Salt therapy consistently demonstrates a dramatic positive effect on symptoms of asthma and obstructive bronchial conditions caused by inflammation and harmful debris in the respiratory system. Over a series of treatments, inhalation of dry salt aerosol will bring about the improvement of mucus clearance and a decrease of bronchial inflammation, the decrease or elimination of pathogenic microorganisms, and a reduction of bronchial hyper-responsiveness. This translates into better lung function, fewer spasmodic attacks, and clearer air passages with less use of drugs to control symptoms.
Even chronic deep cough due to tobacco use, nicknamed “Smoker’s Cough,” shows marked improvement with continued treatment. Naturally antibacterial and anti-inflammatory sodium chloride particles are carried into the deepest recesses of the bronchial system due to the unique aerosol dispersal system and the microscopic size of the particles.
In controlled studies, the majority of subjects with asthma or COPD showed reduced bronchial obstruction, better drain function of the airways, and improved viscosity of bronchial secretions. The number and intensity of asthma attacks was reduced, and respiratory discomfort decreased or disappeared, which allowed most to reduce or even eliminate prescribed medications.
