With its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, salt therapy can help a cold or even improve your skin. This healing mineral has been around for centuries and cures other common conditions, such as psoriasis and eczema. Salt is being rediscovered as a natural medical miracle to heal common ailments.
Dr Oz: Salt Inhaler
1. Salt inhaler- Salt inhalers can help with a cold. Dr Oz and Donna demonstrate by using the inhaler to suck in as much as you can through the mouth. Breathe out through the nose. Donna stated that she could taste the salt and that it made her sinuses much clearer. Dr Oz showed an image of how it worked. You sucked in through the mouth and exhaled the salt through the nose. When you sucked in the salt, the cilia( located on the tongue and contained a thick mucus) was cleaned off. The salt inhaler is also great for cold and flu symptoms. You can purchase this item for $25 online.
