Spring cleaning brings out the allergy demons.  How to exorcism them with Halotherapy. 

Have you started your garage clean out?  How about those closets?  Never mind those awful ceiling fans (don’t forget to switch their direction).  Many of us who don’t suffer from seasonal allergies get caught off guard while we are doing spring cleaning.  Those of us who understand the misery of seasonal allergies, we wear a mask, right? 

How about that awful response your body has to those dust bunnies, pollen pockets, and animal dander? Your body’s defense is to unleash a hot mess of snot, mucous, teary eyes and coughing for days.  This is commonly known as a histamine response.  In order to clear those pollutants out of your system it creates an avenue to expel them.  Runny nose, watery eyes, sneezing, coughing, sound familiar?  Yep, then you reach for you ANTI-HISTAMINES.   

What if you could head this off BEFORE it starts or at the very least calm it down with minimal use of anti-histamines?  This is how Halotherapy, also known as salt therapy can help.

Because salt, by nature, is anti-inflammatory, it can help slow the histamine reaction down, even eliminate it in some cases.  Inside of a salt room, we use a pharmaceutical grade salt, pulverized to micro-sized particles.  These fine particles are so small that you inhale them deep into your respiratory system. Because these particles are also dry, they will absorb toxins, pollutants and even excess mucus, allowing your body’s excretory system to eliminate the waste.  In some extreme cases (smokers, Cystic Fibrosis) you may expel them through coughing, generally a few hours after a salt room session.  With all this terrible stuff moved out by way of the dry salt, your body has no need to respond with watery eyes, sneezing or coughing to get rid of the gunk!  Brilliant!  

Now that you have a general idea of how salt therapy works, you can appreciate the demon dust bunnies working overtime to keep you barely breathing and miserable.  Little do they know, your reaching for the cross and bringing salt to the rescue!  

“For everyone will be salted with fire.  Salt is good, but if the salt has lost its saltiness, how will you make it salty again? Have salt in yourselves and be at peace with one another.”  Mark 9:49-50
