I am a bit skeptical on the benefits of this salt inhaler; however, it's worth a try. The reason why is that I've read that it benefitted those who were physically in big caves containing this salt, so I'm unsure how this little device will benefit. Therefore, I can't say yet if it has any benefit at this time which is why my rating.
Use it every day.
After seeing the Himalayan Salt Inhaler on the Dr. Oz show I thought it looked like a good idea. It is a good easy to use health aide and I use the Inhaler every day.
It really works!
I can't add anything that hasn't already been said. I just wanted to reiterate that this really does work. I had a severe case of bronchitis that resulted in uncontrollable asthma. I was on a rescue inhaler and Symbicort. I decided to try a salt crystal inhaler after hearing about it on Dr. Oz. I started out using it 25 minutes a day about six weeks ago. I am now doing 10 minutes a day when I remember to do so and I haven't used either prescription inhaler for over a month. WORTH EVERY PENNY!
Provides great sinus relief
This product along with the neti pot has provided me relief from all my sinus and allergy problems. Used to have to take both Flonase and Zyrtec daily to stay on top of my sinus and allergy problems. This product has enabled me to stop taking the Flonase completely and now I only have to take Zyrtec a couple of times a month. Have recommended this product to several of my friends.
Pretty cool device. Only problem is getting the plug off to refill it. Its on pretty good and run the risk of damaging it if you slip.
Pleasantly surprised, it works
After hearing Dr. Oz talk about the himalayan salt inhaler I decided it couldn't hurt to try it. After heart surgery my lungs were left weakened and I wheeze without being able to breath deeply. Been using the inhaler since Nov. it is now Jan and I am wheezing much less and can breath easier.
It isn't a cure-all but anything that encourages deeper breathing is a help. It is good to have salt rather than chemicals to breath into your lungs.
It's proably just the effort to take deep breaths that we need to do which is non related to the salt crystals.
I watched Dr. Oz and took their recommendation to try the salt inhaler. Of course; how could it hurt right? Well, I think the effort of inhaling deeply is the reason this treatment works vs the actual salt dust entering the nasal passages. Deep breathing expands the lungs and creates a greater space for an oxygen exchange over the alveoli in the base of the lungs. If you are oxygen dependent I would encourage you to try this treatment as it would enhance the oxygen exchange therefore allowing you to breath with greater ease.
who the hell has time to due this for 10 mins a day like it says to. its in the trash. maybe help someone with more sinus problems. not a fan
