Salt rooms provide a natural treatment for allergies
Did you know that salt room therapy can alleviate allergies? Thirty percent of adults are suffering from allergies. A more surprising fact is that 40 percent of children are also living with allergies.
If you’ve looked to over-the-counter medicines to ease allergy pains, only to be disappointed with the results then you’re not alone. However, it might be time to try halotherapy. Halotherapy is the breathing of salt particles to treat respiratory conditions. It dates back to the 12th century when people spent time in the salt caves of Eastern Europe and felt respiratory relief like never before. Doctors noticed that while coal miners were dying, salt miners experienced improved breathing. This news sent people flocking to salt caves for a chance to experience that same benefit. Luckily, you don’t need to travel to Eastern Europe to take advantage of the relief that salt offers.
If you’ve noticed nasal relief while visiting the beach or from a saline rinse, then you’ve begun to understand the healing power that salt holds. Salt rooms expand on this experience. By completely surrounding yourself with these powerful salt particles, you allow them to treat you from deep inside your respiratory system. And unlike over-the-counter medicines, halotherapy is safe for all ages. Salt is known to be anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and it also loosens mucus and phlegm.
This natural treatment is not only effective but it’s also therapeutic. Many people visit a salt room to alleviate allergies but then report additional benefits like better sleep, less snoring and less stress. Visit a salt room and enjoy the healing power of salt.
