Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a long-term lung disease that is primarily caused by tobacco smoking; air pollution; and exposure to harmful workplace dusts, fumes and chemicals. Over 5% of the population are affected by COPD, with most being over the age of 40. COPD is an umbrella term for conditions including emphysema, chronic bronchitis and chronic asthma . Unfortunately, COPD symptoms last for life, though there is treatment available. Salt therapy provides natural rehabilitation from COPD as a compliment or alternative to other methods such as steroid treatment.
A long history of bronchitis symptoms usually marks the beginning of COPD. A chronic cough is generally the first symptom, and many will simply call this “smoker’s cough”. As symptoms of COPD develop, coughing generally becomes more severe and frequent. Patients will usually experience breathlessness, wheezing and chest tightness. COPD symptoms generally worsen over the lifetime of the patient, though there is relief available.

Our customers have told us that salt therapy not only helps provide relief in the short term, but has helped reduce the occurrence of COPD symptoms.
Ongoing salt therapy can reduce the frequency of coughing in patients with salt particles that cleanse the lungs of mucus and phlegm. Salt aerosol relieves COPD symptoms by increasing the airway passages and restoring the normal transport of mucous secretion, helping to free blockages in the bronchi and bronchioles. This can offset the need for drugs, while reducing IgE levels (immune system oversensitivity).
The Salin Plus device also helps to reduce airborne particles that trigger discomfort in COPD sufferers. It filters the air as it is circulated through the pre-filter, which is designed to remove 98% of particles in the air. This results in cleaner air circulating inside the room where the Salin Plus device is used, while the inhalation of dry salt aerosol alleviates coughing, breathlessness and wheezing.
Using salt therapy each night, or even throughout the day, allows those with COPD to enjoy a higher quality of life, health and well-being.

“… I am 77 years old and have suffered with COPD and lung problems for twenty years . I was desperate to get off prescription drugs and to be able to clear my lungs and to breath properly. I have had my Salin Plus for 10 days and please believe me is that my sinuses have cleared and I can breathe deeply and clear my chest of mucus. I have plenty of energy and am able to walk without puffing and having to stop and rest.
Thank you, Barry of Salin Plus for this marvellous machine. It has been a life changing miracle.” -Irene
