The Salt Suite & COPD
Did you know that COPD is the third leading cause of death here in America? 11 million are diagnosed with it and an estimated 10 million more could be. It is COPD or Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. According to the Mayo Clinic, Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a chronic inflammatory lung disease that causes obstructed airflow from the lungs. Symptoms include breathing difficulty, cough, mucus (sputum) production and wheezing. It’s caused by long-term exposure to irritating gases or particulate matter, most often from cigarette smoke.
Now the good news.
Want to really keep the lungs and respiratory system strong? Add dry salt therapy into the mix. Dr. Norman Edelman, Senior Scientific Advisor to the American Lung Association tells us, “When fine salt particles are inhaled, they will fall on the airway linings and draw water into the airway, thinning the mucus and making it easier to raise, thus making people feel better.” Combine strengthening the heart and the lungs and people with COPD can find relief from the suffering they continually experience. Life is meant to be enjoyed and without wellness, it can be a challenge.
