About Wheezing

What is Wheezing?

Wheezing is a high-pitched whistling like sound made while breathing.  It usually occurs during expiration (breathing out), but it can appear at inspiration (breathing in) as well.

reduced airflow and wheezing

Wheezing is a result of narrowing of the airways, usually due to inflammation or by a physical obstruction. It is typically accompanied by difficulty breathing or shortness of breath. The narrowing of the airways can be caused by inflammation caused by asthma, respiratory infection or allergic reaction.  A physical obstruction can be from a tumour or a foreign object present in the airways.

Causes of Wheezing

The most common cause of recurrent wheezing is asthma. Other possible causes can include:

  1. Allergies
  2. Anaphylaxis (a very severe allergic reaction to allergenic triggers such as food, insect bite or medication)
  3. Asthma
  4. Bronchiolitis
  5. Bronchiectasis
  6. Bronchitis
  7. COPD
  8. Cystic Fibrosis
  9. Emphysema
  10. Epiglottitis (inflammation of the “lid” of your windpipe)
  11. Foreign object in the airways
  12. GERD — Gastroesophageal reflux disease
  13. Heart failure
  14. Lung cancer
  15. Aspirin or other medication
  16. Pneumonia
  17. Pulmonary Fibrosis
  18. Respiratory tract infection
  19. RSV (Respiratory syncytial virus)
  20. Sleep apnea
  21. Smoking
  22. Vocal cord dysfunction

Salt Therapy as Natural Treatment

Many breathing problems can be greatly improved by salt therapy. Salt therapy consists in breathing microscopic salt particles or salt aerosol. Salt has many beneficial properties, such as being antiinflammatory, antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal. Because of these, the microscopic salt particles act deep in the lungs, reducing inflammation, fighting infections, and clearing the stagnant mucus.  This widens the airways and greatly improve breathing. As a result, more oxygen gets into the blood stream, more relaxed sleep and increase well-being will be noted.  You can easily have salt therapy at home, using an ultrasonic salinizer. This salinizer releases tiny salt particles in the air and you can benefit from salt therapy during your sleep hours. It is quite that easy!

Home Salt Therapy and Asthma

Hello. We want to talk to you about Saltair Home Salt Therapy. This is a device that improves your breathing and helps clear up your respiratory system, and it’s especially effective if you have asthma or other conditions like bronchitis, COPD or shortness of breath.

Salt therapy is not new; it was used by the ancient Greeks thousands of years ago to help people with respiratory problems. Even during the medieval age, monks would take the sick in salt caves so they could inhale the salt particles. Unlike other asthma treatments that rely solely on anecdotal evidence, there is a growing number of medical institutions that build near these salt caves to take advantage of their healing properties.

If you have got asthma, or other breathing condition, and cannot afford to go to one of these salt caves, you can now try the Saltair device. This is an ultrasonic particle dispenser that uses ultrasonic frequency vibration to convert saline solution into microscopic salt particles. Once they’re converted, they’re released in the air to breathe them. These microscopic salt particles are able to travel deep into your lungs. It kills the bacteria and removes the mucus that make it hard for you to breathe.

Saltair salt therapy

At the same time salt particles also reduce inflammation and act as a humidifier for your respiratory tract. The salt aerosols also clean the air around you, removing dust, viruses and bacteria.

As you can see, the Saltair isn’t that big, and you can put in on your night table, desk or next to a chair while you’re watching TV. It’s also easy to use, as you just have to plug it in during the day or leave it on overnight. You can use this anywhere, but I suggest placing it near your bed at night when you go to sleep. With Saltair on, the salty air is directed at you.

The Saltair covers around 1700 cubic feet, so even if you move around the room you can still breathe the salt particles. However, this isn’t a humidifier and only releases salt for breathing.

Saltair is compliant with the FDA Canada and can be used by anyone with chronic respiratory disease. This is safe for men, women and children, including pregnant women and babies, and it isn’t going to interact with your medication or diet. In fact you can even use this for pets with respiratory problems.

Do you have a baby with runny nose? Just place the Saltair near them, plug the device and it’s going to help them breathe. And you get the same benefits if you’ve got elderly folk living with you with breathing problems. Unlike other asthma treatments, Saltair doesn’t require you to wear a mouthpiece or a mask.

Saltair comes with a free 3 month supply of natural rock salt, a cleaning kit and an instruction manual. It comes in a waterproof keychain pill container so you can bring it with you anywhere you go.

If you’ve been suffering from asthma and unable to get relief, maybe it’s time you gave Saltair a try. Trust me, you’ll breathe more easily.

How Saltair Aids a Customer Suffering from Asthma – Interview

Esther is one of our customers who’s been using the Saltair – Home Salt Therapy device for very long time! It’s been helping her for more than 6 years to breathe better and manage her respiratory symptoms. She finds Saltair very beneficent and it helps her with her asthma, bronchitis and breathing difficulties.

“It has helped me enormously and I hope it will help anyone with breathing difficulty”, she said in an interview. “I am so pleased with the product that I want tell the world!”

“In the morning I am not congested, I am not coughing and it helps me enormously.” she said.

 

 

The microscopic salt particles generated by Saltair penetrate into the respiratory system by natural breathing. Once they get inside, being so tiny, they travel to alveoli – smallest part in the lung where the oxygen exchange takes place – and help in clearing and reducing the inflammation. They kill bacteria, viruses or fungi and humidify the whole respiratory system, clearing the impurities and mucus. This is also very helpful in respiratory allergy or hay fever, where the allergens are cleared from the respiratory system and the inflammation reduced.

Shortly there will be an improvement in breathing and in shortness of breath. The blood gets more oxygen as a result of better oxygen exchange in alveoli, and this will induce a deeper more relaxed sleep and better body functioning.

Using salt therapy at home every day, at least during the night, will increase the respiratory immunity against respiratory infections and allergens.

Black Seeds – Ancient Healing Food

The black seeds come from an annual flowering plant called Nigella Sativa. Black seeds healing properties are well-known since ancient times. It is frequently referred to as Roman coriander, black caraway, black sesame, black cumin and black onion seed. Today, Nigella Sativa is primarily known as black seed.

The earliest record showing cultivation and use as food and in healing come from ancient Egypt. In Arabic culture it is known as “seed of blessing” and “a remedy for all diseases except death”.

Black Seeds Health Benefits

Many traditionally known black seeds healing benefits have been thoroughly confirmed by biomedical literature and clinical studies. In fact, PubMed – the public library of clinical studies – shows over 600 studies involving Nigella Sativa.  Here is a link to one of them but you can easily create your search for “nigella sativa”.

Black seeds have many pharmacological properties such as antibacterial, antiviral, anti-fungal, helping in fighting pathogens and strengthen the immunity. They are also anti-inflammatory, helping to reduce inflammation. Many respiratory problems involve inflammation of the mucosa. Drinking tea or using black seeds oil can provide great relief and improve breathing.

Black seed is another natural remedy proving great natural healing properties on respiratory system and respiratory diseases. It was found to help in asthma, bronchitis, colds and flu, tonsillitis, and other breathing problems. For a synergistic effect in respiratory diseases and shortness of breath, use home salt therapy together with food that is known for its respiratory benefits, such as black seeds.

Salt therapy, by providing breathable salt particles, replicates the seashore aerosol or salt cave aerosol. These are well known for their respiratory benefits. Natural, easy to use and non-invasive, it is now available for home use. Food and the air we breathe, are important factors in our health!

Health Benefits of Cayenne Pepper in Respiratory Diseases

Health Benefits of Cayenne Pepper in Respiratory Diseases

Cayenne Pepper is well known for thousands of years for its healing properties. The famous herbal Dr. Schulze said:
“If you master only one herb in your life, master cayenne pepper. It is more powerful than any other.”

Cayenne pepper was found to have potent effects in the heart and circulatory system. It is also considered a lifesaver in the case of heart attack. Beside the other health effects illustrated in the picture below, cayenne pepper also has significant health effects on respiratory system and mucus membranes. In sore throat a gargle with cayenne pepper tea and a pinch on natural rock salt will cure it.

cayenne pepper health benefits

The capsaicin in cayenne pepper stimulates secretions and protects mucus membranes in the entire respiratory tract. It helps to clear stagnant mucus and opens the airways. It is of great help in sinusitis and cystic fibrosis to eliminate stagnant secretions. Drinking cayenne pepper tea is beneficial in colds and flu and promotes sweating.

Cayenne pepper is a good source of beta-carotene. Beta-carotene has great effects on reducing symptoms in asthma. It helps in developing healthy mucus membranes in the nasal passages, sinuses, lungs and urinary tracts.  This will provide protection against invading pathogens and increasing immunity to infections.

Due to its high capsaicin and beta-carotene content, cayenne pepper is an excellent decongestant and expectorant.  This make it useful in cystic fibrosis where the transport of mucus is altered. It helps to loosen the sticky mucus and eases elimination. It reduces swelling and inflammation in the respiratory tract, improving breathing.

Due to these health benefits, using cayenne pepper together with home salt therapy is highly recommended. This will potentize the benefits in respiratory diseases and strengthen the immunity.

Lots of reasons to include cayenne pepper in your diet!
