Breathe Easy

Breathing Overview

Breathing is an essential part of life, and most times, automatic. Imagine having trouble every time you breathe because of a breathing condition like asthma, COPD, smoker’s cough/emphysema, sinusitis, allergies, or an upper respiratory infection.  

Salt therapy for Breathing conditions

Salt therapy is a complementary natural alternative to effectively manage your symptoms from allergies, asthma, bronchitis, COPD, sinusitis, smoker’s cough and upper respiratory infections.

Following a regimen of regular salt therapy visits will provide ongoing clearing of mucus and toxins as well as lowered inflammation in the airways – resulting in cleaner, healthier lungs. Results may vary between clients and we recommend that you discuss the use of salt therapy with your doctor.

Breathing Issues

Asthma

Asthma is described as a hypersensitivity reaction where the immune system triggers an inflammatory reaction that damages the airways to protect your body from allergens. Salt has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties that help clean your body from these allergens like mold, dust, pollens, and smoke – reducing your chances of an asthma attack.

Smokers Cough/Emphysema

When you have smoker’s cough/emphysema, you may experience shortness of breath and confusion due to the lack of oxygen. Halotherapy helps open the damaged air passages and clears them of harmful toxins, allowing you to breathe a little easier.

COPD

At The Salt Suite® we are dedicated to helping people alleviate their COPD at any stage of the illness. With less coughing and thinning of the mucus, you’ll find that less respiratory infections are possible, and you’ll breathe better.

Sinusitis

Sinusitis is caused by the applied pressure on the wall of the sinus cavity due to an infection or a build-up of mucus. The salty air in our suites can help cleanse your nasal cavity, helping to manage your body’s mucus production and nasal inflammation.

Allergies

Salt therapy soothes your airways and absorbs the irritants and allergens lining them. Therefore, the salt helps to lower your body’s immune response to allergens and inflammation, lowering your overall symptoms. With regular exposure to salt therapy, some people tend to notice less reliance on over-the-counter antihistamine medications over time.

Upper Respiratory Infection

Ever suffered from an upper respiratory infection? Boost your immune system and relieve sinus pressure with salt therapy. Your nasal passages will begin to open naturally, without the use of nasal sprays and decongestants. Not only are you alleviating your symptoms, but the salt is also working to help fight the infection and lessens the tendency of it coming back.

Breathing Benefits

Reduce symptoms of allergies, asthma, and respiratory issues

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to be less dependent on your inhaler? To be able to take deep breaths and feel less tired and wheezy? Sometimes traditional medicine can be harsh on your body. Salt therapy is a 100% natural alternative that complements traditional medicine and often results in clients using fewer doses or few numbers of harsher medicines and steroids.

Clean nasal cavities
and sinuses

As the number of bacteria increase and spread throughout your body from a cold or sinus infection, your symptoms begin to worsen. The salty air in our suites is charged with detoxifying minerals, that work on a molecular level to cleanse your body from the inside out, clearing your sinuses from bacteria and thinning out mucus to breathe better. How does it work? Salt has antibacterial properties that effectively drain the water out of bacteria. Without water, bacteria cannot function properly, ultimately, the water destroys it.

Eliminate
contaminants

Salt is antiviral and antimicrobial, too – meaning it destroys or inhibits the growth of toxins, viruses, and pathogens in your lungs. When your body is hit with a virus that affects your respiratory system, it acts as an agent that kills or suppresses the virus. It works by “boosting cells,” activating a defense that stops them from replicating or reproducing. When salt enters your respiratory system, it absorbs toxic moisture, cleanses, and clears away excess mucus, and gets rid of harmful bacteria.

Allow for a better night’s sleep

Colds and allergies can worsen snoring due to nasal congestion restricting your airflow. Breathe in the dry salt and get rid of the mucus and toxins built-up in your respiratory system to enjoy a good night’s rest.

Open airways

As you breathe the dry salt particles deep into your lungs, it’s absorbed into your airways, clearing them from harmful particles that can cause them to narrow. The inhaled salt then widens your airways, allowing you to breathe easily.

Anti-inflammatory benefits

Salt is a natural anti-inflammatory substance. Inflammation occurs when your body’s white blood cells are protecting you from bacteria, infections, and foreign organisms. Salt can be used to alleviate this inflammation, as it clears toxins and other viral causing agents from your nasal cavities and airways. The salt naturally attacks the problem in your lungs and nasal cavities by reducing all bronchial swelling.
