Hello everyone. We are going to talk here about wheezing, what it is, the causes and treatment. The most common wheezing symptom is a whistling sound while you breathe, and this condition could be symptomatic of mucus in the airways, asthma, bronchospasm, acute / chronic bronchitis or hay fever. It could also mean there is something lodged in your throat or airway.
Another of the more common signs is breathing difficulty, especially when you exhale. Sometimes this is accompanied by sputum and tightening on the chest. You can hear the whistling better if you exhale quickly while covering your ears.
Wheezing symptoms are common in children, with up to 30% of pre-school kids experiencing it. However these usually disappear by the time the child turns 3. It is a different case if an adult suffers from it. Aside from difficult breathing, it may also be accompanied by a fever, 101 F or higher.
This could also be a sign of pneumonia or bronchitis, but whatever the cause, breathing will be hard, to the point it feels like you are choking. If you do not get treatment you will wheeze more and cough up mucus or phlegm. The longer this goes on the more difficulty you will have, so you should get treatment as soon as possible.
There are many treatment options given such as supplemental oxygen, an asthma inhaler, inhaled corticosteroids or anti-inflammatory medications. However, these are short-term treatments and not always effective, leaving alone the side effects they come with. A more natural and proven method, that can be used for long-term, as preventative and treatment, without any side effects, is Home Salt Therapy by SaltAir.
Salt air therapy has been around for long time when people learned that the air in underground salt caves were full of ions and salt microns. When inhaled, these salt micro-particles get rid of harmful bacteria and allergens in your lungs. This helps treat respiratory conditions like frequent cough or chronic cough, asthma, wheezing, shortness of breath or snoring… just to name a few. Scientific tests have shown that salt aerosol treatment works, and that is how SaltAir home salt therapy device came to be.
Saltair is an ultrasonic salinizer that produces the same effects as in a salt cave or seashore aerosol. The device comes with 3 months’ supply of rock salt for the saline solution, and once plugged in it converts the saline solution into breathable dry salt particles that are released into the indoor air.
That is all you need to do! You breathe the salty air for 7-8 hours daily, recommended during the night sleep, and soon you will breathe more easily.
