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.
