Managing your asthma through bushfires and back-burning.
Exposure to bushfire smoke, either through controlled back-burning or random bushfires, is a run-of-the-mill part of Australian life. Strong winds can fill our city skies with thick smoke from a fire located 100’s of kilometres away, impacting the quality of air we breathe.
During periods of smoke-filled air, asthmatics are at at risk of experiencing aggravated symptoms, such as wheezing and tightening of the airways.
As part of an ongoing, proactive management plan, salt therapy can help to open the airways and reduce respiratory irritation caused by smoke exposure. The microscopic dry-salt particles breathed in during a session penetrate deep into the lungs, helping to clear out impurities and making it easier to breathe.
When smokey air makes staying indoors a safer option, a Dry Salt Inhaler (DSI) is a must. Completely portable and easy to use, the DSI contains unprocessed rock salt crystals from the famous Transylvanian Praid salt mine in Romania. Utilising the simple curative principles of breathing salty air, the DSI can help you breathe well in the comfort of your own home, or anywhere!
