Immune Benefits of Halotherapy
There is a strong link between your immune health and your mental health. When you’re under stress, hormones are released that suppress your immune system. Studies show that people who are stressed are more susceptible to developing cold and flu viruses. When the body is stressed it is more likely to produce cytokines, and other molecules that trigger inflammation. If the body is working on underlying inflammation it is less able to fortify and protect against viruses, infections and other illnesses.
Did you know that the average elementary student has 8 to 12 colds a year? The CDC estimates 22 million school days a year are missed annually in the United States (WebMd February 2020) due to illness. Childhood colds cause missed days of school and work, taking days to recover and catch up with missed assignments.
To help prevent illness, it’s important to maintain a healthy immune system. One great way to give your body the boost it needs is to add Halotherapy to your wellness regimen.
Every day people are exposed to pollutants, airborne diseases, bacteria, allergens, and other irritating factors. More than 95 % of the world's population breathing unhealthy air (CNN April 17, 2018) Halotherapy is a method to help cleanse and detox the lungs as well as invigorate the entire body with increased lung capacity and oxygen intake. Regular Halotherapy practice is an excellent way to aid breathing and improves your quality of life.
Halotherapy can help to clear up your respiratory tract and expel any unwanted bacteria. The microparticles of dry salt in the air can act as a sponge and attack foreign substances. This keeps these bad particles out of your body and helps to clear up your lungs. By cleansing and detoxifying your lungs, Halotherapy enables your respiratory system to work more efficiently. This results in higher oxygen intake and more energy. As a result, your overall health will improve.
Consistent sessions will help to maintain this boosted state and prevent illness. Seasonal strands of the flu can persist year-round, but the influenza virus is most common between December and February. As the peak of cold and flu season rapidly approaches, it is extremely important to keep your immune system at its highest level of functioning to avoid getting sick.
In addition to clearing your respiratory system, salt therapy can also help lower your stress levels. Chronic stress can wear you down and weaken your immune system, so managing your stress is key to staying healthy.
In addition, it is also important to get adequate sleep, maintain a healthy diet, exercise regularly, and wash your hands frequently to avoid infections.
