Bronchitis Treatment with Salt Therapy
How Salt Therapy can help Bronchitis
Salt Therapy is a natural gentle, non invasive, drug free therapy that offers support to the relief of bronchitis symptoms. By sitting in our specially designed salt room, your respiratory system will be exposed to microscopic dry aerosol particles of salt that are inhaled into the lungs. Salt has natural anti-histamine, anti-inflammatory, anti- bacterial and anti-fungal properties which help relieve inflammation and congestion in the airways. As the dry salt is breathed in, it passes through the airways, breaking up or loosening congestion and helping the body to expel the excess congestion and mucus. It helps reduce the inflammation throughout the bronchi resulting in easier breathing and aiding the body to eliminate and heal.
Acute Bronchitis – usually follows a cold or viral infection and is shorter in length.
Intensity is the key to your Salt Therapy success with acute bronchitis.
The best results from Salt Therapy for acute bronchitis is achieved with an intensive treatment. The earlier you salt the better, even when you first feel a cold coming on. However, if the infection has gone to your chest and becomes bronchitis, we can still help and speed up recovery. We highly recommend Salt Therapy 4-5 times within a week as this will help expel the congestion and mucus sitting on your chest in the bronchi. The following week reduce to 3-4 and then use as needed until all symptoms have gone. To prevent reoccuring infections, continue use for at least a month 2-3 times per week to stay healthy. This will also clear any lingering cough or congestion is still present.
Chronic Bronchitis – ongoing inflammation and congestion
Frequency is the key to your Salt Therapy success with chronic bronchitis.
The best results from Salt Therapy for chronic bronchitis are achieved with an intensive treatment to start, to loosen up the congestion. We recommend 4-5 times per week for at least a month, then as the symptoms reduce, lessen to 2-3 times per week for ongoing maintenance for at least 3 months then reduce again. The key is to find you maintenance routine to keep you healthy this maybe once a week or once a month after you have finished the intense treatment. If you feel any colds, flu coming on then increase use until symptoms have passed.
Salt Therapy works well as a preventative treatment as we are constantly breathing in pollutants and allergens which can irritate the lungs with chronic bronchitis. 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.
Salt Therapy is a non medical, complementary treatment which has no side effects when used with your medication. Salt Therapy is not a cure; it is a complementary treatment that can relieve symptoms of bronchitis.
