Asthma Treatment

himalayan salt inhaler

  • By buckw65

    About a week or so ago I started using a Himalayan salt inhaler. For my asthma I use 2 puffs of symbicort twice per day and ventiline around 5 times per day.
    Since I’ve been using the salt inhaler (9 days) I haven’t used my ventiline at all. I wake up and my lungs are not tight. I’m going to try and reduce my symbicort next. Anyone else try a Himalayan salt inhaler??

    Hi buckw65 and thanks for your post. While others in the community may share their experiences with Himalayan Salt Therapy, I thought you might find it helpful to look over this article on that very topic: https://copd.net/answers/himalayan-salt-lamps/. It is from our sister site: COPD.net.
    All the best,
