We currently live in a very advanced society, where exposure to new things is the norm. As the world is continuously changing in various ways, different from how things have been in the past, it can be detrimental to us. Not only are some of these new exposures harmful, but they are not what we have evolved to know, and often times our bodies don't know how to respond properly. This introduces new illnesses and conditions that our population faces, or increased prevalence of already existing conditions. A great example of this is allergies, a phenomenon that was very rare only 50 years ago, and is something nearly half the population in the developed world now face.
We are starting to see a problem, as new health conditions continue to arise without the same development of drugs and technologies to treat these conditions. Luckily, when it comes to respiratory and skin conditions, salt therapy is a phenomenal treatment option that guides recovery for many illnesses. Since this is a completely natural therapy, it is very safe to use and can be used in the presence of healthy individuals with no harm. Also, this therapy isn't like a drug that was designed to treat one specific illness, but has very broad positive effects, making it beneficial for treating a vast amount of conditions.
Some of the symptoms that are commonly seen across respiratory illnesses are: wheezing, difficulty breathing, coughing (often expelling thick mucus) and shortness of breath. Salt therapy acts in a way that it helps relieve all these symptoms via mechanisms that often go to the root of the condition, helping with actual recovery instead of just relieving symptoms.
The way this therapy works, is that a patient inhales salt aerosol, which is normal air with a high concentration of salt particles. The sodium and negative ions in this salt aerosol have very many health benefits, primarily for respiratory conditions, but can also help with skin conditions, high blood pressure and better sleep and wellbeing.
The main mechanism of action of salt therapy is that it draws water to the surface of the respiratory tract when inhaled, drawing water towards it. This moistens often dry and thick mucus that is associated with most respiratory illnesses, allowing it to break up and be expelled, often through coughing. This leads to increased ease of breathing while also clearing any pathogens or debris that may have entered your respiratory tract. Additionally, that salt particles have anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial effects, clearing infection and reducing any swelling along the way. It promotes a better blood oxygenation and implicitly better organ functions, restful sleep and well-being. The salt behaves very similarly on skin, helping with skin conditions that often lead to very dry and cracked skin. The salt helps to heal, disinfect and kill germs on the skin being very beneficial in acne, eczema and other chronic skin conditions.
Don't continue to suffer from any respiratory or skin condition you may have, or even recurrent colds or infections. We are constantly battling something new, so using this broad-spectrum therapy is a smart option for you and your family.
