What is Salt Therapy?
Salt therapy is known as Halotherapy (halo means salt in Greek). Our Halochamber is 100% natural, safe, and drug free treatment. It benefits asthmatics, cystic fibrosis patients, and a host of other respiratory and skin ailment sufferers. It is a popular treatment for children with asthma because it is all natural and some say it reduces the need for prescription medications.
Those who advocate salt therapy attribute the benefits to the fact that it is a sterile environment, without pathogens like bacteria and viruses, allergens. Any microorganism that makes it into the cave cannot survive because of the salt. Salt rooms also have a high level of negative ions, which can help improve your mood.
How Does Salt Therapy Work?
As the Himalayan salt is inhaled, it travels through the sinuses and respiratory tract absorbing moisture, cleansing, clearing mucus and killing bacteria. When heated it defuses 84 minerals in to the air which are then inhaled into the lungs.
Salt molecules are comprised of a positive sodium ion and a negative chloride ion. While you breathe in the salty air of the therapy room, salt molecules enter the moist airways of the lungs and break down, releasing the negative ions.
The negative ions stimulate airway linings, improving mucous clearance and improving immune response to pathogens. People with chronic respiratory conditions lack sodium chloride in their airway linings and salt therapy helps resolve this deficiency. It alleviates symptoms; helps prevent them from reoccurring, and reduce dependence on medications like nasal sprays and inhalers. The Anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties help loosen up mucus in lungs and the airborne salt that works on airways also clears up a variety of skin conditions, such as psoriasis, acne and eczema. Furthermore, the release of negative ions can have a beneficial effect on your mood.
Studies suggest that the release of negative ions (what you experience when you step outside into fresh air) during salt therapy reduces stress, headaches, lethargy and depression, and improves energy and mental acuity while stabilizing mood and sleep patterns. Salt therapy provides the best results when you take it regularly.
