Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is an umbrella term used to describe progressive lung diseases including emphysema, chronic bronchitis, refractory (non-reversible) asthma, and some forms of bronchiectasis. This disease is characterized by increasing breathlessness.
According to the COPD Foundation, COPD affects an estimated 24 million individuals in the U.S., and over half of them have symptoms of COPD and do not know it. Early screening can identify COPD before major loss of lung function occurs.
The multiple effects of Dry Salt Therapy work to cleanse the respiratory system and speed up the elimination of toxins in the body. Inflammation is reduced due to natural properties of the inhaled salt particles which also thin the bronchial and nasal secretions. The smallest micro particle of salt reach the lower respiratory system and work as a “bronchial toothbrush” for the airways.
Additionally some persons suffering from COPD who do a halotherapy course of treatment anecdotally report:
- Reduction in the need for inhalers, steroids and antibiotics
- Breathing is easier after just a few sessions
- Improved lung function
- Reduction in the number of hospital admissions
- Alleviates sneezing, coughing, and shortness of breath
- Clears mucus and sticky phlegm from the lungs
- Increase the resistance to respiratory tract diseases
- Strengthens the immune system
