Main symptoms of asthma can be wheezing, breathlessness, tight chest and coughing. The symptoms can sometimes get temporarily worse. This is known as an asthma attack.
HOW CAN SALT THERAPY HELP?
Salt therapy kills the bacteria in your respiratory system by drying out all the germs and bacteria. Salt is anti-inflammatory so it helps to reduce the swelling in the whole respiratory tract, it has mucolytic effects by loosening of the excessive mucus, salt speeds up the elimination of toxins. Also helps to remove pathogen agents like airborne pollen from the linen of respiratory system. Salt therapy will reduce IgE levels by reducing the inflammation and the mast cell response within the bronchi, the quality and function of breathing improve. This leads to the balancing of the other bodily system. As a result, the frequency of the acute asthma attacks and the need for medication will substantially decrease. This means that you will experience more energy, better sleep patterns, and better strength and resilience to everyday infections.

Depending on age, severity and duration of your asthma, a minimum of 10-30 sessions is recommended for long-term results. The sessions should be spaced closely with 3-4 per week in the first 4-6 weeks, then decreasing in frequency to 2-3 weekly for the following weeks. It is usually recommended to keep having 2-4 sessions a month-long term to ensure a better response to chest infections. Typically it can take 3-4 sessions to start seeing results and over 10 sessions to see consistent change.
