    It's like living near the beach It helps to clear your airways of mucus (so it's great for people with cystic fibrosis who are often encouraged to go to the beach daily when they live near the beach).
    The alternatives for us were either a heater on every night (expensive), or a steroid based nasal spray for a child who becomes extremely violent and aggressive on steroid based medicine. For us, it was a no brainer but you've got to do what you're comfortable with.
    Our salt therapy centre is run by registered nurses, not some hippy quack who got certified off the internet

    Could it be asthma? My two boys seemed to catch every respiratory bug going around, until we got them on asthma preventer meds. Has made a big difference.

    We have a salt therapy centre near us (brilliant for respiratory issues if there's one near you) so we got it from there. But I've noticed health food shops selling them now as well. Ours only cost $25 so don't get ripped off!
    What to do you mean safe in the long term? In what regards? We used to have to put a heater on in my kids room to stop the cold air triggering asthma symptoms. Now we just have the salt lamp on. You just need to place a towel underneath it to catch the moisture it drops, but I've never been worried about safety. It actually works as a brilliant night light for the kids
    Where did u get a $25 salt thingy from if u don't mind me asking? The only ones I can find are over $200.

    OP I second the other poster in regards to tonsils.

    My 4yo is so so skinny, always a poor water and gets sick so easily and regularly.

    He never gets tonsillitis but regularly has sore throats and runny noses which then gives way to temperatures and more nasty bugs.

    Anyways for about the last year I've thought he may need his tonsils out and I've always checked them to see if they we're enlarge need. Well, in the last 3 months they've grown out of sight. He can hardly chew and swallow and all of this has coincided with his constant illnesses.

    On top of that, he mouth breathes whilst asleep, eats poorly, no weight gain (my 2.5yr old weighs more now), tosses and turns all night and has concentration issues.
    Finally the drs agree, tonsils have to come out.

    Do any of these symptoms sound similar to your ds?

    I've heard nothing but positive outcomes so in hoping this will help.

    Maybe have a look at his tonsils as well?????

    Mine did have regular red, sore throats, but the give away was how big the tonsils were.

    My ds really ticked most of the boxes from this article which got me back to my dr's office quick smart.
