Cold & Flu Treatment with Salt Therapy
How Salt Therapy can help Colds & Flu
Salt Therapy is a natural gentle, non invasive, drug free therapy that offers support to the relief of cold & flu 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 excess congestion. The salt allows you to breathe easier and helps the body to expel congestion and mucus.
The earlier you start using your salt machine the better. When you first feel a cold coming on it can at times clear the cold fast without little symptoms. However, if the cold has already developed, salt can support the body to expel the excess congestion and speed up the duration. For those with lingering coughs or stuffy noses still after a cold has gone, Salt Therapy can clear the residue and clear any lasting effects you may still be feeling.
Intensity is the key to your Salt Therapy success with a cold or flu.
The best results from Salt Therapy for colds & flu are achieved with an intensive treatment. We highly recommend Salt Therapy 4-5 times within a week as this will help expel the congestion and mucus from your chest and nasal area. The following week drop down to 3-4 times and then continue until all symptoms have gone. I recommend continuing use to prevent reinfection.
Salt Therapy works well as a preventative, it boosts your respiratory immune system and helps ward off colds and flu. You may still get the slight cold, however the more you salt the less intense and severe the illness.
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 colds & flu.
