People with respiratory problems tend to turn to nebulizers to make their condition bearable. What many don’t know is that salt therapy can also help relieve breathing difficulties. In Russia and Eastern Europe (where salt caverns are abundant), salt therapy has been used for years to treat and prevent respiratory conditions. Modern salt caves and rooms are being built more frequently all over the world and ‘halotherapy’ is the term used to describe salt therapy in man-made rooms. You can also enjoy the benefits of salt therapy with the Salin Plus device.
How Does Salt Therapy Work?
The benefits of salt therapy are attributed to its anti-inflammatory effects. The treatment involves breathing salty air. Once inhaled, the microparticles of salt penetrate deep into the lungs, helping unblock and remove any blockage and buildup of mucus and foreign allergens. The Salin Plus device uses microcrystalline salts that are fanned through the air to relieve breathing difficulties.
The salt particles are known to have a similar effect on the skin by absorbing bacteria and other impurities responsible for many skin conditions. Salt is also known to produce negative ions, which tend to cause the body to release more serotonin – one of the chemicals that contribute to feelings of happiness.
Does Salin Plus Really Work?
Salin Plus salt therapy benefits adults and children and even animals. It’s natural and safe and there are no harmful side effects associated with it. Moreover, Salin Plus is increasingly beneficial for overall wellness by removing the toxicity from the respiratory system, boosting the immune system and improving the function and appearance of the skin. Take a look at some of the respiratory conditions that Salin Plus can relieve.
If you were wondering does salt therapy help asthma, you’ll be happy to learn that it reduces your reliance on inhalers and other medications. Asthma causes your airways to narrow and swell, causing shortness of breath and a tight chest. When the airways produce extra mucus, it comes quite difficult to breathe. While asthma can’t be cured, its symptoms can be controlled and salt therapy can help when used alongside existing medical treatment. The anti-inflammatory and antibacterial therapeutic benefits of salt help to clear excess mucus and prevent recurrent attacks, aiding you to breath more easily and naturally.
Another great benefit of the treatment is that it boosts your immune system, making it easier to fight infection. Chest infections are caused by bacteria which can lead to shortness of breath, pangs in the chest and overall discomfort. The therapy helps you to cough up the phlegm, hence relieving the breathing. Over time, this can help reduce the occurrence of chest infections and prevent chest infection from spreading into other organs.
Salt therapy also helps reduce allergic reaction to irritants in the home. Sinusitis is a condition that is often caused by an infection of the mucus membrane due to the common cold. During a period of the common cold, the mucus membranes become swollen and block the openings of the sinuses. Salt therapy can help by making the expulsion of mucus easier, preventing the build-up of mucus thereafter.
Hay Fever and Allergies
Hay fever or rhinitis how it’s medically called is an allergic reaction normally experienced at various times of the year. Pollen and other allergens from trees, grass and plants cause an inflammation of the lining of the nose with unpleasant side effects including red and itchy eyes, blocked or runny nose, facial redness, itchy skin, headaches and sleep loss. By making the expulsion of mucus easier and restricting the build-up of further mucus, the symptoms of hay fever also relieved.
How Should Salin Plus Be Used?
When first starting off with this therapy, it’s a good idea to have about a month of intensive use. You can plug the device in at night and also in the rooms you are using during the day and Ideally, the device should be used for a minimum of eight hours per day, so overnight is the easiest and most convenient time. However, as you can easily carry the device around, you can have it on in the living room too during the days if you like it. The device is suitable for everyday use and won’t cause damage to your walls.
Keep in mind that leaving the window/door open or using the air conditioner will affect the usefulness of the device. That is because the salt particles will be extracted from the room and poor air quality will continue to flow in, making it more difficult for the device to control air quality.
The only maintenance required by the device is to replace the filter after 4 months of use. After this period the filter starts to lose its effectiveness as fewer salt crystals are dispersed into the air to provide the therapeutic effect. The filter will also start to become blocked with dust and other airborne pollutants that it has removed from the air.
