Hi Friends:

Upon the advice of JimBob and Carol, I purchased a salt pipe, which is really a salt inhaler .

The salt grains are halite crystals from European salt caves , discovered because the salt mine workers did not get T.B. or the lung diseases that were prevalent many years ago .

I have had a battle with chest & sinus congestion and ear problems ( probably due to mycoplasma PN ) , but this truly is working !

JimBob said it helped him give up his inhaler
( asthma) and others here said it helped them .

I am no longer having chest soreness that feels like pleurisy .

I also think it is really worth trying for costochondritis , as I had it and now it is gone.

If you want more info : Google: "saltpipeco.uk"

It is a cisca salt pipe .

I am thankful for the folks here who take the time to share info about things that help them .

Ann, that's great!

My mom refused this, even though she had pneumonia last summer, which the antibiotic that her doc prescribed did not help.
She's still having problems with a cough.

I'm thinking of ordering one, paying for it, and having it sent to her.
(Heh, she'll kill me.)

I don't know if it would be an allergy fixer , but I do believe it will help prevent the secondary infections that allergies bring -
definitely . It thins mucous and seems to help my ears and sinuses not feel so plugged up .

It is great for bronchitis .

As far as allergies , I have had good success with Beconase during allergy season, but I was still struggling with constantly feeling I was fighting bronchial infection and having thick mucous . This has been a real blessing for me because I was living on mucinex 24/7 . I have not taken any mucinex in over a week , which is a miracle for me.

Annxyz,

Thanks for bringing this up and reminding me about my saltpipe. I purchased one and keep it in the drawer by my bed where I completely forget about it.

My allergies have been under control for years but I do have a morning cough that happens about 1 to 2 hrs after I wake up and lasts about 15 mins. During this time I cough up disgusting amounts of phlem. The only time I was free of this was several years ago in Midrid, Spain. This was before my latest onset of lyme. I never understood what was different about Spain.

I'm going to get that pipe out tonight and inhale, inhale, inhale.

Luvs
