Dry Salt Therapy (Halotherapy)
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a chronic inflammatory lung disease that causes obstructed airflow from the lungs. Symptoms include breathing difficulty, mucus production, cough, and wheezing. Chronic bronchitis and emphysema are the two most common conditions that contribute to COPD. Chronic bronchitis is inflammation of the lining of the bronchial tubes, which carry air to and from the air sacs (alveoli) of the lungs. It’s characterized by a daily cough with excess mucus production.
Emphysema is a condition in which the alveoli at the end of the smallest air passages (bronchioles) of the lungs are destroyed as a result of the damaging exposure to cigarette smoke and other irritating gases and particulate matter.
How Dry Salt Therapy Works:
The multiple effects of dry salt therapy work to cleanse the respiratory system and speed up the elimination of toxins in the body. Inflammation is reduced due to natural properties of the inhaled salt particles, which also thin bronchial and nasal secretions. The smallest micro-particles of salt reach the lower respiratory system and work much like a toothbrush for the airways.
