Cough treatment at The Salt Cave
I have really suffered from bad cough and found it cleared so well after Salt Therapy and the effects lasted a long time!
To get a better understanding of how the salt can help with cough and other respiratory problems, first of all we need to know what kind of properties salt has.
Salt therapy helps treat all major processes acting in the bronchi: swelling, inflammation, excessive mucus and bacterial infection. As a result of Salt therapy, inflammation within the bronchi reduces, so the quality and function of breathing improves.
This leads to the balancing of other bodily systems, due to increased oxygen availability. Thanks to the desensitisation of the immune response, sleep patterns will improve and acute attacks and the need for medication will substantially decrease. This means that you will have more energy, become stronger and more resilient to every day infections.
Coughs are incredibly common. It’s one of the most common reasons for people to go and see their GP. A cough is a reflex action to clear your airways of mucus and irritants, foreign particles and microbes. Coughs may be dry or chesty. Most coughs clear up within two weeks.
A cough is usually caused by a virus or bacterial infection. Most people with a cough have an upper respiratory tract infection caused by a virus or in more severe cases a chest infection or pneumonia. Possible non-infectious causes include:
- allergic rhinitis (hay fever)
- a flare-up of a long-term condition such as asthma or COPD
- acid reflux
I found the salt cave in desperation. I have been going there along with my prescribed medication but undoubtedly the cave has helped tremendously. I am coughing far less and although I still get a salty cave it just shows it is getting in deep. I’ve booked 15 sessions. Definitely after 5 I felt the big turn around, it was here that I managed to drop off into a deep heavy sleep twice after so many sleepless nights.
After 10 hospital admissions in one year, two severe/life-threatening we felt that the medical professionals could do nothing to help. After the fifth session, we noticed an improvement in her general breathing and after the 10th session, it was like we had our daughter back. We couldn’t believe it! She has now had 5-6 bad coughs/colds and has not even had a slight wheeze. There has been no need to use any of the inhalers prescribed by the doctors.
We are so thankful to the Salt Cave and their lovely, friendly staff for giving our daughter a normal life again!
