Which Health Issues Can Salt Therapy Treat?

 

In the 19th century, medical professionals began to notice that salt miners had far lower rates of lung cancer and other respiratory ailments than their counterparts. This launched an age of experiments and observations which concluded that breathing in natural salt had positive effects on our bodies – and salt therapy was born. In modern times, salt therapy clinics around the world treat thousands of patients for conditions ranging from severe respiratory infections to skin conditions.

Halosense offers products that help you bask in the healing power of this natural wonder. Here are just a few of the conditions that salt therapy can treat:

Asthma

This is a condition where one’s airways become inflamed or swollen, and produce extra mucus. It makes it hard to breathe or perform any physical activity, and is sometimes life-threatening if the sufferer has a severe attack. Evidence has shown that the healing effects of salt loosen the mucus, making it easier to remove from your airways and easier to breathe. Salt therapy can also help fight off inflammation.

Psoriasis

One of the most common skin conditions, psoriasis occurs when extra skin cells form dry, itchy patches on the top of the skin. In the worst scenarios it can be highly unsightly. Oftentimes, skin conditions are a result of our body not being able to eliminate toxins. Salt treatments can help kill bacteria, fight against inflammation, and lower the level of toxins in your body. Halosense can help you get smoother, healthier skin in just a few treatments.

Common allergies

Any kind of coughing, sneezing, wheezing, or other sinus or respiratory issues caused by allergens in the air can take away from the quality of your life, especially when they are severe. Not being able to enjoy the outdoors, be around pets or enter certain rooms of a house is a fact of life for many allergy sufferers. Salt therapy can help lessen the severity of allergies by clearing your lungs of allergens. It can also help regulate the flow of mucus, decreasing the severity of your coughing and sneezing.

Beside these conditions, there are many other respiratory conditions – such as bronchities, emphysema, pneumonia, COPD, sinus infection, hay fever, snoring, stuffy nose and acute viral or bacterial respiratory infections that salt therapy can be of great help.

Our clients across the world come to us for treatment for a number of different conditions, but the thing that they all have in common is that they understand the healing powers of our salt therapy treatments. These are just a few of the conditions that salt therapy can treat, so if you are suffering from respiratory, or allergy issues, start down the path towards better health with Halosense.

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!

Salt Therapy Is a Sure Fire Remedy for Treating Respiratory Conditions

Salt therapy serves as a natural method of treating and even complimenting medical treatment of asthma, shortness of breath and seasonal allergies. 

Asthma is a respiratory disease which includes symptoms such as frequent coughing and a feeling of tightness within the chest. The effects of asthma include inflammation of the bronchial tubes which causes constriction of the airways within the lungs. This narrowing makes it very difficult for air flow to flow in and out smoothly which results in shortness of breath and coughing.

Allergy - Hay Fever - Allergic Rhinitis

Triggers which can bring about these symptoms and may even result in an asthma attack are varied in their nature and which would include; viruses, seasonal allergies, environmental pollution and even certain types of foods.

Allergic asthma is a term whereby sufferers have severe allergic reactions to ragweed (pollen), dust mites and mould. These added allergies tend to worsen the already significant symptoms presented when a patient has asthma.

Treatment that doctors often prescribe include heavy medications like antibiotics, corticosteroids and bronchodilators which help in normal breathing and reduces bronchial inflammation.

Though with prescribed medicines such as these, there are other side effects to look out for. Recent research has indicated that the long-term use of glucocorticosteriods (oral cortisone-like medications) may lead to low bone density and essentially osteoporosis.

An alternative treatment to harsh medical ones most of the medical fraternity prescribe to, is that of salt therapy. This therapy method is all-natural and does not include the use of harmful oral cortisones. Salt therapy is the safest for use of treatment in asthma and other respiratory conditions.

Saltair salt therapy

Salt therapy has become even more convenient with the availability of the Saltair device in order to convert your home into a salt room therapy haven. During the night sleep, the salt micro particles released by Saltair device aid in easing congestion, coughing and other breathing issues as it creates the perfect environment for natural healing to take place.

These micro salt particles inhaled aid in better mucous drainage, while purifying the lungs and reducing any inflammation within the bronchial tubes. Inhalation allows the salt particles to widen the airways and heal the bronchial tubes at the same time. Such therapies are used frequently to reduce the occurrence of repeated asthma attacks.

Home salt therapy, offering daily long-term exposure, will allow you to see the difference in your breathing while helping you cope with the uncomfortable symptoms of asthma. Long-term exposure by home salt therapy will help to desensitize the respiratory mucosa to allergens and diminish asthma symptoms, shortness of breath and asthma attacks.

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!

Emphysema: Its Risk Factors

We know smoking is injurious to health. It causes severe lung injury and increases its vulnerability to different types of infections. A smoking induced disease is emphysema. In emphysema the air becomes trapped in the lung air sacs, damaging and enlarging them further. Emphysema is part of the COPD – Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease group.

damage in emphysema

The symptoms of this lung disorder often remain non-acute, but chronic. People suffering from emphysema have respiratory discomfort, difficulty when exhaling, and recurrent lung infections. Symptoms are slowly progressing and therefore often remain undetected in the first stage. Learning about emphysema risk factors will better protect you from this lung disease.

Emphysema Risk Factors

Tobacco smoking – cigarette smokers are at great risk of developing emphysema; however, those who smoke pipe or cigar are not spared either. It only depends on the genetic make-up and the number of years under the addiction.

Aging increases the risk  –  vitamin D production decreases in elders and it was proved to have a great impact on healthy lungs.

Exposure to passive smoking – people who are regularly exposed to passive smoking are also at great risk of developing emphysema.

Occupational exposure to harmful fumes – people who are working in polluted environments are also at risk; regular exposure to fumes of cotton, mining products, paint, silica, grain or woods may increase the risk of emphysema.

Exposure to pollution –  regular and high-degree exposure to harmful pollutants like fumes of fuel, car emission, coal fumes, dust and grime.

To stay healthy and avoid chronic respiratory diseases such as emphysema, asthma, COPD and others, using home salt therapy is a good start. The salt aerosol helps in strengthening the respiratory mucosa to allergens. It also helps to clean the pollutants from the respiratory system. Maintaining a good hygiene on the respiratory tract is a priority today!

Common Causes for Shortness of Breath

Feeling breathlessness due to stuffy nose is a common health problem for some of us. While there are multiple reasons behind this issue, we often get confused about finding the right reason causing this discomfort. Although in reality this breathlessness can happen due to multiple reasons, we mostly apprehend asthma as the universal trigger. As a result we fail to get relief if we try self-medication.

The most viable solution for finding the reason behind the problem of shortness of breath is consulting a doctor and to get a thorough medical investigation done. It is commonly observed that some other common reasons exist, which may cause respiratory problems. To be more precise, there are two mechanical processes involved in smooth breathing: one is ventilation and the other is respiration. Problem in any of these two processes may cause breathing problems. Let’s check here what may cause the irregularity.

Cause 1 of shortness of breath: shortage of air supply causes discomfort

When our body demands more air than usual supply it may cause shortness of breath. There are a few common reasons behind this problem. These are

  • Strenuous workout session,
  • Heart attack
  • Sudden shock creating panic,
  • Due to severe infection in body (sepsis)

The common similarity between all these triggers is due to some situation the body suffers from increased demand of oxygen or there is short supply of air. Supplemental oxygen may be one of the most effective remedies but sometimes unless the main reason is treated, patients suffering from shortness of breath cannot get complete relief.

Cause 2 of shortness of breath: inadequate airflow

The problem of inadequate air flow is usually caused due to certain health disorder.This may happen due to certain malfunctioning of organs involved in respiratory system or sometimes some disease may cause this unstable condition of airflow. Common diseases or conditions causing inadequate air supply,

  • Congestion problem like asthma or COPD
  • Swelling of the airways, like pneumonia, congestive heart failure (CHF).
  • Copd_versus_healthy_lung-300x253

In both cases immediate medical intervention will restore normalcy.

Cause 3 of shortness of breath: problem in carrying oxygen in bloodstream

Some unusual situations may occur where oxygen cannot reach from lungs to all parts of the body, especially in brain. Mainly two types of health disorders may cause breathing trouble like this unstable condition,

  • Poisoning due to carbon dioxide, which prevents RBC (red blood cells) to hold oxygen from carrying it to the body organs,
  • The problem of severe anemia creates lack of blood cells required to carry oxygen.

Cause 4 of Shortness of Breath: Lack of Oxygen in the Air

Sometimes lack of oxygen in air may cause acute shortness of breath. For instance, in higher altitude due to thinness in air at time it becomes difficult to get adequate supply of oxygen while breathing. Similarly in a confined space, due to inadequate or no supply of fresh air, causes breathing trouble for people staying in this no-oxygen zone.

These are the common reasons for respiratory discomfort. Right medication and medical intervention may ease the discomfort faster.
