Salt Therapy vs. Medications for Treating (Allergies, Asthma, etc.)

Salt therapy is a rapidly growing holistic treatment for treating respiratory symptoms and even problem skin.

There are a variety of ways to manage our allergies, asthma, and other respiratory or skin issues, but in recent years, the inhalation of salt was discovered to have many positives effects on the body. The real question is “What makes salt therapy better than traditional treatment methods?”

Salt Therapy is an All-in-One Package

The asthmatic may need to carry around a rescue inhaler all day in case of an attack, while someone suffering from eczema or any other skin condition needs to apply creams and sometimes take oral medication. While all these treatments are effective, they may be unnecessary. A number of benefits in favor of salt therapy have become apparent over years of study:

  • Multiple Uses in One Treatment- Salt therapy has been known to have equal if not better results on several health issues at once. Instead of dealing with each problem individually, salt therapy allows you to tackle them all in a single treatment.
  • Good for Both the Skin and Lungs- Breathing in the salt improves the health of your lungs, which has freed many asthmatics from their inhaler. The salt has an equally powerful effect on the skin’s surface, relieving many from their uncomfortable skin conditions.
  • Swift Results- Many treatments require a certain amount of time to alleviate any symptoms fully. This is the same for salt therapy, but it produces results from the very first treatment.

The majority of those who spend even 40 minutes in a salt room experience a change in their breathing or skin condition after the very first session.

  • Helps to Detoxify Your Body- In our modernized world, there are many substances which harm our bodies. Their effects may not be noticeable immediately, but our overall health is severely affected by these toxins. Salt therapy has been highly successful in removing these harmful toxins from our bodies. This makes salt therapy beneficial for everyone.

Why is Salt Therapy So Popular?

For some time, salt therapy was rejected due to overuse in the average person’s diet, causing people to believe salt is bad for you. Salt had a bad rap! It wasn’t until recently people started to recognize and believe in the healing abilities of salt.

The development of salt rooms allows people to undergo salt therapy comfortably and conveniently.

Another convenience is the invention of unique devices which can provide a similar result in your room as you sleep. This means you don’t even need to spend any of your time undergoing the therapy as you can simply use a device at your leisure in any room of your house or even your office.

The lasting effects of salt therapy are another factor contributing to its popularity. While many on-going treatments will alleviate symptoms and help you stay healthy, salt therapy can improve your overall condition for years. Not only does salt therapy alleviate symptoms, it improves your overall condition to the point where medication may no longer be necessary.

Salt therapy has a relaxing effect on the body as a whole. The inhalation of the salt opens your lungs and allows you to get the necessary oxygen into your body easier, and it also improves circulation. This effect is so strong it has been known to lessen the effects of depression, insomnia, and many other such issues.

What Makes Salt Therapy Better Than the Regular Medical Treatments?

Salt therapy is far more versatile than any other treatment for a number of ailments. Many respiratory and skin issues can be relieved by salt therapy, without ingesting any of the chemicals you’d find in traditional medicines.

Salt therapy is also more cost-effective than traditional medications. Instead of spending money on monthly prescriptions you can visit a salt room and reap all the health benefits while relaxing.

You can also purchase a unit designed to recreate the effects of a salt room within your home. You’ll also need to purchase a replacement filter twice a year, or more often depending on use.

Salt therapy is 100% natural. It does not require the use of any artificial components. There are no added chemical substances. This means salt therapy can improve your health without introducing any harmful substances into your body.

Salt therapy is beneficial for your overall health but is especially helpful to those who have asthma, allergies, COPD and other respiratory issues.
