Panic Attacks: Portable Speleotherapy for Deeper Breathing

Panic attacks can mean that our breathing can be shallower and we can often get the sensation that we're unable to breath. The Cisca Easy Saltpipe® is a natural dry salt inhaler that provides a simple and natural way to help calm the breathing as it forces the suffer to breath more slowly and for longer and help you breath more easily.

Salt crystals have been used for decades in the treatment of respiratory disorders and help by cleansing the lungs allowing them to absorb more oxygen. Invented in Hungary, the Cisca Easy Saltpipe® harnesses the natural healing power of salt cave therapy (or Speleotherapy) in a handheld salt pipe.

The pipe is placed in the mouth and the user inhales as normal, exhaling through the nose. 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 similar to taking a deep breath of fresh sea air or visiting salt caves.

When using the salt pipe, the moisture of the air absorbs the microscopic particles of salt, allowing it to penetrate the entire respiratory tract. It opens the airways and helps you breathe more easily. After using the salt pipe regularly for about a week you should begin to notice that breathing becomes easier and deeper.

The Cisca Easy Saltpipe is small and lightweight and lasts for about 6 months.

The Cisca Easy Saltpipe® retails at £14.99 and is available from Holland & Barrett, or on 0191 3734 425.


About Cisca Easy Saltpipe®
The history of the Easy 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 Easy 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.
