Are you seeking relief from COPD?
You’re not alone. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is an inflammatory lung condition that can obstruct airflow from the lungs, affecting an estimated 15.3 million Americans.
Because it’s a chronic condition, people live with COPD every day and may suffer long-term disability or even death. In fact, the American Lung Association (ALA) reports that COPD is the third leading cause of death by disease nationwide.
November is National COPD Awareness Month, and a great time to remember that, despite its dangers, COPD can be treatable. Current treatment options that can bring relief include COPD medications, pulmonary rehabilitation, supplemental oxygen and complementary therapies like yoga, acupuncture and salt therapy.
Salt Therapy as a COPD Treatment
Halotherapy, or salt therapy, involves breathing microparticles of salt crystals into the lungs in a relaxed setting like a spa. Many COPD sufferers have reported that halotherapy helps clear lung obstructions and cleanses the respiratory system. The salt is antimicrobial and antibacterial, and may absorb and remove toxins and foreign substances from your lungs and sinuses.
In a study published in the European Respiratory Journal, researchers report that “halotherapy seems to have a positive impact on reducing the exacerbation risk of patients with [COPD]…”
