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.
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 4-5 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, start dropping down the intensity of treatments, with the goal to find what is the best ongoing maintenance program for your body. This will vary from person to person.
Salt Therapy is a non medical, complementary treatment which has no side effects when used with your normal medication. Including Salt Therapy as part of your management plan, you may notice a reduction in medication needed. Please consult your doctor before changing your medication. Salt Therapy is not a cure; it is a complementary treatment that can relieve symptoms of bronchiectasis.
