Salt therapy is the new drug free way to help with respiratory illnesses such as bronchitis, COPD, sinus infections, pneumonia, and much more. With the help of microscopic salt particles, this treatment clears the lungs from excess of mucus, reduce inflammation and improves overall breathing. It even improves mood and generates better sleep patterns by promoting a better blood oxygenation. Salt therapy used to be a very costly activity since salt caves are not a common thing to find and only a few spas with salt rooms offered this treatment. Fortunately, salt therapy has become much more accessible and easy to do without ever having to find a salt cave or a spa that offers the treatment.
Salt therapy at home is a very convenient and cost-effective way to do this treatment without having to leave the house. How to do salt therapy at home can be achieved in a few very simple steps. The first step is buying a salt machine (an ultrasonic salinizer) and the proper salt needed to use with this machine. The salt machine is the magic tool that does it all. It transforms the salt into minuscule particles, making them unobtrusive when breathing them in.
The type of salt used is also important to assure the best results. Natural rock salt, unprocessed and untreated chemically is used with the salt machine. The natural rock salt also contains natural occurring minerals in it, having a synergistic effect on the respiratory system. The salt machine – SaltAir, is small and silent and very easy to use.
The second step to achieving salt therapy at home is to find the time for it. Salt therapy is lengthier treatment compared to others, but can easily be accomplished while asleep. SaltAir machine can easily fit on top of a nightstand, offering 7-8 hours exposure during the night sleep. This feature is very important for chronic respiratory sufferers who need constant long-term exposure.
While too much salt intake is said to have a negative effect on the body, that is when it is being consumed. With salt therapy, the salt particles are being inhaled and entering only the respiratory system, not the digestive tract, and they are eliminated with the mucus clearance. The salt particles inhaled are so small that it doesn’t pose any risk to your health.
The final step is very easy. Relax and enjoy it. Salt therapy doesn’t have to just be done while sleeping. It can be done while doing relaxing activities such as yoga, reading, or meditation. The only requirement is to be in close proximity with the unit, up to 2 ft, and direct the air towards you. For children, a play area with toys or an arts or crafts table can be set up, so they can stay busy while the salt machine does its job, next to them. As long as the patient gets the exposure needed, this treatment can be done however they want it.
Salt therapy at home makes it very easy to enjoy the lasting effects of this treatment. By bringing the effects of salt caves at home, it saves money from paying for continuous treatments, and time from traveling to these few select locations. Bringing a salt machine home will allow you to do salt therapy whenever you want to without any hassle. For such a small machine, it really can do a lot and have positive long-lasting effects on the lungs and body.
