Salt Therapy Benefits Children Too
According to the European Respiratory Review: The Respiratory Professional’s Quarterly Update on Medicine, Science and Surgery, climate change poses a serious threat to respiratory health by “directly promoting or aggravating respiratory diseases or by increasing exposure to risk factors for respiratory disease.” Citing climate change as a factor in the increase of pollen and allergens produced by plants, mold proliferation and the concentrations of outdoor ozone, as well as particulate air pollution that is a complex mixture containing dust, pollen, smoke and liquid droplets, the review notes that at particular risk are individuals with asthma, rhinosinusitis (infection or irritation in the sinus lining), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and respiratory tract infections. The populations most affected include infants, children, the elderly and those with compromised immune systems.
In European countries, the benefits of salt therapy for adults have long been noted for respiratory and skin conditions. Today, dry aerosol halotherapy (salt therapy), which is 100 percent natural, safe and effective, is also highly recommended for children with these health challenges. Research results published in Europe PubMed Central show that 85 to 95 percent of children became symptom-free after only a few therapy sessions, and parents noted that even after 10 to 12 months, significant improvement continued. Additionally, regular medication was reduced by 65 to 75 percent.
“Children can begin salt therapy as early as six months,” says Dariusz Klentak, co-owner of the Salt Therapy Grotto, in Naples.
The Salt Therapy Grotto located in Cambridge Square Offices at 3443 Pine Ridge Rd. Unit 102, Naples, features the Kids Salt Cave, which is especially designed for children to play as they would on a beach, while reaping the benefits of salt therapy.
