Pneumonia is an infection in one or both of the lungs. Many germs, such as bacteria, viruses, and fungi, can cause pneumonia. You can also get pneumonia by inhaling a liquid or chemical. People most at risk are older than 65 or younger than 2 years of age, or already have health problems.
Symptoms of pneumonia vary from mild to severe. See your doctor promptly if you:
- Have a high fever
- Have shaking chills
- Have acough with phlegm that doesn’t improve or gets worse
- Develop shortness of breath with normal daily activities
- Have chest pain when you breathe or cough
- Feel suddenly worse after a cold or the flu
Commonly, there are 2 kinds of pneumonia;
– Lobar pneumonia is when there is an infection in one lobe of the lungs.
– Bronchial pneumonia is when there is an infection in both lungs or in more than one lobe.
Pneumonia is affecting around 450 million people worldwide per year, seven percent of the population, and has a result of about 4 million deaths, in developing countries mostly. People of all ages can develop pneumonia, from babies to elders. In fact, when it cuts the suffering associated with terminal illness, pneumonia has been called “the old man’s friend”.
How can Home Salt Therapy help?
With the help of Portable Salt Therapy, the salt particles will dehydrate the virus or bacteria not letting them spread around. The salt in the air you’ll be breathing will certainly help your lungs to clear the bacteria, virus, and mucus allowing a fast recovery! Salt has numerous properties that contribute to the effects you will benefit from by using the AirSalter™ device. The benefit comes from the salt’s ability to reduce inflammation from the airways walls, and improve the mucus flow in the respiratory system.
