Salt room therapy can be used in the treatment of the following ailments, among others:
- acute respiratory disorders
- chronic respiratory disorders
- chronic pharyngitis
- chronic tonsillitis
- chronic maxillary sinusitis (sinus infection)
- chronic rhinitis (inflammation of the nasal passages)
- bronchitis that has lasted more than two weeks
- chronic bronchitis
- recurrent bronchitis or pneumonia
- chronic and acute otitis (inflammation of the ear)
- recurrent viral infections
- hay fever and allergic reactions
- atopic dermatitis, or eczema (inflammation of the skin)
- rashes and purulent infections of the skin
Alternative treatment methods play an important role in caring for respiratory disorders. These methods are physiological and have many potential uses. They reduce the need for medication, act in a pre-emptive manner and expedite the process of rehabilitation.
In seeking to gain positive therapy results, the critical treatment variable is the air used in the therapy sessions, which is saturated with dry NaCl dust with a concentration of 20-100 mg/m3. The size of therapeutically significant salt particles is less than 5 microns (µm).
Modern treatment equipment enables the correct regulation of the salt concentration of the room's respiratory air based on the volume of the airspace.
