Allergies and Salt Therapy

Posted by with No Comments
  1. Airborne allergens, ranging from pollen and dust to mold spores, per dander and fibers, are the most common reasons for allergies, with estimated millions of people allergic to these substances. If allergies are not treated, they can also lead to nasal polyps or swollen nasal turbinates. Common symptoms are: coughing; wheezing; red, swollen eyes; sore throat; frequent nosebleeds; postnasal drip; mouth ulcers; heartburn; irritability and depression.

    Outside allergens: pollen, grasses etc
    Indoor allergens: pet dander, dust mites, mold spores etc
    Inhalation of salt aerosol is clinically proven to cleanse the respiratory system of the human body and to speed up the elimination of toxins. The size of the particles is the same as in natural Salt Caves — 1-5 μm. These so-called breathable particles penetrate into the bronchial tree in the form of finest crystals. diffused dry saline works as a “bronchial brush” for the airways.

    A salt aerosol proved to have bactericidal effects, cleansing microbial flora of the respiratory tract, slowing down bacterial growth and increasing resistance to respiratory tract diseases. Salt aerosol is a well known decongestant; it reduces inflammation widening of the airway passages, restoring the normal transport of mucous secretion and free blockages in the bronchi leading to rapid elimination of the residual tar and foreign allergens. It also has a hypo sensitizing effect: the body becomes less sensitive to a substance producing an allergic reaction and immune-modulating effect: it’s reducing IgE levels in the body. IgE is the antibody involved in allergic reactions.

    Dry sodium chloride aerosol eliminates airborne pollen particles from the airways. The air composition strengthens immunity and better immunity decreases allergic reaction to pollen and other allergens. The treatment’s efficacy is estimated at 75 – 98%.

    Patients usually stop using antihistamine, steroids and other drugs after 10-15 sessions; not because we ask them to but because they no longer need them.

    Salt Therapy is 100% natural, safe and drug-free, providing effective long-term relief for people suffering from hay fever. It can be used as a complementary treatment to prescribed medications or as a sole treatment. When Salt Therapy is used as a complimentary treatment, it can increase the effectiveness of prescribed medications, and decrease the amount prescribed medication. In order to help you choose evidence-based complementary/alternative treatment we would like you to get a better understanding of asthmatic disease and the treatment options available.

    Salt Therapy Background
    A few significant years of the history of Salt Therapy:

    Speleotherapy treatment discovered in 1843
    Medical device developed in 1989
    Speleotherapy clinic established in Toronto in 2001
    The Salt Cave clinic established in London in 2008
    15000 clients were treated in 3 years by us
    6 branches are operating under our brand in Earlsfield (London), Bexleyheath, Tunbridge Wells (Kent), Edinburgh (Scotland), Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and in Johannesburg
    Hypertonic saline aerosol inhalation treatment or Salt Therapy is clinically proven:

    To clear mucus from the airways thus removing airflow obstruction
    To enhance mucus clearance mechanism in both asthmatic and healthy subjects
    To balance airway-surface liquid
    To provide anti-inflammatory and bactericidal effects
    To reduce bronchial hyper-responsiveness
    To improve lung function
    To help clear unwanted inhaled particles from lungs
    As a drug-free treatment for asthma, bronchitis, CF and sinusitis
    Salt Therapy helps treat all major processes acting in the bronchi: swelling, inflammation, excessive mucus and bacterial infection. Salt is known for its bactericidal effect. Nowadays, salt is even used in swimming pools instead of chlorine to kill bacteria. Salt Therapy is also very effective in killing bacteria found in the mucus.

    In most patients, after a course of Salt Therapy, airways become normal and symptoms disappear.
