You may have heard of Salt Therapy in some form or another. Best known perhaps are the accounts of people flocking to bathe in the Dead Sea for their skin problems. But most of us do know of the benefits experienced by many closer to home.
Many people with breathing issues, such as Asthma, Emphysema and COPD find great benefit after a few days on the coast. That’s because the water vapour in the air suspends micro-sized salt particles, which you can taste and smell (the sea air). Convalescent homes were traditionally built beside the sea and in land-locked countries such as Hungary, people head below ground to the ‘Pryad’ salt-mines where the humidity again suspends the salt particles.
CE Approved (CE 2409)
The Saltpipe™ is a Class 1 medical device that uses the water vapour in your breath to collect salt particles from the base of the device. This is salt from the very Transylvanian Priad salt mines people flock to in eastern Europe. Its cleansing and expectorant effects are usually felt within a few days and can help not only the more chronic conditions already mentioned, but also snoring, ex-smokers and allergies involving the sinuses.
The Saltpipe™ costs £29.95 and will typically last between 3 and 5 years, depending upon usage. We have seen a few Salt Cave clinics opening recently but when you consider these cost from £25 to £35 per visit, you will see that £30 is money far better spent!
The Saltpipe is made from the highest quality porcelain, unlike some others. It's smooth and warm to the touch, and it's been painstakingly designed to feel comfortable in your hand. The Saltpipe is a handy inhaler which offers the benefit of portable salt therapy whenever you need it.
For those of you with a respiratory condition, the Saltpipe™ has NO CONTRAINDICATIONS, either with medicines or health conditions and does not raise blood pressure as the salt is inhaled rather than ingested.
Created by nature over millions of years, the salty atmosphere in the salt mines has been used for centuries to ease respiratory problems. The salty microclimate calms the cells lining the respiratory system and stimulates their natural cleaning mechanisms. Millions of people have experienced a form of 'salt therapy' here in Britain. Since the industrial revolution, a good dose of salty sea air has had a reputation for helping people with breathing problems. This is one of the reasons people used to flock to the seaside. At one time, Skegness was called 'Little Leicester'. Why? Because factory workers from the smog-filled city would rush there for their holidays.
The Saltpipe has been known to help everything from asthma and hay fever, to chronic snoring. It can also help if you suffer from shortness of breath, severe coughs and colds, or the effects of a smoky polluted environment.
What the Expert Says:
Allergy specialist, Dr Zoltan Ronai, tested the Saltpipe on 50 people over 2 weeks. Here's what she found:
Miocene salt crystals, composed of sodium chloride, magnesium, calcium. The active ingredients will last up to five years under normal usage.
How it Works: Salt Crystals are located between the porcelain filters in the body of the Salt pipe. When inhaling, the moisture from the air passing the salt crystals absorbs micron-sized salt particles with each intake of breath, bringing the beneficial effects of natural salt therapy.
