Salt Therapy for Inflammation

Inflammation can cause all kinds of issues within the body. The dictionary defines inflammation as, “a localized physical condition in which part of the body becomes reddened, swollen, hot, and often painful, especially as a reaction to injury or infection.” It can be something you can see outside of the body when you sustain an immediate injury from the impact, or it can be completely internal, affecting joints, muscles, and tendons underneath the skin. Even the air passageways of your lungs can be inflamed. A host of different illnesses are due to inflammation in various parts of the body. Asthma for example is inflamed airways that sometimes make it harder to breathe. Arthritis is swollen joints that can cause pain all over the body. Respiratory illnesses cause inflammation in the sinus and nasal passage parts that can create congestion, and trouble breathing. In order to fight inflammation you have to know where it comes from.

What Exactly Is Inflammation?

Inflammation itself is the process by which the body’s white blood cells protect us from bacteria, infections, and even foreign organisms. Yet, with some illnesses your body’s response is to trigger inflammation as an immune response, even when there is nothing to fight. Those are certain types of autoimmune disorders. That is completely different from allergies, asthma, or other respiratory illnesses.

With allergies, and asthma inflammation is a fact of those illnesses. They can affect people in very different ways. Salt can be a great treatment for these issues to help alleviate some of the symptoms. Sodium chloride, which is salt, in a dry aerated room acts as an antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory to clear toxins and other viral causing agents from the nasal cavities and airways. Inflammation itself is greatly reduced because the salt is going to naturally attack the problem by reducing all bronchial swelling.
