I recently learnt about the potentially beneficial effect of halotherapy: aerosol salt treatment of respiratory diseases.
The original, patented Cisca Saltpipe is a natural product, which aims to provide relief from breathing problems.
Invented in Hungary, The Cisca Saltpipe contains two ceramic filters containing selected Halite salt crystals formed in Hungarian caves around 20 million years ago. Its unique ergonomic design makes it both comfortable and convenient to use.
Originally developed specifically to aid breathing and address respiratory disorders, The Cisca Saltpipe has now also been found to improve overall well being. Its detoxifying properties help the absorption of oxygen and users have found a marked improvement in their general state of health simply by breathing through the pipe for just 15 minutes a day.
Air is purified as it is drawn over the salt crystals and the sensation is very much like taking in a deep breath of fresh air at the seaside. The salt micro-particles penetrate deep into the lungs unclogging blockages in the bronchi and bronchioles by restoring the normal transport of mucus. The particles also kill the microbes, which can lead to inflammation of lung tissue.
The amount of salt inhaled through the pipe is little more than a microgram, so whilst it offers real benefits to the respiratory system it has no adverse effects on blood pressure. The Cisca Saltpipe can be used to complement current medication without any side effects.
The use of salt treatment for respiratory illness such as asthma, allergy, and bronchitis is not well known in the UK.
Many people are worried about the use of salt as ‘salt’ as we know it in western society generally refers to Sodium Chloride, more commonly known as ‘table salt’. Sodium Chloride is a processed form of salt, which has had many beneficial minerals, removed leaving a modified substance, which is potentially harmful to the body particularly in relation to blood pressure.
The Cisca Saltpipe contains only the purest salt crystals.
I have only been using The Cisca Saltpipe since September 27, 2006 but I have already noticed that my airways seem clearer and I will be interested to learn how these improvements will develop.
