Everyday we hear how global warming, increased pollution from cars and air traffic and poor air quality in general, are contributing to an increase in the number of people suffering from breathing difficulties, some of whom are resorting to inhalers and steroids for relief. Hay fever, asthma and other respiratory disorders are on the increase. There are over 4.1 million GP asthma consultations in England and
Wales each year1.
For centuries, salt has been used as a natural aid to easier breathing. Although much maligned in recent years we depend on salt, it’s not just a cooking ingredient, but a natural alternative medicine. What you don’t hear about is the traditional uses of natural salt and the exotic locations where it can be found, such as the Himalayas, the Dead Sea and the
Seas. Today, people with respiratory difficulties make pilgrimages to the less exotic sounding curative salt mines of Wieliczka in Poland, Hallein in Austria and Praid in
Romania to take in the salts, or they may visit coastal resorts to take in the high humidity, salty air to help ease their breathing problems.
Natural Self Cleansing
Salt-rich air carries micron sized particles of salt which, when inhaled, safely penetrate your respiratory system to achieve the beneficial effects. The sodium content of the active ingredient induces natural self-cleansing mechanisms that flush away the impurities from the surface of the cells and the salt particles also mechanically clean the air passages, calming and cleansing the cells ofthe respiratory system.
Not all of us can travel to the salt mines of
Europe or live near the coast, so The Saltpipe has been developed to bring the salt mines of Praid to your home.
TheSaltpipe is a handy porcelain pipe filled with natural Miocene halit salt crystals from Praid. Drawing air through the mouthpiece, it flows over the salt, collecting the salt particles, which then gently commence the cleansing process. At first you may experience some coughing or sneezing, as your system clears.
A few minutes of regular daily use can help bring easier breathing and cleanse the respiratory system, and can be beneficial for hay fever, asthma and other allergies, COPD, common colds and other infections. It can even be beneficial for snoring and problems caused by smoking.
Clinical tests† have proved the effectiveness of the Saltpipe:-
• Significant improvements in Forced Expiratory Volume during the first second.
• Mucus becomes thinner thus expectoration is easier.
• Night suffocation and coughing is reduced or prevented completely.
• Easier breathing.
The Saltpipe can be used by everybody. If you are on medication you can continue to take this while using the Saltpipe, although if you do have concerns you should consult your Doctor. For children, it is recommended for usage over 6 years. Children under 6 may use it if they can be shown how to correctly use the unit.
If you use the unit daily for 15 - 25 minutes it should last up to 5 years before needing to be replaced.
