Home Salt Therapy for Cystic Fibrosis and COPD

Cystic fibrosis, also known as mucoviscidosis is a genetic disorder where the autosomal recessive gene is affected. The disease affects the lungs, heart, pancreas, liver and intestines. It is characterized by abnormal transport of sodium and chloride through epithelium, making the secretions thick and viscous.

The first indication of cystic fibrosis are salty skin, poor growth, thick sticky mucus, frequent respiratory infections, persistent cough and shortness of breath. Frequent lungs and sinus infections result from clogging because of the thick sticky mucus, reduce ciliary mobility and inflammation.

The lungs of persons with cystic fibrosis are infected and colonised with bacteria from an early age. These types of bacteria and their characteristics change and develop in time in persons with cystic fibrosis, because they have a perfect environment in the thick viscous mucus and they develop resistance to commonly used antibiotics.

COPD, on the other hand, includes under its umbrella other chronic respiratory diseases, such as emphysema and chronic bronchitis. COPD stands for "chronic obstructive pulmonary disease" and symptoms include many debilitating symptoms: shortness of breath, cough of thick mucus and poor lung function. In chronic bronchitis the lining of the breathing tubes become inflamed and lots of mucus is being produced and coughed up. With emphysema, the walls of the air sacs in the lungs are broken down and more air is trapped inside. Many people have both, chronic bronchitis and emphysema.

The respiratory complications can be reduced using salt therapy. Hypertonic saline solution is used in hospitals to help in clearing the thick stagnant mucus and avoid infection. The long-term salt aerosol exposure in home salt therapy, provides exposure during the night sleep, when the micro particles of salt slowly deposit on the respiratory mucosa. It helps to make the thick mucus more fluid, unclogs the airways, fight bacteria, viruses and reduces the inflammation.  Using Saltair, home salt therapy device, will create a seashore microenvironment in your own house helping you to breathe better naturally.
