How Does Salt Therapy Help Allergies?

When you have allergies some of the symptoms can drive you crazy! People experience seasonal and everyday allergens differently, but the symptoms of headaches, stuffy nasal passageways, itchy eyes, and trouble breathing are some the possible ways allergies may affect your body. They can also be worse at different times of the year or you may have issues with allergies all the time. When medication isn’t doing enough to curb your symptoms and make you feel better, it may be time to look towards a different solution. One that involves salt. So how does salt therapy or halotherapy help allergies? Let’s take a look!

Some Common Allergens to Look At

Outdoor allergens like ragweed, pollen, and grass can be more bothersome at certain times of the year such as spring or summer. This is commonly referred to as “hay fever.” There are also indoor allergens to consider as well, like pet dander, dust, and mold. What you are allergic too can only be determined by a trained allergy specialist or doctor, but if you have allergies you probably know the misery that they can cause in your body.

How the Salt Suite Can Help

Salt therapy or halotherapy is a method of breathing in dry salt particles that can help bring some relief for those with allergies. Salt itself acts as an anti-inflammatory agent. By taking it in through the air, it’s going to help to remove those airborne pollen agents that are in your system. This will reduce the lgE levels that cause your system to react to the allergens. With repeated treatments, you’ll find that your sinuses begin to open up and a reduction in symptoms is possible.

Start With Weekly Sessions for Allergies

“During a typical adult session, customers put their feet up in a comfortable leather chair rest or read and breathe in a dry salt aerosol. The microparticles are blown into the air by halo generators. In our separate children’s room kids play in a big sandbox except with salt on the walls and floor and play while breathing in the dry salt air.”
