Bronchitis

Many people have suffered from bronchitis at one point or another, and know the discomfort that it can cause. But what exactly is bronchitis and how does Salt Therapy help? 

Bronchitis is the inflammation of the bronchi in the lungs. When bronchitis occurs, the airways become inflamed or produce extra mucus on the lining of the bronchi.  Inflammation is generally caused by a viral infection or a secondary bacterial infection.

However, it can also occur by breathing in irritating substances such as pollutants, dust, and smoke.  There are two types of bronchitis – acute and chronic.  Acute bronchitis most often occurs in winter and it starts with tiredness and a sore throat, with a cough developing.  It usually resolves in 7 to 10 days.  Chronic bronchitis is bronchitis that goes on for a long time.  It is defined as chronic bronchitis when cough and mucus production lasts for at least three months a year over two or more consecutive years.  The coughing and mucus production can last longer each time the bronchitis recurs. 

Prescription drugs can bring temporary relief, but Salt Therapy will help rid you of the infection, clearing your lungs from accumulated mucus and making it easier to breathe. Salt Therapy will also improve the functioning of your lungs. As your airways are cleared, your coughing will subside. Salt Therapy will bring relief by reducing the inflammation of your lungs and killing bacteria. Large amounts of mucus will be expelled, alleviating tightness of the chest and wheezing.
