Thousands of Americans suffer from this disease, which has no cure. The disease is managed by treating the symptoms. If you or someone you love has cystic fibrosis, the beneficial effects of salt therapy are a good option. The salt room sessions will open the respiratory tracts and aid breathing. Cleansing of nasal passages and bronchial tubes takes place naturally as the dry salt aerosol moves through the nose, throat and lungs. Coughing is soothed away and the lungs feel clear.
Clogged, even painful sinuses are sometimes a condition found in cystic fibrosis sufferers. The salt rooms facilitate the draining of the sinuses, relieving pressure. The longevity of the effects of the treatments varies by individual but typically the sessions are needed once every week to every three weeks to prevent symptoms from returning.
The excessive mucous production found in cystic fibrosis patients is what leads to frequent chest infections and shortness of breath. The clearing away of mucous as a result of a salt therapy session means fewer infections. This is an ideal way to enhance or supplement traditional treatment and medicines. But of course, you should try it to see if it’s right for you. The Salt Suite offers a Free Introductory Session – just call to make an appointment. Relief is available!
