Sinusitis

What is Sinusitis?

Sinusitis means your sinuses are inflamed. The cause can be an infection or another problem. Your sinuses are
hollow air spaces within the bones surrounding the nose. They produce mucus, which drains into the nose. If your nose is swollen, this can block the sinuses and cause pain.

There are several types of sinusitis, including

  • Acute, which lasts up to 4 weeks
  • Sub acute, which lasts 4 to 12 weeks
  • Chronic, which lasts more than 12 weeks and can continue for months or even years
  • Recurrent, with several attacks within a year

How Salt Therapy can help Sinusitis

Salt Therapy is a natural gentle, non invasive, drug free therapy that offers support to the relief of sinus 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 nasal and sinus area. Salt has natural anti-histamine and antiinflammatory properties that reduce symptoms and relieve inflammation and congestion in the sinus area. As the dry salt is breathed in, it passes through the nasal airways breaking up or loosening congestion, helping the body to expel any excess mucus or dry up the sniffle and post nasal drip that can be present with some sinus issues.

Salt Therapy works well as a preventative treatment as we are constantly breathing in pollutants and allergens which can irritate the sinus. 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.
