Bronchiectasis Treatment with Salt Therapy

How Salt Therapy can help Bronchiectasis

Salt Therapy is a natural non invasive, drug free therapy that offers relief for bronchiectasis sufferers. The inhalation of dry microscopic particles of salt that are breathed in whilst sitting and relaxing in our specially designed salt room assist the respiratory system to reduce inflammation, open the airways and clear excess congestion and mucus. The naturally found anti-histamine and anti-inflammatory properties of salt help to relieve inflammation in the airways and loosen mucus. The natural anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties help remove any pollutants or allergens that we are constantly breathing in from our environment, which can cause irritation in the lungs and a persistent cough.

Salt Therapy works well as a preventative treatment as we are constantly breathing in pollutants and allergens which can irritate the lungs with bronchiectasis. When our lungs are weakened, it can have a significant effect on our health. The smallest cold can result in weeks of sickness. Breathing in salt as part of your ongoing maintenance can help the body to heal faster and remove irritants fast.  Salt Therapy is not a cure; it is a support for your lungs to help open and relieve inflammation and congestion throughout your airways.

Recommended Treatment

Frequency is the key to your Salt Therapy success with bronchiectasis.

The best Salt Therapy results for bronchiectasis are achieved by including it as part of your lung maintenance program. We suggest an intense treatment of 2-3 times per week to start with to help loosen up and clear the lungs as best we can. As your body responds to the treatment, we start dropping down the intensity of the visits, with the goal to find what is the best ongoing maintenance program for your body. This will vary from person to person. Our salt therapist works with you one on one to devise a program that will suit you best and check in with you regularly to ensure we are providing the best supportive care.

The best value is our unlimited monthly pass when attending twice or more times per week. As your treatment intensity reduces, we recommend our session packages.

Salt therapy can help Bronchiectasis sufferersWhat is Bronchiectasis?

Bronchiectasis, also known as bronchiectasia, is a condition in which damage to the airways causes them to widen and become flabby and scarred. It is usually accompanied by a persistent cough and excess phlegm.

Bronchiectasis is often caused by an infection or other condition that injures the walls of the airways or prevents the airways from clearing mucus.

Air enters and leaves the lungs through a series of branching airways called bronchial tubes (airways). In a healthy individual, the bronchial tubes narrow smoothly towards the edges of each lung. In patients with bronchiectasis however, the airways of the lungs are damaged – irreversibly – instead of narrowing, they widen. The airways slowly lose their ability to clear out mucus, the mucus builds up and bacteria begin to grow. This leads to repeated, serious lung infections. Each infection causes more damage to the airways. Over time, the airways can’t properly move air in and out of the lungs.
