5 Ways Salt Therapy Helps with Allergies

Allergies could be very discomforting, with the constant runny nose, sneezes, itchy teary eyes, and recurrent cough that come with the condition, you could have a bad day without treatment.
An allergy is an exaggerated immune response to certain triggers which are called allergens. Examples of these allergens include foods such as nuts, milk, and eggs, pollen, insect bites, mold, animal fur, dust mite, pet dander, and cold air. Exposure to these agents in some individuals who are “hypersensitive” to them results in release of certain a chemical called histamine which results in the symptoms.

Salt therapy or halotherapy is a natural treatment which reduces the symptoms and frequency of episodes of these allergies.

Here are some ways halotherapy helps with allergies:

1. Reduces Inflammation in the airways

Our salt rooms are dry, around 50% humidity. This allows the dry salt particles to travel deep into your sinuses and respiratory system. These particles help reduce the migration of inflammatory cells to the area, lowering your symptoms.

2. Antibacterial

Bacteria may trigger or complicate an allergy. The microscopic dry salt particles reduce bacterial growth and multiplication. In addition, salt particles also absorb bacteria, clearing them off the airway.

3. Promotes adequate airflow and Sleep

The salt particles break up the mucus plugs in your airways and sinuses, allowing more space for air to flow through. In addition, this results in less sleep disturbance as air tends to flow freely during sleep.

4. Flushes out Triggers for Allergy

Salt therapy soothes your airways and absorbs the irritants and allergens lining your airways, therefore, lowering the immune response and inflammation, lowering your symptoms.

5. Relieves Discomfort

With sinusitis, comes headaches and facial pain, as well as runny nose. Headaches and facial pain in sinusitis are caused by mucus collection in the sinuses. Distension of these sinuses, as a result of mucus accumulation, result in pain. Salt therapy causes break down of mucus and clearance from your airway, resolving the symptoms.

The Salt Suite® recreates the microclimate of a salt cave with moisture-free environments. The temperatures are set to about 76°F (20°C) and patients go in for 45 minutes sessions. A device called the halogenerator grinds salt particles and releases them as dry aerosols.

Salt therapy has immense benefits for people with allergies. When you visit The Salt Suite® regularly, we can not only help eliminate your current symptoms but also prevent future irritation from airborne allergens.

“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 micro particles 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.”

Amazon Effect on Healthcare

I am guilty of what I call the ‘Amazon Prime Effect’. I ordered magnesium capsules at noon and by 4:00 pm they were neatly lying at my doorstep. I barely had to crack open the front door to retrieve my order.
