Benefits of Salt Therapy

Lung Infection
Lung infections are a medical condition which effect the lower airways. As a result of the infection the lungs begin to fill with liquid and mucus. This disrupts the intake of oxygen into the body which causes difficulty breathing and great deal of discomfort.

Cystic Fibrosis
A severe hereditary disease which impacts the whole body. The most serious symptoms are repeated lung and sinus infections which cause difficulty breathing. To date there is no method proven to fully cure the disease; however it was revealed in medical trials that Halotherapy can substantially alleviate the effects of the disease.

Psoriasis
A chronic skin disease which is most commonly caused by a sensitized immune system. The symptoms of the disease include patches of red, dry and flaky skin. Psoriasis most frequently occurs on the skin surrounding the elbows and knees. However in more severe cases, it can spread to cover the entire body. The natural antiseptic properties of Dead Sea salt help with psoriasis.

Allergies
A phenomenon which results from a disordered or weakened immune system. When a person who suffers from allergies is exposed to allergens, his/her body begins to create excess antibodies. This causes an extreme inflammatory reaction in the body. Symptoms of allergies might include: swelling of the nasal passage and the formation of nasal mucus, sinus infections, itching and redness of the eyes, narrowing of the airways due to inflamed airway passage walls, which can lead to shortness of breath, rashes, and other skin disorders. Salt therapy calms the excess inflammatory reaction.

Asthma
A common chronic disease of the respiratory system. Asthma is characterized by obstruction and construction of muscles of the upper airways. Both occurrences cause people to cough, wheeze and experience shortness of breath. Asthma is effected from genetic as well as environmental factors. People with a weak immune system are more likely to suffer from the disease. People who have used salt therapy report that they do not need to use their inhalers nearly so often.

Bronchitis
A medical condition in which the mucus membrane of the airways becomes inflamed. There are two forms of bronchitis; acute bronchitis and chronic bronchitis. Acute bronchitis is characterized by a dry or mucus filled cough as a result of a virus or a cold. Chronic bronchitis is characterized by a constant cough which lasts at least 3 months each year for a period of two years at least. The most common cause of chronic bronchitis is due to continuous damage of the airways from smoking or long term exposure to air pollution.

Sinusitis
The inflammation or infection of the sinuses caused by bacteria, allergies or a sensitized immune system. The most common symptoms include headaches, chronic mucus and fever. Occasionally Sinusitis can cause infections to the bones of the nasal cavity, forehead and eye socket.

Hay Fever
An allergic reaction caused from the inhalation of allergens such as pollens and house dust. People who suffer from hay fever generally have a sensitized immune system which releases antibodies in order to fight the allergens. When the antibody’s are stimulated by the allergens they release histamine which causes swelling, itching and the production of mucus. Salt therapy calms the excess inflammatory reaction.

Chronic Cold
A medical condition which results in nasal mucus, coughing, itching of the skin and occasionally fever. Chronic colds are primarily caused due to a dysfunctional immune system. People who suffer from a weak immune system are more likely to become infected by viruses or bacteria.

Atopic Dermatitis
Atopic Dermatitis is a skin disease with symptoms such as dry and irritated skin accompanied by an itching sensation. In many cases the continuous itching of the skin, especially amongst kids, causes wounds and an increased likelihood of bacterial infection. People who suffer from atopic dermatitis are easily effected by allergens in the air and in foods. Many people find natural salt therapy a better alternative to topical creams and systemic pharmaceuticals.

COPD
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease is a disease which disrupts the flow of air to and from the lungs due to the inflammation of the airways. In most cases COPD is the result of continuous damage to the lungs from either smoking or exposure to excessive amounts of air pollution.
