Asthma bronchiale

If you or a loved one suffer from asthma, you know how challenging it can be to manage the symptoms and maintain a good quality of life. While there is no cure for asthma, there are ways to manage the symptoms, such as inhalers and medications. However, some people are turning to natural remedies like salt therapy to help ease their symptoms.

If you or someone you care about suffers from asthma, you surely know how challenging the symptoms can be and how difficult it is to maintain a good quality of life. Although asthma cannot be completely cured, its symptoms can be managed with inhalers and medications. Therefore, some people seek relief through natural methods such as salt therapy.

Recognizing asthma

Asthma bronchiale is a chronic inflammatory condition of the respiratory system, primarily impacting the bronchi. Asthmatics have highly sensitive airways that react strongly to various triggers like smoke, allergens, viruses, bacteria, physical exertion, cold, and more. When these triggers come into contact with the airways, inflammation and swelling occur, resulting in a constriction of airflow through the bronchial tubes, notably during exhalation.

Asthma can cause an excessive volume of air to remain trapped in the lungs, hindering the intake of fresh air during subsequent inhalation. Insufficient exhalation and excessive inhalation can lead to air accumulation in the chest. These complications often result in episodes of breathlessness and coughing, commonly referred to as asthma attacks. These tend to be most severe during the night and early morning.

Bronchial asthma affects individuals across various age groups, and recent years have witnessed a significant rise in cases, particularly among children. While modern medical science has not yet found a complete cure for asthma, most asthmatics can effectively manage their symptoms through medication, keeping the impact of this condition to a minimum.

How salt therapy works for asthma

If you’re living with asthma, it’s crucial to adhere to your doctor’s recommendations, which often include the use of prescribed medications and inhalers. Nevertheless, apart from medication, several other effective approaches can substantially enhance the quality of life for those with asthma. These options encompass seaside or mountain getaways, sauna sessions, polarium visits, and particularly, salt therapy.

Salt therapy involves the inhalation of fine salt microparticles that traverse the respiratory system and provide numerous beneficial effects for those with asthma.

The antibacterial properties of salt help in killing harmful bacteria, viruses, and allergens in the respiratory system, which cause inflammations and increased mucus production. This prevents further infection development.

Thanks to its natural anti-inflammatory properties, salt reduces inflammatory processes in the respiratory tract. This way, it reduces swelling in the respiratory passages, improves airway permeability, and facilitates breathing.

Inhaled salt micro-particles aid in dissolving accumulated mucus in the respiratory passages. This makes the mucus less viscous and easier to expel from the respiratory tract, improving its permeability.

Salt therapy helps reduce the level of IgE-type antibodies produced in the body in response to various allergens. As a result, the immune system reacts more mildly to allergenic triggers and builds its natural defenses against the specific condition.

The complex impact of salt particles on the respiratory system results in a substantial enhancement of breathing and a decrease in overall asthma symptoms.

Although even a less frequent sessions can provide relief, the crucial factor for achieving lasting results is maintaining consistency and regularity. This approach should continue until asthma symptoms begin to diminish. Once that occurs, you can gradually reduce the frequency of visits to our studio and incorporate salt therapy into your routine based on your individual preferences and availability. This will help bolster your immune system, enhance overall health, reduce stress, or serve as a relaxation method.

Why consider salt therapy for your health

While salt therapy cannot replace asthma medication, it can provide a safe and effective means to alleviate asthma symptoms. Regular halotherapy promotes overall respiratory well-being and can decrease the occurrence and intensity of asthma attacks. By combining medication with salt therapy, you can attain enhanced control over your asthma and enjoy an improved quality of life.
