Cold/Flu

How The Salt Room® can help your Cold/Flu

Last year, millions came down with cold / flu symptoms and more than 200,000 people were hospitalized with flu-related complications. While drugs may ease the symptoms of the common cold or provide short-term relief for the flu virus, it may be only a couple weeks until you’re infected again. Salt therapy will not only bring relief but also prevent frequent re-occurrence of cold and flu.

Salt therapy will bring relief for cold and flu sufferers by opening the nasal airways, killing bacteria and facilitating the drainage of the sinuses.

If you are suffering from chest congestion, you will start breathing easier as the salt therapy accelerates mucous clearance from your lungs. These sessions help drive away sneezing and coughing and decrease your dependence on prescription drugs. Salt therapy also reduces stress, which might otherwise weaken your immune system, and helps rejuvenate your natural defenses.

Clinical studies published in the New England Journal of Medicine (2006) observed:

“Inhalation of hypertonic saline produces a sustained acceleration of mucus clearance and improved lung function. This treatment may protect the lung from insults that reduces mucus clearance and reduces lung disease”.

The Journal of Aerosol Medicine (1995) reports tremendous improvements in patients suffering from various types of respiratory diseases (bronchial asthma, chronic obstructive and non-obstructive bronchitis, bronchiectasis, cystic fibrosis) who underwent treatment with salt therapy in a placebo-controlled clinical trial. The best remedy for cold and flu treatment and prevention is a blend of science and nature.
