternative, natural way to get some respiratory relief? If you answered yes to these questions, a salt pipe might be that alternative.
I write this hub because I have seen the effects of using a salt pipe. There are several members in my family who suffer from asthma and different kinds of allergies. The use of the salt pipe has improved their health by giving them relief from their respiratory problems. There has been a significant decrease in colds, infections and problems related to their asthma or allergies. Everyone, including kids and adults, can use the salt pipe.
Disclaimer: this is not a conventional medication and cannot replace anti-inflammatory medication. The salt pipe has shown to have an easing effect on the airways; however, you should always consult your doctor before using a salt pipe if you are diagnosed with some pulmonary disease or asthma.
A few hundred years ago, workers in salt caves suffered from less respiratory problems—like pulmonary disease and asthma—than other people. During the Second World War, salt caves where used as shelters in Germany. People spent time in these caves during the bombings. People with asthma experienced respiratory relief after staying in the shelters. This later led to the beginning of treatment in salt caves for asthma and other pulmonary diseases. Eventually, the caves were replaced by “salt rooms.”
Would you consider trying a salt pipe?
What is a salt room?
A salt room is an “artificial” salt cave. The air contains particles of dry salt. When the patient inspires, the air, rich with particles of salt, helps to clean up the airways.
The salt room treatments have shown to be effective for, among other things, the following:
- Pulmonary disease
- Difficulties in respiration
Treatment in salt rooms is an alternative to common medical treatment. It has shown great results on those who tried it. People might not be totally free from their common medications, but the need has definitely decreased.
Why using a salt pipe?
It has shown that inhaling salt in other forms besides salt rooms and salt mines have similar results. The market not only offers salt pipes, but also salt lamps. In this hub, I thought I would focus on salt pipes.
A salt pipe is a natural inhalator made of ceramic material or porcelain.
A salt pipe can be used, every day, which is a great benefit. Meanwhile, going to a salt room requires some scheduling and planning.
The use of a salt pipe provides respiratory relief for those who suffer from any difficulties in respiration. Almost everyone who has tried is noticing relief within a short period of time.
The use of a salt pipe is a great alternative to the ordinary medication and possibly decreases the need for it. The general condition is improving.
Himalayan Crystal Salt Inhaler
How does it work?
The salt pipe contains salt crystals from the Himalayas or some other salt cave. The salt crystals are several hundred million years old.
Once you buy an inhalator, you can use it for several years. The salt does not get old… Make sure you dry of the outside of the inhalator with a cloth to keep it clean. Be careful not to get any water inside though.
Using the inhalator is rather simple:
- Respire in the nozzle for 15-20 minutes every day.
- You can also take some breaths in it just a few minutes at a time and repeat during the day.
According to those who have tried it, the pipe usually takes effect within the first month.
Are there any side effects?
There are no known side effects from using the salt inhalator. However, mucus and phlegm might result from initial use. This can feel a bit unpleasant, but is not dangerous. It is necessary for the phlegm to be coughed up so it is excreted from the lungs.
Make sure you keep your salt inhalator in a dry environment. If the salt is exposed to a moist environment, it might not work properly anymore.
Weaknesses in proving the results
Some critics find the use of salt pipes to be completely pointless.
There actually is no scientific evidence to prove the beneficial effects of salt pipes, which may cause some reasonable doubt. I believe that there are no guaranties in life and that it does not hurt to try. You may risk losing your money invested; however, whatever works for you is worth your money spent.
I have not discovered or heard of anyone that is not satisfied with the results. I have researched the internet looking for people who have used a salt pipe. I also have questioned those I know have used the salt pipe. If you have additional information, please share it in the comments and I gladly edit this and add some information about it. The more information provided, the easier it is to share the entire picture and support people who consider try a salt pipe.
