How Salt Cave Therapy Can Help You Fight Colds & The Flu
The winter season is here and each year, the debilitating symptoms from colds and the flu seem to last longer and get more intense. It is estimated that between 5% to 20% of the United State's population will get the flu each year and that the average American will come down with a cold 3-4 times per year, resulting in missed days from work and school and daycare for children. At Floatopia Wellness, we offer salt cave therapy that will assist your immune system in fighting off colds and the flu this season.
More About Salt Cave Therapy
When it comes to salt cave therapy, it is a holistic, drug-free, natural therapy that uses microparticles of salt to promote better breathing, healthier skin, sounder sleep, as well as improved physical fitness, and endurance. Not only does salt cave therapy provides overall wellness, but it is also truly awesome in fighting colds and the flu by releasing dry salt aerosol.
Based on clinical studies, inhaling dry salt aerosol from salt caves reduces inflammation of the whole respiratory tract. When salt particles are inhaled and deposited in your bronchial tree system and on the mucus, the mucus starts to break down and you find it much easier to remove by coughing. The dry salt aerosol also has anti-bacterial properties and assists in cleansing the microbial flora of the respiratory tract, reducing inflammation of the airways and enabling the restoration of normal mucociliary clearance of the bronchi. This process increases your body’s natural resistance to respiratory tract infections.
The Benefits of Salt Cave Therapy When You're Under The Weather
1. It helps to increase activity in our body:
Salt levels affect activities of our cell, energy and blood sugar levels. It is a natural disinfectant, antimicrobial, antibacterial and more powerful than moist air.
2. Reduces inflammation and mucus in the lungs:
As mentioned earlier, inhaling dry salt aerosol and particles during salt cave therapy sessions reduces inflammation and mucus in the lungs, thereby improving respiratory conditions such as asthma, allergies, bronchitis, sinus congestion, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Studies have shown that inhaling hypertonic saline produces a sustained acceleration of mucus clearance and improves lung function.
3. Support for our body systems:
The calming and detoxifying effects that come with salt cave therapy can provide support for your immune, nervous and lymphatic systems. Salt ions from salt cave therapy sessions purify the air and increase lung capacity thereby reducing physical ailments for adults, children, as well as athletes.
Whether you’re suffering from colds, the flu, and other related symptoms, salt cave therapy can provide relief by opening your nasal airways, killing bacteria and providing speedy drainage of your sinuses. Even if you’re suffering from chest congestions from the cold, salt cave therapy help to accelerate the clearing of mucus from your lungs thereby making you breathe easier. Also, it will inhibit sneezing and coughing as well.
