Back to school again! I cannot believe how quickly this summer has passed already!… Parents, are you really ready for your kids to go back to school?
Our children’s attitude and confidence, as well as school performance can be influenced by how we, as parents, are getting a new school year off to a good start. A new school year can be difficult for both parents and children. Children are challenged not only by new routine accommodation, new activities, greater level of work and structure in school, but also by health issues. These can appear as soon as the school starts. The school life includes close contact with other classmates and respiratory infections are just around the corner.
Home salt therapy can easily prevent an ear infection, nasal congestion or cold or flu. If there is an onset infection, salt therapy helps a lot in fighting it. Because of this, the recovery would be much quicker. The salt aerosol is antibacterial, antiviral and anti-fungal. It is able to penetrate deep into the lungs and works there just wonderfully. It helps fighting infections, reduces the inflammation or congestion and promotes better breathing and blood oxygenation. Salt therapy also strengthens the respiratory immunity to further respiratory infections.
Beside the health effects on the respiratory system and fighting respiratory infections, increased blood oxygenation has a positive effect over the entire body. This includes the brain and nervous system. As a results, you will benefit from a more relaxed and rested sleep.
Salt Therapy at Home
There are two main devices for salt therapy at home that your kids can greatly benefit from – Saltair device and Salt Inhaler. Saltair device is a salt machine, also called an ultrasonic salinizer. It releases microscopic particles of salt into the indoor air for breathing, usually during sleep. It is very easy to use, without any user involvement, and so recommended in all ages!
Salt inhaler is a hand-held device that can be carried at school and breathe through it during the day. Breathe through the mouth and exhale through the nose – easy like that! The salt inhaler can be used easily by school age kids but it is not recommended for younger kids.
The degree of adjustment depends on the child. As parents, we can help our children have an increased pace of life by planning ahead and maintaining a positive attitude. Health is the most important aspect of our life and everything depends on it. Your child will benefit if you can identify and address a potential issue before school starts. Keep your kids healthy and happy with home salt therapy!
