What is Pneumonia?

Pneumonia is a lung infection that can be mild or so severe that you have to go to the hospital. It happens if an infection causes the air sacs of the lungs (doctors call these “alveoli” to fill up with fluid or pus. That can make it hard for you to breathe in enough oxygen to reach your bloodstream.

Anyone can get this lung infection. But infants younger than age 2 and people over age 65 have the highest odds. That’s because their immune systems might not be strong enough to fight it.

How Salt Therapy can help Pneumonia

Salt Therapy is a natural gentle, non invasive, drug free therapy that offers support to the relief of pneumonia 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 excess congestion. The salt allows you to breathe easier and helps the body to expel congestion and mucus.
