Salt Therapy is Proven to Better Your Health
Salt Therapy, also referred to as Halotherapy, is a drug-free holistic therapy that recreates the microclimate of a salt cave and helps treating respiratory conditions such as cold, flu, allergies, asthma, bronchitis, cystic fibrosis, sinus infections, sinusitis, rhinitis, hay fever and emphysema. In addition, the anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties of salt therapy effectively treat skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis. Salt Therapy can dramatically enhance sports and singing performances and improve lung function by increasing lung capacity and stamina. It has no side effects and helps build your immune system.
Salt Therapy helps treat several health conditions:
Airborne allergens, ranging from pollen and dust to mould spores, per dander and fibres, are the most common reasons for allergies. If allergies are not treated, they can also lead to nasal polyps or swollen nasal turbinates. Common symptoms are: coughing, wheezing, red, swollen eyes, sore throat, frequent nosebleeds, postnasal drip, mouth ulcers, heartburn, irritability and depression.
Dry sodium chloride aerosol eliminates airborne pollen particles from the airways. The air composition strengthens immunity and better immunity decreases allergic reaction to pollens and other allergens. The treatment’s efficacy is estimated at 75 – 98%. Patients normally choose to stop using antihistamine, steroids and other drugs after 5-10 sessions. Halotherapy is 100% natural, safe and drug-free, providing effective long-term relief for people suffering from allergies such as hayfever. It can be used as a complementary treatment to prescribed medications or as a sole treatment.
If you are suffering from cold or flu, salt therapy will bring you relief by opening the nasal airways, killing bacteria and facilitating the drainage of the sinuses. If you are suffering from chest congestion you will start breathing easier as the Halotherapy accelerates mucous clearance from your lungs.
Studies indicate that nutrients found in salt are essential to your skin, immune system, circulation and body to replenish moisture and offset the harmful toxins we naturally ingest.
