Children’s early growth process and development is important, so exposure to air pollution can have a lasting effect on future health. The effects of inhaling 99.99% pure grade sodium chloride – salt can be beneficial for children suffering from allergies, nasal or bronchiolitis inflammation, stuffiness, asthma, and other respiratory disorders.
How salt therapy works for children:
Salt Therapy can reduce inflammation, kill germs and bacteria, and boost your child’s immune system.
Salt Therapy for children can significantly help to:
Reduce the need for inhalers and antibiotics
Make breathing easier after just a few sessions
Improve lung function
alleviate sneezing, coughing, shortness of breath
Clear mucus and sticky phlegm from the lungs
Increase resistance to respiratory tract diseases
Strengthen the immune system
Improve sleep patterns
Improve general health and quality of life
Asthma is a condition in which your airways narrow and swell to produce extra mucus. This can make breathing more difficult and trigger coughing, wheezing, and shortness of breath. Asthma can’t be cured but symptoms can be controlled.
How do I Salt Therapy works
Dry salt therapy consistently demonstrates a dramatic positive effect on asthma symptoms. Over a series of sessions, inhalation of dry salt aerosols will bring the improvement of mucociliary clearance and the decrease of bronchial inflammation, the decrease or elimination of pathogenic microorganisms, and a reduction of the bronchial hyper-responsiveness.
This translates into better lung function, fewer spasmodic attacks, and clear air passages. Naturally, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory salt particles are carried into the deepest recesses of the bronchiolitis system due to the unique aerosol disposal system and the microscopic size of the particles.
Salt Therapy is not only safe for children, it is a highly recommended Natural treatment. There are no harmful side-effects. The treatment is suitable for children of any age as young (as one months old). Children, in fact, respond to the therapy even more quickly than adults.
Experiencing mental wellness means that your mind is not functioning at its best and in your best interest. How we cope with the normal stresses of life and how we react to the constantly changing circumstances of life can be challenging.
How can Salt Therapy impact overall mental wellness?
Taking a break to unplug and be fully present and engaged in the moment, aware of your thoughts and feelings without distractions or judgment enhances your mental well-being. Paying attention and working on how you breathe is also important to maintaining and improving your mood while reducing stress and anxiety.
Experiencing Salt Therapy in a salt room is a great way to take a break and unplug in a relaxing and safe environment. The additional benefits of breathing in the micro-sized dry salt particles which are anti-inflammatory, in Hants a respiratory system by opening our airways passages allowing more oxygen to intake. Research shows that oxygen intake helps you relax and boost energy levels.
Psoriasis, eczema and acne
Psoriasis is a common skin condition that changes the life cycle of skin cells. Psoriasis causes cells to build up rapidly on the surface of the skin. The extra skin cells form thick, silvery scales and itchy, dry, red patches that are sometimes painful.
Dermatitis, also known as eczema, results in inflammation of the skin causing itchiness, red skin, and a rash.
How’s Salt Therapy works:
Salt Therapy has been proven to have a multidimensional positive affect on various forms of dermatitis, including acute symptoms of acne, psoriasis, and eczema. Depositing on open skin areas, dry salt particles increase the activity of skin on channels, stimulating cell growth and regeneration. Dry salt particles balance skin pH and auto flora, as well as reducing harmful bacteria and inflammation. After a series of treatments, the study subject showed decreased or resolved scaling of the skin, and the drying and healing of small tissues, scratches, and exudative symptoms.
Skin and respiratory diseases are often coexistent, and dermatitis is associated with other issues of the immune system. The effects of inhaled salt particles on the respiratory tract decrease bacteria and improve bronchiolitis drainage, thus decreasing overall toxicity and reducing the likelihood of future outbreaks.
How Salt Therapy works
The multiple effects of Salt Therapy work to cleanse the respiratory system and speed up the elimination of toxins in the body. Inflammation is reduced to the natural properties of the inhaled salt particles, which also thin bronchioles and nasal secretions. The smallest micro particles of salt reach the lower respiratory system and work as a “bronchial toothbrush” for the airways.
COPD, emphysema, and bronchitis
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease/COPD is a chronic inflammatory lung disease that causes obstructed airflow from the lungs. Symptoms include breathing difficulty, cough, mucus production and wheezing.
Emphysema is a condition in which the alveoli at the end of the smallest air passages the (bronchioles) of the lungs are destroyed as a result of damaging exposure to cigarette smoke and other irritating gasses and particulate matter.
Stress, anxiety and fatigue
Internal and environmental challenges can disrupt the body's ability to bring itself back into balance, creating a situation where stress and fatigue are constant and cumulative.
How salt therapy works:
Salt rooms isolate an individual in a stress free environment that provides healing on a variety of levels while allowing the body to reassert its natural health balance. The negative charge and high surface energy of dry salt particles and power them to penetrate internal airways more deeply bonding with positive irons and calming and relaxing internal muscles as the nervous system rebalances. The same action is simultaneously performed externally as charged particles Coach the skin, reducing chronic hypersensitivity caused by environmental stresses and encouraging cellular regeneration.
Anti bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties reduce the body's toxic load, giving relief to an overBurden immune system and the release of debris and inhaled particles is facilitated. Multiple sessions of treatment in this supportive environment reinforces the organism's natural inclination toward a healthy balance state and enhances its ability to achieve it independently.
Coughs, colds & flu
The common cold is a viral infection of your nose and throat upper respiratory tract. It’s usually harmless, although it might not feel that way. Many types of viruses can cause a common cold. Influenza is a viral infection that attacks your respiratory system, your nose, throat and lungs.
How Salt Therapy works:
Salt Therapy has an immediate remedial effect on the symptoms of cold and flu. Breathing becomes easier as you inhale salt aerosol. It naturally absorbs oedema from swollen air passages and thins mucus secretions so that the drainage is easier. The salt is anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory and goes to the root of the problem to relieve the irritation of sticky mucus secretions and debris and calm and quiet the coughs.
Sinus infections and sinusitis
Acute sinusitis causes the cavities around the nasal passage and the sinuses to become inflamed and swollen.
How’s Salt Therapy works:
Relief of edema from swollen tissues widens passages, improving drainage and increasing aeration behind the tympanic membrane, reducing infection in the pockets where the bacteria often builds due to the fluid.
Due to the particle size of the pure grade sodium chloride-salt, relief from sinus infections is also achieved through the dry salt particles penetrating deep into the respiratory system. Inflammation of the infected sinus cavities is reduced, and relief is achieved quickly as mucus secretions become thinner and are able to drain properly, removing trapped pockets and debris and bacteria. The salt particles also stimulate the immune system, increasing the body's ability to resist further infection as anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties reduce the current episodes.
Allergies occur when your immune system reacts to a foreign substance, such as pollen, airborne particles, pet dander, or food that doesn’t cause a reaction in most people. Your immune system produces substances known as antibodies. When you have allergies, your immune system makes antibodies that identify a particular allergen as harmful, even though it isn’t. When you come into contact with the allergen, your Immune system’s reaction can inflame your skin, sinuses, airways, or digestive system.
How salt therapy works:
Inflammation is reduced to the natural properties of the inhaled salt particles which also thin bronchitis and nasal secretions. Improved drainage allows for a reduction in the contaminants that may trigger prolonged allergic episodes. Additionally, salts ability to absorb oedema from swollen mucosa linings in the sinuses and respiratory tracks open airways to bring about the quick relief of symptoms
How and Why Salt Therapy Works
There are three primary characteristics of pure sodium chloride, NaCl, known as salt:
Salt is super absorbent (especially when it is completely dry)
Salt is anti-bacterial
Salt is anti-inflammatory
This type of dry salt is placed into a halogenerator that then precisely grinds the salt into specific micro-sized particles and then disperses the salt aerosol into the air in a closed environment such a salt room..
As the salt travels in the salt room, these salt particles of dry sodium chloride are inhaled into the respiratory system. The dry salt naturally starts absorbing allergens, toxins and foreign substances into your lungs and throughout your respiratory tract. Dry salt may help to reduce inflammation and open airway passages. The micro-sized crystal structure of pure NaCl particles breaks loose and clears out all of the ‘bad stuff’. This is the basis for how dry salt therapy can impact people suffering from respiratory conditions like allergies, asthma, bronchitis, cystic fibrosis, COPD and others.
The properties of dry salt also absorb impurities and provide anti-bacterial properties that benefit the skin such as acne, psoriasis and eczema as well as regulates the skin's micro-circulation. The smaller particles can reach beneath the skin’s surface and absorb moisture towards the skin. The larger salt particles land on the skin and absorb any bacterial and foreign substances. The dry salt accelerates cell rejuvenation and improves skin rigidity.
The climate conditions in a dry salt room therefore must maintain certain temperature and humidity levels and proper ventilation to ensure the efficacy of the salt therapy and provide a ‘clean-air’ environment for the consumer.
Lungs and Respiratory System
Healthy lungs and a clean respiratory system are essential for vitality, energy, and longevity.
The main function of the lungs is to deliver oxygen to our red blood cells and get rid of the CO2 from the body. In addition, our respiratory tract acts as a very important defense mechanism by filtering the air from pollutants and foreign substances, it regulates the pH level of blood by managing the levels of CO2, and it also helps control blood pressure by converting the chemical in the blood called angiotensin I into angiotensin II.
How dry salt improves the respiratory system
People are exposed to pollutants, airborne diseases, bacteria, allergens, and other irritating factors on a daily basis. Salt therapy is a method to cleanse and detox the lungs as well as invigorate the entire body with increased lung capacity and oxygen intake. Regular Salt therapy is an excellent way to aid breathing and improve your quality of life.
Dry salt is super absorbent and acts like a sponge attracting foreign substances along its path through the respiratory tract. The dry salt can be imagined to behave like a toothbrush that cleans through the respiratory system removing the build-up of foreign elements that cause various respiratory ailments and conditions. Clean lungs are healthy lungs.
