It’s that time of year again, cold, icy and chilly. Normally I don’t mind the winter too much, but there are some people out there who really suffer at this time of year with their chests, be it a lingering cough, asthma, chest infection or COPD.
This year I discovered Himalayan Salt pipes! They are 100% natural, and a great non- drug option for helping your lungs to breathe easier. There are numerous benefits to these which can include helping with:
- Smokers cough
- Chest infections
What is a Himalayan Salt Pipe?
A Himalayan Salt pipe is a small ceramic pipe. It comes with a small bag of salt. You place about 1/3 bag salt into the pipe and fill it. Place the plug back on the bottom. Its now ready to use.
How do I use my Himalayan Salt Pipe?
To use the inhaler you place the spout into your mouth and exhale through your nose. Its recommended that you can either do this for 15 minutes or 3 times a day for 5 minutes a time. Whatever works best for you.
How Does my Himalayan Salt Pipe work?
The salt helps to dry up any mucous thats in or around the chest area. People have been using salts for thousands of years. In Europe halotherapy is very popular. The reason they found that salt works well, was that the salt miners never had any problems with their lungs or chest infections. Whereas people who worked above ground did. When the doctors did some reseearch it was found that it was because the miners were breathing in salt all day.
How do I look after my Himalayan Salt Pipe?
- Always make sure the pipe is completely dry before you fill it
- Never put it in the dishwasher
- Keep it in a dry environment, not the bathroom or kitchens
- When washing it out just use warm water
My nearly 6 year old woke up in the middle of the night a couple of weeks ago with a croup like cough. I passed him an inhaler and he used that to help him breathe. As he is only 5 he didn’t use it for the suggested time, but over the next few days he kept picking it up and using it to help him breathe.
