Smoking - The primary risk factor for COPD is chronic smoking. Occupational exposure - When people are subjected to intense and prolonged exposure to workplace dust it can contribute to the development of airflow obstruction, even in non-smokers.
Air pollution - Studies in many countries have found that people who live in large cities have a higher rate of COPD compared to people who live in rural areas. Sufferers have increasing breathlessness when exercising or moving around and a persistent cough with phlegm that never seems to go away. Also, frequent chest infections, particularly in winter.
Salt is a natural antibacterial.
It reduces inflammation of the airways and help you breathe easier.
Salt is mucolytic, which means it helps to shift retained mucus.
During the Salt Therapy session, many of our patients notice a decrease in coughing frequency and intensity, and that it becomes easier to cough up mucus. COPD sufferers find that not only does Salt Therapy bring immediate relief in the short term but it also delays the frequency of any reoccurrence. Salt Therapy is a clinically proven natural, safe and beneficial method of treatment for every age group from 6 months old.
