The Latest Treatment for Snoring – Speleotherapy!

Snoring affects around a quarter of people on a regular basis, with twice as many men affected compared to women. It is most common in adults aged 40 to 60, but can affect all ages, including children [1]. The Cisca Saltpipe can help reduce some of the causes of snoring and help you to sleep better too.

The airwaves relax and narrow while we sleep; this affects the air pressure and causes the tissue to vibrate, which produces the sound of snoring. And if your airways are partially blocked, such as when you have a cold, this can also cause snoring to occur. Being overweight, smoking and drinking excessive amounts of alcohol can increase the chances of snoring.

The Cisca Saltpipe can reduce some of the causes of snoring as it will help widen the airway passages and clear mucus stuck inside the airways. Several customers have reported that it helps stop their snoring.

The Cisca Saltpipe is a handheld porcelain salt pipe that harnesses the natural healing power of Speleotherapy, or salt cave therapy. It is a simple and natural way to make a real difference to your health and can help maintain optimum respiratory function to help you breathe more easily. Salt crystals have been used for decades in the treatment of respiratory disorders and to help strengthen the immune system by cleansing the lungs allowing them to absorb more oxygen. Salt cave therapy has a thinning effect on mucus and opens the airways to relieve the main causes of congestion and irritation, and the main causes of snoring.

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 and reduce snoring. After using the salt pipe regularly for about a week you should begin to notice that breathing becomes easier and deeper.

The Cisca Saltpipe retails at £26.99, and the Cisca Easy Saltpipe retails at £14.99; they are available from selected Holland & Barrett and independent health stores and pharmacies, on 0191 3734 425 and from

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 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 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
