The history behind salt therapy
For more than 20 years dry salt aerosol, administered in specially-designed halochambers, has been used to treat upper and lower respiratory conditions such as cold and flu, allergy, asthma, bronchitis, cystic fibrosis, sinus infection, sinusitis, rhinitis, hay fever and emphysema.
100% drug free, scientists and researchers developed salt therapy as a means of concentrating the positive effects of salt observed in nature.
It was in 1843 that the concept on which salt therapy is based was first published by a physician. After observing the remarkably low incidence of respiratory conditions in salt mine workers who were regularly exposed to air saturated with saline dust, the concept of speleotherapy (salt cave therapy) was born.
More recently, research published in the New England Journal of Medicine concluded that salt inhalation was a highly effective treatment for cystic fibrosis after observations among surfers led to clinical trials.
