3. Respiratory Relief?

Salt therapy developed from observations that European salt mine workers in the 1800s experienced fewer respiratory problems than the rest of the local population. As extensive research notes, this treatment has demonstrated some healing benefits, including minor relief from asthma, cystic fibrosis, and allergy symptoms. However, these benefits come from exposure to highly concentrated salt sources such as salt caves and inhalers. A salt lamp — even a few lamps — cannot fill the air with these high concentrations.
