More than 33,000 people are living with cystic fibrosis in the United States and approximately 1,000 new cases are diagnosed each year. Cystic fibrosis is a complex disease and the types and severity of symptoms can differ widely from person to person.
People with cystic fibrosis are at a greater risk of getting lung infections because of the thick, sticky mucus that builds up in their lungs, allowing germs to thrive and multiply. Lung infections, caused mostly by bacteria, are a serious and chronic problem for many people living with the disease. These can be treated, though not cured, by antibiotics and other medications.
Those with cystic fibrosis should work closely with their medical professional for an individualized treatment plan and consider adding salt therapy into a wellness routine.
Salt kills bacteria and helps to shift retained mucus to reduce the chance of infection. Salt is also anti-inflammatory which will assist in opening the airways to clear excessive mucus. Salt Therapy can bring much-needed relief but it also prevents symptoms from recurring so frequently.
Salt Therapy is a clinically proven natural, safe and beneficial method of treatment for every age group.
Depending on age and stage of your condition, 20-30 sessions are recommended for long term results. Sessions should be close together with 2-3 sessions per week Follow up sessions are recommended to maintain optimal lung functions by clearing out retained mucus.
