If you’re dealing with a respiratory condition, remember that traditional pharmaceutical medications aren’t your sole solution. Alongside your prescribed drugs, you can incorporate lifestyle changes to address and control your respiratory condition and boost your lungs.
Strengthening your lungs can help you fight a variety of ailments, from cystic fibrosis to the milder respiratory syndromes, such as asthma. Playing wind instruments can expand your lung capacity. This can aid in managing your respiratory condition, resulting in improved breathing.
Examples of wind instruments that can strengthen your lungs:
While there are many ways to strengthen your lungs, practicing an instrument is ideal because it is controlled. Unlike sports, which can bring on an attack through overexertion, musical instruments allow you to develop your lung capacity at the speed that is right for you.
Another natural way to manage your breathing is through the use of salt therapy or salt air therapy. Salt air therapy uses ultrasonic vibration technology to transform saline solution into microscopic salt particles. These microscopic salt particles or salt aerosol is released into the indoor air for breathing.
Salt air therapy is an effective way to manage respiratory conditions due to some specific salt properties. These salt properties are:
- Mucolytic – dissolve and liquefy the secretions, unclogging the blockages in the respiratory system
- Anti-inflammatory – salt is hydrophilic, that means it absorbs water from the tissue
- Fighting infections – salt is antibacterial, antiviral and anti fungal – fighting all pathogens
By combining controlled exercise using wind instruments and salt therapy, you can effectively manage your chronic respiratory condition. As time passes, you’ll notice increased lung capacity, resulting in improved overall breathing and enhanced well-being.
Regular use of salt therapy provides additional relief. This natural approach to respiratory problems is entirely safe and doesn’t involve any medication. Salt therapy at home is safe for infants, elders or pregnant women. Home salt therapy is a wonderful natural way to manage your condition, either acute, chronic or preventative.
