Benefits of a Himalayan Salt Inhaler to help Asthma, Allergies, Colds, COPD
Did you know that inhaling pink Himalayan salt through a ceramic Himalayan salt inhaler pipe has benefits that can help ease your asthma, allergies, coughs and other respiratory symptoms? It’s true. It’s not just wishful thinking or conjecture, famous trusted physicians such as Dr. Oz have praised the effects of Himalayan salt therapy.
The first accounts of salt therapy—or speleotherapy—come from ancient Roman documents offering accounts of salt miners whose respiratory function improved while mining salt mines.
And this isn’t just a one-time thing. Similar healing effects were noticed during the Medieval period. If you think asthma is awful today, imagine how bad it was back then in those this-is-totally-like-Game-of-Thrones-right-now kind of days. I’m sure having any relief was a gift from the heavens.
A polish doctor named Feliks Boczkowski was serving in the salt mines of Wieliczka in 1848, when he noticed that the miners suffered from no respiratory diseases. He began to document this undeniable effect, eventually getting to the point where a spa was created by his successor. Since then, salt spas have popped up in Germany and many Eastern European countries. Similarly, people hiding in salt caves during bombing strikes in World War II noticed their respiratory ailments like asthma greatly diminished by inhaling salt.
Okay, now all of us don’t have the time to fly to these European health spas with long names that have three or four consonants in a row, to spend a week in a cave to try and feel some asthma or respiratory relief. The good news is now you can have that same relief from So Well’s Pink Himalayan Salt Inhaler Pipe.
It’s a cute, little ceramic pipe that has a mouthpiece at the end and it has some salt in a reservoir in the pipe itself. All you have to do is breathe deeply through it for 15-20 minutes a day, in through your mouth, out through your nose. If your first response was like mine—15-20 minutes???—don’t worry! You can take it in 5 minute increments. Five minutes in the morning, five during a break throughout the day, five at night when you go to bed.
It’s actually really soothing to experience the benefits
There’s no water involved—trust me it’s drier than British television. The salt absorbs the moisture in your lungs, creating an environment where bacteria from a stubborn cough can’t replicate—like putting a frog in the desert. [Do not try this at home. No frogs were harmed in the creation of this blog.] Furthermore, when you breathe in Solay Wellness’s pink Himalayan salt, this ancient salt is shown to have antimicrobial properties that help fight that smoker’s cough.
If you suffer from asthma, your dependence on your inhaler can even decrease some because the of the benefits of Himalayan salt reduces the inflammation that makes you feel like you’re breathing through a yard-long straw, under water, in Denver, in the middle of summer. Why don’t you take some time from your busy day, run a So Well lavender bath, do a Cosmo quiz, and start getting over that stubborn cough or those chronic respiratory symptoms with our ceramic Himalayan salt inhaler available here.
