Salt therapy, or halotherapy, is one of the most effective and affordable methods of treating respiratory diseases. Natural dry salt therapy has a positive physiological and therapeutic effect on the respiratory system and the body as a whole.
Indications for salt therapy:
- chronic respiratory diseases (bronchitis, tracheitis, pneumonia, asthma, laryngitis)
- decreased immunity
- frequent colds
- nicotine addiction, chronic bronchitis of the smoker
- skin diseases (eczema, dermatitis, urticaria, psoriasis, seborrhoea, pustular skin lesions)
- skin aging
- sleep disorders (insomnia)
- chronic fatigue.
How does it work? Due to the porous surface of the salt blocks that cover the walls of the room, negative salt ions are easily released into the air; the number of allergens and bacteria is significantly reduced in such a microclimate. Blocks of salt contain 97% sodium chloride, 3% of other minerals (84 types) and trace elements (iodine, calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, iron, copper, manganese, zinc, selenium, lithium), that are needed for the physiological processes of the body. Salt plays an important role in regulating the ionic balance of the body and has an antiseptic effect. In combination with Panchakarma procedures, it contributes to the process of discharge of the excessive mucus and expectoration containing pathogenic flora, which provokes the development of cold-related diseases. In addition, it rejuvenates the skin and improves microcirculation that helps to heal wounds.
The technology used for this type of physiotherapy at the CALENDULA Clinic was developed by Dr. Wolf. Salt blocks have their origin from the Praid mine (Romania). Soft LED backlighting (colour can be chosen) has the effect of colour therapy; it soothingly affects the nervous system and visual organs.
Result: natural cleansing of the respiratory tract, accelerating recovery from diseases of the respiratory passages and thyroid gland, elimination of the symptoms of chronic fatigue, immune system reinforcement.
