Who exactly will salt therapy benefit? Let’s discuss:
- Suffering from respiratory infection
Salt has natural anti-bacterial, antiviral and anti-fungal effects; speeding up the clearance of any foreign invaders and helping clear an infection faster.
- Shortness of breath or wheezing,
Airway constriction is most often a result of mucus build up and/or inflammation. Salt acts to reduce inflammation and additionally draws more water into the airways, which breaks up mucus and allows it to be cleared. Therefore this therapy minimizes both the amount of mucus and inflammation in the lungs, to help ease breathing.
- Sensitive lungs
if you suffer from asthma, or in general get easily irritated when inhaling smoke or are in highly polluted areas. The salt particles function to detoxify air, removing toxins and pollutants present, which is also another means of reducing inflammation caused by these irritants.
- Sleeping disorders
Many sleep disorders are a result of respiratory problems. Since salt therapy acts to open up airways, it results in easier breathing and ultimately uninterrupted sleep.
