Dry salt is very hygroscopic. It attracts humidity as much and as quickly as possible. When salt particles are inhaled and deposited in the bronchial tree and on mucus, the mucus is liquified. This facilitates the easy expectoration of mucus. Patients experience looser sputum which is much easier to remove by coughing. An advantage of this is that any blocking of the airways caused by mucus is removed.
Dry salts aerosol may lessen the destructive inflammatory processes in the airways. Clinical studies have found that the inhalation of dry salt aerosol results in decreased colonisation of pathogenic bacteria flora. Dry salt aerosol acts as a mucokinetic. Salt stimulates the bronchial self-cleaning mechanism and can therefore act as an expectorant. This slight stimulation removes more dirt and mucus faster.
Dry salt aerosols stimulate the removal of mucus and dirt from the airways. Inhalation of dry salt aerosol may improve both the humoral and cellular immunity of the epithel and therefore stimulates the local immune defense.
With over 99% sodium chloride, the natural rock salt used for the Salt therapy application has the highest level of purity found in nature. Existing clinical studies and therapeutic trials both show that inhaling dry salt aerosol under controlled conditions in a standardized environment can be beneficial to patients suffering from certain respiratory tract disorders.
