The Benefits of Salt Therapy: Making Feeling Better Easy

            As the medical field advances further, we continue to run into hurdles that set us backwards. For example, in order to develop a new antibiotic, it takes millions if not billions of dollars and over a decade’s time. This, along with the steep increase of antibiotic resistance seen in many bacterial strains, developing new antibiotics is not very feasible and is decreasing rapidly. So what are more stable and reliable treatment options? Natural treatments are becoming a more favorable option, as they naturally exist in the world and do not need to undergo extensive development processes. Salt therapy is a safe and natural treatment that is a great therapeutic option for those suffering from any respiratory condition.

            Respiratory illnesses are fairly common, affecting hundreds of millions of people around the world. Although respiratory illnesses encompass a very large number of diverse conditions, varying in their severity, symptoms and length of illness, one thing most have in common is that salt therapy is an effective treatment option. There are many benefits of salt therapy:

  • It has anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal effects. This facilitates the killing and clearance of any invading pathogens, speeding up recovery from infections and reducing any associated inflammatory response.
  • Increases mucus clearance within the lungs and nasal cavity. The salt particles act to draw water into the airways, resulting in a more fluid mucus and allowing it to be cleared from the airways more easily. This both opens up airways and better clear pathogens and debris.
  • Increased resistance to infections. The combination of the positive effects the salt has on the respiratory tract results in a stronger ability for the body to prevent infections.
  • Increases blood oxygenation. Helping in opening and clearing airways the salt aerosol penetrates deep into the lungs, to alveoli, where the oxygen intake takes place. This promotes better bloodstream oxygenation and better organ functions, with increased well-being.
  • It lowers blood pressure. The salt particles contain potassium, and when inhaled, the potassium can enter the blood stream and stabilize blood pressure.

Salt therapy can be effective as a treatment for a large variety of respiratory conditions, whether chronic or acute, mild or severe; it is also very useful in prevention and strengthening of the respiratory system. The most common conditions it can be used as a therapeutic option for are: asthma, allergies, cold and flu, bronchitis, cystic fibrosis, sinusitis, hay fever, ear infections, emphysema, chronic bronchitis, pneumonia and COPD. While primarily a therapy for conditions of the respiratory tract, it is also effective for dermatitis, acne, psoriasis and eczema, as the salt can also be absorbed through the skin.

There are many benefits of salt therapy that can help treat and relieve symptoms for many respiratory and skin conditions. Salt therapy is also known to provide a general sense of well-being to individuals undergoing the treatment. So why wait? You can get your very own salinizer machine to undergo the therapy at home. It’s as easy as that!

Salt Machine: Helping You Breathe Easier

Do you suffer from a respiratory condition? Do you have trouble breathing? Do you often get lung infections? If yes to any of these questions, Saltair is right for you.

What is Saltair? It is a salt machine that uses ultrasonic frequency vibrations to produce and release microscopic salt particles into the surrounding air. How is this beneficial? The salt particles being released into the air increase the amount of salt you are inhaling. This increases the amount of salt in your lungs, which has many health benefits, most beneficial for people suffering from chronic or acute respiratory conditions. Some of the positive effects this therapy provides are:

  • It dilutes mucus, making it much easier to clear any trapped debris and/or pathogens within the lungs.
  • It has anti-microbial, anti-fungal and anti-viral effects, helping the body kill or neutralize any invading pathogens.
  • It decreases inflammation and helps regulate a proper immune response within the lungs.
  • Promotes better sleep and blood oxygenation
  • It helps to normalize blood pressure and increases well-being.

Additionally, the Saltair device is completely silent, so you can ensure it will not disrupt your sleeping. With the salt particles being released throughout the day or night wherever you may be close to the unit, you get your therapy without even knowing or feeling that it’s even happening.

Salt therapy is a natural treatment and it has NO side effects. When using a salt machine, not only are you getting very many health benefits, but you are not harming your body in any way, as there are no side effects and no negative interactions. The negative ions of salt generated by the Saltair machine neutralize the airborne pollutants and allergens, cleansing also the air you breathe.  Your whole family can benefit from the wonderful benefits that salt therapy can offer.

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease: Please Help Me Breath!

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease is a particularly nasty lung condition that escalates in stages amongst those with emphysema and/or chronic bronchitis. 

Tragically, emphysema slowly destroys the air sacs in your lungs, which ultimately interferes with your outward air flow capacity. Bronchitis on the other hand, causes inflammation and narrowing of the bronchial tubes. The narrowing allows mucus to build up causing congestion.

When COPD is diagnosed in addition to a pre-existent condition such as emphysema or bronchitis, breathing can become almost impossible. Symptoms may be mild at first, beginning with a cough, some congestion and wheezing.  Regular medical checkups are absolutely necessary as you can easily dismiss these symptoms at first as having a simple cold 

4-Stages-of-COPD

Symptom Stages

Stage 1

  • mild shortness of breath, especially after exercise
  • mild but chronic cough
  • needing to clear your throat often, especially upon waking

Stage 2

  • shortness of breath after mild exercise such as walking up a flight of stairs
  • wheezing
  • tightness in the chest
  • chronic cough, which may or may not produce mucus
  • Chronic chest congestion
  • Contracting frequent colds or other respiratory infections
  • reduced energy

Stage 3

  • Chronic fatigue
  • swelling in the lower extremities such as feet, ankles and legs
  • Decreased appetite

Stage 4

  • bluish or gray fingernails and lips due to low oxygen levels in your blood
  • trouble catching your breath
  • confusion or faintness due to decreased oxygen levels to the brain
  • racing heart beat

Cause

Smoking is the number one cause of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease and is most commonly diagnosed in patients over the age of 40. You can also develop COPD if you’re exposed to toxic fumes from chemicals or asbestos in the workplace. Long-term exposure to air pollution and inhaling dust has also been known to cause COPD among those with allergies.

Treatment

 Although COPD is considered to be a chronic condition, it can be managed and treated in a number of different ways to improve your quality of life. The most common forms of treatment are doctor prescribed bronchodilators to help relax muscles in the airways, gluco-corticosteroids to reduce the inflammation, and at later stages oxygen therapy is common. Surgery is usually the last form of treatment available and is often needed to remove large air sacs from the lungs, or in extreme cases a full lung transplant.

To lower the risk of contracting additional respiratory infections, your doctor will likely add vaccinations to your treatment plan. A yearly flu shot, pneumococcal vaccine, and possibly a tetanus booster helps protect the lungs from damage against infections.

Alternative Treatment

Although there is no cure currently for COPD, alternative treatments do exist that can help to increase lung air capacity and regulate breathing. Environmental treatments such as the Saltair home salt therapy device have been shown to be very effective in easing COPD symptoms.

Saltair works by releasing tiny microscopic particles of salt into the air over a 7-8 hour period. As the salt is inhaled, the inflammation in the bronchial tubes eases allowing for clear breathing. These inhalable particles of salt help clear the mucus, reduce inflammation, and naturally boost your respiratory immune system over time. Home salt therapy can act not only to treat the common symptoms and causes of COPD, but can also act as a preventative agent in your environment by naturally cleansing the air.

Asthma And The Benefits Of Salt Therapy

Asthma is a chronic disease involving the airways in the lungs. These airways, known as bronchial tubes, allow air to come in and out of the lungs. There is no definite determinant as to who will contract Asthma, but we do know people with a family history of allergies or asthma are more prone to developing asthma than other members of the population.

If you have Asthma, your airways are always going to be somewhat inflamed. An asthma attack will occur however when something triggers the onset of your symptoms. The airways then become even more swollen as the muscles around the airways tighten. This makes it difficult for air to move in and out of the lungs, causing symptoms such as coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath and chest tightness to occur.

Remedy for asthma

Certain triggers are often caused by allergies and exposure to allergens. Irritants and allergens such as pet dander, dust mites, pollens or molds would be considered triggers to those with Allergic Asthma. Non-allergic type triggers would include smoke, pollution, cold air, exercise, or changes in weather.

The most common symptom of Asthma is wheezing. This is a scratchy or whistling sound that happens when you breathe. Other common symptoms include
•    Shortness of breath
•    Chronic coughing
•    Trouble sleeping due to coughing or wheezing

Although Asthma is considered to be a chronic condition, it can be managed and treated in a number of different ways to improve your quality of life. The most common forms of treatment are doctor prescribed cortal-steroid inhalers that acts quickly to opens airways.     

Alternative treatments that exist include breathing exercises to increase lung air capacity and regulate breathing rhythms when onset of an attack occurs. Environmental treatments such as using Saltair – Home Salt Therapy device have also been proven to be successful in reducing environmental triggers that induce asthma attacks and ease asthma symptoms.

Saltair device works by releasing tiny microscopic particles of salt into the air. As the salt particles are inhaled, the inflammation in the bronchial tubes eases allowing for clear breathing. These inhalable particles of salt help clear the mucus, reduce inflammation, fight infection and naturally ease your symptoms while boosting your respiratory immune system over time. Home salt therapy can act not only to ease the common symptoms and causes of Asthma, but can also act as a preventative agent in your environment for those at risk for an allergic attack

Using the Saltair – Home Salt Therapy device, on a daily basis, will rid your home or work environment of pesky inhalable irritants, pathogens or allergens that act as triggers to those with Allergic Asthma. Pet dander, dust mites, pollens and molds are all common allergic triggers that exist in the home or work environment that a Saltair device can help with. At the same time, it does its work inside of the respiratory system, helping to breathe better and improve well-being.

While Halotherapy Has Immense Benefits There Are Also Side Effects

Salt is wonderful. Not only does it improve taste of food, it has vital therapeutic properties specifically indicated for people with conditions such as asthma, allergies, COPD, ear infections, skin conditions and general debility. Salt can cure where allopathic medications do not work. It can protect and it can heal.

Halo therapy has a number of benefits in various conditions:

• For diseases of the respiratory system where the air passageways become inflamed and constricted as well as filled with mucus, salt therapy proves invaluable. Salt reduces inflammation, reduces soreness, expels mucus and dust particles and brings about relief.

• People affected by dermatitis, eczema, acne, psoriasis and edema can benefit by salt therapy. Breathing in salt air as well as contact of salt with the skin brings about vast improvements in intractable conditions.

• Salt has a relaxing effect not only on the tissues but also on the mind. Spend some time breathing in salt laden air and you feel better, at peace and relaxed.

Salt therapy side

• Salt improves oxygenation and aids in recuperation of the lungs, especially beneficial for smokers. It also helps athletes improve their endurance. For those with cystic fibrosis, salt helps clear up the lungs and prevents infections.

• Salt can improve digestion and it can improve the immune system, helping people with digestive troubles and asthma or respiratory illnesses.

The trick to getting the benefits of salt is to inhale it or consume it in just the right quantity. This is achieved by the use of Saltair – Home Salt Therapy, an ultrasonic salinizer that disperses fine particles of salt in minute quantities into the air. Salt touches the skin and the person inhales salt. It has external and internal benefits when applied this way. One can breathe in such air 24 hours without any adverse effect.

However, there are treatment centers where patients can sit in artificial salt rooms that have all walls and floor covered in salt and where the air may be supersaturated with salt. Spending extended hours in such salt laden atmospheres could do more harm than good. This type of salt therapy may have adverse impacts. In an artificial salt room the quantity of salt aerosol needs to be strictly controlled.

If not, Salt therapy side effects are few and they can easily be avoided.

• One of the main complaints of people who spend more time in poorly controlled artificial salt rooms is that salt causes irritation of the eyes and eyes become red and swollen. This may be a temporary condition and it is remedied by spending shorter time in salt rooms or by using Saltair salinizer at home.

• Salt may cause conjunctivitis but it is rare.

• Spending more time in salt saturated air could lead to increase in coughing because too much mucus is expelled at once.

• Artificial salt room therapy may be contraindicated in thyroidism, lung cancer, heart disease, tuberculosis, hypertension, intoxication and contagious diseases.

• Salt rooms are usually shared with other people who are usually sick.

These issues are noticed in only a few cases where salt rooms failed controlling the environment. In general, salt, when inhaled in artificial salt rooms that are well controlled in regards of ventilation system, size and amount of salt particles dispersed in the air, the time of exposure – it will provide great help in all respiratory conditions. People with chronic respiratory conditions will need multiple salt room therapy sessions for lasting results. This can be very expensive. In home salt therapy using Saltair by Halosense, minute quantities of salt is dispersed into the air for long-term breathing. This way there are no side-effects and no interaction with any medication or salt free diet.

What Type of Salt You Should Use in Salt Therapy

Many people are asking us about the type of salt we use in salt therapy, so we decided to write about this.

Types of rock salt

Salt comes in many types but people are most familiar with the regular table salt and not as much with other types. Beside the regular table salt, there is a huge market with sea salt. Table salt and sea salt are highly processed and they contain lots of additives as flowing agents and not our best options. Sea salt may also contain pollutants depending on the places where it was harvested. However, many people are not aware of this.

Table salt is mainly sodium chloride combined with iodine such as potassium iodide or cuprous iodide, stabilizers for the iodine to prevent the potassium iodide from breaking down into iodine, and anti-caking agents. The anti-caking agents includes: calcium silicateferric ammonium citratemagnesium silicatealuminum calcium silicatecalcium phosphate, to name a few.  Salt is hygroscopic, meaning it has the property to absorb water from the air. This water dissolves the salt, making the salt granules to stick together into a solid mass.  An anti-caking additive, such as calcium silicate has the property of absorbing moisture from the air better than salt, and it does not dissolve in the water it absorbs. This help in protecting the salt from caking, and ensures it flows freely. 

Usually all salt used in industry have these additives in different concentrations. 

In salt therapy we use grey rock salt extracted using classical mining technology; the rock salt is only crushed preserving all the natural minerals in it. Sodium chloride together with the natural occurring minerals in rock salt have a synergetic effect on the respiratory system, providing great health results in salt therapy.

Saltair for Salt Room Therapy in Canada Brings Immense and Immediate Relief in Respiratory Conditions

Speleotherapy is gaining ground as one of the best holistic ways to treat chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases. Speleotherapy means the use of salt caves and its climate for therapeutic treatment of chronic respiratory conditions. The basis is that inside a salt cave the air is full of fine particles of salt. Anyone with any respiratory affliction, if he spends long-enough time in salt caves, obtains great relief. Salt is the main active agent. Equally important is the low humidity in caves and the cool temperature. Both have a synergistic effect in speleotherapy, helping salt particles stay suspended in the air and to reach the alveoli.

Patients with various ailments ranging from rhinitis to COPD have expressed a great sense of relief after spending few hours in such natural salt caves. The same conditions have been created in clinics offering salt room therapy in Canada. Quite a few clinics have sprung up across the country. Small clinics may have one salt room that recreates the salt cave conditions with the right amount of humidity, temperature and a higher concentration of salt particles suspended in the air, to compensate for the length of exposure. Common table salt is not recommended as it is highly processed and such therapeutic centers use specially sourced rock salt. Anyone down with allergic reactions, flu, cold or even chronic asthma or COPD may visit such clinics, relax inside for an hour. Some clinics even have a separate salt therapy room for children, complete with books, toys and games. Going by the dictum that there cannot be too much of a good thing, some such clinics go overboard and saturate the air to an extent that salt coats the hair, body and clothes of people who visit the clinic for treatment. The salt room environment should be carefully controlled for proper health results.

Salt room environment can be recreated inside homes or even workplaces. Saltair- Home Salt Therapy device from salinetherapy.com is a small device that uses ultrasonics to disperse rock salt micro-particles in the atmosphere inside your room. Minute but effective quantities of micronized salt are released constantly and keep the air full of salt particles.

It is mainly recommended to use it during the night sleep but can be used during the day as well. The salt particles penetrate deep into your lungs, kills bacteria, removes mucus and keeps you breathing easy. Salt also forms higher amounts of negative ions that purify air, stick to viruses and bacteria and neutralize them before they enter your respiratory tract. This type of salt room therapy is not only beneficial for respiratory conditions but also for ear infections, eye infections and skin infections. It is a small, inexpensive device but will change the quality of your life.

Effective and Easy to Use Salt Therapy at Home Using an Air Salinizer

The beneficial effects of salt are known since ages. People with chronic bronchitis, sinusitis, emphysema and asthma found that the salty sea air found in coastal areas gives them relief. It is also an age old practice to spend time within salt caverns and breathe in salt-laden air. Salt is a known antibacterial and it also helps clear mucus from bronchial passages and lungs. In diseases where breathing becomes difficult due to inflammation or blockages, salt is an effective remedy. It is not only bronchial and pulmonary illnesses where salt is found to be beneficial; even people with cystic fibrosis, sinusitis, smoker’s cough, ear infections, eczema and acne have benefited with salt treatments.

The theory underlying salt therapy is simple. Micro-fine salt particles dispersed in the air work in two ways. Salt in the air has negative ions that bind to positively charged particles of dust, viruses and bacteria, rendering them ineffective. Salt inside the respiratory passages kills bacteria and pathogens and also helps to reduce inflammation as well as loosen and liquefy mucus. Such mucus is then expelled and the result is that people with respiratory diseases find it easier to breathe.

Salt therapy in a bedroom

It may not be possible for afflicted people to visit salt caverns or spend time by the seashore in order to breathe in salt-laden air. With a salinizer device it is easy to recreate the same atmosphere and undergo salt therapy at home at your convenience and at a low cost. Saltair device is based on ultrasonic technology and disperses a calibrated amount of microscopic particles of salt inside your home. You can use it in your bedroom or living room, next to you, and freely breathe the salty air while you relax, sleep or watch TV. This passive therapy delivers wonderful results in chronic asthmatics, people with COPD, bronchitis, cystic fibrosis and acute respiratory diseases. Even if you are temporarily afflicted by flu, salt therapy at home provides quick relief and clears up congestion. Besides its action on mucus and bacteria, salt also restores oxygen balance in the entire body. Patients with breathing difficulties may be starved of oxygen and use of a salinizer at home helps to increase blood oxygenation as well.

Is there a risk of saturation of air and salt having a corrosive effect? In a finely designed and calibrated device like the Saltair salinizer, only a safe amount and size of microscopic salt particles are released into the air. There is virtually no risk of breathing in the salt air coming from Saltair device 24 hours a day: the same as you do it at seaside and there is no harmful effect.

Salt is an age-old remedy with no side effects except positive ones. Salt therapy is much better than relying heavily on medication that can adversely affect organs. It costs next to nothing to operate and the only investment is in the salinizer device. Even normally healthy people are discovering the benefits of the Saltair salinizer as a therapeutic device. It is time to get one if you have chronic respiratory conditions or just to stay healthy.
