Long COVID

After recovering from a coronavirus infection (COVID-19), many people start feeling better within a few weeks. Unfortunately, this isn’t the case for everyone. Some individuals experience prolonged health issues and require more time to recover. This situation has led to the development of alternative therapeutic methods aimed at improving respiratory capacity and alleviating symptoms associated with this illness.

Post-COVID syndrome: What you need to know

COVID-19 is a highly infectious disease caused by a new type of coronavirus with the scientific name SARS-CoV-2. It first emerged at the end of 2019 in Wuhan, China, and quickly spread worldwide, causing a pandemic.

The coronavirus can cause common symptoms like a cold, cough, respiratory difficulties, and fever, but it can also lead to life-threatening respiratory diseases such as Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS).

The recovery time from COVID-19 varies from person to person and can take several weeks to months. However, if various health issues persist for more than 12 weeks after SARS-CoV-2 infection, it is already considered post-COVID syndrome, also referred to as “chronic COVID” or “long COVID”.

Long COVID symptoms

  • extreme exhaustion or fatigue
  • problems with memory or concentration
  • shortness of breath
  • pain in muscles, joints or the chest
  • changes to smell and taste
  • delayed worsening of symptoms after exertion or exercise
  • sleep disturbance
  • headaches
  • dizziness after sitting up or standing
  • skin rashes

How does salt therapy help with long COVID symptoms

Salt therapy has been used for centuries to treat respiratory and skin conditions, and has gained popularity in recent years as an effective method to fight against variety of long COVID symptoms.

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.

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.

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.

Halotherapy elevates oxygen levels in the blood, facilitating its more efficient utilization. It also promotes relaxation and reduces stress, thereby increasing overall energy levels and supporting faster recovery from physical exhaustion.

In addition to these specific benefits, salt therapy can also help to boost the immune system, making it easier for the body to fight off bacterial and viral infections and illnesses in the respiratory system. This can help to reduce the severity and duration of long COVID symptoms.
