Sinusitis is a painful infection and/or inflammation which occurs behind the forehead and even behind the cheek bones where your sinuses are located. Bacteria or viruses may cause such infections due to the accumulation of mucus within the sinus cavities.
Such infections may be caused by allergens found naturally within the home, office or outside environment, where various symptoms may be presented such as a pounding headache, nasal secretions varying in colour from yellow to green and trouble breathing. Even though sinus medications may ease such symptoms, it’s important to remember that such methods are but temporary ways of relief with many having other side effects themselves.
Salt room therapy is an all-natural process in order to treat sinusitis as well as a sinus infection by opening up any blockages found within the sinus tract itself. Salt therapy works with the particles reaching inside of the tract and then pulling out any fluids found which increase the rate of clearing out any mucus. Such actions reduce oedema of the nasal mucosa which are the main causes of blockages leading to acute sinusitis and even chronic sinusitis in extreme cases.
The clearing of the nasal mucosa allows the air passage itself to become wider allowing for better breathing while the nasal tubes found within the sinuses can better drain fluids.
Salt room therapy not only cleans out the passages and the nasal tubes, it also prevents a bacterial infection from setting in as the therapy kills off harmful bacteria. Due to the less frequency of sinus infections, dependence of antibiotics will be decreased which will improve overall immunity for the body.
How Does Salt Therapy Work?
By re-creating the specific microclimate found within naturally occurring salt caves and mines within a specified environment the Saltair, home therapy device, releases small salt particles within the home for ease of breathing.
The amount of micro salt particles is in parallel to the amount of times and the length that it is used within an area for. No salt deposits will be found within the home and it can be utilised best during the night when sleeping for around a 7-8 hour stretch.
The pros of the device are many, most notably the fact that it creates the microenvironment of salt caves within the comfort of your home.
Salt therapy is a drug-less method of easing any discomfort experienced with acute and chronic sinusitis while being non-invasive at the same time.
The device is small and compact and can even be taken with when travelling.
All members of the family (including babies and pets) can benefit from salt air therapy, as it’s not harmful in any way or form.
