I began my experience with the Salt Room in March, doing a 45 minute “Halotherapy” session every week, in an attempt to find relief from spring allergies & acute sinusitis. Meds from doctors and over the counter quick fixes, were making me ill, costing me money and were simply not working. I found that going once a week gave me almost instant relief for a few days, but I could hardly wait to get back when I couldn’t breath again. I am a poster child for “halotherapy”. Smoked for 40 years, triple bypass 4 years ago and consistent hives from my heart meds, to name only a few of my issues.
Since my daughter was 3 years old we have struggled with allergies and asthma…she has been hospitalized 5 times in the last 3 years (she is almost 7) for a simple cold. Whenever she would get a head cold her oxygen levels would drop rapidly forcing to a trip to the ER. Doctor after doctor was prescribing steroids, inhalers, nasal sprays among other things. Every checkup at the pulmonologist resulted in a new medication because her lungs weren’t functioning at full capacity so we feared another hospitalization.
