The Basic Principles of SaltAir Devices

SaltAir devices use ultrasonic vibration technology. This transforms saline solution into under 5-microns salt particles. The salt particles release into the air and travel into your respiratory system. SaltAir devices are not humidifiers! They do place an insignificant amount on humidity into the air. However, they do so much more than that.  SaltAir devices provide salt therapy at home with easiness and efficiency!

These breathable salt particles penetrate deep into the lungs and up into the alveoli. To add on, it clears mucus and kills bacteria. Therefore, this reduces inflammation and humidifies the whole respiratory tract. The salt aerosol has a very good effect in cleaning the indoor air as well.  This is due to the bactericide property of salt and the high concentration of negative ions that stick to the positively charged particles. For example, dust, bacteria, and viruses are all positive particles. By partaking in salt therapy, you’re ridding yourself of positive particles. It’s a good thing!

Declaration of Conformity: This device was manufactured and controlled by ISO 9001 Certified Management System and conform to all aspects of the agreed specification. SaltAir device complies with the essential requirements and provisions of Council Directive MDD 93/42/EEC for Medical Device Class I.

More About Salt Therapy by SaltAir

Rock salt for salt therapy

Note:

* The device has to be used only with our provided salt for the warranty to be in effect. Using a different kind of salt will void the warranty, as it can affect negatively the lifetime of the device!
We do not guarantee same health results using a different kind of salt!
**The device does not produce any environmental corrosion effects.

SaltAir devices come with a traveller electric adapter, instruction manual and a FREE 3-month supply of natural rock salt. The salt comes in a reusable waterproof key-chain tube. Thus, it’s portable and very hassle free.

The device is easy to use and does not require wearing a face mask or a mouthpiece.
You just plug it in and use it during daytime or overnight. SaltAir covers an area of maximum 45-50 cubic meters (about 1700 cubic foot). However, due to the forced air heating and air conditioning, we recommend placing the device close to your bed. Direct the gentle air stream towards you. This way, you can make full use of it while sleeping.

It’s important to note that the salinizer is designed for home use. It is NOT a humidifier! The humidity is minimal and the amount of salt aerosol is safe for home use. You won’t even notice the salt particles. They’re microscopic, majority under 2 microns. Thus, they’re not visible to the human eye. These salt particles are released into the indoor air for breathing.

SaltAir uses only Middle Miocene Era mineral halite salt crystals, unprocessed and untreated with chemicals (98% NaCl, 0.5% calcium chloride and magnesium, 0.2 iodine and other minerals in their natural form). We also developed a melange of salts to speed your recovery in acute or flare-ups. Please find them in our online store and read more about how salt therapy works!

SaltAir Reviews

The Ultrasonic Salinizer SaltAir is ideal for sufferers of any of the following problems (click below for SaltAir reviews / Testimonials from our customers). Home Salt Therapy is very effective in all breathing problems!

There are a few tips in using salt therapy!

  1. Firstly, exposure time in a chronic condition is very important. You will need at least 7-8 hours daily exposure. It is best to get these hours during your night sleep. For extra exposure during the day, consider adding our Salt Inhaler or SaltAir mini for office use.
  2. To maximize results, consider clearing your nasal passages with our Sinus Rinse system before bedtime. This way, the SaltAir aerosol will easily penetrate deep into the lungs. Thus, it will be able to reach the alveoli, which is the target area. This is because healthy alveoli leads to healthy oxygen exchange and better blood oxygenation.
  3. If you have mucus that is difficult to expel, consider using SaltAir  in conjunction with the  Aerobika device. Use SaltAir at night and Aerobika in the morning. The salt aerosol will loosen the mucus during the night sleep and Aerobika will help to easier expel it in the morning. Aerobika is easy to use – you just blow into it and it creates a vibration that travels deep into the chest and helps to eliminate the mucus.

Our over 15 years experience in the home salt therapy field has been brought us great satisfaction in helping people breathe better and live a better life.

The purchase of saline therapy SaltAir has been the best purchase ever. My husband was having to be hospitalized 3 to 4 times a year for pneumonia. The last time he was hospitalized was Feb 25, 2012 thru March 3, 2012. I researched on line and thank God I found your website. I ordered from you and my husband was skeptical at first. He said it wasn’t going to work. My husband has had pneumonia for 20 years without being able to cough up any phlegm. Within 2 hours of first night using the saline therapy, he coughed for 2 hours solid and was able to clear out all old stuff from his lungs that had been laying there for all those years. And since then, he is a firm believer. He had symptoms a couple of times, but with the treatment at home was able to avoid even the doctor’s office for antibiotics. My husband has MRSA so it is vital that the pneumonia stay under control. Thanks so much! Now my daughter-in-law is having chronic pneumonia and I suggested that she order one from you.

My family it’s been using SaltAir – Home Salt Therapy for more than a year now, with very good results. We have 2 young kids, 6 and 9 years old, and I noticed that they do not get sick anymore with cold/flu so often as they used to. When they got a cold it helped them for sure with the nasal congestion and to breathe easier and also shortened the duration of their recovery. My oldest one had developed allergies this spring – she found the salt therapy machine very beneficial and now she makes sure that the SaltAir machine is running in her room when she goes to bed in evening. We went in a vacation this summer and we did not bring the SaltAir with us and we all realized what a difference home salt therapy makes for her. She was really coughing a lot every day and had wheezing. As soon as we arrived back home, right after the first night of using the SaltAir, there was a huge difference. SaltAir helps her breathe easier, it’s reducing the amount of mucus in her lungs and also alleviates the sneezing and coughing. I would recommend SaltAir – Home Salt Therapy to anyone with young kids or who suffers from seasonal allergies or asthma.

Elizabeth Coats (4 Year Breast Cancer Survivor) - Marion, NC

I don’t normally write testimonials, but I felt I should this time regarding your Ultrasonic Salinizer. Here is a short version of my story. In 2007 I underwent Chemo and Radiation for Breast Cancer. The Radiation treatments scarred my lungs. I also developed Fibromyalgia/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome due to all the surgeries. Now, when I catch a minor cold, it usually turns into Pneumonia, a respiratory infection or another similar health problem. I also have a touch of asthma. A month ago, I caught a virus that was going around in our town and in many areas of Western North Carolina. My fever got higher and higher and my lungs were full of mucus. I was constantly coughing, couldn’t sleep due to coughing spells. Breathing was a chore and I was so tired and sore from the constant coughing. I was afraid that Pneumonia was setting in again and I did not want to go back to the hospital, so I sought out other treatments and found my way to your website. I ordered your Ultrasonic Salinizer, along with salt lamps and a salt inhaler. Within 24 hours the mucus began to loosen up so I could cough it out and within 2 days I felt so much better. I had more energy, could breath freely and did not wake up once during the night coughing! Thank you so much for a wonderful product! I just wish I had discovered it a couple of years ago!

Robert - Edmonton, Alberta

I have been a 50 cigarette per Day smoker for 30 years. One of my constant irritations since I began have been a chronic sore throat accompanied by lung pains. I purchased two of your Saline Plus Devices and the Ultrasonic Salinizer. Since I have started using your products my sore throat and pains have disappeared. I breath easier and much more deeply now. The results have been awesome. Thank you very much.

“My 4 year old daughter has had asthma since the age of 2. During the fall and winter seasons, she would be frequently on asthma puffers in order to control the inflammation in her respiratory tract. We purchased the Saline Plus Device in August 2009, and since then( 2.5 months), my daughter has only had to use the puffer on two occasions (2 puffs). I am extremely pleased that her use of medication has decreased considerably and we will continue using the Saline Plus Device. Seeing how it is helping my daughter’s breathing, I would highly recommend the Saline Plus Device to anyone who suffers from asthma.”

*(Used for Asthma in children) By the way, the short story is that during the winter of 2006, my son who was 2 and half, had 4 instances of flus, all with antibiotics. The final results was a child with asthma symptom in early March. He never had any respiratory problems before. And all the doctors could do is put him on steroid. I thought we should do better to better heal the cause. I ordered your salinizer. He never had to go back once for asthma, and is 98 % back to normal. I foresee that he will be 100 % very soon. I also experience the machine on myself, and it does have really good results.

*(Used for Asthma and Sinusitis) Thank you for letting me trial the Salin Device. I have found it beneficial to relieve sinus congestion and reduce asthmatic episodes. Before I used the device I took Arius daily, Nasonex 2 sprays twice a day, and Symbicort 2 puffs twice per day. I have used the Saline device for 3 months and I no longer take the Arius. I take Nasonex only once per day, and Symbicort once or twice a month. My husband has told me that I no longer snore as loud as I did before. Thank you again for this opportunity. I would recommend this device to people with breathing problems. Sincerely, Dr. Darien Lazowski-Fraher, PT, PhD The Downtown Clinic 115 – 1135 Adelaide Street North,

* (Used for Chronic Asthma and Sinusitis) (Chronic Asthma and Sinuses plus 2 operations for sinus polyp’s removal) As a chronic asthma sufferer of 50 years I want to express my thank you to Salin for your excellent product. I have however one big regret about Salin and that is, that I did not hear of your excellent product much sooner, simply because it really works extremly well for me. Personally I am pleased to report to you I have in fact been able to cut my asthma drugs by at least half. Sinus congestion relieved by 75%. In closing I want to tell you all, Salin certainly has my full vote. Thanks again.

P. McDowell - Toronto, Ontario

*(Used for Asthma and Chronic Bronchitis) Hello there, About two months ago I received as a gift from my parents Mr. & Mrs. McDowell (and ordered from you) The Salin Device air filter. I can’t tell you how much I believe I have benefited from this machine. I have suffered for many years with asthma and chronic bronchitis. Sinus infections have lead to lung infections which have been brought on by allergies. I now can sleep at night with clear and fresh air. I haven’t had a cold or a sinus infection since using this machine. Normally I would have had at least two occurrences by now. I cannot do without it, I sleep so much better and I believe it has definitely changed my all around health. Thank you so much.

(* Used for Allergy) Hello Just wanted to tell you about my experience with the Salt Pipe. I have suffered from chronic allergic “wet” chest for most of my life, but since I started using the Salt Pipe, I’m “drying” up. I use it every day to keep my symptoms under control. It works; it’s the only thing that’s ever worked, other than actually living by the sea. Thanks.

Hal Kostjuk - Ottawa, ON, Canada

*(Used for Lung condition) My doctor is still putting me through testing various puffers for my lung condition. At the moment I am using the salt pipe as a supplement to the puffers and have found it to be very beneficial. The pipe aids in clearing the air passages by phlegm expel and makes breathing much easier. In the future I intend to use the Salin Plus to assist my breathing problems.

Lorraine Kennedy - Oakville, Canada

I have used the Saltair device for less than a week and have found that the phlegm in the morning is really almost none existent and am not sure whether I took my ephedrine which used to be the # 1 thing I did each morning to open up my airways? I also have slept better despite the heat and I used to wake up with headaches which are non-existent? Urine, which was on occasion dark, well darker than I like it to be and I can flush my system out to repair but, I have noticed is very clear without doing anything? I knew it would work and at least benefit my condition for sure but I have to tell you I am more than just pleasantly surprised. I was going to wait until after seeing the specialists and I was also going to wait until I was ready to do a whole month detox/cleansing before using as I wanted to combine everything at once and just get aggressive with my lung condition but, decided to go ahead with just the Halosense to be able to see the results independent from anything else. The results are awesome, so soon! Even though I knew the healing powers of salt I guess somewhere in me resided the fact that it may be too good to be true to really treat what I have, but I am even more convinced than ever now! I feel a lot better and have more energy. Was also nice as I thought because of it’s size would be constantly filling but that’s not the case either, which is nice. I apologize for not keeping better records of its results but really never thought they’d come so quick. The first night I hadn’t slept much as I have it set up in my room but the next day noticed a difference but with the little time I had slept with it though maybe I was just having a better day? (some days were better than others) Took more notice the next day and thought well maybe it is the Halosense and by day three, knew it was…it is really amazing! Plus, I had done nothing else beside using it so know for sure it’s the Salinizer. I look forward to it’s continuing healing benefits and to see what more it does. It is working on more than just my lungs but really too soon to say what exactly and how as I am honestly taken a bit aback as it really did wonders so far in just days and haven’t paid full attention but am and will from now on, just surprised at how quickly it worked. I guess your stuck with me now as I will need to keep this going as I really love it! Thanks again…so appreciated, I can’t even put in words. Have a great day!

Georgeta Ciobanu - London, Ontario, Canada

*(Used for Bad snoring based on Allergy) We have been using the ‘SALIN’ medical device for the last two months and the results are excellent, absolutely amazing. Our night breathing improved 100%, we sleep much better during the night and the air in the bedroom is as fresh as if we had the windows open all night. Four years ago, my husband had a nose surgery because he was snoring so badly he almost choked in his sleep. Unfortunately, even though painful and uncomfortable, this drastic procedure proved to be only a temporary solution, as his snoring resumed a few months later, even worse than before. The doctors explained that he might have a bad case of allergies, aggravated in winter time by the dry and stuffy air in the bedroom. And they also warned us about the possible health damages caused by snoring. Their advice was to have a humidifier running all night in the bedroom. This solution did not resolve the problem, though. We heard about ‘SALIN’ from our friend and jumped right away on the opportunity, as we were desperate to find anything that might help. This device really worked miracles for my husband – he has now a smooth and even breathing and he no longer wakes up with headaches in the morning. When I had a cold – stuffy nose, watery eyes, cough, sneeze, etc. – it disappeared in two days, versus one-two weeks as it took before. ‘SALIN’ improved our life so much, we are thinking of getting another one to place on the other side of the bed to get even better air quality in our bedroom. We know that treatments with air enriched in salt particles have been used for hundreds of years to treat breathing diseases or problems. Those treatments are done in salt mines, they are lengthy, costly and hard to reach. ‘SALIN’ creates that kind of environment in our bedroom and we have access to a medical treatment that works miracles for us as we sleep.

*(Used for Nasal stuffiness) I have been using the saline device for approximately 6 months and I recommend it highly. I no longer suffer from nasal stuffiness which I previously experienced, and am now able to sleep more comfortably. In contrast to other devices which remove dust molecules from the air, the saline device actually puts tiny salt molecules into the air, which apparently create the beneficial effect. I highly recommend this device to anyone with nasal or bronchial congestion.

*(Used for sleep and relief from effects of pollution) From the first night that we used the Salin device we noticed the difference in our sleep. We are seniors and have difficulty sleeping when the air is heavy and polluted. The device allows us to sleep without wakening and, in the morning, we do not feel stuffy and groggy. We find we are sleeping more deeply. My husband, especially, notices his breathing is deeper and that he is very refreshed in the morning. The Salin is contributing positively to the quality of our life. We are recommending the Salin to our friends. Thank you.

* (Used for Chronic Asthma and Sinusitis) (Chronic Asthma and Sinuses plus 2 operations for sinus polyp’s removal) As a chronic asthma sufferer of 50 years I want to express my thank you to Salin for your excellent product. I have however one big regret about Salin and that is, that I did not hear of your excellent product much sooner, simply because it really works extremly well for me. Personally I am pleased to report to you I have in fact been able to cut my asthma drugs by at least half. Sinus congestion relieved by 75%. In closing I want to tell you all, Salin certainly has my full vote. Thanks again.

P. McDowell - Toronto, Ontario

*(Used for Asthma and Chronic Bronchitis) Hello there, About two months ago I received as a gift from my parents Mr. & Mrs. McDowell (and ordered from you) The Salin Device air filter. I can’t tell you how much I believe I have benefited from this machine. I have suffered for many years with asthma and chronic bronchitis. Sinus infections have lead to lung infections which have been brought on by allergies. I now can sleep at night with clear and fresh air. I haven’t had a cold or a sinus infection since using this machine. Normally I would have had at least two occurrences by now. I cannot do without it, I sleep so much better and I believe it has definitely changed my all around health. Thank you so much.

(* Used for Allergy) Hello Just wanted to tell you about my experience with the Salt Pipe. I have suffered from chronic allergic “wet” chest for most of my life, but since I started using the Salt Pipe, I’m “drying” up. I use it every day to keep my symptoms under control. It works; it’s the only thing that’s ever worked, other than actually living by the sea. Thanks.

Hal Kostjuk - Ottawa, ON, Canada

*(Used for Lung condition) My doctor is still putting me through testing various puffers for my lung condition. At the moment I am using the salt pipe as a supplement to the puffers and have found it to be very beneficial. The pipe aids in clearing the air passages by phlegm expel and makes breathing much easier. In the future I intend to use the Salin Plus to assist my breathing problems.

Joanne Cutting - Cambridge, Ontario

To whom it may concern, first thank you for such a great product. I have restrictive lung disease which is similar to CF. I accumulate phlegm and cannot expel, after a few nights of the salinizer Saltair I started to feel loosening in my lungs, after 2 weeks I felt so much better (and my house plants are thriving) lol Purchased it September 12 2014.

Patricia Szywacz - Toronto, Ontario

We bought our saline machine over a year ago and have been using it almost every night. My boyfriend has cystic fibrosis and he found that it helps him breath easier at night. Making his chest feel lighter and clears up some of the mucus. This is just one of those machines that is so simple yet so helpful. I do not suffer from any chronic disease, and I to enjoy the saline in the air, which makes my sleeping more clear. This is a quiet and small device that does not get in the way. Making a small difference every night that adds up to a much clearer sleep!

Catie Bautista Pratt

Hello Everyone, I just wanted to share that I purchased a Salinizer a few weeks ago specifically for my two children with Cystic Fibrosis. They sleep with it on each and every night and the difference is so amazing! The kids and their dad all came down with a flu/viral infection in this last week, and both of my little one’s with CF were over there flu/viral infection within 24 to 48 hours! That is COMPLETELY UNHEARD of in our household! Thank heavens for your sweet little powerful machine!! xoxo

Peter J. Farrell - Toronto, Canada

(* Used for Pulmonary Fibrosis) Dear Halosense, I came to your website via my Romanian born and educated dentist, who on a visit asked about my health and and when told of my affliction of Pulmonary Fibrosis she referred me to a salt therapy web site in Romania. Through further web browsing etc. I came upon your site and decided to invest in your Saline and Salt pipe devices. I fully realized and accepted from your web site info that noticeable relief would not be for about 3-4 weeks of treatment. But imagine my joy on awaking after my first night of having the saline device working in my bedroom. My morning routine of violent painful noisy coughing in order to expel the build up of phlegm that had developed overnight was not needed, my breathing was normal and I really felt as if I had slept soundly. My wife said that I had not snored once the whole evening! I was reticent about singing the Hallelluia chorus so soon so I have waited about four weeks before writing to you, and I am still amazed at the relief that I still feel most mornings. The phlegm still must be expelled o course but it is usually later than immediately upon arising and is less painful and violent. I can’t tell you enough about how pleased I am at the results I have experienced. I also use the salt pipe as a extra during the day usually when I am driving when I can devote about 15-20 minutes to its use and find it so very helpful too.

Dr. Crenguta Frinc (Paediatric Doctor Specialist in Pneumophtisiology)

*(Recommended by Pediatric Doctor Specialist in Pneumophtisiology) I have studied a lot of 22 patients with respiratory and pulmonary diseases to whom I’ve recommended the Salin device. Five of them have asthma, 18 have respiratory problems of asthmatic type after infections with sincitial respiratory virus, and 15 of them are children. I have analyzed 228 questionnaires from patients after 2 months of use and the results were just spectaculars. Patients with cord surgery, pulmonary neoplasm, one with leukemia, 2 ischemic cardiopathy and diabetic, pulmonary fibrosis, 2 cifoze with chronic respiratory insufficiency, 2 with mucoviscidosis (cystic fibrosis) with bronchiectasis, and all of them with favourable results after using the Salin device in an easier breathing, reducing cough – 2 patients with convulsive cough -, cleaning the airway passages and diminishing snoring. Salin device is a real help in respiratory pathology.

Professor Dr. Caius Zamora (Primary Doctor of Pneumology)

*(Recommended by Pneumologist Doctor) I use Salin device for myself and I’m recommending the product also to my patients because I’ve noticed the beneficial effects: a more fresh indoor air, a reduction of bad odours, a fluidization and clearing of respiratory tract secretions, a less frequency of the dyspnea attacks and a diminishing of the intensity of asthma attacks, higher body immunity to respiratory infections. Salin device is a real help in all respiratory diseases because using a natural therapy (Speleotherapy / Halotherapy) offers a real improvement in health state, without any unwanted side effects. Trustfully, I’m recommending salt therapy to all my patients.

Cindy Dodd - Gadsden, AL

The purchase of saline therapy Saltair has been the best purchase ever. My husband was having to be hospitalized 3 to 4 times a year for pneumonia. The last time he was hospitalized was Feb 25, 2012 thru March 3, 2012. I researched on line and thank God I found your website. I ordered from you and my husband was skeptical at first. He said it wasn’t going to work. My husband has had pneumonia for 20 years without being able to cough up any phlegm. Within 2 hours of first night using the saline therapy, he coughed for 2 hours solid and was able to clear out all old stuff from his lungs that had been laying there for all those years. And since then, he is a firm believer. He had symptoms a couple of times, but with the treatment at home was able to avoid even the doctor’s office for antibiotics. My husband has MRSA so it is vital that the pneumonia stay under control. Thanks so much! Now my daughter-in-law is having chronic pneumonia and I suggested that she order one from you.

Elizabeth Coats (4 Year Breast Cancer Survivor) - Marion, NC

I don’t normally write testimonials, but I felt I should this time regarding your Ultrasonic Salinizer. Here is a short version of my story. In 2007 I underwent Chemo and Radiation for Breast Cancer. The Radiation treatments scarred my lungs. I also developed Fibromyalgia/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome due to all the surgeries. Now, when I catch a minor cold, it usually turns into Pneumonia, a respiratory infection or another similar health problem. I also have a touch of asthma. A month ago, I caught a virus that was going around in our town and in many areas of Western North Carolina. My fever got higher and higher and my lungs were full of mucus. I was constantly coughing, couldn’t sleep due to coughing spells. Breathing was a chore and I was so tired and sore from the constant coughing. I was afraid that Pneumonia was setting in again and I did not want to go back to the hospital, so I sought out other treatments and found my way to your website. I ordered your Ultrasonic Salinizer, along with salt lamps and a salt inhaler. Within 24 hours the mucus began to loosen up so I could cough it out and within 2 days I felt so much better. I had more energy, could breath freely and did not wake up once during the night coughing! Thank you so much for a wonderful product! I just wish I had discovered it a couple of years ago!

Sandy K. - Portage, Indiana, USA

Thank you for this great product.* I have used it faithfully for the past 2 months and I feel that it has helped my lungs. It is small and doesn’t take up a lot of room on my nightstand. It also is not overpowering in the amount of moisture it emits so I can even use it in the summer when it is more humid. * – the customers refers to the Ultrasonic Air Salinizer – Saltair

Stefan - Kelowna, BC

In kind attention of Halosense Inc., Canada About 2 years ago we purchased an Ultrasonic Salinizer for my son (3 years old) who got frequent colds, and subsequently a lot of ear pain. We were desperate after trying medications, seeing doctors, but we were unable to obtain a permanent solution to my son’s ear pain. We bought the Ultrasonic Salinizer, and it was one of the best bets we have made on his health. We used it whenever my son got a cold, and in several days he was always back to normal. The ear infections disappeared completely after 2-3 months of usage of the Ultrasonic Salinizer. We now manage to get over colds without medication, just with the Ultrasonic Salinizer, several hot teas and ZERO ear pain. If I am not wrong, my son did not get cold for about a year… My mom, who is 70 years old, also started to use our Ultrasonic Salinizer as a final try to get rid of her throat pain, stuffy morning nose, and difficult breath during the winter season. She tried a lot of expensive medications, infusions, but nothing worked so far to last. She started to use the Ultrasonic Salinizer and she was amazed that in about a month, her throat cleared, she breaths normally, and the stuffy morning nose is almost gone. She asked me to buy her an Ultrasonic Salinizer to use it as a preventive aid… Congratulations, the Ultrasonic Salinizer makes wonders! Really!

*(Used for Asthma and Sinusitis) Thank you for letting me trial the Salin Device. I have found it beneficial to relieve sinus congestion and reduce asthmatic episodes. Before I used the device I took Arius daily, Nasonex 2 sprays twice a day, and Symbicort 2 puffs twice per day. I have used the Saline device for 3 months and I no longer take the Arius. I take Nasonex only once per day, and Symbicort once or twice a month. My husband has told me that I no longer snore as loud as I did before. Thank you again for this opportunity. I would recommend this device to people with breathing problems. Sincerely, Dr. Darien Lazowski-Fraher, PT, PhD The Downtown Clinic 115 – 1135 Adelaide Street North,

*(Used for Chronic Sinusitis) I’ve had chronic sinus problems and the saline therapy helped me tremendously! I leave it on overnight just next to my bedside and feel a huge improvement the next morning. Also, it works wonders whenever my kids are sick with colds or flu. Having it in their room for a few hours, makes them breath easier, clearing their symptoms. Love its sleek, modern design, it’s easy to use, maintain and runs very smoothly. I always recommend it to my friends and coworkers who have kids as it has dual benefits: as a cool humidifier, as well as negative ions generator much needed for your overall health and it has no side effects, even on babies. I totally believe in this product!!!!

*(Used for stuffiness and Sinusitis) I use both the Salin Plus and the Salt Pipe regularly and have noticed a great improvement in breathing, increased energy and I sleep comfortably when the Salin Plus is in effect. I love using both products and would strongly recommend them to anyone who suffers from respiratory problems. Thanks for your suggestion. I really like both products.

Dr. Zabos Daniela (Primary Otolaryngologist)

*(Recommended by Otolaryngologist Doctor) My opinion, as 7 months user and Otolaryngologist (ORL) doctor, is that Salin is completely integrated in the algorithm of every prevention or rehabilitation program of respiratory infections with high potential of becoming chronic. I’m running a study using Salin device on 25 patients with various respiratory diseases and the good preliminary conclusions are giving me the motivation to continue my clinic and para clinic research. All my patients feel already an improvement in symptoms, an easier breathing, and a decrease of the acute attacks even in the highly epidemic period. In the treatment, beside Salin, I’ve used remedies such vitamins and minerals, anti inflammatory, mucolytics and vaccines but no antibiotics and anti allergic drugs. In my study, the 25 patients are children between 1 and 18 years old, with otic pathology, rhino-sinusitis infection-allergic, bronchitis and chronic amygdalate. The examination is monthly, by questioning and ORL exam and para clinic exam as well (audioimpendantmetry, echosinusal, rhinosinusal x-ray, immunologic tests). Because I’m convinced about Salin’s beneficial effects in respiratory diseases, I’m offering all my support and I highly recommend it to all patients.

I bought this device around 45 days ago with the intention of having cleaner air to breath at nights. It was claimed that it also helps with the snoring but, I was skeptical until I started using the device. My wife is a mild snorer and I noticed that gradually her snoring reduced to the point that it almost completely disappeared. This device really works. Pretty amazing! To this day, I’m still amazed and check her every night and her snoring has not come back. She would also wake up in the morning with congested nose and all cleared up. We have the device by our bed and only turn it on at night. It’s almost noiseless and the noise from our street is louder than this device. When the device is on, there’s a small green light that shows the device is operating but we taped it to block the light at night. Not a big deal. I fill up the device only once a week. Cleaning up and maintaining the device is very easy. On top of the physical benefits, from an energetic perspective I also like to breath salt infused air since salt has been used for thousands of years in ancient traditions to cleanse the space energetically. Overall I love the device, it’s easy to use and very beneficial.

Update for those considering Natural Healing Methods. I have been using my SALTAIR for almost two months now and actually sleep for 7 hours straight… unheard of previous to using. I have been diagnosed with micro bacterium xenopi, a rare lung disease (only 1500 recorded cases in Canada since 1959) I have scarring on both top lungs and mid right lung, so basically percentage wise living on one lung…

*(Used for sleep and relief from effects of pollution) From the first night that we used the Salin device we noticed the difference in our sleep. We are seniors and have difficulty sleeping when the air is heavy and polluted. The device allows us to sleep without wakening and, in the morning, we do not feel stuffy and groggy. We find we are sleeping more deeply. My husband, especially, notices his breathing is deeper and that he is very refreshed in the morning. The Salin is contributing positively to the quality of our life. We are recommending the Salin to our friends. Thank you.

Georgeta Ciobanu - London, Ontario, Canada

*(Used for Bad snoring based on Allergy) We have been using the ‘SALIN’ medical device for the last two months and the results are excellent, absolutely amazing. Our night breathing improved 100%, we sleep much better during the night and the air in the bedroom is as fresh as if we had the windows open all night. Four years ago, my husband had a nose surgery because he was snoring so badly he almost choked in his sleep. Unfortunately, even though painful and uncomfortable, this drastic procedure proved to be only a temporary solution, as his snoring resumed a few months later, even worse than before. The doctors explained that he might have a bad case of allergies, aggravated in winter time by the dry and stuffy air in the bedroom. And they also warned us about the possible health damages caused by snoring. Their advice was to have a humidifier running all night in the bedroom. This solution did not resolve the problem, though. We heard about ‘SALIN’ from our friend and jumped right away on the opportunity, as we were desperate to find anything that might help. This device really worked miracles for my husband – he has now a smooth and even breathing and he no longer wakes up with headaches in the morning. When I had a cold – stuffy nose, watery eyes, cough, sneeze, etc. – it disappeared in two days, versus one-two weeks as it took before. ‘SALIN’ improved our life so much, we are thinking of getting another one to place on the other side of the bed to get even better air quality in our bedroom. We know that treatments with air enriched in salt particles have been used for hundreds of years to treat breathing diseases or problems. Those treatments are done in salt mines, they are lengthy, costly and hard to reach. ‘SALIN’ creates that kind of environment in our bedroom and we have access to a medical treatment that works miracles for us as we sleep.

Linda Ennis – Chicago, IL USA

*(Used for Nasal stuffiness) I have been using the saline device for approximately 6 months and I recommend it highly. I no longer suffer from nasal stuffiness which I previously experienced, and am now able to sleep more comfortably. In contrast to other devices which remove dust molecules from the air, the saline device actually puts tiny salt molecules into the air, which apparently create the beneficial effect. I highly recommend this device to anyone with nasal or bronchial congestio

Joshua Eady – Toronto, Canada

*(Used for stuffiness and Sinusitis) I use both the Salin Plus and the Salt Pipe regularly and have noticed a great improvement in breathing, increased energy and I sleep comfortably when the Salin Plus is in effect. I love using both products and would strongly recommend them to anyone who suffers from respiratory problems. Thanks for your suggestion. I really like both products.

Cindy Dodd - Gadsden, AL

The purchase of saline therapy Saltair has been the best purchase ever. My husband was having to be hospitalized 3 to 4 times a year for pneumonia. The last time he was hospitalized was Feb 25, 2012 thru March 3, 2012. I researched on line and thank God I found your website. I ordered from you and my husband was skeptical at first. He said it wasn’t going to work. My husband has had pneumonia for 20 years without being able to cough up any phlegm. Within 2 hours of first night using the saline therapy, he coughed for 2 hours solid and was able to clear out all old stuff from his lungs that had been laying there for all those years. And since then, he is a firm believer. He had symptoms a couple of times, but with the treatment at home was able to avoid even the doctor’s office for antibiotics. My husband has MRSA so it is vital that the pneumonia stay under control. Thanks so much! Now my daughter-in-law is having chronic pneumonia and I suggested that she order one from you.

Elizabeth Coats (4 Year Breast Cancer Survivor) - Marion, NC

I don’t normally write testimonials, but I felt I should this time regarding your Ultrasonic Salinizer. Here is a short version of my story. In 2007 I underwent Chemo and Radiation for Breast Cancer. The Radiation treatments scarred my lungs. I also developed Fibromyalgia/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome due to all the surgeries. Now, when I catch a minor cold, it usually turns into Pneumonia, a respiratory infection or another similar health problem. I also have a touch of asthma. A month ago, I caught a virus that was going around in our town and in many areas of Western North Carolina. My fever got higher and higher and my lungs were full of mucus. I was constantly coughing, couldn’t sleep due to coughing spells. Breathing was a chore and I was so tired and sore from the constant coughing. I was afraid that Pneumonia was setting in again and I did not want to go back to the hospital, so I sought out other treatments and found my way to your website. I ordered your Ultrasonic Salinizer, along with salt lamps and a salt inhaler. Within 24 hours the mucus began to loosen up so I could cough it out and within 2 days I felt so much better. I had more energy, could breath freely and did not wake up once during the night coughing! Thank you so much for a wonderful product! I just wish I had discovered it a couple of years ago!

Sandy K. - Portage, Indiana, USA

Thank you for this great product.* I have used it faithfully for the past 2 months and I feel that it has helped my lungs. It is small and doesn’t take up a lot of room on my nightstand. It also is not overpowering in the amount of moisture it emits so I can even use it in the summer when it is more humid. * – the customers refers to the Ultrasonic Air Salinizer – Saltair

Stefan - Kelowna, BC

In kind attention of Halosense Inc., Canada About 2 years ago we purchased an Ultrasonic Salinizer for my son (3 years old) who got frequent colds, and subsequently a lot of ear pain. We were desperate after trying medications, seeing doctors, but we were unable to obtain a permanent solution to my son’s ear pain. We bought the Ultrasonic Salinizer, and it was one of the best bets we have made on his health. We used it whenever my son got a cold, and in several days he was always back to normal. The ear infections disappeared completely after 2-3 months of usage of the Ultrasonic Salinizer. We now manage to get over colds without medication, just with the Ultrasonic Salinizer, several hot teas and ZERO ear pain. If I am not wrong, my son did not get cold for about a year… My mom, who is 70 years old, also started to use our Ultrasonic Salinizer as a final try to get rid of her throat pain, stuffy morning nose, and difficult breath during the winter season. She tried a lot of expensive medications, infusions, but nothing worked so far to last. She started to use the Ultrasonic Salinizer and she was amazed that in about a month, her throat cleared, she breaths normally, and the stuffy morning nose is almost gone. She asked me to buy her an Ultrasonic Salinizer to use it as a preventive aid… Congratulations, the Ultrasonic Salinizer makes wonders! Really!

Dr. Bobulet Aurelia (Primary Paediatric Doctor)

*(Recommended by Paediatric Doctor) Salin device clearly reduces the frequency of acute respiratory diseases. Personally I recommend this device for children and adults with respiratory problems.

Dr. Zabos Daniela (Primary Otolaryngologist)

*(Recommended by Otolaryngologist Doctor) My opinion, as 7 months user and Otolaryngologist (ORL) doctor, is that Salin is completely integrated in the algorithm of every prevention or rehabilitation program of respiratory infections with high potential of becoming chronic. I’m running a study using Salin device on 25 patients with various respiratory diseases and the good preliminary conclusions are giving me the motivation to continue my clinic and para clinic research. All my patients feel already an improvement in symptoms, an easier breathing, and a decrease of the acute attacks even in the highly epidemic period. In the treatment, beside Salin, I’ve used remedies such vitamins and minerals, anti inflammatory, mucolytics and vaccines but no antibiotics and anti allergic drugs. In my study, the 25 patients are children between 1 and 18 years old, with otic pathology, rhino-sinusitis infection-allergic, bronchitis and chronic amygdalate. The examination is monthly, by questioning and ORL exam and para clinic exam as well (audioimpendantmetry, echosinusal, rhinosinusal x-ray, immunologic tests). Because I’m convinced about Salin’s beneficial effects in respiratory diseases, I’m offering all my support and I highly recommend it to all patients.

SaltAir Salinizer Tips For Best Results

  • Use the SaltAir salinizer (salt therapy machine) every day, for at least 8 hours, preferably while sleeping.
  • In chronic respiratory conditions or where improvement is not seen in 1-2 weeks, extend salt therapy during daytime for as long as possible
  • In some cases, improvements may progress slowly, depending how the body reacts and the stage of the disease. One may only notice a difference after stopping treatment for 1-2 weeks. 
  • Read the Instruction Manual before using the SaltAir device! Start the saline solution at 2 cups of water and 1/4 tsp of rock salt.  Salt may be increased up to 1/2 tsp. No more than 1/2 tsp is necessary for therapeutic results! More salt will only shorten the device’s lifetime. The suggested quantity of salt will create a saline solution situated between normal saline and slightly hypertonic saline. The device performs best when filled with no more than 3 cups of saline solution.
  • Place the device on a perfectly level surface – a nightstand is recommended – and direct the gentle air stream towards user. You may want to use a protective plate underneath the salinizer. This may prevent accidental leakage.
  • Turn ON the device at bedtime and use the Timer to set it for night use (6 or 9 hours). Let the device empty before refill. It takes several nights to empty. At refill, pay close attention that no water gets on any electrical parts, buttons or inside the unit. Do not move the device when filled! 
  • For daytime use, it is recommended to have another salinizer set up in living room or office.
  • Calcareous deposits may occur on the ultrasonic cell due to the minerals found in the rock salt; use a solution made with water and double strength cleaning vinegar (3:1 ratio of vinegar to water) to clean. Use a small brush and rinse with water.
  • Saline solution is antibacterial, antiviral and anti-fungal and does not promote any growth. Usually, people suffering from Cystic Fibrosis / CF are concerned about bacteria. For this reason a UV light feature has been added. You can turn On the UV light – for about 2 hours – during use or when not in use, to treat the saline solution.
  • If you cough a lot, use our “Melange of Natural Rock Salts” until the cough subsides; afterwards use the rock salt. Find them in our Store.

Clinical Studies Supporting Salt Therapy

Purpose

Smoking is a self-destructive behavior that is known to induce remodeling of the lower airways, leading to squamous metaplasia, but little is known about its effects on the nose and paranasal sinuses. Nasal irrigations are often mentioned as measures for treating sinonasal inflammations. The purpose of our study was to compare the effects of nasal irrigations with sulfurous-arsenical-ferruginous thermal water or isotonic sodium chloride solution in smokers with nonallergic chronic rhinosinusitis, based on clinical and olfactory evidence.

Materials and methods

The present study was a prospective, randomized, double-blind study performed in a tertiary academic referral center. Seventy smokers with nonallergic chronic rhinitis were enrolled. Nasal endoscopy, rhinomanometry, nasal cytology, and odor threshold measurements were performed in subjects randomized to daily nasal irrigations with either thermal water or isotonic sodium chloride solution for 1 month.

Results

Immediately after the treatment, the thermal water irrigations revealed a positive pharmacologic action, judging from a tendency toward lower nasal resistances (P = .07) and larger numbers of ciliated cells in the patients treated (P = .003). Endoscopic findings in the thermal water group were still better than in the control group a further 2 months later (P = .03).

Conclusions

Our results indicate that nasal irrigations with thermal water had a good effect on endoscopic objective signs, nasal resistances, and epithelial trophism. Read more

Conclusions

Using Hypertonic Saline inhalations significantly shortens length of stay in hospital (LOS) and lowers admission rate (AR) in preschool children presenting with an acute wheezing episode to the emergency department. Read more

Halotherapy was applied for non-puncture treatment of 45 patients with acute purulent maxillary sinusitis. The response was evaluated by changes in clinico-immunological, cytological, x-ray and bacteriological parameters. Halotherapy was found effective in the treatment of acute purulent maxillary sinusitis without puncture.

Halotherapy was used for sanatorium rehabilitation in 29 patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases (chronic bronchitis and asthma). Significant positive effects of this method resulted in the improvement of the flow-volume parameters curve of lung function and in hypotensive effects on blood pressure. Halotherapy is recommended for use in patients suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases with hypertension or coronary heart disease. Read more

A decrease in the persistence characteristics of staphylococci under the influence of microclimate in a spelean pit has been demonstrated under experimental conditions. Clinical investigations have confirmed the capacity of speleotherapy to decrease the microbial contamination of the upper respiratory tract and to inhibit the persistence properties of staphylococcal microflora in children with respiratory allergosis, which seems to be the basis of the positive effect achieved by treatment with microclimate in a spelean pit. Read more

Speleotherapy was conducted in 216 children with bronchial asthma treated in conditions of salt mines situated near the town of Nakhichevan. The assessment of clinical, immunological and functional parameters showed that the best results had been achieved in atopic asthma running a light or moderate course. Speleotherapy courses noticeably diminished broncho-obstructive syndrome, improved pulmonary ventilation. The improvement proved stable in the majority of the patients. It is recommended to include speleotherapy in salt mines into combined rehabilitation treatment of pediatric asthmatics. Read more

Halotherapy proved to be a highly effective method in a complex sanatorium treatment of patients with chronic bronchitis. Its use promotes more rapid liquidation of clinical manifestations of disease, improves indices of vent function of lungs, especially those values that characterize bronchial conduction (volume of forced exhalations per second, index Tiffno), increases tolerance to physical load, normalizes indices of reduced immunity and leads to increasing the effectiveness of patient treatment in sanatorium. Read more

The results of this investigation suggest that both NaCl and Al2O3 microdermabrasion alter the epidermal barrier. These changes in epidermal barrier function may be responsible for the clinical improvement following microdermabrasion. Read more

After proper clinical and immunological examinations 112 children with atopic dermatitis underwent immunocorrective speleotherapy in a chamber with artificial microclimate created with the use of natrium chloride spraying. During the treatment positive trends were observed in the patients’ dermatological status and immune homeostasis. A complete 6-24-month response was reported in 58%, partial in 20%, no response in 6.9% of patients. The method is recommended for treatment of atopic dermatitis. Read more

This work elucidates the questions upon the development of a new drug-free method of a respiratory diseases treatment. Halotherapy (HT)–is mode of treatment in a controlled air medium which simulates a natural salt cave microclimate. The main curative factor is dry sodium chloride aerosol with particles of 2 to 5 mkm in size. Particles density (0.5-9 mg/m3) varies with the type of the disease. Other factors are comfortable temperature- humidity regime, the hypobacterial and allergen-free air environment saturated with aeroions. The effect of HT was evaluated in 124 patients (pts) with various types of respiratory diseases. The control group of 15 pts received placebo. HT course consisted of 10-20 daily procedures of 1 hour. HT resulted in improvements of clinical state in the most of patients. The positive dynamics of flow-volume loop parameters and decrease of bronchial resistance measured by bodyplethysmography were observed. The changes in control group parameters after HT were not statistically significant. The specificity of this method is the low concentration and gradual administration of dry sodium chloride aerosol. Data on healing mechanisms of a specific airdispersive environment of sodium chloride while while treatment the respiratory diseases are discussed.

The paper describes a new medical technique–halo-aerosol therapy, the main acting factor of which is dry highly dispersed aerosol of sodium chloride in natural concentration. Halo-aerosol therapy represents a new trend in aerosol medicine. It includes two methods: halotherapy and halo-inhalation. Biophysical and pathophysiological foundations of the new method, how it can be realized are outlined. Clinical reasons are provided for application of halo-aerosol therapy for prevention, treatment and rehabilitation of patients with respiratory diseases. Characteristics and differences of the two halo-aerosol therapy variants are analyses. Read more

Objective

To ascertain whether a daily nasal spray with physiological saline could prevent symptoms of common cold in a population of otherwise healthy adults.

Material and methods

This was study involving 10 weeks of daily use of a nasal saline spray and 10 weeks of only recording symptoms. Young adults eligible for military service at an army barrack in Boden, Sweden were invited to participate in the study and 108 healthy conscripts aged approximately 20 years agreed to do so. Data were recorded by the participants in a diary at home. In the diary the participants noted symptoms such as rhinitis, blocked nose, cough, fever and sore throat (pharyngeal pain). They also recorded inability to perform their duties due to the symptoms, and any medication or antibiotics necessitated by upper respiratory tract infection.

Results

A total of 69 subjects completed the 20-week diary period. For 60 of them, compliance during the spray period exceeded 60% and their data were used in the statistical calculations. During the spray period the number of days with nasal secretion and/or blocked nose (mean 6.4 days) was significantly (p=0.027) lower than that during the observation period (mean 11 days). Furthermore, the participants had a mean of 0.7 episodes of upper respiratory tract infection during the spray period, compared with 1.0 episodes during the observation period (p=0.05).

Conclusion

A daily nasal spray with saline can prevent nasal symptoms of common cold in a population of otherwise healthy adults. Read more

A study in 84 patients with dust-induced bronchitis receiving combined drug treatment, hyperbaric oxygenation, hypobarotherapy and artificial speleotherapy indicates that the first place by its efficacy is occupied by artificial speleotherapy resulting in an improvement of the functional indices of the cardiopulmonary system. The second place is occupied by hypobaric regimen. Hyperbaric oxygenation was of low efficacy. Read more

A study of 55 patients with bronchial asthma revealed a reduction of the relative number of T-lymphocytes and their IgA content. The changes were most pronounced in patients during the phase of unstable remission of the disease. Disorders of the T- and B-system of lymphocytes were associated with an increased number of cortisol-resistant lymphocytes. After a course of speleotherapy one could observe an increase of the number of T-lymphocytes and their functional activity, normalization of the number of B-lymphocytes, increase of the level of IgA, reduction of the IgM content and of the relative content of cortisol-resistant lymphocytes fraction. Read more

Speleotherapy, the use of the climate of caves, is an accepted but not widely known therapeutic measure in the treatment of chronic obstructive airway diseases. This study summarizes the therapeutic experiences of more than 4000 patients who were treated in a 10-year period in a hospital-cave complex in Tapolca,Hungary. A sharp and long-lasting clinical improvement and a significant recovery from airway obstruction could be observed in the overwhelming majority of patients. It is established that the microclimate of some caves can beneficially affect these disorders, but the cave should be considered as an optimal environment for complex respiratory rehabilitation. Read more

SaltAir – FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

SaltAir device is an ultrasonic salinizer that releases microscopic salt particles into the indoor air, for long time inhalation. The breathable salt particles, under 5 microns with the majority under 1 micron, are able to penetrate deep into your lung and clean, humidify, reduce inflammation and widen the entire airways. Natural rock salt has mucolytic (fluidizes the mucus), anti-inflammatory (absorbs inflammation from the mucosa lining the airways), anti-bacterial (kills bacteria) and hydrophilic properties (absorbs edema and humidifies the airways).

Absolutely no! The ultrasonic salinizer SaltAir is especially designed and calibrated to deliver a safe amount and specific size of microscopic salt particles. The device will not increase the humidity in the air. Attention: Never add salt in a regular humidifier, as some people may think can do! We guarantee you would not be happy with the results, and it is dangerous for respiratory sufferers! Read Salinizer tips for best results!

Both devices place microscopic salt particles, majority under 2 microns, into the indoor air, for breathing. While Salin is using dry salt filter, the ultrasonic salinizer SaltAir uses saline solution to create the salt aerosol. With SaltAir device, the quantity of salt particles generated every night, is constantly the same and can be easily adjusted and controlled by increasing the saline solution concentration. With a dry salt filter, as in Salin Plus, the quantity of salt particles decreases in time, with the maximum quantity in the first week and a filter replacement would be needed every 3-4 months, or sooner.

Here is a good article to compare different salt therapy avenues.

One device is adequate for the treatment of max. 45-50 cubic meters room (about 1700 cubic foot). However, it is recommended to use it close to your bed while sleeping and direct the gently air stream towards you. This was, you will breathe the salty air coming from the unit and does not really matter how large is your room.

The device comprises of two parts: the base and the lid. The base that is also the water tank, needs regular maintenance. Every 2-3 months gently clean the ultrasonic cell with a solution made from 3 parts of strong cleaning vinegar and 1 part of water. This will help to avoid calculary deposits due to the minerals found in the natural rock salt. At cleaning or refill, pay attention no saline solution gets over electrical parts or inside the unit (please read the Instructional Manual).

The water tank holds the saline solution that should be refilled and gently cleaned with tap water every 7-8 days. To clean the interior of the water tank from calcular deposits – let it soak in water with double strength cleaning vinegar (1 to 3 parts water); empty half and shake it well; you can add a little dish detergent as well.

No! The saline solution will not build any bacteria, fungi or mold due to the specific bactericide and fungicide properties of salt. However, we advise to clean the device as recommended in the instruction manual and change the saline solution every 7 days.

Cystic fibrosis sufferers have special concern about bacterial growth and in this case the cleaning process and refill with saline solution can be done more often, every 2-3 days. The water tank can be disinfected each time and let it soak in water with double strength cleaning vinegar (1 to 3 parts water) for about an hour.

The UV light is also known to inhibit germs and bacterial growth. Use it for couple hours during the functional hours or when the unit is off.

The device is almost noise free. You barely can hear that is working.

160 x 160 x 120 mm ( ~6.25 x 6.25 x 4.5 inches) and weights maximum 0.5 kg or 1.2 lb.

The dry sodium chloride (salt) aerosol has a considerable level of negatively charged particles and this is leading to a negative ionization of the air surrounding the salt ions. Also, the inner surfaces of airways have a slight positive charge. Negatively charged particles of salt aerosol move in the lumen of respiratory tract and settle more intensively compared to neutral particles. In addition, the negative charge increases aerosol stability.

No! The device can be a complementary or stand alone (alternative) treatment and does not interact with any classical treatment. The quantity of the salt aerosol is comparable with the ocean or seaside aerosol and will not affect a low-salt diet. The salt micro particles reach the epithelium surface of the respiratory system and are eliminated with the mucus.

Even if the majority of salt micro particles are under 2 micron, some filters as HEPA can remove the salt micro-particles from air. However, the device is recommended to be used close to your bed, during the night sleep, and direct the air to come towards you. This way you will still benefit from the salty air coming from the unit. You can also place the air cleaner on the other side of the room or on hallway.

Many people have noticed that they sleep better when using our SaltAir – Home Salt Therapy device. This is because the salt aerosol helps in cleaning and widening the airways. This promotes easier breathing and better blood oxygenation. Salt ions have been found to have good effects on the nervous system as well, promoting relaxation and deeper sleep.

Yes! Because of its general health and hygiene effects, the SaltAir device is recommended in all ages, from prevention to chronic respiratory problems. SaltAir can be used not only by people suffering from respiratory problems, but also by healthy people to increase their respiratory immunity.
SaltAir device affects the secretions flow of the respiratory passages and strengthens the vibrations of cilia, allowing the secretions to be removed quicker, clearing the respiratory passages. This promotes an easier and more comfortable breathing pattern. It also helps in clearing the nasal passages, reduces snoring and promotes a more relaxed and therapeutic sleep.

Depending on your condition, you may need one or both of them. In chronic respiratory diseases long-term exposure is necessary and the SaltAir device is highly recommended during the night sleep. Salt Pipe inhaler can be used during the day, while driving, or when outside of your home. They are complementary products and can be used together to maximize the exposure to salt therapy. In a chronic respiratory disease, someone may need at least 7-8 hours daily exposure, for lasting results. Read more about salt therapy avenues.

Many people have noticed that their partners do not snore as loud as before while using SaltAir – Home Salt Therapy device or they stop snoring. The salt ions reduce the inflammation in the nasal cavities and soft palate, often met in snoring. This helps in reducing and improving snoring. The salt aerosol also clears the mucus and unclog blockages that also cause snoring.

Yes! It is very safe! Fighting with flu and colds in infants and small children could give you a hard time. Babies under 4 months old can only breathe through their noses, so when they get congested it is very difficult to nurse them. Using a SaltAir device will help a stuffy nose infant breathe easier. The microscopic salt particles will help to open and clear the airways and the nasal cavities. This will get rid of stuffy nose and wakeups during the night. Regular use will also increase the respiratory immunity and you will notice that your child does not get a cold as often as before using salt therapy.

In infants and small children, ear infection can appear very often. To help them get better sooner and reduce the rate of recurrence, you should place their bed under an angle (head higher than feet) and use a SaltAir device. Place the salt machine close to the bed with the air stream towards them. The salt aerosol helps to reduce the inflammation in the Eustachian tube, and the airways. It also promotes better drainage of secretions & better aeration behind the tympanic membrane (drum). Salt is also bactericide and bacteriostatic and helps in killing bacteria and stop infection.

This depends on how your body reacts, your age and stage of your respiratory disease but you should notice soon the fresh and easy breathing air. At the same time, it is likely that there will be other noticeable and beneficial effects such as a reduction or cessation in the use of asthma inhalers. However, for any current medical problem you should consult with your doctor. Some people will notice results right after first night of use and others may need longer time, 2-3 or more weeks. In allergies may be required few months, especially if the allergen triggers are present. For many snorers it was noticed that they do not snore as loud as before, or they stopped snoring.

All natural therapies take time and perseverance, but with our home salt therapy many people got impressive results. The improvements may set slowly in some cases, especially in allergic conditions, and may notice a difference only when stopping the therapy for 1-2 weeks. For lasting results, especially in chronic conditions, continuous use is necessary. The longer exposure, the better results!

Sometimes, in the first period of use, it is possible an accentuation of coughing, especially with larger than recommended dose of salt in the saline solution. The fluidization of the secretion in the respiratory passages leads to quick elimination by coughing. If the coughing strokes give you too much trouble you can adjust the quantity of salt into the saline solution by making a new one using less salt.

REMEMBER that coughing, in this case, is not alarming, unless it is too intense. When you use our recommended quantity of salt is less probable to have intense coughing. You should then decrease the quantity of salt you use and slowly increase it as your body gets accustomed with the salt therapy.

Yes! Thinking now about pets, they are part of our life, day and night, including their problems. A dog or cat snoring problem or their asthma-allergy pattern is very much the same as ours. Looking for a solution is not a problem anymore! Salt therapy by Saltair can also be used for pets.

We need to explain that the Amazon negative reviews are due to the fact that, Amazon being an e-commerce platform, people are easily purchasing products without prior research about how salt therapy works. On Amazon store, the information about the product is minimal and to proper understand the therapy, more research is needed from purchaser. As a result, some Amazon purchasers do not properly understand how home salt therapy works. Very often they expect a more visible mist coming out from the unit. SaltAir device is not a humidifier, and you will not be able to see mist coming out from the unit. This does not mean the device is not effective! Most of the negative reviews talk about being too small and not delivering enough aerosol.

SaltAir is a Medical Device Class I in Canada, USA and Europe providing excellent results, for many years now! SaltAir is designed to release microscopic salt particles, under 2 microns, into the indoor air for long-term breathing. These salt particles are very tiny, and you are not able to see them; they need to be so tiny in order to penetrate deep into the lungs, to alveoli. The output quantity was established after extensive medical and scientific trials. It is finely adjusted for maximum benefit, in home use and long-term exposure. Increasing this quantity will put at risk patients with certain medical condition and will result in unwanted salt deposits inside the room. Trust our expertise that SaltAir unit is calibrated for best results and safety use at home! Never add salt in a regular humidifier, as some people may think can do!
