Active salt therapy is simple and effective due to the four primary characteristics of salt:
• It is extremely absorbent (especially when it is completely dry)
• It is a very effective as an anti-bacterial and an anti-viral
• It is acts as an anti-inflammatory
• Acts as an expectorant(a medicine which promotes the secretion of sputum by the air passages, used to treat coughs)
For all of these reasons, Halotherapy using dry salt helps to significantly reduce symptoms associated with:
• Allergies & Hay Fever
• Colds and Flu
• Ear Infections
• Cystic Fibrosis
• Wheezing & Coughing ( including Smoker’s Cough)
Coughs, Colds & Flu:
The common cold is a viral infection of your upper respiratory tract. It is usually harmless but can be cause a great of discomfort. Influenza is a viral infection that typically attacks the entire respiratory tract.
How Does Dry Salt (Halo) Therapy Work?
Dry salt therapy has an immediate remedial effect on the symptoms associated with colds and flu. Breathing becomes easier as the inhaled salt naturally absorbs edema from swollen air passages and thins mucus secretions resulting in easier and more complete drainage. The microscopic salt particles can be taken deep into the cavities of the entire respiratory tract bringing antibacterial and anti-inflammatory action right to the root of the problem. It also will provide quick relief from sticky mucus secretions as well delivering the antispasmodic effect of the negative ions to help calm and quiet coughs.
Boosting Your Immune System
Equally important is the sterile environment of the treatment room itself. This enables your immune system to begin to reassert itself and provide a quicker recovery. Additionally, the deep cleaning of the sinus cavities and respiratory tract from the treatment reduces the toxic load on the immune system. A series of Dry Salt (Halo) Therapy treatments will not only help with a current cold or flu incident, but will significantly reduce the risk of a new infection for months in the future.
