Improving Your Health with Dry Salt Therapy
Dry salt therapy, also known as Halotherapy, is a natural and safe way to boost your health. Halotherapy is beneficial for your overall health by boosting your immune system and cleansing your nasal and respiratory pathways. It can help ease the symptoms of allergies, asthma, sinus and ear infections, lung disease and skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema. So how does it work?
During a salt session, you will relax in a zero gravity chair while breathing in dry salt micro-particles that are dispersed via a halogenerator. This machine cuts and grinds the salt so it can be dispersed into the air at a therapeutic level. You will inhale this dry salt aerosol improving your respiratory system’s own natural cleansing process. This will make it easier for the lungs and airways to expel mucus. Salt reduces inflammation and opens airway passages making it easier for you to breathe.
Salt is a well known decongestant. You will notice a decrease in the swelling of nasal mucus, which causes nasal blockage. Widening the airway passages restores your normal transport of mucous secretions. The salt is also able to penetrate deep into the internal passages of the ear, reducing inflammation, edema and bacteria in the eustachian tubes. Salt helps improve your sinus drainage and reduces infection in the pockets where bacteria often build due to collected fluid.
Lung Disease and Fibrosis
The progressive scarring of the lung tissue between and supporting the air sacs can cause lung stiffness. The ability to breathe and get enough oxygen into the bloodstream is affected by this scarring. Salt therapy increases your blood oxygen levels. The anti-histamine and anti-inflammatory properties from the salt help to relieve your inflammation in your airways and loosen thick mucus. The natural anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties help remove any pollutants or allergens that we all constantly breathing from our environment, which can cause irritation in the lungs and a persistent cough.
Psoriasis and Eczema
Inside the salt room, the dry salt falls on your skin and into your respiratory system. Inhaling these salt particles can clear your respiratory tract and normalize PH levels. Because the respiratory system and skin are connected, if you suffer from respiratory conditions you may have irritated and inflamed skin. Salt particles that are not inhaled inside the salt room fall onto your skin enhancing microcirculation, alleviate itching sensation and provide reparative and regenerative processes of the skin.
