Nowadays, the air that we breathe is more and more saturated with toxins, numerous impurities, dust and smog. That’s why our lungs are becoming more sensitive, so we are prone to colds, allergies, asthma, and bronchitis. To give a good detox to your lungs and the entire respiratory system, try inhaling Himalayan pink salt. Himalayan salt has the properties of a natural cleanser of mucus, bacteria and toxins from the respiratory tract, without any negative side effects.

It is the purest salt that exists on Earth because it is dug in places that are not exposed to modern pollution – at the foot of the Himalayas.

The magnificent properties of Himalayan salt

It is known that Himalayan salt contains more than 80 minerals and trace elements, the shape of which is similar to that of the human organism. The minerals are ionized, which means they are small enough to easily absorb your cells. The pink color, whose nuances can vary, indicates the presence of iron oxides.

Himalayan salt has antimicrobial, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. It strengthens the immune function and acts as an expectorant, which means that it stimulates the elimination of excess mucus from the lungs.

In the 18th century, in Poland, workers working in salt mines had an extremely healthy respiratory system precisely because they breathe air saturated with salt particles on a daily basis. Even if they were ill , the symptoms were mild and they would be cured very quickly.

The healing properties of dry inhalation of Himalayan salt

The ancient Greeks used halotherapy or salt therapy to alleviate various respiratory problems, such as cough, asthma, lung and sinus congestion. Today numerous spa and wellness treatments offer the use of salty rooms.

But you do not have to stay in such a room for the health of your lungs. You can also inhale this salt at home. You only need an inhaler in which you put grains of Himalayan pink salts.

How to use an inhaler:

Be sure to use a ceramic, not a plastic inhaler. Add some Himalayan salt to the inhaler and put the top of the inhaler into your mouth.

Breathe through your mouth and exhale through the nose. Breathe deeply so that salt is absorbed directly into the lungs and into the blood. Moisture from the air helps the absorption of salt particles into your lungs. Even if your mouth is dry, do not add water.

Everyone should have their own inhaler. Do not share it with others. You can inhale in the morning or in the evening before bedtime for a few minutes. As you inhale, you do not breathe whole granules of salt, but only its microscopic particles.
