Efficacy of therapeutic use of ultrasound and sinusoidal modulated currents combed with halotherapy in patient with occupational toxic-dust bronchitis

 

According to a 2014 CDC Report, bronchitis is a major health issue given the number of persons who have contracted bronchitis:

  • Number of adults with diagnosed chronic bronchitis in the past year: 8.7 million

  • Percent of adults with diagnosed chronic bronchitis in the past year: 3.6%

If left untreated, this can result in hospitalization with the average length of stay with ​chronic bronchitis as first-listed diagnosis being 4.5 days.  Over 600,000 persons were admitted to hospital in 2014 with chronic bronchitis.

Salt cleanses the respiratory system and speeds up the elimination of toxins. Salt has the following properties:

  • Antibacterial

  • Anti-inflammatory

  • Loosens excessive mucus and speeds up mucociliary transport

  • Removes pathogens (ie., airborne pollen)

  • Reduces IgE level (immune system oversensitivity)

 

Pharmaceutical grade sodium chloride is released by the halogenerator into the salt cave allowing participants to breathe in the salty air. Anecdotal reports show that some persons suffering from chronic bronchitis who do a halotherapy course may result in:

  • Reduction in the need for inhalers, steroids and antibiotics

  • Breathing is easier after just a few sessions

  • Improved lung function

  • Reduction in the number of hospital admissions

  • Alleviates sneezing, coughing, and shortness of breath

  • Clears mucus and sticky phlegm from the lungs

  • Increases the resistance to respiratory tract diseases

  • Strengthens the immune system

  • Prolonged remission times

Halotherapy or Salt Therapy is a preferred treatment for bronchitis in Eastern Europe
