Does salt therapy help with inflammation?
Inflammation refers to the process by which the human body fights against injuries, infections, toxins, and other things that harm it in an attempt to heal itself. When the cells are damaged, the body releases chemicals triggering a response from the immune system.
However, chronic inflammation can also impact the tissues and organs of the body negatively. Symptoms of chronic inflammation include fatigue, abdominal pain, chest pain, and many more. There are various ways to treat inflammation. Let’s talk about salt therapy for inflammation.
What is Salt Therapy?
Salt therapy is a natural healing treatment for patients suffering from allergies or respiratory issues like the ones caused by inflammation.
- Decreases inflammation
- It opens up airway passages
- It helps eliminate toxins and allergens from the respiratory system.
Salt therapy takes place in a calm environment, and it’s safe, simple, and highly effective for treating inflammation. Both children and adults can benefit from salt therapy.
However, those pregnant or nursing should talk to their doctors before stepping into the salt room. Also, the Salt Therapy Association does not recommend salt therapy for those with contagious diseases, open wounds, severe hypertension, or active tuberculosis.
Salt therapy utilizes a machine called a halogenerator to disperse salty air in a salt cave or spa. When in this space, you are required to sit down and relax while breathing the salty air and probably meditating. Some spas offer yoga and meditation classes in addition to salt therapy.
More on Salt Therapy
A salt cave uses pharmaceutical-grade salt that is 100% sodium chloride. When the salt particles are inhaled, they break up mucus, reducing inflammation. Most spas use cutting-edge technology to size the salt particles making them ideal for everyone. Salt therapy is not only highly effective for inflammation within the body but is also beneficial for other things.
Research indicates that taking too much salt causes high blood pressure. But with our salt rooms, the fine salt particles do not enter the digestive tract; they go to the respiratory system. This way, the salt particles won’t cause health problems.
As previously mentioned, salt rooms have halogenerator’s which provide what is known as salt therapy or halotherapy. This cutting-edge technology is beneficial and ideal for everyone. The halogenerator crushes salt and then disperses it into the air. This creates a great health benefit for all, but particularly those with respiratory and skin conditions. Halogenerators can also prevent and treat the common cold and flu, reduce snoring, strengthen the immune system, and so much more!
The Bottom Line
Salt therapy is a natural, safe, and effective remedy for treating inflammation. The therapy takes place in a salt cave or spa and is a relaxing and rejuvenating experience for all. The period for taking the therapy varies depending on factors like the type of condition you’re treating and your body’s response to the therapy.
