Salt Therapy as a Treatment for Bronchitis

Salt cleanses the respiratory system and speeds up the elimination of toxins. Salt has the following properties:

  • Antibacterial
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Loosens excessive mucus and speeds up mucociliary transport
  • Removes pathogens (ie., airborne pollen)
  • Reduces IgE level (immune system oversensitivity)

Salt particles penetrate deep into the lungs to treat damaged tissue. Sometimes symptoms subside for up to 12 months following salt therapy. Additionally persons suffering from chronic bronchitis who do a halotherapy course report:

  • Reduction in the need for inhalers, steroids and antibiotics
  • Breathing iseasier after just a few sessions
  • Improved lung function
  • Reduction in the number of hospital admissions
  • Alleviates sneezing, coughing, and shortness of breath
  • Clears mucus and sticky phlegm from the lungs
  • Increase the resistance to respiratory tract diseases
  • Strengthens the immune system
  • Prolonged remission times
