Salt Therapy and Psoriasis

Salt therapy and psoriasis are a match made for each other. When you have psoriasis you know how difficult it can be to treat with conventional methods. All the creams and lotions in the world sometimes isn’t enough, is it? So you may need to try salt therapy from The Salt Suite®!

What Is Psoriasis?

Psoriasis according to the National Psoriasis Foundation is a skin condition characterized by an immune deficiency in the body producing red, scaly, itchy patches of irritated skin. It’s mostly on the knees, elbows, hairline, and even on the scalp. In some people it can appear anywhere on the body and isn’t limited to certain areas. Scientists aren’t sure where this disease comes from, other than the immune connection in the body. Genetics may be a factor as well that’s being studied to pinpoint where the disease comes from.  Certain triggers can make bouts with the disease worse, causing severe flare-ups. Sometimes lifestyle changes and diet can help to curb the symptoms.

Why Salt Therapy Or Halotherapy Can Help

Other than seeing an immunologist, you can also seek help with halotherapy. Salt based treatment a few times a week can help prevent the flair-up from occurring. Less frequent bouts of the rash caused by psoriasis can mean better looking skin overly. Plus, you’ll feel less itchy and the irritated patches will improve over time. With an unlimited package from The Salt Suite® you can commit to as many treatments in the salt therapy rooms as you need. You’ll notice right away if your skin improves.

 The reason it’s so effective is that the salty air kills bacteria, it’s an anti-inflammatory, and can reduce the lgE levels, so the immune system is less susceptible to outbreaks. In a way your body becomes more tolerate of the disease, so that your triggers aren’t causing the problem to occur in the first place.

“During a typical adult session customers put their feet up in a comfortable leather chair rest or read and breathe in a dry salt aerosol. The micro particles are blown in the air by halo generators. In our separate children’s room kids play in a big sand box except with salt on the walls and floor and play while breathing in the dry salt air.”
