How Visits To A Salt Cave Helps Symptoms Of Colds, Flu, Ear and Sinus Infections, Sleep Issues and Re-balancing The Body
Long term studies with allergy patients in Russia who reported remarkable improvement over a period of ten years have led to halo therapy being recognized as a certified allergy treatment by the Russian Ministry of Health and other associations in Europe.
According to a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine on the effects of salt therapy on cystic fibrosis patients, “The results of our trial were revolutionary. We saw a sustained improvement in lung function, a major reduction in the number of lung flare-ups, a reduced need for antibiotics to treat flare-ups, and fewer days off school or work due to illness.”
Cold and Flu:
Salt therapy has an immediate remedial affect on the symptoms of colds and flu. Breathing becomes easier as the sole (so-lay) naturally absorbs edema from swollen air passages and thins mucus secretions so that drainage is easier. Relief from the irritation of sticky mucus secretions and debris, as well as the antispasmodic effect produced by calming negative ions, calms and quiets coughs. Equally important is the treatment environment, free from exposure to any external challenges, which gives the immune system the chance to reassert itself in this supportive atmosphere and initiate a healing process. Additionally, the deep cleaning of the sinus cavities and respiratory tract inherent in this type of treatment reduces the toxic load on the immune system, regardless of external exposure. A series of treatments not only helps to relieve and heal a current cold or flu episode, but increases resistance to new infections for months in the future by building up one’s immune system.
Ear and Sinus Infections:
Salt therapy’s ability to reduce edema in passages and cavities not immediately accessible to other means of treatment make it the perfect solution for dealing with ear and sinus infections. The Salt Cave is perfectly safe and comfortable for children as well as adults, and can bring not only relief in the short term, but lasting resistance to recurrence of such infections. In the case of ear infections, the sole (pronounced so-lay) is able to penetrate deep into the internal passages of the ear, reducing inflammation, edema, and bacteria in the eustachian tubes. Relief of edema from swollen tissues widens passages, improving drainage and increasing aeration behind the tympanic membrane, reducing infection in the pockets where bacteria often builds due to collected fluid. Relief from sinus infections is also achieved The negative charge of the air in our cave is literally drawn in to the essentially positively charged environment of inflamed and infected sinus cavities. Relief is achieved quickly as mucus secretions become thinner and are able to drain properly, removing trapped pockets of debris and bacteria. The pure air from the cave also stimulates the immune system, increasing the body’s innate ability to resist further infection as antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties reduce the current episode. This can significantly reduce the use of antibiotics in chronic sufferers of ear and sinus infections.
The multiple effects of salt therapy on the body enable it to address sleeping issues with a variety of causes. Most basically, snoring and sleep apnea caused by obstructed air passages is relieved. Air passages are opened and widened and spasms of inflamed irritated tissue and smooth muscles are modulated, so restful breathing can be achieved. Many subjects have found relief from sleep apnea previously treated by drugs or sleep machines in a single session, with results improving daily as the series progressed. On a deeper level, the Salt Cave also provides a treatment environment where healing can be begin for an overwhelmed and unbalanced nervous system. Exposure to the excessively positively charged atmosphere of the everyday world can cause an imbalance in our own electromagnetic fields, literally creating an inability to relax from the cellular level up.
The water method of dispersal of salt particles into the salt cave’s environment increases their surface energy, enhancing the salt’s natural negative charge, and increasing its ability to re – balance the body’s PH (acid and alkaline) during the treatment period. The Salt Cave isolates the individual in an environment free from all interference, allowing one to achieve deep relaxation. In this situation, the nervous system is able to reset itself and reassert its natural proper balance. More restful sleep is often achieved after the first session, and with repeated sessions the body can relearn the process of achieving this state independently.
Well Balanced Body:
A healthy and well balanced body has a natural ability to deal with reasonable stress and to regenerate physically and mentally during sleep. Internal and environmental challenges can disrupt the body’s ability to bring itself back into balance, creating a situation where stress and fatigue are constant and cumulative. The Salt Cave isolates the individual in a stress-free environment that provides healing on a variety of levels while allowing the body to reassert its natural healthy balance. The negative charge and high surface energy of sole (pronounced so-lay) empowers the salt particles to penetrate internal airways more deeply, bonding with positive ions and calming and relaxing internal muscles as the nervous system re-balances. The same action is simultaneously performed externally as charged particles coat the skin, reducing chronic hypersensitivity caused by environmental stresses and encouraging cellular regeneration. Antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties reduce the body’s toxic load, giving relief to an overburdened immune system. Multiple sessions of treatment in this supportive environment reinforce the organism’s natural inclination toward a healthy balanced state, and enhance its ability to achieve it independently.
