We all know
about the great health
benefits of Himalayan salt
, especially when used with food.
Now, there is a new way of getting more of its “healing energy”
into our bodies. Using a Himalayan
Salt Inhaler
offers an easy, drug-free way to conveniently get
many of the multiple benefits of salt-air therapy. The following
article will discuss Himalayan salt inhaler therapy and the health
benefits associated with its use.

What is
Salt Therapy?

Human beings
have been using salt for therapeutic use for thousands of years.
Anyone who has spent a day at the ocean intuitively knows that salt-filled
air is good for them. Just ask our good friend, the ancient physician
Hippocrates (the father of modern medicine), who used to steam salt
to purify the air and the lungs.

In Europe,
the ancient Greeks used what they called Halotherapy (Halo is the
word for salt in Greek), for respiratory ailments. Similarly, cave
rooms full of salty air have been considered therapeutic in countries
in Eastern Europe for hundreds of years.

In fact, salt
rooms that mimic these salty European caves are popping up in many
polluted cities such as New York and London. These salt-filled,
salt-lined rooms act as a powerful aid for people with bacterial
infections and other breathing-related conditions.

the ancient Ayurvedic and yogic cultures of India relied on salt
inhaling therapies to cleanse out the nose and throat areas. Today
the popular neti pot is an example of the extensive use of Himalayan
crystal salt
as an antibacterial and anti-allergen. Interestingly,
it has been found that workers in salt mines do not develop lung
diseases, but actually have extremely healthy respiratory health.

Modern salt
air therapy, including Himalayan
Crystal Salt Inhalers
, combine both the ancient and the modern
techniques. Himalayan salt crystals rest in a chamber inside the

As you breathe,
natural moisture in the air absorbs the salt particles into the
lungs, which can help with sinus problems, asthma, the common cold,
allergies, hay fever and congestion.

This therapeutic
approach offers absolutely no negative side effects, such as those
from commonly used steroid inhalers and other pharmaceutical drugs.

Health Benefits
of Salt Inhalers

Helps with
Asthma, Allergies & Sinus Ailments

Salt inhalation
therapy has been used for hundreds of years to boost our overall
respiratory strength and lung capacity. Documented studies from
the 1800’s found that breathing pure, ionized (salted) air in salt
mines could help prevent and reduce respiratory conditions. Other
respiratory issues that a Himalayan Salt Inhaler can help remedy
include nasal catarrh, breathlessness, hay fever, tonsillitis, bronchitis,
rhinitis, pharyngitis, and the general irritation cause by smoking
and air pollution.

Antimicrobial, Anti-Bacterial & Anti-Fungal Benefits

Himalayan salt
has been used for centuries as a cleansing agent, and a preventative
tool against germs, bacteria and fungus. In fact, it is a commonly
used holistic health practice to help individuals with asthma and
bacterial pneumonia, and may even work better than some of the commonly
prescribed antibiotics for these conditions.
