World COPD Day

Did you know that this November 14th is WORLD COPD DAY! Organised by the Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease (GOLD), World COPD Day aims to raise awareness about chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and improve COPD care throughout the world. 

This years theme is ''It's Not Too Late.'' Many people don't realise they have COPD and go undiagnosed as they believe their symptoms are due to lack of fitness or getting older.

Here at 'salt of the earth' we are offering those with COPD the chance to visit our salt rooms on November 14th and get a free session. So spread the word and we hope to see you there.

According to World Health Organisation (WHO) nearly 3 million people die from COPD every year. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease(COPD) is a life-threatening lung disease that interferes with normal breathing – it is more than a "smoker's cough".

Salt therapy has enjoyed some unbelievable success in treating COPD patients. It has allowed COPD sufferers to 'enjoy life again', without the hindrance of being constantly out of breath and living in fear of picking up a cold or a chest infection. The beauty of salt therapy is, unlike many other COPD treatments, it is completely drug-free; the tiny salt particles in the air, which can reach the deepest part of the lung, clean respiratory system allowing patients to breathe more easily. 

'salt of the earth' will open its doors this Saturday the 10th of November and the official launch will take place on World COPD Day.

On the 14th of November the public are invited to come, view the facilities, talk to the staff, and get information on the treatments and packages available. They can also book their first session for FREE!
