Dry Salt Therapy Provides a Powerful Healing Experience


The human body needs oxygen to survive and function properly. Red blood cells in the lungs collect and distribute oxygen throughout the entire body. People with allergies, asthma, COPD and other breathing difficulties are affected by mucous in the lungs that makes it more difficult to absorb oxygen. This affects not only their quality of life, but also others around them.

Purifying the respiratory system can resolve some of the most common, annoying and even vicious breathing problems people face, including sinusitis, bronchitis and a host of other respiratory illnesses.

Dry Salt Therapy, also known as halotherapy, is a method of inhaling pure, dry, micronized fine salt particles. It disperses fine salt particles in the air that are comfortably inhaled. Halotherapy is 100% natural, drug-free complementary therapy that works with medications taken by those with respiratory and skin issues. It offers the natural antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and absorbent properties of sea salt to provide relief for respiratory, and also skin conditions, by attracting moisture and absorbing bacteria and other impurities responsible for many skin issues.

Scientific studies show that people who suffer with asthma or other ailments breathe easier after halotherapy. The calming and detoxifying effects also help support the immune, nervous and lymphatic systems. Additional benefits are reduced stress and headaches, increased energy, and better sleep patterns. And there are no reported negative side effects.

Dr. Norman Edelman, Senior Scientific Advisor to the American Lung Association, says, “When fine salt particles are inhaled, they fall on the airway linings and draw water into the airway, thinning mucous and making it easier to raise, thus helping people feel better,” said Dr. Edelman. “Also, these salt air environments are allergen-free and thus good for people with allergies affecting their lungs.”
