Lungs and Respiratory System
Healthy lungs and a clean respiratory system are essential for vitality, energy, and longevity.
An average adult takes about 12-15 breaths per minute and little children about 20-30 breaths per minute. The main function of the lungs is to deliver oxygen to our red blood cells and get rid of the CO2 from the body. In addition, our respiratory tract acts as a very important defense mechanism by filtering the air from pollutants and foreign substances, it regulates the pH level of blood by managing the levels of CO2, and it also helps control blood pressure by converting the chemical in the blood called angiotensin I into angiotensin II.
Why dry salt therapy for respiratory care?
People are exposed to pollutants, airborne diseases, bacteria, allergens and other irritating factors on a daily basis. Salt Therapy is the only known method to cleanse and detox the lungs as well as invigorate the entire body with increased lung capacity and oxygen intake. Regular Salt Therapy practice is an excellent way to aid breathing and improves your quality of life.
How does dry salt improve the respiratory system?
Scientific research has found that inhaled dry salt particles have anti-bacterial, mucokinetic, hydrophilic and anti-inflammatory properties, which may help to reduce inflammation in the entire respiratory tract and widen the airway passages. Dry salt particles are also known to accelerate the transportation of mucus and foreign allergens. A clean respiratory system naturally results in higher oxygen intake, increased energy, and an improved immune system.
Dry salt is super absorbent and acts like a sponge attracting foreign substances along its path through the respiratory tract. The dry salt can be imagined to behave like a toothbrush that cleans through the respiratory system removing the build-up of foreign elements that cause various respiratory ailments and conditions. Clean lungs are healthy lungs.
