Positive Expiratory Pressure Exerciser
The “Pepe” is a new hand held, pocket sized lung physiotherapy device which clears airways, helps strengthen and protect lungs and supports the respiratory system. Building immunity and assisting in protection against colds and serious flus and viruses, it also provides relief for sufferers of conditions such as asthma and COPD. While it definitely won’t cure Coronavirus it will give users a far better chance of staying well, while speeding up recovery.
The Pepe was invented by Peter Crawford, a youthful and charismatic 70 year old indigenous inventor from the Gold Coast.  Brought up near Cessnock in the Hunter Valley, his grandmother was an Italian immigrant interested in deep breathing and all things natural, while his grandfather was an indigenous witch doctor for the district, known as a Kurdaitcha.  Peter acknowledges this extraordinary influence on his invention was impactful and says ,“The Pepe is a natural, drug free device that ensures correct diaphragmatic breathing which in turn helps build a stronger immunity and allows for the elimination of mucous, bacteria and other contaminants from the lungs.”
Peter goes onto to say: “lung and immunity strength is vitally important in preventing illnesses and aids in the treatment of various serious diseases.” He enthuses that “the Pepe forces you to fully breathe and in turn this expands lung capacity and volume and enhances your immune system. While continuing to add that “using my Pepe for 10 minutes a day will give you a far better chance of not getting sick, with faster recovery times.  Its really simple to use- no batteries, drugs or electricity are needed- with real control over your lung and immunity health”. Peter believes that “disease prevention and illness recovery is only as good as your respiratory health and how well your immune system is operating”. Dozens of international medical papers written over the last 35 years confirm the effectiveness of Pepe, positive expiratory pressure, as therapy for breathing, lung and respiratory disorders.
The Pepe is now Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) registered as a class one medical device and is stocked in many Australian hospitals in lung physiotherapy and respiratory departments as well as used in the wider community. Recently Peter has begun exporting to China and South Korea. Peter has been using his own prototype of the Pepe for over 25 years and says “ I’m very rarely sick, I have so much energy and stamina and everyone thinks I’m in my mid 50s rather than my real age of 70…I even still play rugby and touch footy most weeks. Hooray for the Pepe”.
The Harrison family have lived in the Hunter Valley for over 100 years. Tim Harrison has been using the Pepe for many months now. Concerned about dust and air pollution from local coal mines and industry, Tim says “ we had installed air purifiers to combat the dirty air in our house. I also really wanted something simple that I could use to clear my airways from all the pollution and contaminants circulating in the air.”    Best of all he adds “ my wife Clare uses her Pepe for 10 minutes before bedtime. It’s really helpful for her breathing as well as her daytime energy and gives her peace of mind knowing she’s always building up her lungs and immunity says “ I was having disrupted sleep most nights and always felt quite anxious during the day. The Pepe has turned this on its head.”
Further to this, people in the Hunter Valley and in other regional areas where there is smoke from bushfires and pollution from mining, are really concerned for their health. Many health practitioners such as Dr Tuan Au of Singleton  have been signalling  the perils associated with dangerously high levels of air pollution as a consequence of coal mining in the region (see https:/
