Asthma

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).

Symptoms Of Asthma

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.

Asthma

Salt Therapy is different because:

  • Salt kills bacteria

  • It will widen the airways by reducing inflammation

  • It is mucolytic, (it helps to shift retained mucus) and therefore reduce the chance of infection

  • It reduces IgE levels, which means the immune system is less likely to over-react to asthma/allergy triggers

How Often Should You Attend?

  • Depending on age 10-30 sessions are recommended for long term results.

  • The sessions should be frequent; about two or three a week is suggested.

In most patients, after a course of Salt Therapy the airways become normal and symptoms disappear. The treatment's efficacy is estimated up to 98%. Most clients do 1 to 2 Salt Therapy courses a year. In between they might come back for some top-up sessions.

Bronchiectasis

Bronchiectasis is an abnormal widening of the airways. Mucus is produced by the body and is prone to infection. The main symptom is a cough which produces sputum and leads to constant tiredness.

Treatment often includes regular physiotherapy and courses of antibiotics, which in some cases may be long term. Inhalers and even surgery are other options.
The severity of people’s symptoms can vary widely.
People with bronchiectasis can also have chronic sinusitis, which can often cause an increase in mucus from the nose. When this happens, recurring chest infections are common as excessive mucus is a perfect place for bacteria to multiply.

How The Salt Clinic Can Help

  • It kills bacteria, which is a major element of bronchiectasis

  • It has mucolytic effects, meaning it helps to shift retained mucus and reduce the chance of infection

  • It is anti-inflammatory

  • It reduces IgE levels (the immune system becomes less oversensitive)

People who from suffer from bronchiectasis should consider Salt Therapy. It can bring much-needed relief and also prevents the frequency of symptoms occurring.

COPD

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a term used to describe chronic bronchitis and emphysema, both of which can cause narrowing of the airways and commonly occur together. There are over 100,000 people diagnosed with COPD in Ireland.

SYMPTOMS OF COPD

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.

MAIN CAUSES

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.

In most patients, after a course of Salt Therapy the airways become normal and symptoms disappear. The treatment's efficacy is estimated up to 98%. Most clients do one to two Salt Therapy courses a year. In between they might come back for some top-up sessions, if they start to feel unwell e.g. they are coming down with a cold.

SINUSITIS

In most people, sinusitis develops after a cold or flu. When the lining of the sinuses becomes swollen, the swelling interferes with the normal flow of mucus. Trapped mucus then fills the sinuses which causes an uncomfortable sensation of pressure and provides an excellent environment for the growth of infection-causing bacteria.

Acute sinusitis means that the infection develops quickly (over a few days) and lasts a short time. Many cases of acute sinusitis last a week or so but it is not unusual for it to last 2 to 3 weeks.

SYMPTOMS OF SINUSITIS

  • A blocked or runny nose. If your nose produces green or yellow mucus then you probably have a bacterial infection.

  • Pain and tenderness in the face (near the infected sinuses). You may experience a throbbing pain or pressure that is worse when you move your head or a pain in your jaw when you eat.

  • A high temperature.

Other Possible Symptoms Include:

  • Feeling tired

  • A cough

  • A sinus headache

  • Pressure in your ears

  • Bad breath (halitosis)

  • Loss of taste and smell

COUGH

Coughs are incredibly common especially during winter months. It is one of the most common reasons for people to go and see their GP. A cough is a reflex action to clear your airways of mucus and irritants, foreign particles and microbes. Coughs can be dry or chesty. They usually clear up within two weeks.

DRY OR CHESTY COUGH

Dry and Tickly coughs are usually felt in the back of the throat as a tickle that starts you coughing. It happens when the throat and upper airways become inflamed. Both dry coughs and tickly coughs are known as non-productive coughs (no phlegm). A dry cough is most likely the result of infection by cold and flu viruses. Your brain thinks the inflammation in your throat and upper airways is a foreign object and tries to remove it by coughing. It can also be triggered by atmospheric pollutants (such as cigarette smoke) irritating your throat.

Chesty coughs (mucus coughs) are caused by an excessive amount of mucus in the chest. The cough is helpful because it clears mucus from your lungs. When common cold or flu viruses enter the respiratory system, mucus is produced to clear away the bacteria and help to fight infection. This increased mucus can gather in the respiratory system and a cough reflex is triggered to help remove the extra phlegm.

HOW CAN THE SALT CLINIC HELP?

Salt Therapy is a clinically proven, natural, safe and beneficial method of treatment for every age group from 6 months. By visiting The Salt Clinic and breathing in the saline aerosol generated by our medical device it can significantly help to:

  • Salt is a natural antibacterial.

  • It reduces inflammation of the airways

  • Salt is mucolytic, which means it helps to shift retained mucus

  • Remove pathogen agents (airborne pollen)

  • Strengthen the immune system, restore the energy levels

  • It reduces IgE levels - the immune system becomes less oversensitive

Salt Therapy helps treat swelling, inflammation, excessive mucus and bacterial infection. As a result of Salt Therapy, inflammation and mast cell response within the bronchi reduces, so the quality and function of breathing improves. Thanks to the desensitisation of the immune response, sleep patterns will improve and acute attacks and the need for medication will substantially decrease. This means that you will have more energy, become stronger and more resilient to every day infections.

ECZEMA / PSORIASIS

Eczema is a highly individual condition which varies from person to person and comes in many different forms, but is not contagious. In mild cases, the skin is dry, scaly, red and itchy. In more severe cases there may be weeping, crusting and bleeding. Constant scratching causes the skin to split and bleed and leaves it open to infection.

Psoriasis can start at any age, but most often develops in adults under 35 years old. When a person has psoriasis, their skin replacement process will speed up and it takes just a few days to replace skin cells that usually take 21-28 days. This overproduction of skin cells builds up to form raised ‘plaques’ on the skin.

HOW CAN THE SALT CLINIC HELP?

Salt Therapy is a clinically proven, natural, safe and beneficial method of treatment for every age group from 6 months. By visiting The Salt Clinic and breathing in the saline aerosol generated by our medical device and also allowing it to come into contact with the skin it can significantly help to:

  • Kill bacteria that may be present.

  • Salt is anti-inflammatory so it will reduce any swelling and improve circulation on the skins surface

  • Reduces IgE levels - Internally, Salt Therapy helps to lower the IgE level which is a measure of antibodies which is often high in people with allergies. Salt Therapy helps to lower this level so the immune system does not over-react to try to deal with the problem.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD YOU ATTEND?

  • 15-20 sessions are recommended for long term results.

  • With irreversible conditions, you may need to come for more sessions if you feel you need them

  • The sessions should be frequent, about 2 to 3 per week is suggested. In most patients, after a course of Salt Therapy symptoms disappear. The treatment's efficacy is estimated up to 98%. Most clients do one to two Salt Therapy courses a year. In between they might come back for some top-up sessions.

How It Works

Salt has many beneficial properties including:

  • Anti-bacterial

  • Anti-inflammatory

  • Mucolytic effects: loosens excessive mucus and speeds up mucociliary transport

  • Eliminates pathogen agents (airborne pollen)

  • Lessens IgE level (immune system oversensitivity)

  • Strengthen the immune system

During a session, clients breathe in the dry, salt-enriched air into the lungs, the salt is so fine it reaches deep into the lungs and begins to reduce inflammation, kill bacteria and loosens phlegm, which begins to clear rapidly so clients have more lung capacity. The salt will also have anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial effect on the skin whilst reducing your IgE levels and your sensitivity to allergies. Salt therapy can help to:

  • Lessen the need for inhalers and antibiotics

  • Makes breathing easier after just a couple of sessions

  • Improve lung function

  • Reduce the amount of hospital admittances

  • Reduce the amount of sick days from school / work

  • Ease sneezing, coughing, and shortness of breath

  • Clear phlegm and sticky mucus from lungs

  • Increase the prevention of respiratory tract diseases

  • Fortify your immune system

  • Extend remission times

  • Improve general health and quality of life

  • The treatment's effectiveness is projected at 75-98% contingent on circumstances

  • Relieve irritations and inflammation of the skin

  • Improve sport performance for athletes
