Seasons

 

 

 

 

Salt Therapy has its benefits not just in the wintertime as so many people associate the treatment with, but all year round! The Indian summer we are having this autumn has kept the pollen count quite high and although it's great to see the sun out and about those with Hayfever, Allergies and Rhinitis can suffer bouts of attacks because of it.

 

Have a look at how salt therapy can benefit you, whatever the season:

Spring - Ah spring the time of the year when the sun reappears after being dormant for the months previous. The cold dark and dreary days of the winter - gone, or so we would hope. When spring comes let's face it...it doesn't change too much. February and March can be cold months and you wouldn't dream of walking outside without the coat (either a warm wooly or raincoat) in hand. Salt Therapy can help open you airways helping with Asthma, Sinusitis, COPD and Bronchitis.

Summer - The sun may be hiding behind the clouds at the start of the summer or only popping out now and again, but this doesn't stop the pollen count from rising. In May light winds and the sun combined are bad news for Hayfever sufferers. Allergies and a general change in weather can play havoc with our sinuses especially for those who have Asthma, Sinusitis, Allergies or Rhinitis. The salt treatment has a hyposensitizing effect: the body becomes less sensitive to a substance producing an allergic reaction: it reduces IgE levels in the body. IgE is the antibody involved in allergic reactions. 

Autumn - After the milder weather from the summer we start to pull out from storage, the knits and boots, wrapping up as the cold weather approaches. At this time of year children go back to school, the nights get darker and everyone wishes they were back enjoying any holidays they took over the summer months. You may be feeling run down and sluggish trying to get back into a routine. This is the perfect time to boost your immune system getting you ready for the winter ahead. If you experience Asthma, COPD, or feel the start of virus coming on, if you have a dry cough or are just not sleeping that well, Salt Therapy can help  with many of these symptoms.

Winter - This month obviously sees much wet and very cold weather, bringing with it the flu and viruses which can spread easily. Our salt rooms help to kill and fight bacteria. We are all busy this time of year getting ready for halloween and the build-up to the Christmas season so keep yourself healthy and well this year with a trip to salt of the earth.

Keep an eye out for our new leaflets being distributed in Drogheda and surrounding areas. Discounts are available with these leaflets.

Salt Lamps

 

Salt lamps present a wonderful fusion of individualist style and function. The warm glow that emanates from the salt is for many, a great source of therapy. The salt lamp, unique as a fingerprint and manufactured by hand would be a focal point in any therapy room or in the home.

The air around us carries ions, also known as electrical charges. These ions can be either positive or negative. Computers, TV’s, air conditioners, tobacco, smoke, etc. produce positively ionized air which is detrimental to our health contributing to illnesses such as arthritis and cancer. The gentle heat of salt crystal lamps generates negatively ionised air which is found in the mountains, at waterfalls, at the sea or after thunderstorms.Breathing air with negative ions has a beneficial effect on our health. Negative ions have aided the treatment of many illnesses including rheumatism, allergies, sleeplessness, migraines, high blood pressure, respiratory problems, physical and psychic disorders etc.

Tests on hyperactive children with concentration and sleeping disorders (ADHD symptoms) have shown that using crystal salt lamps drastically reduces their symptoms after only one week. When the lamps were removed, the symptoms returned. The colour of the salt crystal lamp also helps in the treatment of many conditions. The colour of the salt crystal lamp reinforces the rejuvenating effect on our health as colours themselves have a healing influence. Red stands for revitalization, orange for revival, yellow for positive thinking, white for powers of concentration. 

salt of the earth have a range of salt lamps available. Just pop down to our clinic in Bryanstown Centre, Drogheda to purchase one.

school

The school books are bought, the uniforms are on, lunches are made and the school run is nearly over for the first week. Going back to school can be a great time for children. Although the evenings will be busy, consististing of homework and afterschool activities, the new school year means that they are back in a daily routine, learning new things, making new friends, playing and interacting.

It’s also that time of year that see’s the cold weather slowly creeping back in. The school classroom or playground can be a place where children catch and carry a cold or the flu. They can carry these viruses home with them and also pass them on to others. If you want to prevent this happening to your little one this year, salt of the earth provides salt therapy to those with respiratory and skin conditions.

Salt therapy also helps to boost the immune system and aid in fighting germs and viruses. Asthma cases have been known to surge as children go back to school so to stop them missing days off by visiting our salt clinic. If you think they may have already been in contact with a nasty virus and are feeling a bit under the weather, then why not take them down to our salt rooms where our dry diffused salty air will kill any lurking germs and help to relieve their symptoms. The first treatment is only €10. Half price discounts for a second or third child will apply.
