Inhalers and Salt Therapy

Asthma affects about 1 in 12 people in the United States alone. That’s around 25 million people who suffer from this lifelong disease, which causes trouble with a person’s breathing. Those that have the illness sometimes are prescribed an inhaler by their doctor. We at The Salt Suite® treat a number of people with asthma to halotherapy in our salt rooms. It’s not meant to take the place of your doctor directed treatment though. Salt therapy is meant to be a natural way to help with the symptoms of your illness.

Can Salt Therapy Replace My Inhaler?

No, it’s not going to replace your rescue inhaler if you have asthma. Your inhaler contains vital corticosteroids that help to regulate your breathing during an asthma attack that comes on suddenly.

Using salt therapy on a regular basis just might make the symptoms of your asthma and breathing issue become less of a problem over time. You may even need your inhaler less often. That’s the goal anyway of submitting to salt therapy sessions with us at The Salt Suite® when you or someone you love suffers from asthma.

“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 in the air by halo generators. In our separate children’s room kids play in a big sand box except with salt on the walls and floor and play while breathing in the dry salt air.”
