Bronchitis occurs when the airways leading to the lungs become inflamed or infected, producing excess mucus and causing chest discomfort, coughing and difficulty breathing. Acute bronchitis is generally caused by a common cold or flu virus and often improves within two weeks. Chronic bronchitis is a long-term condition that never completely goes away and can lead to emphysema and COPD. This is often due to cigarette smoking or overexposure to dust, fumes, vapors and air pollution.
Salt therapy is a natural, drug-free treatment designed to alleviate symptoms of acute and chronic bronchitis. The anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties found in salt help to reduce swelling and mucus production in the airways. Instead of waiting for bronchitis to run its course, consider Salt Remedy of Lake Mary’s halotherapy treatments. As you relax in one of our salt therapy rooms, the micro-particles of salt you breathe in absorb moisture, clearing away mucus and killing bacteria to relieve bronchitis symptoms.
