What is 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.

How Salt Therapy can help Bronchiolitis

Salt Therapy is a natural non-invasive, drug-free therapy that offers relief for bronchitis 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.
