Salt Therapy has beneficial effects in the treatment of:

Asthma

Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disease of the airways with viable and recurring symptoms, reversible airflow obstruction, and bronchospasm. Symptoms include wheezing, coughing, chest tightness, and shortness of breath. It is thought to be caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors.

Mainstream treatment of acute symptoms is usually with an inhaled short-acting beta-2 agonist inhaler (such as salbutamol).

The sterile, pure air of the salt room, along with the ability of the diffused micro particles of salt to penetrate into the bronchi and kill bacteria and viruses, salt therapy has proven to be beneficial for asthma. Based on clinical studies, the inhaled salty air has bactericide, anti-inflammatory properties, reducing inflammation in the whole respiratory tract, absorbing oedema from the mucosal lining the airways leading to widening of the airway passages, restoring the normal transport of mucus and unclogging blockages in the bronchi and bronchioles, allowing rapid elimination of the residual tar and foreign allergens, all of these in a natural process.

Hay fever

Hay fever is caused by breathing in pollen particles and by pollen getting into the eyes. You can get hay fever at any time from early spring to late summer, depending on which pollen or pollens you're allergic to. The pollens most likely to cause problems in early spring are those from trees such as the silver birch, ash, oak and London plane.

Grasses pollinate during mid-summer from May to August. The most profusely pollinating grasses are timothy, rye, cocksfoot, meadow and fescue. Occasionally, in late summer and autumn, weeds such as nettles and dock as well as mugwort and plantain can trigger hay fever. The condition tends to occur in atopic allergy-prone families and usually starts in the early teens, with symptoms peaking in the 20s.

Based on clinical studies, the inhaled salty air has bactericide, anti-inflammatory properties, reducing inflammation in the whole respiratory tract, absorbing oedema from the mucosal lining the airways leading to widening of the airway passages, restoring the normal transport of mucus and unclogging blockages in the bronchi and bronchioles, allowing rapid elimination of the residual tar and foreign allergens, all of these in a natural process. It also desensitises the hypersensitive mast cell response in the lungs.

Nervousness, Poor Concentration, Sleeping Disorders, ADHD

Salt has the natural ability to balance the excessive positively charged particles in the atmosphere, by binding the positive ions with negative ions. Therefore, the neutralising force of salt can cancel out positive charged harmful electromagnetic vibrations in our environment (electro-smog), as well as in our body. Hence, salt therapy has de-stressing, relaxing effects; it is beneficial for calming the nervous system.

Unhealthy Skin, Acne, Eczema

The skin is a mirror to our internal body and foremost, our intestines. Skin irritations and eczema which appear around the neckline, on the face, especially around the mouth area, usually indicate disrupted intestinal flora. The body cannot eliminate toxins and excretes them through the skin. A change of diet, together with a colon cleanse, can help to eliminate underlying causes. At the same time it is also important to drink plenty of spring water, low in minerals, in order to flush out the waste material. Salt therapy will miraculously support this process!

Psoriasis

Psoriasis is a genetically inherited disease and usually doesn't manifest until adulthood. The accelerated growth of the top layer of skin forms red spots, which are usually covered with a thick layer of white flakes. Usually, it takes 28 days for our epidermal layer to be fully replaced; the time it takes for the deep skin cells to move through to the top layer. For people suffering from psoriasis, this process happens in only 4 days. This can also cause severe itching.

Even though it is considered to be a genetically inherited disease, Salt Therapy can completely heal the disorder, in some cases. An alkaline-forming, vegan diet, in combination with Halotherapy can perform wonders!

Snoring

Salt Therapy can also reduce snoring and facilitate better sleep by clearing the airways in the pharyngeal area. Oedema of the nasal mucosa, pharynx and soft palate, which cause nasal obstruction and snoring, can be reduced by inhaling the salty air, leading to widening of the airway passages in the nose and the tubes of the sinuses; improving drainage and reducing snoring.

Ear Infections

Oedema of the Eustachian tubes, which can cause ear infections, can be diminished by Salt Therapy salt particles, leading to widening of the airways, improved drainage and better aeration behind the tympanic membrane of the ear, equalising pressure.

Other Health Conditions Halotherapy can be applied for:

  • Long acute diseases of the upper airways
  • Bronchiectasis
  • Chronic diseases of the airways
  • Chronic pharyngitis
  • Chronic tonsillitis or inflammation of the tonsils
  • Chronic maxillary sinusitis
  • Chronic inflammation of the pharyngeal tonsil
  • Relapsing pneumonia
  • Chronic and acute otitis
  • Frequent viral infections
  • Polinosis or hay rhinitis
  • Atopic dermatitis
  • Putrid dermal infection
  • COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease)
  • Cystic Fibrosis
