Salt Therapy and Frankincense Tonic Water: Client Case Study

Periodically at Hope in Health, we share one of our client’s experiences of our therapies and products. Today we’re sharing Jill’s story – a beautiful soul who first visited us two years ago.

Jill says: “I met Philly in 2016 – my daughter-in-law introduced us. I’d been diagnosed with breast cancer that year, and had gone through a lumpectomy and radiotherapy. I also suffer from Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), and so I really did feel very weak.

My daughter-in-law had heard that Philly had opened Hope in Health and that the clinic had a Salt Therapy cave. She persuaded me to go along for a visit and so I did, not really knowing what to expect. I think I was one of her first clients – perhaps even the first client in there!

It was so peaceful inside, with relaxing music playing in the background. Philly was so warm and welcoming, we chatted for ages and I felt very comfortable. I also left the clinic with a month’s supply of Frankincense Tonic Water and some instructions on how to use it.

A week or so after I’d started drinking the tonic water regularly I began a Pulmonary Rehab course: 8 weeks of physical exercise and advice on managing a chronic lung condition. I’d attended one before and hadn’t seen much change in my COPD so, to be perfectly honest, I wasn’t expecting much.

When I began the course, I still felt very poorly. The cancer treatment had taken it out of me and I was barely able to walk across the room. My first goal was to be able to walk for 5 minutes on the treadmill. At the time, it felt like an impossible task.

But despite the challenge, things were different this time – inside me, that is. I was determined to make progress. Salt Therapy had made my breathing easier and helped me to relax, while I found drinking the tonic water gave me a sense of wellbeing. It’s hard to explain, but I experienced a real boost in my physical energy.

Things gradually improved – ten minutes on the treadmill, then fifteen. At the end of the course I was invited to join the gym to continue the progress I’d made. Suddenly I was able to pace for 45 minutes on the treadmill. Two weeks ago, I went on the rowing machine for the first time. I still can’t believe it!

Since I started the course, I’ve lost 19kgs and my BMI is almost down to the ‘normal weight’ category. My eating habits have changed and I’m far more mobile than I was. I’ve seen a huge difference in my COPD – I feel so much better. In fact, I feel like a different woman.

Salt Therapy and Frankincense Tonic Water were the perfect complement to the COPD course. Having completed Pulmonary Rehab before and being able to compare the two experiences, I can honestly say that they made the difference. They gave me the energy boost I needed and the motivation to succeed.”

Philly says: Jill’s story is so inspirational, and I’m very grateful she agreed to share it here. She went from a shadow of a life to living fully and, best of all, she didn’t have to take more medication to achieve her goals.

Frankincense really is nature’s wonder drug and our Tonic Water is winning fans globally. I’m repeatedly asked ‘What does it feel like?’ and my answer is “Happiness in a bottle.” It heightens awareness, awakens the consciousness and keeps you in the moment. It has profound benefits on a cellular level, which you can read more about here.

Salt Therapy can be used by anyone – whether you’re young, old, suffering with a chronic condition or pregnant. The Salt Cave is specifically designed for people suffering from respiratory and skin issues – everything from asthma and allergies or eczema. Have you ever felt the difference in your breathing after spending a day inhaling salty air at the coast? Well, Salt Therapy is similar; except our dry saline aerosol is controlled and concentrated, so symptoms frequently improve after only one session.

Salt Therapy is 100% drug-free and can be used safely in combination with your current medications and treatments (just as Jill did) to provide relief like you’ve never experienced before. Plus, you get to enjoy our beautiful therapy cave – sit in a cocooning chair, listen to some relaxing music and chill out.
