Salt Therapy and Respiratory Health: How to Purify the Air in Your Home Naturally

Say it with me:
Clean air is not a privilege; it’s a fundamental human right! 

Clean air is essential for our overall well-being, but in recent times, indoor air quality has become a significant concern due to factors like wildfires and environmental pollutants. Because of recent air quality issues, ensuring the safety and purity of our indoor environments has become more important than ever. 

In light of recent events, the focus of our August free training event has been shifted to prioritize air purification safety.

In-Home Air Purification: Your Top Options 

  1. High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) Filters

HEPA filters are renowned for their high efficiency in trapping airborne particles, making them an excellent choice for allergy sufferers and those seeking cleaner air. These filters can capture particles as small as 0.3 microns with an efficiency of 99.97%, including dust, pollen, pet dander, mold spores, and even some bacteria and viruses. As the air passes through the HEPA filter, the particles become trapped in the dense fibers, effectively removing them from the air.

  1. Activated Carbon Filters

Activated carbon filters excel at absorbing odors, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and harmful gasses present in the air. These filters are created by treating carbon with oxygen. As the air passes through the activated carbon filter, the impurities become trapped within the porous structure, leaving the air smelling fresh and clean.

  1. Salt Air Purification: The Unique Approach

When it comes to air purification, we often think of HEPA and activated carbon filters as the go-to solutions. But have you heard of the fascinating world of salt air purification? Salt brings a whole new dimension to the process with its natural hygroscopic properties. This means salt can attract and absorb water molecules from the air, making it an excellent impurity and allergen trapper. 

As an added bonus, salt air purification also delivers the benefits of salt therapy, making the air not just clean but invigorating!

How Salt Air Purification Works

In a salt-based air purifier, such as our 2-in-1 Air Purification and Disinfection Device, air is drawn inside the unit through a specifically designed electrode settlement system. As the air passes through this system, air pollutants, including dust, pollen, and other harmful particles, are collected and removed from the air.

Additionally, during operation, it produces a minimal amount of ozone, which further enhances its disinfection capabilities. Ozone neutralizes airborne pathogens, such as bacteria and viruses, contributing to a healthier living space.

Salt Therapy and Respiratory Health

Salt therapy, also known as halotherapy, has gained popularity for its potential benefits in alleviating respiratory issues, especially in those with asthma and allergies.

A study published in the journal Pediatric Pulmonology in 2017 explored the effects of dry salt aerosol inhalation in children with mild to moderate asthma. The researchers found that salt therapy significantly improved lung function and reduced the need for rescue medications. The study suggested that salt therapy may positively impact respiratory health.

For those facing occupational chronic obstructive lung disease (COLD), there’s a groundbreaking therapy called Controlled Halotherapy. In a study involving COLD patients, the therapy led to remarkable improvements, with 40% experiencing relief in mild cases and 30% in moderate cases. This natural and innovative approach offers hope for better respiratory health.

These outcomes are nothing short of amazing! 

Additional Benefits of Natural Air Purification Using Salt

Beyond its role in air purification safety, salt offers several other reported benefits for your health:

  • Enhanced Sleep: Salt lamps’ soft, warm glow can create a relaxing ambiance, promoting better sleep and reducing stress levels.
  • Mood Enhancement: Some studies suggest that negative ions produced by salt lamps can positively affect mood and mental well-being, reducing anxiety and depression symptoms.
  • Boosted Immune Function: Cleaner air can lead to a healthier living environment, potentially bolstering immune function and reducing the risk of respiratory infections.
  • Allergy Symptom Relief: Salt therapy may help alleviate allergy symptoms by reducing inflammation and irritation in the respiratory system.

Who Benefits From Salt Therapy?

Now, who can benefit from this salt therapy? It’s not just for adults – kids, athletes, and even our furry friends can also experience its benefits. Halotherapy is natural, safe, and has no known side effects. It’s completely passive; all you have to do is breathe! 

Natural Air Purification At Home: A Priority 

In summary, here’s what we learned…Indoor air quality plays a crucial role in our overall health, making effective air purification critical. An innovative solution, salt air purification, stands out as a unique and natural approach, offering exceptional benefits beyond traditional filtration methods.

Salt’s rich spiritual symbolism and healing properties introduce a new dimension to air purification. Thanks to its hygroscopic nature, salt can attract and absorb water molecules, effectively capturing impurities and allergens present in the air. Additionally, salt air purification adds the valuable bonus of salt therapy, known for its respiratory health benefits, especially for those with asthma and allergies.

For an in-depth exploration of this enlightening topic, we invite you to join our upcoming Free Training Webinar on Natural Air Purification Using Salt, scheduled for August 16th. 

You can participate in person at the Pain Free For Life Support Group or virtually through Zoom, as we uncover the remarkable power of salt in creating a cleaner and healthier home environment.

We hope to see you there!
