How The Salt Room® can help your Ear Infection
Approximately 75% of children succumb to an ear infection at least once before they reach their third birthday. Americans spend an estimated $5 million to treat ear infections each year. While children have a greater likelihood to suffer from this affliction, adults can also develop ear infections.
Salt therapy is a non-invasive treatment that brings relief and prevents recurrence for significant lengths of time.
If you or your child is suffering from an ear infection salt therapy treatments will bring relief by reducing inner ear edema which causes the infection. The action of salt particles, results in widening of the airway passages, better drainage and better aeration behind the tympanic membrane leading to a decrease in infection. Salt is also anti-bacterial helping killing the infection as it reduces the swelling.
