My whole family suffers from allergies and we had a salt lamp. It really didn't make a difference for us.

Use your head when reading fad cures. How is a little salt in the house air going to stop allergies? If anyone has a link to a scientific study, please post!

A little salt in a sinus wash is necessary to make the water near your body's requirements so the wash doesn't sting, but that's a different thing altogether. A wash will clean out pollen and dust from your nasal passages when you come in from outside. I use this and a shower when I come in from mowing my fields.

But I also take an antihistamine before I go out to work when the pollen level's really high, like right now. I've been needing more than just my allergy shots this year because we've had a lot of rain and the weeds are really lush this year.
