Salt Therapy for Allergies
That You Can Try At Home
Autumn and spring bring allergies in their wake. Those susceptible to allergens are the worst
affected and come down with flu-like symptoms. Runny nose or blocked sinus is the result along
with other bodily discomforts. Some people are more susceptible. Those with asthma are at high
risk of asthma attacks when allergies aggravate an already difficult condition.
The remedy is not in a quick-fix allergy medication but in age old tried and trusted ingredient
found abundantly throughout the world. Salt therapies for allergies are gaining ground as more
evidence comes to light about how useful salt is to treat a variety of conditions such as asthma,
allergies and COPD. Just spending some time in a salt laden environment is sufficient to bring
huge relief in these cases. If one spends time in a salt cave where there is an abundance of rock
salt micro-particles in the air, the breathing condition will be greatly improved. Salt is anti-
bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral. It works on the epithelial cells in the respiratory system
toeliminate inflammation and clear secretions. Salt dissolves phlegm, kills microorganisms and
helps the body expel mucus in addition to strengthening immune response to pathogens and
allergens. Rock salt therapy is proven by the efficacy of salt caverns across Europe that have
helped people with a variety of allergies and lung diseases, to cope and breathe easy, for
hundreds of years.
One way to get the benefit of salt at home to treat allergies is to try simple salt inhalation. Rock
salt can be dissolved in boiling water. Inhale the steam and tiny particles of salt get into your
bronchial tubes. Another way is to follow the age-old practice of gargling with warm water in
which salt is dissolved. However, it has been found that salt dispersed in dry air works much
better. One way to achieve this is to keep rock salt, either in the form of large crystalsor as
powder in trays, and hope for salt to disperse in the air, much the same way as happens in salt
caverns. One can also wet cloth or paper in saturated salt solution and let it dry in front of a
blower that can be a warm air blower or the blower of an air conditioner. This could be a rather
inefficient process to disperse salt in the air to treat allergic symptoms. Salt lamps are another
rather inefficient way to get relief in chronic respiratory conditions.
Recent technologies make use of ultrasonics to achieve the same effect as salt caves but much
faster and in a more efficient way, right in the comfort of your own home. Anyone with a
respiratory condition or susceptible to allergies can get this portable, compact device, that is very
easy to use and effective.
Saltair device uses ultrasonic frequenciesto transform saline solution into under two micron size
salt particles. The micro-fine salt particles are dispersed into the air for free breathing. They are
able to travel deep into the lungs, to alveoli, and work wonders to clear mucus, reduce
inflammation, fight pathogens and allergens, improve blood oxygenation and, with long-term
use, strengthen the respiratory immunity.
