Salt Therapy for Allergies

Allergies are so uncomfortable… constant runny nose, sneezing, itchy teary eyes, and that sporadic cough that catches you off-guard.  

Allergies have reached new heights – like never before – seasonal allergies are beginning to affect people that have never before been disturbed by allergies. People who already have bad allergies are looking at their health being considerably compromised. The Steamboat Pilot has reported that this year is going to be the worst year for pollen/allergies in Colorado history – reporting that over 20,000 people in Colorado alone will suffer from severe seasonal allergies this spring.

Sitting in the salt room (for some people) is not a luxury – it’s a necessity. A non-pharmaceutical approach to treating allergens.  Salt therapy (aka halotherapy) is a natural treatment which reduces the symptoms, severity, and frequency of allergies. When the body breaths in the exact right size of salt particle, the salt is able to absorb these allergens like a sponge and your body them removes them from your respiratory tract.

Here WHY halotherapy helps with allergies:

  1. Flushes out allergens and pollutants

The main way that people are being exposed to allergens (like pollen) is by breathing it in… those allergens can then get “stuck” in your respiratory track and the body has an allergic reaction while trying to expel it. This dry salt serves as a sponge-like mechanism to absorb said allergens.

  1. Reduce inflammation in the airways

Salt is naturally anti-inflammatory. That’s why many people use turn to Epsom salts to soak sore muscles. Unlike a wet bath soak, our salt rooms are a dry salt. This allows the dry salt particles to travel deep into your sinuses and respiratory system. These particles, when inhaled, help reduce the inflammation on a cellular level.

  1. Antibacterial

Salt is also naturally antibacterial… There are many bacteria’s in the air that may trigger or complicate an allergy. The microscopic dry salt particles reduce bacterial growth. In addition, salt particles also kill off and absorb bacteria, clearing them out from the airways.

  1. Increase oxygen intake

The salt particles work like a cleaning agent to break up the mucus in your respiratory tract – from your upper sinuses deep into your lungs. By removing this mucous, your body will be able to allow more oxygen to flow to the remainder of your body.

** Other tricks that we have found help to treat allergens include eyebright vitamins + local honey.
