Asthma

Asthma is one kind of lung disease in which the person experiences breathing problems, and coughing due to an inadequate supply of air to the lungs. It has been known to be a long term or a chronic disease. As we already know, it is an ailment of the airways contained in the lungs. In Asthma, these airways become blocked due to inflammation and the pathways are narrowed. Generally, the individual suffering from this disease has great difficulty in breathing due to obstructed airways. During an attack, he might complain of chest tightness accompanied by bouts of persistent coughing. The person experiences shortness of breath, and sometimes, the breathing process becomes noisy producing a whistling sound. This noisy breathing is also called as wheezing. The attacks occur more frequently in the nights or early mornings.

How Salt Therapy can help Asthma

Salt Therapy is a natural, gentle, non-invasive, drug-free therapy that offers to support the relief of asthma symptoms. By sitting in our specially designed salt room your respiratory system will be exposed to microscopic dry aerosol particles of salt that are inhaled into the lungs. Salt has natural anti-histamine, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and anti-fungal properties which help relieve inflammation and congestion in the airways. As the dry salt is breathed in, it passes through the airways breaking up or loosening congestion and relieving the inflammation in the airways that causes the irritation and narrowing of the airways.The salt allows you to breathe easier and helps the body to expel congestion and mucus.

Salt Therapy works well as a preventative treatment as we are constantly breathing in pollutants and allergens which can irritate lungs with asthma. When our lungs are weakened, it can have a significant effect on our health. The smallest cold can result in weeks of sickness. Breathing in salt as part of your ongoing maintenance can help the body to heal faster and remove irritants fast. Salt Therapy is not a cure, it is a support for your lungs to help open and relieve inflammation and congestion throughout your airways.

Bronchiolitis

Bronchiolitis is a common lung infection among infants. It can cause coughing, wheezing, and a hard time breathing. While most cases can be treated at home, it’s also the leading reason infants are admitted to a hospital. Adults can get it, too, but it’s very rare and usually related to other infections or injuries.

It happens when small breathing tubes in the lungs called bronchioles to become infected. This causes the tubes to clog up with mucus so there’s not enough room for air to get in and out of the lungs. It usually affects children younger than 2 years old in winter and early spring.

Cystic Fibrosis

Cystic fibrosis is an inherited disorder that causes severe damage to the lungs, digestive system and other organs in the body.
Cystic fibrosis affects the cells that produce mucus, sweat and digestive juices. These secreted fluids are normally thin and slippery. But in people with cystic fibrosis, a defective gene causes the secretions to become sticky and thick. Instead of acting as a lubricant, the secretions plug up tubes, ducts and passageways, especially in the lungs and pancreas.

Although cystic fibrosis requires daily care, people with the condition are usually able to attend school and work, and often have a better quality of life than people with cystic fibrosis had in previous decades. Improvements in screening and treatments mean people with cystic fibrosis now may live into their mid- to late 30s, on average, and some are living into their 40s and 50s.
