Asthma and the benefits of salt therapy

The exact cause of asthma is not known. According to the 2002 AIRI report, 470,000 people have asthma in Ireland, meaning approximately one in eight suffer from it. Ireland has the fourth highest prevalence of asthma in the world after Australia, New Zealand, and the UK.

There is a strong genetic link, meaning that it can run in families. If a parent has asthma, the risk of their child getting it doubles. Many people with asthma also suffer from other allergic conditions such as hayfever, eczema, and hives.

Symptoms of asthma include difficulty in breathing or shortness of breath; a tight feeling in the chest; wheezing (a whistling noise in the chest ); coughing, particularly at night; and hoarseness.

Experience the benefits of salt therapy

Salin Plus Breath Easy Device is a plug-in device which works by air being forced through a filter which contains micro-crystallised deposit of salts, primarily sodium chloride. This creates a fine, constant spray of sodium chloride. The sodium ions that are released from Salin Plus activate the cilia in the lungs, allowing them to excrete mucus more efficiently. By stimulating cilia motion in asthmatics who usually have very low cilia motion, Salin Plus results in faster elimination of the secretions in the lungs and sinuses.

Many using Salin Plus find breathing easier after only a few days’ use. However, you should never reduce medication until getting assessed by your doctor. Salin Plus can relieve asthma, bronchitis, cystic fibrosis, hay fever, sinusitis, and snoring. It is a natural therapy that does not cause side effects associated with conventional medicines.

Studies undertaken to determine the benefit of salt therapy in the treatment of asthma have concluded that while it does not improve lung function, it does improve the quality of life of those who use it by reducing cough, reducing sputum (phlegm ) volume and nasal congestion. Studies show it reduces the number of hospitalisations.
