It is important to understand that salt therapy is a therapy designed to relieve congestion, inflammation and allergies of the airways and skin. Salt therapy cleanses the airways and skin, relieving the symptoms of the sufferer’s condition and works in conjunction with the sufferers prescribed medication. By relieving the symptoms of a condition, medication can become more effective resulting in better management of the condition and stronger relief.
- Have you ever been on a saline (salt water) nebulizer?
- Have you ever been told to go to the beach and breathe in the salt air, or swim in the salt water?
- When you have had a mouth ulcer, did you rinse your mouth out with salt water?
Salt therapy is another method of administering salt deep down into the airways, helping to clean out and relieve symptoms of respiratory conditions in a non invasive way.
What is the difference between salt therapy and sea air?
The natural anti inflammatory effect of salt, is it’s ability to draw fluid. When you breathe in sea air, it is already moist and has less of an anti inflammatory effect. When you breathe in dry salt aerosol in a salt room, the minute particles line your airways and draw out the fluid from the inflamed airway. This fluid, now mixed with the salt goes to work on cleaning the walls of the airways, resulting in the sufferer coughing up the congestion.
