How Salt Therapy Can Benefit Your Child

Climate change is causing an increase in respiratory diseases worldwide. There has been an increase in allergies, asthma, infectious disease, and cardiovascular disease which is believed to be due to global climate change. Regardless of the reason, the populations most affected include infants, children, the elderly, and those with compromised immune systems. An interest in natural remedies is growing, too. Salt therapy is 100 percent natural, safe, and effective. Read on to find out how Salt Therapy can benefit your child.

Children Prone to Breathing Problems
You probably learned why children get sick easier and more often than adults in health class. Their immune systems take time to develop. But children get illnesses for other reasons, too. For instance, children are prone to:

Breathing problems: Did you know that a child’s respiratory system is still developing until the age of nine?

Nasal problems: A child’s nasal passageway is narrower than an adult, putting them at risk for more frequent and severe colds, the flu, viruses, and other respiratory illnesses.

Lung problems: A child’s lungs are not able to filter large pollutants as successfully as an adult’s.

The Benefits of Salt Therapy
Salt therapy can cleanse and rejuvenate. As your child inhales minute natural Himalayan salt crystals in through their nose and as they pass through their respiratory system the salt works to help reduce inflammation, loosen mucus, eliminate bacteria and other germs, and open clogged passageways. Salt therapy can also reduce skin rashes or other skin-oriented issues such as eczema. The negative ions released by natural salt help ease stress, and make a person feel more calm, and relaxed. This can work to ease hypersensitivity in your child. Regardless of the issue, whether your child is suffering from allergies, a cold, the flu, or frequent ear infections, if you’re looking for a 100 percent natural remedy, try Salt Therapy to ease their stress and discomfort.

A Child’s Immunity
Up until about three to five years of age, children are still being protected from their mother’s antibodies. From that point on, however, their bodies begin to defend them from illness without this protection. That is why children seem to catch every bug and virus known to man beginning with preschool and continuing until high school.

Children also do not wash their hands often enough, and properly. This contributes to illness as well. During summer camp, other summer travels, sports, having fun at waterparks, etc. your children will be exposed to millions upon millions of germs, but you can help them fight off these germs by bringing them to the Kids Salt Cave.

In many cases of poor health children are considered as if they were small adults. This is not appropriate. There are several reasons why young children may be more at risk of respiratory illnesses.

Childrens’ lungs, immune system and brain are immature at birth and continue to rapidly develop until approximately age 6, and the cell layer lining the inside of the respiratory tract is particularly permeable during this period. Compared to adults, children also have a larger lung surface area in relation to their body weight, and breathe 50% more air per kilogram of body weight. When a child is exercising at maximum levels, such as during a soccer game or other sports event, they may take in 20 percent to 50 percent more air – and more air pollution – than an adult in comparable activity.

Additionally, children tend to spend more time outdoors and are often outdoors during periods when air pollution is at its highest and they are closer to the ground where generally the air is even more polluted. The process of early growth and development is important for the health of the child, and therefore may also be a critical time when exposure to air pollution can have a lasting effect on future health. Why not help them avoid serious respiratory illnesses with the power of the best Salt Therapy? Don’t risk their health.

Salt therapy is a 100 percent natural, holistic way to boost your immunity and is becoming a popular prevention aid. Salt therapy can help combat colds, flu, respiratory ailments, allergies, and more, by strengthening the immune system. Research has been conducted regarding the effects of salt therapy on children attending institutions of general education confirming the therapeutic and prophylactic (meaning it prevents the spread or occurrence of disease or infection) effects of salt therapy on children.

Clinical trials have shown that children react very quickly, effectively and intensively to natural healing methods. The effectiveness of Salt Therapy is directly observable and highly recommended for all paediatric respiratory and skin conditions. Studies have shown that 85- 95% of children became symptom-free after only a few therapy sessions. This effect is long-term.
