The common cold is a viral infection of the nose and throat that can be caused by many different viruses. A sore throat and runny nose are typically the first signs of a cold, typically followed with by a cough and headache.
Common colds are the main reason for children and adults to miss school or work. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there are millions of cases of the common cold each year. It is stated that adults have at least 2-3 colds per year, while children are reported to have even more colds per year.
Although there is no vaccine or cure for the common cold, there are many ways to prevent catching a cold such as washing of hands, staying away from others who are sick, disinfecting your space.
When salt particles are inhaled the anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties target bacterial pathogens and break them down, including breaking down any mucus. It is most beneficial for individuals to maintain the strength of their respiratory system in order to avoid common colds that can then turn into infections.
Salt Therapy is recommended once or twice a week during cold and flu seasons. For those that do not have any existing conditions that want to maintain their overall health and respiratory system, salt therapy should be effective at least once or twice a month. The more consistent the sessions are, the more effective the outcome.
Our salt rooms are equipped with comfortable chairs, a t.v. with access to Netflix and premium channels, and sand toys for children.
It is important to note that Salt Therapy is a natural supplemental way to help alleviate symptoms but does not cure any condition or disease.
