The Original Himalayan Crystal Salt Inhaler can provide overwhelming benefits to someone that is suffering from COPD or emphysema. The salt inhaler uses Himalayan crystal salts to create a cleaning effect in the lungs and help remove the toxins and build up allowing the lungs to heal.

    The Himalayan Crystal Salt Inhaler

    Original Himalayan Crystal Salt has 84 minerals and trace elements and is the only salt that is used in the preparation of Sole. Sole is a highly concentrated (26% salt) solution of water and salt, liquid ionic minerals, which provides proven natural benefits for a number of conditions such as, eczema, psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, sinus conditions, herpes, acne, neurodermatitis, athletes foot, warts, insect bites, bronchitis, osteoporosis, and more.

    The Salt-Air Inhaler (Salt Pipe™) is a convenient, drug-free and non-invasive device for taking advantage of the benefits of salt-air therapy without having to find an underground salt cave. Halotherapy (Halo=Salt in Greek), and Speleotherapy (Speleos=Cave), are well known therapies in Europe. Salt inhalation was first recommended by Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, who applied the age-old method of inhaling the steam from boiling saltwater.

    My Personal Experience Using The Salt Inhaler

    First, I have to say that I in no way am recommending or advising anyone to discontinue medications that they have been prescribed. Every person is different and what works for one person will work differently in another. With that said, I was diagnosed with COPD in 2005. From that time on, I spent a great deal of time and money going to the doctor and getting tests run, prescriptions filled and being sick. From the time that I was diagnosed until two years later in 2007, I was given numerous rounds of antibiotics and steroids for bronchial infection after bronchial infection. I was given various types of inhalers and breathing treatments to prevent further infections. I was taking three different medications daily and at least once a month I would get an infection that would require the antibiotics and steroids and often a couple of days in the hospital.

    At this time, breathing was difficult, fatigue was overwhelming and the pain in my lungs was unbearable much of the time. I became unable to work and quickly filed for disability, which I was denied after a year of waiting. I was forty years old and when my lung function was tested for the disability hearing, I was told I had only 16% lung function, the lungs of a 99 year old (that was as high as their test would go) and that I needed a lung transplant. I spent most of my time in bed and my four children were learning to live without me in their lives.

    Eventually, I lost my insurance and could no longer afford to go to the doctor. I ran out of all my medications and my doctor would not refill my prescriptions without me first coming in and having blood work run again. A new doctor would have been even more expensive. I sat back to wait for the next infection that was sure to come and assumed that the only choice that I would have would be to go to the emergency room if it got too bad.

    Then I found the Himalayan Salt Inhaler that claimed that it would clean the junk out of my lungs. I was skeptical but felt it couldn’t hurt anything and if it was a waste of time and money, it would still have been much less money wasted than if I had gone to yet another doctor’s appointment and had more blood tests and chest x-rays. So, I ordered the inhaler. When I received the inhaler the instructions said to use the inhaler for 15-20 minutes per day for the best results so I immediately began to use it. I made it about five minutes the first day I tried it. I thought there is no way I am going to sit here breathing into this thing for 20 minutes when it seems to be a scam. It is just this ceramic thing with some holes in the bottom and if you shake it, you can hear the Himalayan salt shaking around in there. I thought I had totally wasted my money. Until I woke up the next morning to find that my chest was not nearly as tight as it normally was, I was easily coughing and could literally feel the stuff loosening and breaking up in my chest when I coughed.

    Less than one year later, I was still on no medications without any further occurrences of bronchitis but needed to have another pulmonary lung function test for disability. At that time, the test showed I had 58% lung function and it is now up to 75% lung function. I am fully functional again and no longer need disability. I spend my time living my life and enjoying my children and for 15-20 minutes everyday, I take the time I need for me to use my salt inhaler and enjoy some quiet time alone just breathing.
