Salt therapy is a drug free treatment that reproduces the natural micro climate of a salt cave by dispersing a dry salt aerosol in high concentrations in a halo room where the surfaces are covered with layers of salt. Then dry salt aerosol is pumped into the room to relieve a variety of symptoms and conditions without any known side effects.
Allergies effect about 50 million people in the United States, affecting as many as 30% of adults and 40% of children according to a study done by the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology. Some of the most common triggers for indoor/outdoor allergies are: Tree, grass and weed pollen. Along with Mold spores and probably the most prevalent, especially in the south, pet/animal dander.
Salt therapy provides a natural allergy treatment to clear mucal passages of build-up and phlegm. As a result of it’s sanitizing effect, salt therapy also reduces reactions triggered by allergies to dust, pollen or pollution as well as supports the immune system in staying strong.
Halotherapy (salt therapy) will have a positive effect on the blood microcirculation of the skin. It revitalizes the skin by increasing skin turgor, stimulating growth and improving hair health. Your skin is not only free from psoriasis but gets a new lease on life. Salt therapy has been proven to have a multidimensional positive effect on various forms of dermatitis, including acute symptoms of acne, psoriasis, and eczema.
Depositing on open skin areas, haloaerosol increases activity of skin ion channels, stimulating cell growth and regeneration. Dry salt particles balance skin pH and autoflora, as well as reducing harmful bacteria and inflammation. After a series of treatments, study subjects have shown decreased itching, decreased or resolved scaling of the skin, and the drying and healing of small fissures, scratches and exudative symptoms, the salt clears your airways and skin of allergens like dust, smoke and pollen and fungi making it healthy again.
Halotherapy also removes toxins and impurities from your skin that exasperate psoriasis. Skin disorders like psoriasis are often caused by exposure to allergens which triggers the disease. Halotherapy increases your resistance to psoriasis and decreases the chances of falling victim to psoriasis–even if you are exposed to the allergens that cause it.
Skin and respiratory disease are often coexistent, and dermatitis is associated with other issues of the immune system. The effects of inhaled salt particles on the respiratory tract decrease bacteria and improve bronchial drainage, thus decreasing overall toxicity and reducing the likelihood of future outbreaks. The sterile environment and negative ions relax and modulate the nervous system, freeing the body from the stresses of external stimuli and initiating healing and re-balancing.
Multiple studies in Russia have shown salt therapy to be effective in the relief of dermatitis symptoms, and of potential long-term benefit as part of a total body approach to healing. Halotherapy not only gives you healthy skin but also revitalizes your entire being. Your energy levels will increase and you will be better equipped to face the world. You will feel more relaxed and even sleep better!
Within the salt room, a halogenerator pumps pharmaceutical-grade sodium chloride (salt) into the air. As the salt is inhaled, it travels through the sinuses and respiratory tract absorbing moisture, cleansing toxins, clearing mucus, killing bacteria and reducing inflammation.
For decades, salt has been known for its anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties. It’s also known to help loosen mucus build-up (phlegm), as well as support clear breathing from conditions like asthma and bronchitis. Studies have shown that people with chronic upper respiratory conditions, seasonal allergies and sinusitis can all benefit from halotherapy (salt therapy).
Salt contains approx 80 mineral elements required by the body. This makes salt therapy a viable natural alternative to relieve symptoms and treat many health issues. Studies have shown that treatment in a salt room is effective in relieving a variety of respiratory illnesses, including:
- Sinus infections, sinusitis
- Cystic Fibrosis
- Whooping cough
- Helping repair lungs after quit smoking
Salt therapy can also help prevent respiratory viruses, including the common cold and flu. Children and adults who experience chronic or multiple colds from public environments (school, day care, work) and poor indoor ventilation can benefit from a halotherapy session (or several, depending on severity).
Halotherapy is a 100% natural, safe and drug-free treatment. It provides effective long-term relief (proven by studies). Whether it’s used as a complementary treatment to prescribed medications or as a stand-alone treatment, people find sometimes dramatic benefits that add to a better quality of life. And for children, Halotherapy works exceedingly well in relieving various symptoms in a non-invasive, easy way while they play.
Halotherapy should be avoided for people suffering from:
- Acute-stage diseases of bronchi and lungs
- Hypertension stage 2
- Cardiac insufficiency
- Chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases with symptoms of the third stage of chronic lung insufficiency
- All internal diseases with decompensation
- A fever
If you suffer from cancer or chronic diseases, please consult your Physician before Halotherapy.
