How Salt Therapy Helps Those Suffering from Asthma

Salt Therapy is incredibly helpful in managing symptoms of asthma as it helps widen your airways as well as humidifies and fluidizes the bronchial secretions in the bronchial tree, thereby reducing bronchiospasm. Antimicrobial, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory salt lines the walls of your airways, helping to clear mucus, allergens and other asthma triggers. An asthma patient may expect to start breathing easily after just a few sessions. These naturally therapeutic sessions will also decrease your coughing and your dependence on asthma inhalers and drugs.

Dry sodium chloride aerosol containing therapeutic particles of 1-5 microns in size are blown into our salt-covered caves by a halogenerator. In order to treat asthma, the environment is saturated with dry sodium chloride aerosol at a mass concentration varying from 1-16 mg/m3 . Typically asthma treatment involves drugs which include steroids that may have harmful side effects. Salt therapy has no side effects or negative interaction with other medication and is safe for all ages.
