Salt Therapy May Ease Your Sinus Infection Symptoms By Opening The Blockages In The Sinus Tract
The salt particles reach inwards and draw out the fluid accelerating the pace of mucus clearance. It may reduce edema of the nasal mucosa, causing nasal blockage which in turn leads to widening of the airway passage in the nose and the tubes of the sinuses facilitating sinus drainage. Salt therapy also reduces infection by killing bacteria. Your dependence on prescription drugs may diminish. It might also bolster up your immune system. A complete treatment regiment of 5-15 sessions may provide benefits for as long as 6-12 months.
For our clients with severe sinus problems, we have unlimited session visits available. We have clients that have been free of sinus infections for the first time in years by committing to coming to one session of salt therapy a week. According to Carmen H, who went in for salt therapy to treat his sinus problem “The first day I came I could hardly breathe through my nose and I was constantly swallowing the mucous. After the first session, I felt less congested, could breathe better during the night. I came regularly for the sessions and after several treatments, the pressure became less on my sinuses also my headache has gone.”

What Is A Sinus Infection?
Sinus infections are actually an infection or inflammation behind the cheekbones or forehead which are called sinuses. It is caused by bacteria or viruses. The infection takes place when mucus accumulates in the sinuses. Sinus Infections can also be caused by allergens present in the environment. Some of the symptoms associated with sinus infections are headache, stuffy nose, and thick nasal secretions that are yellow, green, or blood-tinged.
Other symptoms include breathing difficulty, fatigue, cough which may be severe at night, decreased sense of smell sore throat, and bad breath.
