DRY SALT THERAPY CAN HELP ALLEVIATE THE SYMPTOMS OF ASTHMA
Asthma is a condition in which your airways narrow and swell to produce excess mucus. This can make breathing more difficult and trigger wheezing, coughing, and shortness of breath. Asthma can’t be cured, but its symptoms can be controlled.
HOW DRY SALT THERAPY WORKS:
Dry Salt Therapy (halotherapy) consistently demonstrates a positive effect on asthma symptoms. Over a series of sessions, inhalation of dry salt aerosol will bring about the improvement in mucus removal, decrease of bronchial inflammation, the decrease or elimination of pathogenic microorganisms, and a reduction of bronchial hyper- responsiveness.
This translates into better lung function, fewer spasmodic attacks, and clearer air passages. Naturally, antibacterial and anti- inflammatory sodium chloride particles are carried into the deepest areas of the bronchial system due to the unique aerosol dispersal system and the microscopic size of the particles.
In controlled studies, the majority of subjects showed reduced bronchial obstruction, better drain function of airways, and improved viscosity of bronchial secretions. The number and intensity of asthma attacks were reduced, respiratory discomfort diminished or disappeared, which allowed most to reduce or even eliminate prescribed medications.
*While there are many clinical and scientific studies conducted on dry salt therapy (halotherapy) throughout the world, the FDA has not evaluated the statements made here. Dry salt therapy is not intended to diagnosis, treat, cure, or prevent any disease but rather be an additional modality that may help ease symptoms. Dry salt therapy is not intended to replace medications or treatments. Any health issues should be treated by a licensed medical professional and any further questions relating to halotherapy should be directed to your physician.
