Recommendations

How many treatments will I need?

Every experience is different, and it depends on the type and severity of your condition. Based on the research, recommendations are for a course of 12-15 treatments, preferably within 4-8 weeks. You may feel some improvement after a single session, but a series of treatments is required to achieve long-term results. For mid conditions, 6-8 treatments may be enough. Some people use treatments as a preventative measure to avoid the common cold, and other respiratory viruses.

When should salt treatment be avoided?

Treatment should be avoided during the acute phase of any illness, including the following: infections accompanied by fever, acute active tuberculosis, cardiac insufficiency, COPD in the third stage, bleeding, spitting of blood, alcohol or drug intoxication, unstable or uncontrolled hypertension, and acute stages of respiratory diseases.

Is there research to support Halotherapy?

Yes, Halotherapy has been well researched in Russia and Eastern Europe. Most of the research has been conducted by Dr. A. V. Chervinskaya, the head of Clinical Research Respiratory Center in St. Petersburg Russia. She works in the field of pulmonology and rehabilitation medicine and has published more than two hundred articles on this topic. Recently, the New England Journal of Medicine published an article on the efficacy of salt therapy in cystic fibrosis. They found that long term salt treatment had a positive impact on lung function and reduced pulmonary exacerbations. In addition, they found no negative side effects associated with the therapy.

Are there any side effects?

No. Halotherapy is 100% natural, safe, and drug free, providing effective long-term relief. It can be used as a complementary treatment to prescribed medications or as a sole treatment. When Halotherapy is used as a complementary treatment, it can increase the effectiveness of over the counter and prescribed medications and decrease the amount prescribed. Halotherapy works exceedingly well for children.

Why Himalayan salt?

Did you  know Himalayan crystal salt contains 84 minerals and trace elements?

The 84 compounds are bioidentical to our bodies and are essential for optimum health.  Salt has the same fundamental importance for our life as water.  We could not survive without either of them. But there is a huge difference between salt in its original form, as it has crystallized in the Earth over millions of years, and "regular" table salt. Wholesome, natural salt has been used as a holistic remedy for centuries. Table salt, on the other hand, is nothing more than sodium chloride with additives: a substance that -through industrial processing- become one of our worst enemies.
