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.

How Salt Therapy can help Cystic Fibrosis?

Salt Therapy is a natural non-invasive, drug-free therapy that offers the relief for Cystic Fibrosis sufferers. The inhalation of dry microscopic particles of salt that are breathed in whilst sitting and relaxing in our specially designed salt room assist the respiratory system to reduce inflammation, open the airways and clear excess congestion and mucus. The naturally found anti-histamine and anti-inflammatory properties of salt help to relieve inflammation in the airways and loosen mucus. The natural anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties help remove any pollutants or allergens that we are constantly breathing in from our environment, which can cause irritation in the lungs and a persistent cough.
