Outside allergens: pollens, grasses etc
Indoor allergens: pet dander, dust mites, mould spores etc
Inhalation of salt aerosol is clinically proven to cleanse the respiratory system of the human body and to speed up the elimination of toxins. The size of the particles is the same as in natural Salt Caves — 1-5 μm. These so-called breathable particles penetrate into the bronchial tree in the form of finest crystals. diffused dry saline works as a “bronchial brush” for the airways.
A salt aerosol proved to have bactericidal effects, cleansing microbial flora of the respiratory tract, slowing down bacterial growth and increasing resistance to respiratory tract diseases. Salt aerosol is a well known decongestant; it reduces inflammation widening of the airway passages, restoring the normal transport of mucous secretion and free blockages in the bronchi and bronchioles leading to rapid elimination of the residual tar and foreign allergens. It also has a hyposensitizing effect: the body becomes less sensitive to a substance producing an allergic reaction and immunomodulating effect: it’s reducing IgE levels in the body. IgE is the antibody involved in allergic reactions.
Dry sodium chloride aerosol eliminates airborne pollen particles from the airways. The air composition strengthens immunity and better immunity decreases allergic reaction to pollens and other allergens. The treatment’s efficacy is estimated at 75 – 98%.
Patients usually stop using antihistamine, steroids and other drugs after 10-15 sessions; not because we ask them to but because they no longer need them.
Salt Therapy is 100% natural, safe and drug-free, providing effective long-term relief for people suffering from hayfever. It can be used as a complementary treatment to prescribed medications or as a sole treatment. When Salt Therapy is used as a complimentary treatment, it can increase the effectiveness of prescribed medications, and decrease the amount prescribed medication. In order to help you choose evidence-based complementary/alternative treatment we would like you to get a better understanding of asthmatic disease and the treatment options available.

- To reduce bronchial hyperresponsiveness
- To improve lung function
- To help clear unwanted inhaled particles from lungs
- As a drug-free treatment for asthma, bronchitis, CF and sinusitis
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.
