Do you have asthma? It’s a disorder that’s very common, with an estimated 25 million people in the United States alone suffering from this breathing problem. That’s 1 in 12 people, according to the Center For Disease Control. There are a few different categories of how asthma occurs, but many people have what is called ‘allergy induced asthma.” This means that what they are allergic to can cause an asthma attack or other types of breathing problems and difficulties. It’s mainly from allergens in the environment like dust, dander, pollen, and even poor air quality from pollution. If you suffer from allergy-induced asthma there are ways to help improve your symptoms and attacks through The Salt Suite®. We are the premier provider of halotherapy or salt therapy in the South Florida area. Let’s look a the ways that salt therapy can help treat the symptoms of allergy induced asthma so that you can decide whether or not it’s right for you or someone you love.
How The Salt Suite® Can Help
The reason that the salt therapy rooms of The Salt Suite® work so well for asthma is that breathing in the salty air opens up the airways. That alone can help contribute to easier breathing on a daily basis when allergens in your environment are affecting your airways. When you have allergic asthma, it can be hard to tell what your triggers are going to be. You may notice times of the year where it’s worse than others.
When Allergens Are The Worse
When seasonal allergies are affecting your asthma, they can be worse in the more sensitive seasons, like spring for most of the country and the winter months in the southern states. You may notice that you need your inhaler more and breathing can be a more difficult challenge. Your chest might feel tight and taking a deep breath seems harder for you. This time of year can also lead to more full-blown asthma attacks where you need to use a rescue inhaler. That’s why finding more natural ways to manage the issue can help tremendously. The Salt Suite® is one of those methods that can reduce the symptoms during those seasonal allergy months.
Kids are also one of the biggest age groups to have allergic asthma. They are especially affected in the fall months when the weather changes. There was a study done that showed more children were hospitalized in those autumn months from asthma complications than during the summer. Overall the goal was to determine if seasonal variations affect asthma. The results clearly showed that it did.
That’s why at The Salt Suite® we have salt therapy rooms dedicated to both adults and children. If coming in a couple of times a week can make dealing with allergic asthma easier, then why not give it a shot? There are packages available that include both an adult and a child.

“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.”
