Salt therapy has become widely popular as it is highly effective. It has many health benefits including problems related to respiratory illnesses. For people suffering from chronic respiratory conditions such as asthma, bronchitis, cystic fibrosis and allergies, salt therapy is one of the best and natural treatment options to consider.
The therapy has been in practice for many many years. Right from the time man lived in caves, inhalation of salt particles is provided them with the health benefits of salt therapy. Now, many new technologies have been developed that can help you do salt therapy at home.
The first step is buying a salt machine (an ultrasonic salinized) and the right salt to be used with it. The salt machine is the magic tool that does everything. The salt machine transforms the salt into minuscule particles, making them unobtrusive when breathing them in.
The salt used in salt therapy should be natural rock salt to achieve the best results. While too much salt consumption can harm the body, in salt therapy, the salt particles being inhaled only enter the respiratory system and not the digestive tract. This salt gets eliminated through the mucus. There is no health risk as the salt particles inhaled are very tiny.
Two steps to do salt therapy at home:
1. Use Aerobika, which is an inhaler like device for 10-20 minutes at a time. The use of this device facilitates the removal of thick and excess mucus from the airways, which is associated with many respiratory issues.
2. A salinizer device can be kept in any room of your house. It can be used for 24 hours if you keep the machine in all the rooms of your house. This machine releases the microscopic salt particles into the air. This air acts as anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal and helps expel the mucus, reduces inflammation and improves overall breathing function.
The two devices, when used in combination, can give you the maximum benefit. Doing salt therapy at home helps consistently in clearing the airways and reducing inflammation for people suffering from chronic respiratory condition.
Conditions like acute sinus, cold or any other respiratory infection can be quickly relieved with salt therapy. The therapy basically works by clearing unwanted pathogens from the airways.
