The common cold is a viral infection of the upper respiratory tract, usually lasting 5-10 days. Symptoms occur gradually within the first few days, and can include: runny or stuffy nose, sore throat, coughing, sneezing, headache, low-grade fever and general discomfort.
The flu is a viral infection attacking not only the nose and throat, but lungs as well. It often gets confused with the common cold, yet symptoms are more severe and abrupt. Those suffering from the flu may experience: nasal congestion, sore throat, dry cough, headache, high fever, fatigue, chills, sweats and body aches.
Salt therapy is a natural, drug-free treatment that can help relieve cold and flu symptoms. Salt’s antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antihistamine properties detox the respiratory system of germs and bacteria that cause inflammation. As you sit back and relax during a halotherapy session at Salt Remedy of Lake Mary, the micro-particles of salt you breathe in will absorb excess mucus and open up your airways. Additionally, our salt rooms are filled with negative ions which help to reduce stress and strengthen the immune system, renewing your body’s natural defenses.
