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

Respiratory Benefits

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.

Eliminate Contaminants

Salt is antibacterial, antiviral, and antimicrobial – meaning it destroys or inhibits the growth of toxins and pathogens in your lungs. As it enters your respiratory system, it absorbs toxic moisture, cleanses, and clears away excess mucus, and gets rid of harmful bacteria.

Antiviral Benefits

When your body is hit with a virus that affects your respiratory system, salt acts as an agent that kills or suppresses the virus. It works by “boosting cells,” activating an antiviral defense that stops it from replicating or reproducing.

Antimicrobial Benefits

Salt is widely known for its antibacterial benefits – that’s why it’s been used as a preservative. How does it work? Salt kills bacteria by effectively draining the water out of them. Without water, bacteria cannot function properly, ultimately, destroying it.

Anti-inflammatory Benefits

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.
