The salt mines of Wieliczka in Poland, Hallen in Austria, Praid in Romania or the Dead Sea have been visited by an incredible number of people because of the belief that inhalation of the salt brine vapor can bring relief from respiratory problems, asthma, nasal catarrh, sinusitis, breathlessness, bronchitis, pharyngitis, tonsillitis, night coughing, rhinitis, irritation, coughing, hay fever and allergies. Based on this, the Compact Breathe Easy Salt Pipe Salt Inhaler was developed to replicate the effect. It has been noted that workers in salt mines never got lung disease and clinical trials involving the inhaler have shown that it can cause an improvement in 85% of cases of mild to moderate asthma, 75% of cases of severe asthma and 97% of cases of chronic bronchitis. The salt therapy is believed to restore normal mucus movement and helps clear blockages in the bronchi and bronchioles. The Inhaler, through daily use, claims to help people with asthma, hay fever, allergy or those who smoke or snore. It also claims to help relieve the symptoms associated with colds, flu and infections as well as reduce the damage caused by air pollution, dust, smog, fog and second hand smoke.
