Rock salt has been used for centuries around the world to ease respiratory discomfort. A trial involving asthmatic and allergic patients and those with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) showed the saltpipe improved symptoms in more than half of them. During a three week period, 25 of the 50 patients were given a placebo pipe and the others a pipe filled with organic, crystal salt. At the end of the trial, 56% of those using the saltpipe had an improvement in lung function compared to 34% on the placebo pipe. Just under 74%
had an improvement in their breathing.” The Daily Mail, Tuesday 26 April 2005
I would like to introduce this wonderful product –Natural Herbal Packs. My Korean Teachers at the Dahn Center use these warmers to help students to relax during meditation. Organic herbal warmers are used to relieve minor muscle pains and aches due to the common cold.
I liked the product so much that I got in touch with the manufacturer and became an authorized distributor of Herbal Packs. I found these particular warmers to be the best fitting, to have the softest fabric and to have the most lasting herbal fragrance on the market. They work wonders on back, shoulder and knee pains; they help you relax and relieve tension; they open up breathing passages – and all naturally. These herbal warmers are a perfect gift for someone special. There are a wide variety of shapes, fabrics and sets available for fast and timely delivery.
When compared to wearing wool next to the skin, alpaca is very soft and does not itch like wool.Alpaca is one of the softest natural fibers but it can irritate some skin types. Itch is a skin sensitivity issue , determined by an individual‘s composition and is very subjective. Alpaca is three times as warm as wool if the gauge of yarn is the same. Alpaca got a lighter weight, thinner yarn strand and thus a thinner fabric. Alpaca contains hollow fibers, which creates a better insulation. Alpaca non slip socks are great every day home socks. I love to wear them instead of slippers.
