The respiratory system contains bronchi (small tubes carrying air in and out of the lungs) which can become inflamed and more sensitive than usual in people who suffer with Asthma. When a person with Asthma comes into contact with something that irritates their lungs, the airways narrow and the muscles around them tighten, there is also an increase in the production of sticky mucus (phlegm).

  • Wheezing (high-pitched whistling sounds when breathing out)

  • Cough, worse particularly at night

  • Difficulty in breathing

  • Chest tightness

How The Salt Clinic Can Help

For people suffering from asthma, Salt Therapy can not only bring much-needed relief, but also prevent the frequent recurrence of your symptoms. Prescription drugs such as inhalers provide a short-term fix, leaving the underlying problem unchanged once an attack has passed.

Salt Therapy is different because:

  • Kill bacteria (the salt dries out germs and bacteria in your respiratory system)

  • It is Anti-Inflammatory (Based on clinical studies the dry, saline-diffused air reduces inflammation in the whole respiratory tract)

  • It has Mucolytic effects (loosens excessive mucus, speeds the elimination of toxins)

  • Removes pathogen agents (airborne pollen)

  • Strengthens the immune system and restores energy levels

  • It reduces IgE levels (the immune system won’t over-react to asthma/allergy triggers)

As a result of Salt Therapy, inflammation and mast cell response within the bronchi reduces and the quality and function of breathing improves. Thanks to the desensitization of the immune response, sleep patterns will improve and acute attacks and the need for medication will substantially decrease. This means the child will have more energy to play or exercise and become stronger and more resilient to every day infections.

How Often Should You Attend

  • Depending on age and severity, 15 to 30 sessions are recommended to achieve long term results.

  • The sessions should be frequent, about 2 or 3 a week is suggested.

  • In most children, after a course of salt therapy airways become normal and symptoms disappear.

  • The treatment's efficacy is estimated up to 98%.

  • Typically, a child coming for two months will suffer no symptoms for 10 months.

  • Most children do one to two Salt Therapy courses a year. In between they might come back for some top-up sessions if needed.

"Amazing results and everyone is so friendly and knowledgeable about the treatment. I got relief from sinusitis so I brought my granddaughter when her Asthma got bad and we have never looked back. I can’t thank the salt clinic enough for their service and results."

"My little boy (3) has Asthma. He’s had 2 antibiotics and 1 steroid in a 3-week period. It didn’t clear his persistent cough and he was very wheezy. I honestly couldn’t believe the difference after the first visit. A full night’s sleep without a single cough. Currently on session 5 and the change is amazing. Highly recommended."

"I couldn’t recommend the salt clinic enough. So many trips to doctors and hospitals with Asthma and no need any more plus my son has fun playing while his lungs heal."
