How SaltWorld can help?

For those suffering from asthma, Salt Therapy can not only bring much-needed relief, and also prevent the frequent recurrence of the symptoms. If it is left untreated, the inflammation become chronic and can lead to the lungs becoming irreversibly obstructed. Prescription drugs and inhalers may bring immediate relief, but Salt Therapy has a far more lasting effect. Prescription of drugs such as inhalers can only bring the short-term fix, leaving the underlying problem unchanged once an attack has passed. Salt therapy is unique because:

Salt kills bacteria
Salt Therapy reduces the inflammation and widens the airways
Salt is mucolytic, which means it helps to shift retained mucus and therefore it reduces the chance of infection
Salt Therapy reduces IgE levels, which means the immune system won’t over-react to asthma or allergy triggers
