What Is Inflammation?

Inflammation causes problems in the body. When you consider what inflammation does to people with respiratory conditions, such as COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), chronic bronchitis, asthma, or allergies, the airways can be constricted when they are inflamed. It can make breathing difficult and uncomfortable. There are ways to treat this issue and one of the best ones is through halotherapy. It’s non-invasive with specialized wellness centers, called the Salt Suite, all over South Florida to treat many different conditions that cause inflammation.

What Is Inflammation?

Inflammation, in general, is your body’s response to injury, a defense against foreign invaders (allergens, viruses, bacteria), or repairs damaged tissues. In those with respiratory problems, airway inflammation along the lungs and the bronchial tubes is a very common occurrence. You can treat the symptoms and inflammation by breathing in the salty air of the halotherapy rooms at the Salt Suite.

Salt Therapy Helps Inflammation In The Lungs

By breathing in the salty air particles, the end goal is to allow the antibacterial and anti-inflammatory action of the salt to purify your airways. It may also loosen mucus to reduce sinus problems, allowing you to breathe easier, be less stuffy, and cough less.

Salt also removes pathogens and can reduce IgE levels in the body, which are known to cause immune system oversensitivity. It’s that immune over-sensitivity that leads to problematic inflammation.

Opens Up Airways And Bronchial Tubes

For those that have COPD, emphysema, or bronchitis you can submit to halotherapy in order to open up the airways and bronchial tubes. Overall, there is the possibility of symptom improvement in those types of respiratory ailments when you have repeated treatments each week. Each treatment lasts around 45 minutes and most people find it helpful to come in a few times per week. There are monthly plans available that will save you money in the long run with your salt treatments.

“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.”
