What is Salt Therapy?
Salt Therapy is a natural, drug-free, holistic therapy using microparticles of salt to promote better, healthier skin. Salt therapy also helps to alleviate symptoms of many respiratory and skin conditions.
How does Salt Therapy Work?
Salt has the following properties:
- Mucolytic effects: loosens excessive mucus and speeds up mucociliary transport.
- Removes pathogen agents.
- Reduces immune system oversensitivity.
In salt therapy rooms, the salt is grounded into tiny microparticles by a halo generator and then dispersed into the salt room or bed.
People inhale the dry, salt-enriched air deep down into the lungs. The salt therapy widens the airways and loosens the mucus, reduces inflammation and clears mucus. The process makes you breath easier. Symptoms are often reduced, sometimes for up to 12 months. While the air particles that land on your skin, help to balance pH and induce a reparative and regenerative process in the surface.
Are there any side effects?
Since dry salt therapy is 100% natural and drug-free, there are no adverse side effects.
How many times should you do?
Recommendations for long-term results is around 20 sessions. Courses should be frequent, about 2-3 a week is a suggested amount
Based on client satisfaction the treatment is 75-98% efficient. A normal airway and symptoms disappearance noted in most patients after a course of dry salt. Most people do 1-2 Salt Therapy courses a year, but people might come for more if they are feeling weak and want to regenerate.
What does it help?
While salt therapy helps with numerous conditions, you should not stop taking your medication during salt therapy. Use it as a complementary treatment only. It most cases it can :
- Reduce the need for inhalers and antibiotics
- Make your breathing easier after just a few sessions
- Improve lung function
- Reduce the number of hospital admissions
- Alleviate sneezing, coughing, and shortness of breath
- Clear mucus and sticky phlegm from the lungs
- Increase the resistance to respiratory tract diseases
- Strengthen your immune system
- Prolong remission times
While some people do not notice improvement, it does work wonders for others. I think you should be a bit of a skeptic when it comes to new health fads( example – Clean Eating. It started as a fad, but it quickly turned into something more ) , but you should defiantly try it, and see if it works for you.
