Help Combat Flu Season with Salt Therapy

The peak of flu season is upon us, and it’s the last thing that anyone wants to catch! No one wants to feel weak and miserable for a whole week during the busiest time of the year. It definitely isn’t an ideal way to ring in the new year. There is nothing fun about body aches, coughing, sneezing, and an overall feeling of defeat. Of course, if it does happen, the doctor does have medicine that can help to treat your symptoms. But, preventative treatment is best!

In order to prevent getting the flu, keep your immune system in tip-top shape! A great way to ensure that your body is running strong is by incorporating salt therapy into your weekly routine. When you think about it, there is truly no greater gift that you can give yourself than the gift of good health!

This type of ancient therapy has helped a countless amount of people live healthier. According to the Salt Therapy Association, it is all natural and keeps both you and your loved ones healthy by helping to prevent colds and the flu, as well as boost the immune system. The pure grade sodium chloride (salt) used in a  salt therapy session is anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal. Each particle acts like a toothbrush when inhaled, attracting all of the foreign matter as they flow down the respiratory tract. As the tract is cleaned, the immune system becomes healthier, the body takes in more oxygen, and the individual has increased energy levels.

There are many different ways to experience salt therapy. Different facilities may have one or all of the most common choices available. Depending on how much time you have and what you are trying to accomplish, the technician will advise you on what method would work best for your particular needs. There are salt therapy rooms and SALT Booths® available as options.

A halogenerator will crush, grind and disperse the pure grade sodium chloride into the room or booth. While the individual lays or sits, the salt is inhaled. This is a great relaxing experience, that offers multiple health benefits. Incorporate it into your weekly routine for best results and healthier living!
