Ernest Gaglione at Himalayan Salt Shop consistently comes up with great new products. Now there's a new one that I am excited about! It's called a salt inhaler and I've got one to give away to a lucky Shady Lady reader! Details in a moment...
But first let me tell you about the Salt Inhaler available at Himalayan Salt Shop.
How does it work? Himalayan salt crystals are positioned between the filters inside the refillable inhaler device. As you inhale through the mouthpiece, the moisture of the passing air absorbs microscopic salt particles which permeate through your respiratory system. The humidity in the air is sufficient to enrich the air with minute salt particles when the air passes the salt crystals. Hence a micro-climate of curative salt caves has been created.
Who can use salt air inhalers? Anyone can safely use salt air inhalers and enjoy the benefits from salt air inhalation therapy. Young children may also use salt air inhalers provided that they understand the concept of breathing in through the mouth and exhaling through the nose.
For use by one person only. DO NOT share between family members!
Do not use inhaler if chipped, cracked, or broken in any area.
Contains small parts - keep away from children!
Do not eat salt crystals!
This product has not been evaluated by the FDA and is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease or condition. If under medical supervision or pregnant, consult your physician before using this product.
Although that all sounds rather serious, it's just plain ol' common sense! The salt inhaler is safe enough for anyone to use as long as the proper precautions are taken.
I received a salt inhaler to try for myself. Setting it up couldn't be easier. The device is empty when you receive it and you just pour about 1/3 of the supplied Himalayan salt crystals into it. There's a silicone plug on the bottom which you simply remove to fill and replace when done. That's it. The salt air inhaler is now ready to use!
For optimal results, they recommend inhaling through the mouth and exhaling through the nose. Simply place the mouthpiece between your lips and draw air gently through your mouth, exhaling through your nose. Do not exhale back through the device.
They caution that you might experience some coughing or sneezing when the inhaling process begins, but I didn't experience this at all. In fact I could hardly tell it was doing anything, except that I got a very faint salty taste in my mouth when inhaling. So it's not like your sucking salt into your mouth, lungs, and nose! It's almost imperceptible, and designed to be that way. They recommend using the salt inhaler for 15-25 minutes per day, but this can be done in 5 minute sessions several times per day. You can use it all year round for best results.
As it happens, I am right this minute suffering from an upper respiratory ailment, so the timing on the salt inhaler review was perfect. Although I've only been using it for a couple of days now, I believe that I can sense a difference already. It may be too soon to be sure, but I'm going to continue to use the salt inhaler. What do I have to lose? :) And if it works at all, it's worth the time and effort.
So I wish I could give you a better review of this product, but I will need more time using it to be able to say definitively that it works...or not. In the meantime, Himalayan Salt Shop is offering a free salt inhaler to a lucky Shady Lady reader for you to try yourself or give as a thoughtful gift to a respiratory ailment sufferer you know.
The Salt Inhaler regularly sells for $34.99, but Himalayan Salt Shop is running a special and you can get it now for only $29.99! Salt crystal refills are also available at $9.95 for a 7.75 oz. box that will last a year (depending on use).
The salt inhaler is Dr. Oz recommended! That's good enough for me!
Right now you can get some great discounts! This season they have created two different coupons. You can choose which one to use based on your budget and your purchase. One of the coupons offers free shipping while the other offers a flat discount.
You choose which coupon best suits you:
