Salt Therapy for Sinus Infection

Bring the seashore to your bedroom.

While some suffer from chronic sinusitis, leaving individuals with awful symptoms almost constantly, even acute sinus infections can last up to a few weeks. These infections not only lead to your typical cold symptoms, often leaving you unable to breathe, but also come with that extra thick mucus and congestion, and not to mention the excruciating pressure felt behind your eyes and/or cheeks.

Sinus infections are in no way enjoyable, with a wide variety of treatment options to help relieve the symptoms. While antibiotics are a treatment option, they are only beneficial if you are suffering from bacterial sinusitis. The remaining treatment options available are for the sole purpose of relieving symptoms, and not actually facilitating recovery. Very extreme cases can even lead to surgery in order to remove blockages and/or enlarge sinus passages.

Salt therapy works on the basis of exposure to high concentrations of microscopic salt particles that are released into the air you breathe, like seashore aerosol. As the salt micro-particles enter and line your nasal cavity, they draw more water towards the lining, breaking and loosening up congestion and fluidizing secretions.

This ultimately helps the body expel the built up mucus, easily clearing the sinuses channels. It helps also in removing any pathogens from the nasal cavities and easing breathing. The salt has anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties, helping in fighting the invading pathogens in the sinus cavities and throughout the respiratory system. Additionally, salt has natural anti-inflammatory effects, helping further to relieve symptoms.

Not only is salt therapy a great treatment option for sinus infections, but is very effective as a preventative measure for almost any respiratory infection. The way salt therapy works preventatively is that it helps the body to detoxify the respiratory system from toxins and pollutants we breathe in everyday, clearing and reducing our exposure to what can irritate our sinuses and our entire respiratory system. In addition, this therapy keeps your mucus fluid, humidifies the entire respiratory system and keeps the respiratory system well able to expel pathogens or allergens. Sinusitis is quite common, with few treatment options that are actually aimed at recovery. Salt therapy, a natural, safe treatment for sinus infections is the best long-term option. It relieves many symptoms while working to make you better faster. It also helps prevent future infections.
