In this 7th episode of the podcast I discuss about salt and nebulized saline solutions in the treatment of chronic respiratory disease.
I cover normal saline (0.9%), hypertonic saline, going into salt mines and if salt pipes serve any purpose. Some salt-based inhaled therapies have proven efficacy (saline nebulizers). Salt pipes don’t seem to be worth it in my opinion. I would be wary of dubious health claims regarding unusual benefits of “Himalayan salt” or similar hype.
