We know that going to the dentist to get our teeth checked and cleaned every six months helps prevent tooth decay and cavities. We also know that regular visits to our chiropractor keeps our spines in proper alignment and can prevent many back and neck issues. The same can be said for regular visits to an optometrist to ensure that our eye health is maintained. These are common things we do throughout the year to ensure the overall wellness of our families. But what about our respiratory health? We often wait until we have symptoms such as sinus congestion/pain, postnasal drip, a persistent cough or mucus build-up before we think about how optimally our lungs and sinuses are functioning. Salt therapy is an amazing natural treatment option for the above symptoms and for ailments such as allergies,asthma, bronchitis, sinus/chest infections and should be your first choice of treatment.
With its naturally anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties, salt has been used for thousands of years as a powerful healing agent. Salt therapy should also be a part of your regular wellness routine and used as a measure of prevention. Clinical studies have proven that inhaling purified salt-infused air works to loosen and clear mucus, and helps reduce inflammation in the respiratory tract. This leads to a widening of the airways and removal of blockages in the bronchi and bronchioles. A clean respiratory system naturally results in higher oxygen intake, increased energy and an improved immune system.
Moreover, through regular visits to your local salt clinic, your are helping to detoxify the respiratory system and for those who suffer from chronic conditions, can be better prepared to cope with symptoms from asthma, COPD, cystic fibrosis, emphysema and bronchiectasis. Here at Breathe Salt Wellness, we encourage our clients to come in for regular wellness visits throughout the year to keep their respiratory systems healthy.
