Studies show how using a salt pipe regularly can help asthma

If you’re looking for a natural way to help ease asthma attacks for both children and adults, then the Cisca Saltpipe is an easy, cost-effective way to help. It’s a handy, porcelain dry salt inhaler that contains Halite salt crystals formed around 20 million years ago in Hungarian and Transylvanian salt caves, and studies show it works...

Studies have found that allergic and respiratory diseases such as asthma are an increasing problem. However respiratory disorders can be helped by regularly breathing through a salt pipe such as the Cisca Saltpipe.

A clinical trial by Dr. Valéria Burzuk showed that the Saltpipe helped patients suffering from Asthma Bronchiales, Chronic Bronchitis and COPD, “I was trying to choose patients whose illness was severe. The experiences of the patients show that the Saltpipe helps to dissolve sediments, helps in the process of discharge and in so doing, eases their breathing. As a doctor, I found the Saltpipe a very effective, complementary tool in the therapy of patients with respiratory illnesses.”

“As a summary, I would like to conclude the following: ...the breathing of the patient becomes more relieved. I also observed that the speed of the air-stream in the small bronchial tubes accelerated which results in easier breathing. I find the application of the Saltpipe indisputably beneficial.”
Using the Cisca Saltpipe is simple. Place the ceramic pipe in your mouth and inhale as normal, exhaling through your nose. After using the salt pipe regularly for about a week you should begin to notice that breathing becomes easier and deeper and any coughing caused by respiratory problems should lessen.

The salt crystals are placed between ceramic filters. Air is drawn through the filters and is purified as it's drawn over the natural salt crystals. This gives the user a sensation that is a lot like taking a deep breath of fresh sea air.

The moisture of the air absorbs the microscopic particles of salt, allowing it to penetrate the entire respiratory tract. It works by drawing excess fluid from the sinuses and cell lining, helping to cleanse the nasal passages and open the airways to help relieve the main cause of congestion and irritation. The salt has a thinning effect on mucus, helping you to clear it naturally and breathe more easily.

Dany comments, “I was told I had asthma over a year ago… I suffered for nearly a year, struggling to get my lungs open enough to be able to just walk quickly and there were times that I nearly gave in and went back to the chemical inhalers, then along came Cisca….. an advert on my facebook page changed my life, I bought the pipe and in a week I was able to breathe, in two weeks I could run and now after 1 month I can do anything and not get out of breath or gasp for breath when I have exerted myself, thank you Cisca Saltpipe you saved me from being having a very reduced quality of life. I recommend this pipe to anyone who has breathing difficulties.”

A fun elephant shaped children’s version, the Elipipe®, is a fun and friendly way to help children with asthma and respiratory problems. Normally, the Elipipe is recommended for children three and up. However there is no real age limit but children younger than three may struggle to use it.

The Cisca Saltpipe® and the Elipipe® both retail at £26.99, and the Easy Saltpipe® retails at £14.99. They are available from, on 0191 3734 425, selected Holland & Barrett and independent stores nationwide.


About Cisca Saltpipe®
The history of the Cisca Saltpipe can be traced back to 1843 when Polish physician Dr. Bochkowsky noticed salt miners didn't suffer from breathing issues or respiratory diseases. In his unique book he stated that respiratory diseases could be cured or treated naturally. This practice, called 'Speleotherapy', was used as the primary inspiration for the Cisca Saltpipe.

In 2002, two scientists from Budapest thought of a revolutionary way this treatment could be made accessible to more people in a portable and easy to use way. The Saltpipe (Sópipa as released in Hungary) was an instant success following medical trials and a Class IIa medical rating that proved its effectiveness as a treatment for breathing issues.

The benefits of Speleotherapy are associated with the unique salt caves/mines microclimate. Natural dry sodium chloride aerosol, formed by convective diffusion from salt walls, is the major curative factor of the salt caves/mines microclimate. Other factors, such as a comfortable temperature and humidity regime and the hypo-bacterial and allergen-free air environment saturated with aero ions, enhance the therapeutic effect.

Since Dr. F. Bochkowsky’s study, salt caves/mines are known to be used for therapeutic purposes in many countries, such as Austria (Solzbad-Salzeman), Romania (Praid), Poland (Wieliczka), Azerbaijan (Nakhichevan), Kirgizia (Chon-Tous), the Ukraine: Solotvino, (Carpathians), Artiomovsk (Donietsk region) and Russia, among others.
