Salt has three primary characteristics:
Salt is Super Absorbent
Dry salt acts like a sponge attracting foreign substances along its path through the respiratory tract. It naturally absorbs allergens, toxins, and foreign substances in your lungs and throughout your respiratory system. Salt absorbs moisture in every part of the respiratory tract and this helps to thin mucus. The thinned mucus is easier to expel naturally.
Salt is Anti-Bacterial
The dry salt particles act as an anti-bacterial agent, dissolving bacteria and pollutants lodged in the respiratory tract. These are then either coughed up or naturally expelled by the body.
Inhaled dry salt particles help to reduce inflammation in the entire respiratory tract and widen the air passages. A clean respiratory system naturally results in higher oxygen intake, increased energy, and an improved immune system.
Frequently asked questions.
What is a salt room? A salt room is a room where the walls and floor are covered with Himalayan salt. Typically located in a spa setting, salt rooms are the perfect therapy for individuals with respiratory or skin conditions. Salt is placed in a halo-generator that then precisely grinds the salt into specific micro-sized particles. These micro-sized particles are dispersed into the air as dry salt aerosol. As the salt travels in the salt room, these particles of dry sodium chloride are inhaled into the respiratory system.
How does a salt room work? A device called a halo-generator grinds salt into microscopic particles and releases them into the air. Once inhaled, these microparticles of salt are able to get into the deepest parts of the lungs and bronchial passages, dissolving bacteria and pollutants along the way and thinning mucous enough to allow it to be expelled easily. A clean respiratory system naturally results in higher oxygen intake, increased energy, and improved immune system function.
Can a salt room help with allergies? How? In Charlotte, allergies can be common, especially at certain times of the year. Allergy relief doesn’t always have to come in the form of shots or medication. A salt room is one of nature's natural allergy treatments and can be quite effective.
When you have allergies, your immune system makes antibodies that identify a particular allergen as harmful, even though it isn’t. When you come into contact with the allergen, your immune system’s reaction can inflame your airways. The natural anti-inflammatory properties of salt can help to reduce this inflammation and thin bronchial and nasal secretions. Improved drainage allows for a reduction in contaminants that may trigger or prolong allergic episodes.
