Salt Therapy for Athletes

When you want to win, you need that edge. As an athlete, you know that every advantage counts. The primary goal of every athlete is to achieve their absolute, maximum potential.

One of the most important determinants of whether this is possible is an optimum breathing pattern and lung capacity. Most coaches pay a lot of attention to an athlete’s recovery of muscles, ligaments and joints, but very little or no attention is paid to recovery of the airways. Incorporating Salt Therapy into your training program can improve your performance whilst providing a boost to your overall health and wellbeing.

An often unwanted side effect of hours upon hours of endurance based training is a suppressed immune system. Have you ever trained for 15 weeks in the lead up to an endurance event only to be struck down with a cold 3 weeks before race day? At the peak of your physical performance it can be the most frustrating thing an athlete can encounter.

Salt therapy is a 100% natural method which can be used to enhance your immune system. Salt has natural anti-bacterial properties and Salt Therapy helps clear the airways of unwanted inhaled pathogens whilst improving overall lung function.

Poor lung function may contribute to:

  • Reduced stamina and performance
  • Increased likelihood of injury in training and competition
  • Increased production of lactic acid and subsequently leave the athlete with residual muscle soreness
  • Increased dehydration
  • An increased occurrence of cramps
  • Longer recovery time
  • Limited gaseous  exchange in the lungs
  • Elevated  heart rate
  • Increased anxiety
  • Decreased concentration
  • Depleted energy levels
  • Poor sleep patterns

Salt Therapy successfully addresses all of these factors and has shown to improve lung function in healthy people by:

  • Clearing mucus from the airways and restoring the function of the lung’s clearance mechanism, the Cilia
  • Providing anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial effects on the entire respiratory tract
  • Clearing inhaled pollutants and particles from the airways
  • Reducing sensitivity to common allergy triggers
