Halotherapy (a.k.a. Dry Salt Therapy) and respiratory health go hand-in-hand, like peanut butter and jelly!
I get asked all the time, "What is Halotherapy?". Halotherapy, also known as Dry Salt Therapy, is a drug-free, natural, and safe holistic approach to health that mimics the microclimate of a salt cave. Pharmaceutical grade salt is grinded into microscopic particles, and is dispersed into the air by a Halogenerator. You breathe in the air, and your respiratory treatment is under way.
This type of treatment is a safe and effective way of using salt’s natural antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and super absorbent properties to provide relief for respiratory and skin conditions, just to name a few.
Halotherapy has been used for over a century in Europe for maintaining respiratory hygiene and treating respiratory illnesses, and is covered by insurance for respiratory, allergy, and skin issues in Europe. It's been in the US for a little over 10 years now, and the hope is that one day it'll be covered under insurance here for the same treatments. That would be amazing! We're just a century or two behind.
With respiratory health literally on everyone's mind since 2020 with COVID-19, it’s reassuring that there are scientifically proven natural treatments like Halotherapy that strengthen your respiratory immune system, improve respiratory hygiene, and can work as a preventative measure for future respiratory illnesses.
Preventative respiratory hygiene can be KEY for building your immune system with the anti-bacterial properties of the dry salt.
This treatment has long been used by people where their respiratory system has been compromised, as salt’s natural absorbent, anti-microbial and anti-bacterial properties can help clear out your respiratory system of anything you might have breathed in.
For example, small particles in your lungs will be surrounded by salt and can become large enough to easily expectorate. Dry Salt can also be anti-bacterial inside your lungs, your sinus cavities, and entire respiratory system making it difficult for bacteria, allergens, and viruses to thrive and survive.
I've suffered from chronic sinusitis and allergies since the day I was born. I spent my childhood getting allergy shots each week, taking sinus medication often, and being forced to do sinus cavity rinses that would send me into a tail spend. I was not a fan.
Since the day I began Halotherapy, I have not had to take ONE sinus or allergy medication. NOTHING! Not even a Tylenol! It has single-handedly saved my respiratory health, and continues to work wonders with every treatment.
