Our respiratory functions not only provide oxygen throughout our bodies but also fight against harmful substances or pollutants that come into our bodies. Our respiratory systems fight things like diseases, bacteria, allergens, and other airborne particles, filtering them out to the best of its ability.
Inhaling dry salt particles via halotherapy can work to widen the air passages and reduce inflammation in the respiratory system. In a sense, halotherapy may clean your respiratory system so that it can function more effectively.
Here are some respiratory ailments that halotherapy could specifically benefit:
- COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)
- Allergy conditions
- Adenotonsillar syndrome
Remember that this is not considered a cure but rather a treatment that can provide improved respiratory function and in turn potentially help with some of these respiratory-related issues.
