When chronic bronchitis, described above, occurs in conjunction with emphysema (a type of condition where the air sacs in the lungs become damaged and stretched, resulting in a chronic cough and difficulty breathing) you get chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The main symptoms of COPD include shortness of breath and coughing with sputum production. These symptoms are amplified over time by smoking, air pollution or simply dust around the house. As the lungs deteriorate over time, the symptoms typically get worse.
COPD has no cure at this time, but the inhalation of naturally forming salt dust can help improve your quality of life and keep your symptoms under control. Salt particles clean the respiratory system and accelerate the elimination of toxins found in it. Your breathing should improve and you should notice a difference.
COPD manifests differently with each individual affected. Due to the severity of the condition and the multitude of possible complications, we kindly ask you to seek your GP’s advice before making an appointment in our salt rooms.
Benefits for COPD
Saltwater has been used for centuries to treat many diseases. In ancient Greece, for example, saltwater baths were often used for problem skin, rheumatic pain and muscular problems.
Whether you want to eliminate muscle pain, relax or temper diseases, saltwater baths are a blessing for the body. The skin will absorb minerals such as magnesium and potassium to remove toxins and balance the entire body.
