A 26-year-old female asked:
Is it true that salt inhaler pipes are effective at cleansing the upper respiratory tract?

Unusual: This sounds like a gimmick. There are many medications that can clear the upper respiratory tract such as "ocean spray", available over the counter without prescriptions. Best to check with your doc to be safe.
