Had purchased the Himalayan Salt Inhaler for my husband, who is afflicted with COPD, and who recently had to spend several days in a hospital with pneumonia. Besides other inhalers, he favors the Himalayan Salt Inhaler most -- and since he is so convinced of this unit, I purchased several more units for family and friends.

I enjoy using the inhaler. It has helped me to stop an annoying cough that I just couldn't kick otherwise. I keep it by my chair and use it for 5-10 minutes every evening while watching TV.

Since having neck surgery ten years ago, I've had a chronic choking cough as a result of being unable to swallow well and having post-nasal drip. Multiple visits to doctors and ENTs resulted in a diagnosis of "nothing we can do". Two months ago I ordered the Himalayan Salt Inhaler with mediocre expectations. Much to my surprise and delight the very first day I used it I was able to go to sleep without choking, and was even able to sleep through the night. The results over the last 2 months have been steadily improving, and I now rarely cough. I would seriously recommend this product to anyone with respiratory issues involving sinuses. I'm immensely grateful for the relief it's given me. Many thanks, Isabella!!

Got my salt inhaler about the time I came down with a nasty cold. the type where your lungs start to even hurt. After using the inhaler for just a few days the cold seem to diminish and my lungs clear up as well. Really love this inhaler. What a cool thing to have when a salt mine is not close by.

I have winter congestion, maybe some kind of indoor allergy. The Himalayan salt inhaler, with just a few minutes of occasional use, loosens congestion, allowing me to blow my nose easily. Now I'm not stuffy and sniffling so annoying all the time!
Submitted on Mar 15, 2014
I've been wanting to try this for awhile, used it 3 weeks or so now. I have mild COPD with occasional mild wheezing and am hoping this helps to neutralize it. I noticed a clarity to my nasal passages right away even though I wasn't stuffed up. I'm using it about 20 min daily so far. I expect to see more improvement over time given the general mildness of my symptoms. Note: The inhaler itself is ceramic and somewhat heavy to hold. The top broke off when it was knocked over still in the box but I was able to glue it back on and continue to use it.

Salt therapy has been my savior. First after nasal surgery constant post nasal drip caused constant coughing. After years of that I found salt therapy -halo therapy- and now barely cough at all. Losing my salt therapy clinic but I ordered this inhaler and can now keep my therapy going. I also bought one for my husband and my partner!

I haven't noticed any benefits as of yet but it has only been a couple of weeks. It is not unpleasant and is easy to use. I kind of like the 'salty' flavor to the air I'm breathing. I have asthma and before getting this have had a couple of pretty bad colds so far this winter. I'm hopeful and will continue use of the inhaler.

This product is simply wonderful. It seems to alleviate a sinus headache upon contact, without the mess of sprays or the drying out of salt sprays. When I inhale it for a couple of minutes sitting relaxed the air becomes cold and or nose runs a little almost as if you were out in a lovely cool mountain breeze.

This product seems to do pretty well - My cough has not reappeared and my blood pressure is about normal when I remember to use the inhaler. I cannot tell it is working when inhaling because there is usually no salty taste at all. I do shake it between inhales. However, it seems to be working anyway.

I am amazed at how well that the salt inhaler has worked for me. After being plagued with a horrible cough that lingered for months after a bad winter for my asthma, I was embarrassed to go anywhere with such a cough. Three days after I started using the inhaler it started working. No more prescription inhalers are necessary. What a relief.

So far, I love this little device. It's a light sage green, lightweight in my hand, and very smooth to the touch, so I like holding it. I have asthma cough variant, so I wanted to try it for that. As the directions in the catalogue say, it did make things worse for a week, but then I noticed a distinct improvement and will keep using it. Both my Naturopath and acupuncturist approved the use. My own personal failing is that once something gets a little better, I quit doing whatever made it better so I am learning how often and how much I need to use this to maintain relief and maybe eliminate this asthma.

I am so VERY pleased with the Himalayan Salt inhaler!. From the first time I used it, it solved my runny nose. I can now sleep in bed on my side without my nostril clogging up. This problem would wake me up and not give me a good night sleep. This had been bothering me for years. Now, I can have a great night of uninterrupted sleep!. Glad I heard about the inhaler and even more glad I decided to give it a try. The inhaler is very finely crafted and I'm so happy with it!

I bought this to get away from the regular inhaler for asthma. So far is seems to work fine. It doesn't give you any jitters as the other one does. I haven't had to use the other at all yet. Maybe I won't have to. This one has to be more healthy for me.

My salt inhaler arrived very shortly after I placed my order and I was excited to begin its use. It's so easy, very pleasant actually with the deeper breathing, and I found it very relaxing. I've used it every day for 30 minutes without fail. Unfortunately, I have seen no difference in my allergic sinus congestion or my persistent cough in the three weeks since I've been using the inhaler. I will try it for another couple of weeks, but will return the product if I don't realize any benefit.

I find this ceramic container with salt is very helpful for congestion in my chest and quiets some of my allergy symptoms. I can actually feel the reaction in my bronchi. It works!
Submitted on Dec 29, 2012
I like this idea of breathing salt into your lungs. I hope this small amount helps enough. I can't tell just yet. But it sure gets me to take time to do some deep breathing. Like all these kinds of things, sometimes preventative never shows cause you'll never know cause you are doing something about it and never get the bad symptoms you might get if you didn't do any preventative. Your service and the item itself is really great and easy to use. Thanks for carrying such great things.

This was an interesting discovery for me. I can feel it working, within one minute of starting to use this inhaler. It's really nice to have clear nasal passages and sinuses without having to run salt water through them that was such a messy, and sometimes unpleasant, experience. It's somewhat expensive, at first glance, but once you've tried it, you can see its value.

I had been around some mildew long enough to start feeling it in my lungs, which didn't take long. Just used the inhaler one time, and could feel the difference. Kept on using it, and in a few days, my lungs felt fine. It is good to know that I have it as a really good back-up to fumes and dust, and especially the mildew. I use it mainly before bed, and will keep on using it.

I have only just begun to use the salt inhaler but have already noticed an improvement in my breathing. I had a lung infection which left me with mild asthma and I feel certain continued use of the inhaler will improve my condition. Using it for 15 minutes relaxes me and the deep breathing of the Himalayan salt relaxes my bronchial tubes and I breathe much easier and feel less chest tightness. Very hopeful and pleased with this purchase.

I am always looking for ways to improve my health. The Himalayan Salt Inhaler has cut my use of my Ventolin Albuterol Inhaler in half--or more. I'm hopeful that it will continue to improve my breathing. I usually needed 6 inhalations a day of the albuterol to get through a 24 hour period. Now I am down to 2 or 3 inhalations and it's sometimes only one. The Himalayan Salt Inhaler has really done wonders for me. It is an excellent product.

I have personally been using this inhaler for over 3 years. I replace the salts once a year, even though they say you can use them longer. I once suffered incredibly painful sinus infections, lasting up to 6 weeks, twice a year. I am now on year three of zero sinus infections. I use it almost daily for 10 minutes, just before bedtime. I just purchased another one for my son who suffers serious seasonal allergies. I know it will be great for him too. A life saver and no more medications that make me sleepy.

I am a singer in Sweet Adelines and this was recommended to me by one of our instructors. Since I have been using it, my lung capacity has definitely increased and from what I understand, it can only get better. I use it when I am watching the evening news and it is very easy and simple to do. If you are a singer, I recommend it but don't expect "instant" results. The effects take time. I have been using it for about 1 month and have noticed the difference but it was not instantaneous.

I bought this as a gift for my father who has many sinus issues. He has a neti pot, but doesn't use it often because of the water. Since I am a huge fan of using only pink Himalayan salt for flavoring my food, I thought I would have him try this. He has had a lot of success with this. He keeps it by his computer so he remembers to use it every day and no longer wakes up with tons of mucus in the morning! Success!

I was not sure what to expect from the salt inhaler, but I find that it is very effective. I live in a larger urban area with lots of air pollution. If I use the inhaler regularly, my lungs are clear, and I don't have morning hacking and snorting which were the symptoms that caused me to purchase it originally. After about four months of use, I think it is wonderful. It is also much easier to deal with while traveling than a water based nasal cleanser.

I wanted to share an amazing story about my 84-year-old mother. About a year ago, she was diagnosed w/COPD and emphysema and "sentenced" to oxygen 24/7. She did not like being tethered to plastic tubing and believes in the body's ability to heal itself. We did some research and found the Himalayan Salt Inhaler. She measures her O2 saturation level via a pulseoximeter and it always raises after the salt treatment. Your product combined w/yogic breathing has allowed her to get off oxygen during the day and only use it at night. It's like a miracle.

I suffered with a sinus infection for 4 months that no amount of oral antibiotics or painful antibiotic nasal rinses could end. I was constantly blowing my nose, coughing, spitting and by evening, my voice was hoarse. I'm a singer and a life coach. My voice is very important to me. When I discovered the Himalayan Salt Inhaler, it seemed so simple - and low-tech. No added water, nothing to plug in. And yet, in the first 10 minutes of breathing in the salt air, I could feel it beginning to dry up my infection. I returned to my doctor 5 days later - COMPLETELY FREE of the infection! And it has never returned.
That was last November, and since then, I use it every morning for 10 minutes before getting out of bed. What a pleasant way to wake up! Three times it has nipped a cold in the bud. And once it healed a sore throat that was beginning. Now my voice is clear for speaking and in addition to singing more clearly, the deep breathing has increased my lung power. I tell everyone I know about it, and often give one to friends for their birthdays! Everyone who has used it has been healed and has thanked me. I wish I'd had it when I stopped smoking 20 years ago. It would have made it much easier! Thank you for discovering it, and making it available. I am SO grateful.

My mom was bugging me to try the salt pipe for a while, as I've suffered from increased asthma/ respiratory ailments since moving to Los Angeles 8 years ago. I have to admit -- I was skeptical, and it seemed a bit too hippy-dippy for it to really be all that effective. However, she finally purchased one for me after my Advair had ceased to help anymore, and my coughing fits were getting worse and more frequent.
All I can say is WOW. I noticed a HUGE improvement within a few days of using it. I had all this gunk come up from my lungs -- you do cough up a bit of congestion, but better out than in, right -- and the coughing went away as well. I was surprised at how effective this was -- I let it lapse for a week, and my coughing rebounded -- started back on it and the coughing went away.
My Advair ran out the same time I started the salt pipe, and I haven't had to refill the prescription since. I'm glad I've found a replacement- the Advair isn't cheap, and even though this seems like it'd be a pain to use the pipe for 10-15 minutes a day, you just use it while watching TV or on the Internet, and it goes by without you even noticing it.
The only thing is to watch out that you don't breathe out through your mouth. You can get the salt wet that way, which makes it less effective.
I would HIGHLY recommend this to anybody suffering from respiratory problems from air pollution/ asthma, etc...
