Salt Therapy and your Sinuses

As the weather begins to cool down, the frigid air could mean a flare up in your sinusitis. And if you have sinus issues, like many others, medications alone don’t offer enough relief. Instead of living life with an irritated sinus, try halotherapy.

Halotherapy isn’t a new fad lifestyle. People in Eastern Europe have used salt for its detoxifying properties since the late 1800s. Back then, people went to salt caves to reap the benefits of dry halotherapy. Nowadays, there’s no need to get out your passports. Halotherapy is closer than you think, thanks to The Salt Suite®.

But how does it work?

There are two types of salt therapies you can use: wet and dry. Wet halotherapy provides comfort for less severe cases and can be done in the comfort of your home. Examples of this are gargling warm salt water, using saline nasal drops, or making a nasal wash. Although these DIY projects offer some relief, they don’t provide enough respite to use alone, nor do these at-home mixtures work on moderate to severe chronic sinusitis.

On the other hand, dry halotherapy works by cleaning the body from the inside out. Sinusitis is usually caused by pressure on the wall of the sinus cavity due to an infection or an abundant amount of mucus in the nasal cavity, which is the perfect place for bacteria to grow. As the amount of bacteria increases and spreads, the symptoms begin. It starts with a stuffy nose but progresses into a throbbing nasal cavity with immense pressure.

Thankfully, breathing in the microcrystalline salt particles can help alleviate your symptoms. Salt rooms use a halogenerator that emits small microscopic salt particles into the air. The salty air is charged with negative ions, working on a molecular level to cleanse your body from the inside out. Seeing as salt has healing properties such as being antiseptic, antibacterial and antifungal, the body uses the salt to heal itself instead of masking symptoms. More importantly, it’s a great way to manage the body’s mucus production and nasal inflammation. Since these are the two main symptoms of sinusitis, it makes sense to use salt therapy to augment your treatment regimen.

So if you’re suffering from acute or chronic sinusitis, there is no need to suffer in silence. Halotherapy can help relieve you of those bothersome symptoms with a non-invasive therapy that is literally just breathing.  Come into The Salt Suite® and Breathe Easy™.
