ABOUT COPD

COPD is the third leading cause of death in the United States. More than 11 million people have been diagnosed with COPD, but an estimated 24 million may have the disease without even knowing it.  At this time there is no cure, and the number of people dying from COPD is growing. This is because many people who develop the symptoms dismiss it as a smoker’s cough and don’t seek help. COPD is a general term which includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema, both of which can cause narrowing of the airways and commonly occur together.

HOW THE SALT CAVE CAN HELP

During the dry salt therapy process patients notice a decrease in cough frequency and intensity due the salt working opening up the respiratory tract. Mucus can become easier to cough up, becoming less sticky and changes in its nature. Salt is mucolytic, meaning it helps to shift retained mucus in the airways. Dry salt therapy can work to bring immediate relief to symptoms of COPD and also can delay the frequency of reoccurrence.  The salt cave by nature, will also work to promote relaxation and boost your immune system allowing it to perform at its highest level! Through continued therapy, your lung capacity can increase and your endurance to participate in everyday activities can as well. 


 HOW OFTEN SHOULD YOU COME


  • Depending on age and stage of your condition, 20-30 sessions are recommended for long term results.
  • The sessions should be frequent; about three or three a week is suggested to notice reduced coughing.
  • For irreversible conditions, two to three-month follow-up sessions are recommended to maintain the clear lungs.
