More About Halotherapy

Halotherapy works on all levels of health in your system, providing immediate therapeutic results. You’ll feel better in just 45 minutes! The salt room is a negative ion environment. Negative ions are considered ‘vitamins in the air,’ which your body absorbs during the halotherapy session. Negative ions increase oxygen levels in the blood to combat fatigue and exhaustion, aid in blood purification to help restore a healthy pH balance to the blood, increase metabolism and boost the immune system. Negative ions also help to stabilize brain function and balance the autonomic nervous system. Digestion improves as it increases the production of digestive enzymes and eases stomach and intestinal tension. Negative ions also assist in cell rejuvenation by stimulating cell metabolism. Halotherapy can be used as a complementary treatment to prescribed medications for health conditions or as a primary treatment for individuals wishing to take a more holistic approach to wellness. When used as a complementary treatment it can increase the effectiveness of prescribed medications, and reduce dependence on medications. Unlike many conventional pharmaceutical approaches, halotherapy has no side effects as it is 100% natural. The micro particles of salt work therapeutically be destroying bacteria and fungi in the body and boosting the immune system.

Ear infections:
Halotherapy can be an effective method of easing symptoms of an ear ache or an ear infection. Salt therapy helps reduce edema of the Eustachian tube (the tube that originates in the back of the nose and ends in the middle ear). The salt particles will help widen the nasal passages, resulting in better drainage and increased supply of oxygen behind the tympanic membrane, leading to a decrease in infection. Sometimes only one halotherapy session is needed to provide relief.

Sinus relief:
Halotherapy eases symptoms of sinusitis by clearing blockages in the sinus tract. The natural salt particles draw out the fluid in your sinus tract, to aid in clearing mucus. It will help reduce edema of the nasal mucosa, and widens the airway passage in the nose to facilitate sinus drainage. It also helps reduce infection due to its antibacterial properties. The course of treatment varies depending on the individual; anywhere from 6-15 sessions are recommended. Results may last for up to 12 months or more, depending on the severity of the sinusitis.

 

THE SCIENCE BEHIND HALOTHERAPY

Since the 1980s dry salt aerosol, administered in halochambers, has been used as a treatment for respiratory conditions, allergies, as well as sinus and ear infections due to its anti-pathogenic, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. It has also been shown to treat conditions of the skin, such as psoriasis, eczema and acne. The science behind halotherapy dates back to the mid 1800s when a Polish physician first observed Polish salt miners, regularly exposed to a saline environment, seldom experienced respiratory conditions. This led to the birth of speleotherapy (salt cave therapy). In some countries, abandoned salt mines have been used to create hospital dorms to help patients heal rapidly. Some countries have also used abandoned salt mines for relieving stress, anxiety and depression in psychiatric patients.


The curative factor in halotherapy is the use of dry salt aerosol, created by a generator which crushes pharma grade salt into small particles the size of 1 to 5 micrometres (smaller than particles contained in cigarette smoke).Dry salt aerosol produced by the halogenerator helps alleviate bronchial inflammation, remove pathogenic agents and speed up mucociliary transport, cleansing the bronchial airways like a tooth brush cleans teeth. There is no limit on the number of halotherapy sessions a person can take, as it is 100% natural, and suitable for all ages. Depending on the ailment, 4-24 sessions may be required for results.
