How can Salt Therapy Help with Asthma?

Are you tired of the numerous episodes of wheezing, gasping for breath, and a never-ending cough you get from asthma? The Salt Suite® brings to you a natural remedy to help you lower your asthma symptoms and keep you going with a deep fresh breath.

Asthma is a chronic disease of the airways characterized by episodes of chest tightness, cough, and difficulty breathing. Asthma is described as a hypersensitivity reaction in which the immune system triggers an inflammatory reaction which damages the airways in an attempt to protect your body from an allergen. Although it is uncertain why a person develops asthma, it has been associated with a family history of asthma or other forms of allergies.

Such allergens which trigger an “asthma attack” include irritants such as mold, dust mites, pollens, smoke, cold air, pet dander, and exercise.

While asthma is a chronic condition, there are ways it can be managed to improve your symptoms and quality of life. These treatment methods include corticosteroid inhalers or tablets, and in severe cases where your lungs might become so tight that you can’t take in enough air, your doctor will administer oxygen to you.

The Salt Suite® has brought a natural therapy for asthma to improve your symptoms and reduce the frequency and severity of the attacks. This is salt therapy.

How can Salt Therapy Improve Asthma Symptoms

Salt therapy, also called halotherapy or speleotherapy is a natural remedy to treat respiratory conditions including asthma, bronchitis, and allergies. It works by releasing small particles of salt into the air.

Salt treatment aims to recreate the environment at the beach only multiplied times 600.  Many can attest to the fact that when you go to the beach, you feel healthier and breathe more easily. This is partly because of the salt content in the air at the beach.  The concentration of salt in our rooms is about 600,000 to 800,000 particles of salt measured per minute.  Each particle is the size of 1 Micron. At the beach there is about 1,000 particles measured per minute.

When you inhale the salt aerosol, it is absorbed into your airways where it clears mucus plugs, thereby lowering the inflammation. The salt also kills pathogens such as bacteria and viruses which incite an asthma attack. What’s more, the salt inhaled causes your airways to become wider, allowing you breathe easily. It also clears off particles which cause your airway to be narrow.

These effects of inhaling salt aerosol will vary between individuals. At Salt Suite®, there are different packages which come with different package price and number of sessions. A complete regimen of sessions would provide a significant relief from your symptoms.

According to a study reported in Health Guidance, 57% of the participants who used salt therapy reported reduced sick days due to asthma attacks and their symptoms reduced significantly. The report also notes that if treatment was used regularly, the effects on the airway can last up to twelve months.

It is noteworthy; however, that salt therapy is not a cure for asthma and would not result in a permanent resolution of your symptoms, but it’s a great way to keep you free of your symptoms for a long time if you engage in regular and frequent sessions.

In addition, speak with your doctor before you try this natural remedy and don’t discontinue any of your prescribed medications or start a new drug for asthma unless directed by your doctor.

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
