COPD sufferers

Has anyone heard about the Salt Caves? saltcave.co.uk/

I have been going for two and a half years. My COPD Nurse cannot believe what a difference it has made. Since going my readings have stayed the same or improved. I also have a salt pipe (Amazon ) and have just bought Salin Plus therapy device. ( bought mine from Australia, it was cheaper than UK!). salinplus.com

I would definitely recommend the salt treatments. X

Hi Caz I am glad this is working for you. Just move to the seaside like me and you will get loads of free salt in the air :) x

Hi Caz, yes I've heard the salt caves are beneficial to lung conditions.

I live by the beach & I find the salty sea air good for my lungs.

Keep well 🌹

Hi James

Sessions are £35 per hour with one session free. There are always deals on Groupon etc. I buy packages. Just bought 30 sessions for £300 (£10 a session). Well worth it. Think you may be able to pay up. Works well with pipe. Oh also packages have no expiry date....Christmas present maybe? Take care.

I just found a 'salt candle'...less expensive, has three little places to put votive candles, but I thought that maybe I should find some natural beeswax ones because something burning seems counter-productive....anyone out there tried these?? It's supposedly one of the Himalayan ones.

I was looking at those but they are candle holders and im not sure if they would work the same as the lamps because they dont heat up ....also from what ive read your meant to keep that lamps on as long as possible, constantly if your in the house ......but i could be wrong im new to these things

Yeah, I'm wondering about keeping a flame going for long periods too. My hubby and I read every evening for a few hours and I tried just lighting them on the table between us...surprised to feel that they do warm up a bit. Who knows, I'm into trying anything.

I'm researching the 'salt-caves' though...sounds interesting.
