What is the Original Himalayan Crystal Salt™ Inhaler?
The Original Himalayan Crystal Salt™ Inhaler is a convenient, drug-free and non-invasive device designed to allow the inhalation of the Original Himalayan Crystal Salt vapors that deliver natural respiratory relief.
The ceramic inhaler contains hand-mined, dry, pure salt from the Himalayan Mountains. This incredible salt contains 84 ional minerals and trace elements. The bottom of the inhaler contains the salt, which is placed between two porcelain filters.
The inhaler is made from very sturdy ceramic and will not leak or spill. The base is wide enough to sit without tipping and the ceramic surface is easy to clean and hold.
How the Original Himalayan Crystal Salt™ Inhaler Works
Coarse granulated Original Himalayan Crystal Salt® is placed between the inhaler chambers, and as you breathe through the inhaler, microscopic salt particles are absorbed through the moisture in the air, which flows into the respiratory system, delivering beneficial effects.
Benefits of the Original Himalayan Crystal Salt™ Inhaler
A safe, natural way to support a healthy bronchial tract. The Original Himalayan Crystal Salt® Inhaler can provide helpful functional support for respiratory problems caused by:
• Pollen & other allergies

Speleotherapy and Halotherapy
Speleotherapy, also known as cave therapy, was developed in the mid-1800’s after Polish salt miners were found to have lower incidence of pulmonary disease. Variations have developed around the world. Halotherapy is the use of a chamber creating the cave microclimate for therapeutic use. A variety of articles, most written in Russian, have evaluated halotherapy in bronchial asthma, acute and chronic bronchitis, with halotherapy treatment courses of 10-20 one-hour sessions costing $500-$1000. Controlled experiments have been very difficult to measure due to lack of placebo; however, proponents of these therapies suggest use in the following:
- Abatement of bronchial inflammation
- Removal of airborne pollen particles from airways
- Strengthening of immune system that decreases allergic reaction to pollens
- Cleansing and sanitation of the airways
- Reduction of snoring
- Better sleep
In a pilot study of 35 patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), a dry salt inhaler improved six-minute walk times, but not necessarily lung volume measured using spirometry. Therefore, while dry salt inhalation does not reverse the etiology of asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), it is believed to have therapeutic benefits in relieving the symptoms that are most often found with associated with these chronic conditions and thus quality of life. At the 2010 World Allergy Organization International Scientific Symposium, president Dr. Richard Lockey, MD said, "I don't believe you can take care of an asthmatic without addressing their comorbid conditions, and there are many of them. In my opinion, diagnosis and treatment guidelines should also address these comorbid conditions."
This extends to other areas such as patients with compromised immune systems which include the elderly, cancer and AIDS patients who often die from diseases associated to their condition like pneumonia. Additionally, smoking cessation, during and upon quitting, causes a difficult cough while the cilia become coordinated. The use of salt inhalation therapy can help to relieve these symptoms which can in turn improve compliance to a quit smoking plan.
Often long term use of dry salt inhalation therapy has been proposed for the comorbidities of these chronic conditions with periods ranging from weeks to months to years depending on severity and condition General recommendations are once or twice daily in the morning and evening. Inhalation durations range from 5 to 20 minutes again depending on the condition. However, because dry salt inhalation does not address the original genesis of the respiratory condition, lifelong, continued use may be reasonable for chronic conditions. To date, no contraindications have been observed with current pulmonary, bronchial, or asthmatic medications.
The type of salt used in the dry salt inhaler may play an important role as well. Crystal salts are unique in that they are formed under significant pressures. Bio-regulatory medicine practitioners prefer crystal salts for their bio-energetic quality. Additionally, the crystal salt should be hand cleaned. Industrial cleaners can damage the sensitive tissues of the respiratory tract. Finally, not all crystal salt is created equally. Most have done little to no analysis of what minerals are contained in the crystalline structure. Look for one that provides a certificate of analysis listing all the trace minerals and no contaminants.

To date there have been two clinical studies done on Original Himalayan Crystal Salt. The first was conducted at the University of Graz, Austria in 2001, and is detailed in the book Water & Salt, The Essence of Life.
The second was a double-blind placebo clinical study was conducted in 2007, in Las Vegas, Nevada, to test the body’s reaction to the ingestion of common sea salt versus the ingestion of Original Himalayan Crystal Salt. The purpose of this study was to evaluate Original Himalayan Crystal Salt as a safe and effective all-natural mineral supplement.
In addition there are currently two other studies being conducted on Original Himalayan Crystal Salt. One testing Original Himalayan Crystal Salt’s ability to reduce blood pressure in patients with high blood pressure and the other using the Original Himalayan Crystal Salt Inhaler to improve patients suceptability to pulmonary diseases such as pneumonia and bronchitis.

"Water & Salt - The Essence of Life."
Anecdotally, in the Austrian test, subjects who drank water with our Original Himalayan Crystal Salt® sole added saw significant positive changes in respiratory, circulatory, organ, connective tissue, and nervous system functions. Patients also reported increases in quality of sleep, energy, and concentration levels, brain activity, weight loss, enhanced consciousness, and noticeable hair and nail growth.
2007 FENESTRA LABS STUDY OVERVIEW
This study was performed by FENESTRA RESEARCH LABS clinical study personnel on sight in Las Vegas, Nevada. The OPTIMAL WELLNESS TEST portion of this research was done using proprietary devices and methodologies developed by FENESTRA RESEARCH LABS.
This was a 30-day, 70-subject study drawn from a large population of subjects in good general health. The subjects were randomized into two groups, 50-subjects on live product (Original Himalayan Crystal Salt®) and 20-subjects taking a generic sea salt respectively. The group of 20 subjects was the placebo control. The group of 50 subjects was the Test Group (TG).
The Test Group (TG) consumed a solution prepared for them by Fenestra Research Labs staff of healthcare professionals in advance, of brine (sole) made with (Original Himalayan Crystal Salt®). Each subject in the TG consumed every morning one (1) teaspoon of the prepared sole solution stirred well into to an eight (8) ounce glass of purified water upon rising, on an empty stomach. The TG Subjects did not consume any other drink, vitamin, supplements, or food for the next one half hour minimum time.
The Control Group (CG) consumed a solution prepared for them in advance by Fenestra Research Labs staff of healthcare professionals, a brine solution made with generic sea salt. Each subject in the CG consumed every morning one (1) teaspoon of the prepared brine solution stirred well into to an eight (8) ounce glass of purified water upon rising on an empty stomach. The CG subjects did not consume any other drink, vitamin, supplements, or food for the next one half hour minimum time.
Baseline data was collected from each client having a clean body before they were provided the product. Healthcare professionals with Optimal Wellness Test research experience collected this data. Staff consists of experienced hospital, doctor, and private healthcare professionals.

|The unnatural crystals are isolated and dead. The body must sacrifice tremendous amounts of energy to metabolize this. The result is a damaging loss and zero gain.||Irregular and isolated crystalline structures disconnected from the natural elements surrounding them. The body cannot absorb the vital minerals unless it expends tremendous energy to vitalize them. The result is a small net gain with an even greater loss of energy.||The balanced crystalline structure reveals fine branching, no shadows or rough edges. The crystal is connected in a harmonious state. The mineral energy content is balanced and can be easily metabolized by the body. As a food, it will have an energetic effect on the body.
