COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) is a lung disease that makes it hard to breathe. Caused by damage to the lungs over many years, it usually results from smoking but can also be caused by breathing chemical fumes, dust or air pollution over time. Second-hand smoke also may damage the lungs. COPD is often a mix of 2 diseases:
Chronic Bronchitis (link to Bronchitis page) - the bronchial tubes (the airways that carry air to the lungs) get inflamed, make mucus and it becomes difficult to breathe.
Emphysema - Tiny air sacs in the lungs are like a balloon, and in a healthy person, they get bigger and smaller as you breathe in and out. But with emphysema, the air sacs are damaged and lose their stretch so less air gets in and out of the lungs. This leaves the sufferer with a feeling of shortness of breath.
COPD gets worse over time and the damage cannot be undone. But you can take steps to prevent more damage and to feel better with Salt Therapy.
Salt Therapy can bring much needed relieve through the inhalation of dry salt crystals. This is clinically proven to cleanse the respiratory system and to speed up the elimination of toxins.
Dry salt crystals work as a "Bronchial Brush" for the airways. This results in reducing inflammation and restoring the normal transport of mucus secretion. It also helps to free blockage in the Bronchi and Bronchioles, leading to better elimination of the residual tar and allergens.
Salt kills bacteria, which is a major element of bronchitis, and the dry micro particles of salt that are inhaled during a therapy session reduce inflammation and widen the airways. Salt Therapy also helps to shift mucus and reduce the chance of infection.
By visiting our Salt Rooms, Sauna or Private Booth and inhaling the saline aerosol, you can find safe and natural relief.
You can reduce the need for medication and alleviate coughing, shortness of breath and clear mucus/sticky phlegm. You can also strengthen your immune system to prolong remission times and improve your ability to live well.
Depending on age and severity, 20-30 sessions are recommended for long term results with the initial sessions close together. 3-4 sessions a week are suggested for the first month to notice results and the remainder of the sessions may be spaced out further, based on desired results.
For irreversible conditions, 2 to 3 month follow up sessions are recommended to maintain clear lungs.
