Salt Therapy and Halotherapy Room

Can Salt Therapy Benefit Respiratory Illness?

Have you ever wondered what the benefits of therapy with salt can do?  American Spa highlights an interesting feature on Salt Therapy, also called Halotherapy, and the benefits they serve for Respiratory Illness in their November 7, 2017 issue written by Brianna Shaw.  A nonprofit organization called Salt Innovation, located in Fremont, CA, highlights thebenefits of salt therapy.  Salt Innovation, recently started researching the improvement of respiratory function with salt therapy.  Patients who experience respiratory or other illnesses will definitely appreciate this.  The study findings’ should be well received with scientific, medical, and wellness communities across the world.

There are many health benefits for respiratory and skin conditions with dry salt therapy treatments.  According to the Salt Therapy Association, “Our mission is to improve the knowledge and understanding of Himalayan salt therapy for human diseases,” says Idrees Munir, Ph.D., founder of Salt Innovation. “Working with experts in the field and creating a global network by enhancing the education and research, we hope to focus salt therapy options for asthma and allergies and work towards improvement of patient’s quality of life.”

A study in the New England Journal of Medicine has shown that people suffering from cystic fibrosis, exposed to hypertonic saline or salt water, noticing an improvement in lung function.  “Cystic fibrosis is a progressive genetic disease that causes persistent lung infections”.  Isn’t it refreshing to find out that natural remedies can work better than taking medication?  I am certain this is the reason why Salt Innovation would like to perform further research for improved health benefits and a better quality of life for patients with various illnesses.  Who would have thought that Salt Innovation will be establishing a project designed to perform empirical medical research near the biggest salt mine in the world.  Tahir Heart Institute is a world-known cardiac hospital with two salt chambers, which is where the research will be taking place. Participants with mild to moderate asthma will be taking part in this preliminary research.  Have you experienced Salt Therapy?  Let us know what you think!
