What is snoring?

Snoring is the vibration of your respiratory parts that usually forms a very loud sound due to obstructed breathing while sleeping. In most cases, snoring becomes loud, unpleasant, and often leaves the person feeling insecure when it comes to sleeping next to a partner. It doesn’t help the other party either. It can leave both of you feeling exhausted and frustrated. Not only does snoring make it hard to get a good night’s sleep, people who snore are more irritable and have trouble concentrating. While snoring is very common, excessive snoring needs to be tended to. It can lead to more serious issues such as heart disease, increased blood pressure, and sleep apnea. Many people just accept snoring for the nuisance it is, but there is a very beneficial treatment to help prevent snoring. Salt therapy for snoring is one of the best options for this ongoing problem.

Stop snoring today with salt therapy!

A lot of people use mouthpieces that position the jaw in a certain way so the snoring stops. While they certainly help, they are often very uncomfortable and irritating to put in.  Salt therapy has become a favored treatment because it’s non-invasive, contains no side effects, and there is no added discomfort to the patient. There are many spas that offer this treatment, but salt therapy can even be done in your own bedroom with the purchase of a salt machine. The salt machine is a small and portable device that will regularly dispense microscopic salt particles, which are then inhaled deep into the lungs.  It clears the airways and improves airflow. Once exposed to salt therapy and doing it continuously, the respiratory system and the muscles in it begin to strengthen. When the muscles in the throat and mouth become stronger, it can restrict them from relaxing too much while sleeping. Since the muscles won’t relax as much, it can completely reduce and even eliminate the vibrations that cause the snoring.

Believe it or not, there are actually different types of snoring. Snorers are often put into two categories: mouth snorers and nasal snorers. While both snorers can benefit from doing salt therapy, nasal snorers are the ones who greatly benefit. Since their nasal passages are blocked, it’s almost impossible to breathe in through the nose, leaving the body no choice but to start breathing through the mouth, which then results in snoring.  Salt therapy can also help with this. Because the salt contains negative ions, it will attract the water particles to it. The thick mucus will moisten and thin out, making it easy to blow out.  Salt also contains anti-inflammatory elements. Swollen airways and nasal passages often are often painful to breathe through. Salt therapy will relieve the inflammation and make breathing easier once again.

After all the sleep you’ve been missing out on, salt therapy will also leave you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. As previously mentioned, salt contains negative ions. Negative ions can usually only be found around places such as beaches and waterfalls. Breathing in these ions while you sleep will leave a relaxed effect on the body and have you waking up feeling refreshed instead of fatigued.  In addition to that, the negative ions also increase serotonin levels in the bloodstream. Serotonin is responsible for relieving stress, boosting energy, and improving overall mood. You’ll have a smile on your face even before you have your morning coffee!

While snoring is a very common thing, if it becomes excessive it can create problems. Health problems, relationship problems, problems that can easily vanish when try out salt therapy. This natural treatment will give you the sleep you deserve without it being uncomfortable. It will strengthen the muscles inside the airways, make nasal snorers less congested, and let your body unwind and rest, all while you’re sleeping. Because this treatment has no side effects, it’s safe and usable for all members in the household. It’s time to make snoring a problem of the past. Throw out those earplugs and try out salt therapy today!

The narrowing of the airways can be caused by inflammation from asthma, a respiratory infection or an allergic reaction.  A physical obstruction can be from a tumor or a foreign object present in the airways.

The most common cause of recurrent wheezing is asthma. Other possible causes of wheezing can include:

  1. Allergies

Sleep Apnea

Sleep Apnea is a very serious disease and untreated can lead to many chronic diseases, some of them life-threatening. In the treatment of sleep apnea you should check all available treatments and methods that fit you and help you to get more oxygen into the bloodstream and open the airways.

sleep-apnea

Lack of oxygen into the bloodstream affects every organ and the whole body. Few of the classical medical treatments are using CPAP machine, oral appliances or surgery to open the airways. Surgery is a very invasive method of treatment and not always efficient, depending on the cause of the disease.

Beside these, home salt therapy is a natural treatment that can be use alone or in connection with other treatment. Home salt therapy by Saltair device, releases microscopic particles of salt into the indoor air for breathing. There is no mouthpiece, no face mask, just breathe freely. If you use a CPAP machine during the night, use home salt therapy more during the day.

Salt therapy is highly recommended because it helps to reduce inflammation, clear the mucus and open the airways. The microscopic salt particles are able to travel to alveoli in the lungs, where the oxygen intake takes place, and improve oxygen absorption. This will lead to better sleep and increased well-being.
