In your auditory tube, edema can cause ear infections, which can be diminished by positively affecting the airway passages and increasing drainage and clearance behind the tympanic membrane. Any infection can be improved with the bacterial killing properties of salt.
A good natural approach in ear infection is aerosol salt therapy. This can be done during the salt therapy sessions when the microscopic salt particles are released into the air during the sessions. These breathable salt particles are able to penetrate behind the tympanic membrane, in the middle ear. This helps to reduce inflammation, clears secretions and prevents bacterial infection. This is possible due to the mucolytic, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial salt properties.
Home salt therapy helps to reduce and prevent ear infections and other respiratory illnesses. The salt particles are of great help in cleaning the secretions and strengthen the respiratory immunity.
