Himalayan salt has many great health benefits, especially when used with food. Using a Himalayan Salt Inhaler offers an easy, drug-free way to conveniently get many of the multiple benefits of salt-air therapy. This article will discuss Himalayan salt inhaler therapy and the health benefits associated with its use.
What is Salt Therapy?
Humans have been using salt for therapeutic uses for thousands of years. Anyone who has spent a day at the ocean knows that salt-filled air has something special about it. Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, 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. Cave rooms full of salty air have been considered therapeutic in countries in Eastern Europe for hundreds of years.
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 affected by 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 to combat harmful organisms. Interestingly, it has been found that workers in salt mines do not develop lung diseases, but actually have extremely healthy respiratory health.
Himalayan Crystal Salt Inhalers
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 inhaler.
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.
Unlike steroid inhalers and other pharmaceutical drugs, this therapeutic approach offers absolutely no negative side effects
9 Health Benefits of Salt Inhalers
1. Helps with Sinus Ailments
Salt inhalation therapy has been used to boost overall respiratory strength and lung capacity. Studies from the 1800’s found that breathing pure, ionized (salted) air in salt mines could help reduce respiratory problems and the general irritation cause by smoking and air pollution.
2. Supports Harmful Organism Cleansing
Himalayan salt has been used as a cleansing agent against harmful organisms. In fact, it is a commonly used holistic health practice to help individuals with respiratory difficulties, and may even work better than some of the commonly prescribed options for these conditions.
3. May Help Reduce Swelling and Redness
Crystal salt helps reduce redness and swelling, aiding in the body’s ability to fight off responses that lead to deterioration in the body over time.
4. Detoxifies Air
We breathe in a shocking amount of chemical pollutants, as well as smoke, dust, smog and pet dander. Our lungs are under constant stress from air pollution. Similarly, many smokers have found comfort in using the Himalayan salt inhaler, as it helps reduce withdrawal symptoms associated with quitting.
5. May Help Lower Blood Pressure
High in the mineral potassium, the Himalayan sea salt inhaler may also aid in stabilizing blood pressure.
6. Deepens Breath Capacity and Promotes Mental Calmness
Given its ability to increase the body’s natural ability to breathe deeply, a salt inhaler may provide a variety of psychological benefits. The ability to breathe easily promotes their body’s own natural relaxation response.
7. Aids in Promoting Sound Sleep
Using a Himalayan salt inhaler is believed to help people breathe better at night. It may also reduce or eliminate night coughs, snoring, and breath-related sleeping conditions.
8. May Help Reduce Mucus Build Up
Salt is a natural cleansing expectorant, and can aid in reducing excess mucous and general nose and throat stuffiness.
9. Moisturizes Dry Mucous Membranes
A crystal salt inhaler is great for taking aboard an airplane, as the salt hydrates the respiratory system while we travel.
I love the benefits of salt inhalers. My family uses them on a regular basis and we always get great results. I highly recommend every family purchase and use these. They are great to use during the flu season as well!
