COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) is a lung disease that makes it hard to breathe. Caused by damage to the lungs over many years, it usually results from smoking but can also be caused by breathing chemical fumes, dust or air pollution over time, it gets worse over time and the damage cannot be undone. But you can take steps to prevent more damage and to feel better with Salt Therapy.
Salt Therapy can bring much needed relieve through the inhalation of dry salt crystals. This is clinically proven to cleanse the respiratory system and to speed up the elimination of toxins.
Dry salt crystals work as a “Bronchial Brush” for the airways. This results in reducing inflammation and restoring the normal transport of mucus secretion. It also helps to free blockage in the Bronchi and Bronchioles, leading to better elimination of the residual tar and allergens.
Salt kills bacteria, which is a major element of bronchitis, and the dry micro particles of salt that are inhaled during a therapy session reduce inflammation and widen the airways. Salt Therapy also helps to shift mucus and reduce the chance of infection.
By visiting our Salt Rooms and inhaling the saline aerosol, you can find safe and natural relief.
You can reduce the need for medication and alleviate coughing, shortness of breath and clear mucus/sticky phlegm. You can also strengthen your immune system to prolong remission times and improve your ability to live well.
Frequency is the key to your Salt Therapy success with COPD.
The best Salt Therapy results for COPD are achieved by including it as part of your lung maintenance program. We suggest an intense treatment of twice or more times per week to start with to help loosen up and clear the lungs as best we can. As your body responds to the treatment, we start dropping down the intensity of the visits, with the goal to find what is the best ongoing maintenance program for your body. This will vary from person to person.
Our salt therapist works with you one on one to devise a program that will suit you best and check in with you regularly to ensure we are providing the best supportive care.
Salt Therapy is a non medical, complementary treatment which has no side effects when used with your normal medication. Including Salt Therapy as part of your management plan, you may notice a reduction in medication needed. Please consult your doctor before changing your medication. Salt Therapy is not a cure; it is a complementary treatment that can relieve symptoms of COPD.
