Natural Cough Remedy

In order to help you choose evidence-based complementary/alternative treatment we would like you to get a better understanding of cough symptoms and the treatments options available. A cough is a forceful release of air from the lungs that can be heard. Coughing protects the respiratory system by clearing it of irritants and secretions.

In the majority of cases, coughs are caused by respiratory infections, including:

  • colds or influenza, the most common causes of coughs
  • bronchitis, an inflammation of the mucous membranes of the bronchial tubes
  • croup, a viral inflammation of the larynx, windpipe, and bronchial passages that produces a bark-like cough in children
  • whooping cough, a bacterial infection accompanied by the high-pitched cough for which it is named
  • pneumonia, a potentially serious bacterial infection that produces discolored or bloody mucus

Environmental pollutants, such as cigarette smoke, dust, or smog, can also cause a cough. In the case of cigarette smokers, the nicotine present in the smoke paralyzes the hairs (cilia) that regularly flush mucus from the respiratory system. The mucus then builds up, forcing the body to remove it by coughing. Post-nasal drip, the irritating trickle of mucus from the nasal passages into the throat caused by allergies or sinusitis, can also result in a cough. Some chronic conditions, such as asthma, chronic bronchitis, emphysema, and cystic fibrosis, are characterized in part by a cough. A condition in which stomach acid backs up into the esophagus (gastroesophageal reflux) can cause coughing, especially when a person is lying down. A cough can also be a side-effect of medications that are administered via an inhaler. It can also be a side-effect of beta-blockers and ACE inhibitors, which are drugs used for treating high blood pressure.

Pharmacologic Treatments

Nowadays powerful development of pharmacology and industrial production of medicines encourages growth of treatment by medication. Simplicity of application, availability and rapid effect give priority to pharmacotherapy. However, along with their therapeutic effect, medicines can cause pathologic conditions that are associated with side effects.

Many allergic conditions and autoimmune processes are caused by medicines. Furthermore, treatment by medication does not restore our own body's defense mechanisms.  This point of view makes physicians turn back to the experience of natural healing factors and carry out investigations in order to find medication-free treatment methods.

Drug-Free Salt Therapy

Clinically proven complementary/alternative treatment which appears to successfully address the needs of a person diagnosed with sinusitis is diffused dry saline inhalation, also known as Salt Therapy performed in an our artificial Salt Cave.

Salt Therapy Background

A few significant years of the history of Salt Therapy:

  • Speleotherapy treatment discovered in 1843
  • Medical device developed in 1989
  • Speleotherapy clinic established in Toronto in 2001
  • The Salt Cave clinic established in London in 2008
  • 7000 clients were treated in 2 years
  • Now "salt of the earth" is established in Drogheda, Co. Louth giving you the same treatments and quality of service

Hypertonic saline aerosol inhalation treatment or Salt Therapy is clinically proven:

  • To clear mucus from the airways thus removing airflow obstruction
  • To enhance mucociliary clearance mechanism in both asthmatic and healthy subjects
  • To balance airway-surface liquid
  • To provide anti-inflammatory and bactericidal effects
  • To reduce bronchial hyperresponsiveness
  • To improve lung function
  • To help clear unwanted inhaled particles from lungs

Salt Therapy helps treat all major processes acting in the bronchi: swelling, inflammation, excessive mucus and bacterial infection. Salt is known for its bactericidal effect. Nowadays, salt is even used in swimming pools instead of chlorine to kill bacteria. Salt Therapy is also very effective in killing bacteria found in the mucus.

In most patients, after a course of Salt Therapy, airways become normal and symptoms disappear.

Efficiency rate of Salt Therapy treatment

The clinical state of 85% of the patients with mild and moderate bronchial asthma, 75% with severe bronchial asthma, 98%- with chronic bronchitis, bronchiectasis and cystic fibrosis improved after Salt Therapy. The patients were examined 6 and 12 months after the first Salt Therapy course.
