Relieving Sinusitis with Halotherapy

How The Salt Room Wesley Chapel Can Help Your Sinusitis 

Each year around 30 million Americans are diagnosed with sinusitis. That is roughly about 12 percent of adults in the country. Sinusitis is best known for its common name “sinus infection.” Many Americans use medication for temporary relief, although in extreme cases, surgery can be the only answer. Luckily at the Salt Room Wesley Chapel, we offer a drug-free treatment for relief known as halotherapy or salt therapy. 

What is sinusitis? 

Sinusitis is an infection or form of swelling behind the cheekbones or forehead known as your sinus cavities—viruses or bacteria in the body cause these cavities to become aggravated. The disease occurs due to mucus building up in the sinuses. In other cases, sinusitis can also be caused by allergens in the environment. People who experience this occurrence are known for having allergies. Symptoms of sinusitis are headaches, stuffy nose, nasal discharge from the nose, coughing (more likely at night), breathing difficulty, decreased sense of smell, or sore throat. Antibiotics are typically used to temporarily reduce these symptoms but are known for having side effects. 

How salt therapy will ease your sinusitis symptoms

Salt particles travel and draw out fluid from the sinuses. It reduces swelling in the nasal mucosa, which is the culprit behind the nasal blockage. This also widens the airway passage to the nose, which helps with nasal drainage. Salt therapy also reduces infection by killing bacteria. With salt therapy, your immune system will be boosted, allowing you to no longer need to rely on medications. All it takes is 5-15 sessions to get results that last 6-12 months. 

Clients who have more severe sinus problems have a membership that allows them unlimited salt therapy sessions. We have clients who have been free of sinus infections for the first time in years with regular visits once a week. 

How The Salt Room Helps Your Sinusitis 

At ‘The Salt Room Wesley Chapel,’ in a controlled environment, we recreate the climate found in salt mines and caves. For people suffering from sinusitis, we show you breathing techniques to maximize effects. The walls and floors of this unique room are covered with sea salt. We welcome you to listen to music, nap, read, or play on your phone while in these sessions. The treatment room also boasts a “halogenerator,” which is accountable for diffusing negatively charged particles (up to 3-5 microns) of sodium chloride aerosol. The halogenerator guarantees a clean supply of these beneficial sodium chloride particles. 

If you or someone else are looking for natural ways to cure your nasal congestion, try salt therapy! Here at The Salt Room, we have specially designed rooms with salt that will do the trick.

Cystic Fibrosis Relief with Salt Therapy

Salt therapy for cystic fibrosis

Cystic fibrosis is known to be one of the most lethal diseases in the world. The condition is named after the cyst formation in the pancreas. It is a disease of the lungs and digestive system. It makes the body produce thick mucus that blocks airways of the lungs, making it hard and sometimes impossible to breathe. Symptoms associated with cystic fibrosis include but are not limited to salty-tasting skin, inability to grow or gain weight, excess mucus production, frequent infections of the chest, and coughing/shortness of breath. It also has adverse effects in the digestive system as enzymes and bile fail to reach the intestine, which cant get to the blockage in the pancreas and liver. Cystic fibrosis is a hereditary disease that has effects throughout your entire body. The cause of this disease is determined when both parents are carriers of cystic fibrosis (meaning they both have at least one abnormal gene). Carriers of the cystic fibrosis gene pass it down generation to generation, making it one of the most common life-shortening diseases known to man. To this day, there is still no known cure. There are treatments and medications to provide short term relief from symptoms, but yet no cure.

How can Salt Therapy Relieve Cystic Fibrosis?

Fortunately, salt therapy treatments not only bring relief but can also prevent the recurrence of symptoms. Our respiratory system is always under a barrage of stress from pollens, pollutants, irritants, and allergens regularly. Those suffering from cystic fibrosis are particularly vulnerable. Salt therapy works directly with your lungs and respiratory to reduce inflammation and open airways, making it easier for mucus to be easily eliminated from our bodies.

How does salt therapy work?

To begin the therapy, the patient sits in a salt chamber; the patient inhales the salty air, which has antibacterial, anti-microbial, and anti-inflammatory p
roperties. Salt therapy treatment brings relief to carriers of cystic fibrosis by opening up the respiratory tract, clearing any mucus that has been accumulating, and unclogging blockages in the bronchi and bronchioles. Salt therapy also helps facilitate the drainage of sinusitis; this is found to be a common issue in patients suffering from cystic fibrosis. The salt therapy treatment can boost your immune system while also reducing your coughing, and some individuals have experienced a reduced dependence on prescription drugs.

With the help of ongoing sessions, patients have reported experiencing the benefits for an extended period. Depending on the severity of your cystic fibrosis, weekly salt therapy sessions can provide you with noticeable relief. Contact The Salt Room Wesley Chapel today to discuss the options that would best be suited for your conditions and desired outcome. Visit their website to make an appointment:

Can Negative Ions Create Positive Vibes?

Relationship Between Negative Ions and Salt Therapy

There’s something in the air, and it’s not because of flu season. Then what is it you may ask? Something you’d never expect- negative ions. For those of you not big on science jargon, negative ions are tasteless odorless and invisible molecules that we inhale. Negative ions are more abundant in some places than others. When we inhale these ions, they hit our bloodstream, thus creating a biochemical reaction within our body, increasing our mood by producing the chemical known as serotonin. This process has been known to cure disorders such as depression and insomnia. It has also been known to increase day time energy.

Give Me More Negative Ions

How can we expose ourselves to more negative ions, you ask? Negative ions are found in abundance all throughout nature! Places like the beach are a great place to start. You may think the feeling of the sand between your toes is what makes you feel so euphoric; in reality, it’s all of the negative ions whirling in the air around you, boosting your mood and stabilizing your serotonin levels. That salt air you smell, negative ions! Seaspray on your face, negative ions! Other areas, such as mountains or waterfalls, are also great areas that are abundant in negative ions. Is it any wonder we leave the beach or mother nature feeling recharged and healthy?

Nobody's Got Time For That

We all live busy lives, and it seems the busier we are, the more in need of the positive effects of negative ions we need. This need brought on the creation of a negative ion generating machine. These halogenerators are what make The Salt Room in Wesley Chapel your negative ion sanctuary. They can also help relieve allergy symptoms and other lung infections by reducing dander, dust mites, and bacteria with salt's natural sterilization properties.

What’s the science behind negative ions and halogenerators?

Studies from Columbia University show that people with seasonal and chronic depression benefit just as much if not more from a negative ion generator as they do their anti-depression medication. The best part about using the generator opposed to medication is that there are no negative side effects to negative ion treatment, as there are for the actual medication. Studies continue to research the method to figure out the perfect dose and which cases it works best for. Researchers have compared negative ions to the “Vitamins of the air.” Ions also help increase the flow of oxygen to the brain, which results in increased brain function, higher energy levels, and less drowsiness. They also help protect you from potential germs floating around in the air.
Come experience a negative ion environment at The Salt Room Wesley Chapel, and get all the health benefits as a day at the beach in only 45 minutes. See for yourself. Call or visit our website today.

Get COPD Relief with Salt Therapy

Effects of Salt Therapy For COPD

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (also known as COPD) is sort of an umbrella term used when talking about progressive lung diseases. Diseases that are generally characterized by increasing shortness of breath. Signs and symptoms of this disease are coughing, wheezing, tightness in the chest, and of course as stated prior- shortness of breath. At this time this is an incurable disease, but with the right diagnosis and treatment this is a very manageable disease. Many people live many years with COPD and enjoy day to day life. One of the most up and coming therapies for COPD is Halotherapy, also known to many as salt therapy. With salt's antibacterial, anti-inflammatory properties, it is no wonder the relief it provides to a wide spectrum of respiratory issues. COPD is no exception. Here are the main properties of how salt helps your lungs:

     Cleanses The Respiratory System: Salt is known to have a natural antibacterial property. By inhaling the salt, this cleans out any bacteria in your respiratory system, making it easier for you to breathe.
     Loosens Mucus: Halotherapy is known to loosen mucus in your lungs, which could give you a hard time breathing. By clearing out this mucus, it opens up your lungs thus increasing your lung capacity for oxygen. It will help you take deeper cleaner breaths.
     Removes Pathogens: Inhaling salt removes pathogens found in your lungs. A perfect example is pollen. Whether you have an allergy to pollen or not, during the spring time everyone has a much harder time breathing. A quick halotherapy session can help clear your lungs of all pathogens found in the air.

When entering a Halotherapy session, salt particles penetrate deep into the lung tissue through the use of a halogenerator. The halogenerator crushes the salt into tiny particles and is then pumped into a sealed room where the air you breathe is fresh and clean. The deeper the particles go, the longer you will enjoy the results of your session. Patients that have used Salt Therapy to help maintain the COPD symptoms have seen results last up to 12 months since their last therapy session. Many times traditional oxygen supplements may not suffice to suppress their symptoms, and halotherapy is the perfect addition to their health care routine to live their best lives with COPD.

Asthma Relief with Salt Therapy

What is Salt Therapy, and How Does it Provide Asthma Relief?

Salt therapy, also known as Halotherapy is the facilitation of dry salt inhalation within a controlled environment utilising Pharmaceutical Grade salt -this isn’t your average dinner table salt- resulting in a therapeutic environment. A device called a halogenerator measures and disperses a controlled amount of microscopic salt particles into the air of a salt room.

What Can Halotherapy Do For Me?

During the spraying process, the tiny salt particles also land on the skin. Exposing skin to the dry salt can help improve your skin’s protective properties and promote “superficial bacterial flora” (the good kind of bacteria that we want on our skin) meanwhile also decreasing the harmful bacteria that is often found on the skin.
Pharmaceutical grade salt is also has a natural anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial component to it, which is great for people with skin conditions.

What Can Salt Therapy Do For My Asthma?

When inhaled, the pharmaceutical salt is deeply carried into airways and lungs, where the salt particles begin to prompt the body’s process of what’s known as the cilia movement. This natural occurrence acts as a bronchiole brush, thinning out mucus and making it easier for your body to get rid of the unwanted mucus, as well as taking pathogens and debris commonly found in the respiratory system with it, making it an easier to breathe.

What Are The Results?

Salt therapy is one of the best known therapies for creating immediate results. Many patients said they noticed results as they were sitting in the salt cave. Breathing becomes lighter and clearer, many who suffered from coughs no longer experienced symptoms. You not only get the medical benefits of the salt cave, but the therapeutic environment can do wonders for the spiritual and mental wellbeing.
Are there any risks?
As with most treatments of asthma, you should consult with your doctor first. On our website, we provide a great deal of research from a variety of sources which have studied salt therapy and the extensive therapeutic benefits it offers. Please visit our site under Salt Therapy Research for more information.

Salt Therapy Overall

Halotherapy is found to be a great therapeutic way to alleviate symptoms commonly found in asthma. Many patients have noticed results almost immediately after leaving their appointments, read some of our reviews on Google. Always be sure to consult your doctor if you have any questions concerning how halotherapy may affect any conditions you have.
