Health Benefits of Salt Therapy
Allergies occur when your immune system reacts to a foreign substance - pollen, airborne particles, or pet dander for example. When you have allergies your immune system makes antibodies that identify a particular allergen as harmful, even though it isn't so the reaction is to inflame your skin, sinuses, airways or digestive system.
Dry Salt Therapy reduces inflammation and thins bronchial and nasal secretions. Improved drainage allows for a reduction in contaminants that may trigger or prolong an allergic episode.
Asthma is a condition in which your airways narrow and swell to produce extra mucus. This can make breathing more difficult and trigger coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath. Asthma can't be cured, but its symptoms can be controlled.
Dry Salt Therapy consistently demonstrates a dramatic positive effect on asthma symptoms. Over a series of sessions, inhalation of dry salt aerosol will bring about the improvement of mucociliary clearance and the decrease of bronchial inflammation, the decrease or elimination of pathogenic microorganisms, and a reduction of bronchial hyper-responsiveness
Cough, Colds & Flu
The common cold is a viral infection of your nose and throat (upper respiratory tract). usually harmless, though it may not feel that way.
Dry Salt Therapy has an immediate remedial effect on the symptoms of colds and flu. Breathing becomes easier as inhaled salt aerosol naturally absorbs edema from swollen air passages and thins mucus secretions so that drainage is easier. The microscopic salt particles can be taken deep into the respiratory cavity bringing antibacterial and anti-inflammatory action to the root of the problem.
COPD, Emphysema & Bronchitis
The multiple effects of Dry Salt Therapy work to cleanse the respiratory system and speed up the elimination of toxins in the body. Inflammation is reduced due to the natural properties of the inhaled salt particles, which also thin bronchial and nasal secretions. The smallest micro particles of salt reach the lower respiratory system and work as a 'bronchial toothbrush' for the airways
Sinus Infections & Sinusitis
Acute sinusitis causes the cavities around your nasal passages to become inflamed and swollen and interferes with drainage. Dry Salt Therapy provides relief from swollen tissues, widens passages, improving drainage and increasing aeration behind the tympanic membrane reducing infection in the pockets where bacteria often builds up due to the collected fluid.
Snoring & Sleeping Problems
Snoring is the hoarse and harsh sound when your breathing is partially obstructed in some way while sleeping. Most snoring and sleep apnea caused by obstructed air passages is relieved due to the antiemetic and anti-inflammatory properties of salt particles.
Dry Salt Therapy opens and widens air passages and soothes irritated tissue and muscles so that restful breathing can be achieved.
Cystic Fibrosis is an inherited disorder that causes severe damage to the lungs, digestive system, and other organs in the body. Secretions become sticky and thick instead of acting as a lubricant, the secretions plug up tubes, ducts, and passageways, especially in the lungs and pancreas.
Dry Salt Therapy has proven to be an invaluable resource for sufferers of cystic fibrosis. The hydrophilic and mucokinetic action of inhaled salt particles thins unnaturally thick and sticky mucus, clearing accumulated secretions and unclogging passages in the bronchi and bronchiole. Other benefits are the absorption of edema from the mucosa lining of the airways and the reduction of inflammation in the respiratory tract and sinuses
