Are there any side effects when using the salt pipe?

You will experience the need to expel the loosened mucus from your chest but don’t fret, this is a good thing. The mucus and phlegm that has built up in your lungs over time, which is certainly impairing your breathing, is being broken down by the Halite salt and now is the time to cough it up and get rid of it.

At what age can a child start to use the salt pipe?

It is recommended that a child can use the salt pipe at 14 years old. The most important thing is to teach the child to inhale through the mouth and exhale through the nose.

Why do we exhale through our nose?

When you are using the salt pipe you have to inhale through the mouth, and exhale through the nose. This is very important because this is the only way that the salt crystal mixture can reach the upper respiratory tract (maxillary sinus) and that’s how it cleans the whole breathing system. Take care to breathe normally, gently and not too deeply.

Do I need to change the salt in the salt pipe?

No. The salt which we supply with our inhalers is approximately 200 million years old, so there are certainly no worries of it having a best before date! It is the purest Halite salt from the Himalayas. We provide you with approximately 150 grams of salt and with regular use this will last you in excess of 5 years.

If my symptoms improve should I then stop using my salt pipe?

Definitely not……even if you feel like you can breathe more easily, you must continue to use your saltpipe as a long term management of your symptoms.
