I'm probably not alone in doing research on possible help besides medication.

Has anyone had any experience of trying salt cave therapy? I have read pros and cons about it.

Many thanks.

    Hi Janet

    I have never done salt cave therapy but I do use a salt pipe on a daily basis for 15 minutes. I find it helps to loosen the mucus before using my Acapella. I have done this probably for two years now and find it works for me.

      Hi Kath. I have known people use the salt lamps but more for general health and well being. Not people with breathing issues.

    Yes I heard of the salt pipe used for daily chest clearance.

    However, I am fortunate to own The Vest which requires me to do chest clearance daily for 30 minutes.

    If I become ill then this is increased to twice daily for 30 minutes.

    I am sorry that I can’t comment as to the use of this treatment. However, one of these opened up very near us in our “ village” which is really a suburb of south Manchester in the UK. It had darkish windows so you almost literally had to go right up to the window to see inside, which looked like a cafe. No one seemed to know what it was all about, and no one I knew had any idea, either. It closed down after a few months. As we have two Chinese herbal type practices which have lasted for years, the locals obviously have open minds on therapies. It’s now a Spanish tapas restaurant, called La Cueva which means the cave! Just ensure you’re not giving money “up front” for a series of treatments in case one day, they’re no longer there.

      I totally agree Estelle about not wasting money. The closest one to me offers a free 1st session but I'm so aware that they will try and convince everyone that this treatment is them!!! 

      I'm just not sure because I seem to have what they call...dry BX. 

      I'm due to see my consultant this afternoon so will see what she thinks.

      Thanks for your help.
