Allergic reactions are caused by allergens that “invade” the body through inhalation, swallowing, or skin contact. Pollen, mould and dust are common allergens. Regardless of the type of allergy, symptoms are usually similar: nasal congestion, runny nose, itchy or watery eyes, chest congestion, cough, wheezing, laboured and /or shallow breathing.
Halotherapy can help alleviate allergies because salt is a well-known decongestant. As a result of its cleansing activity, inflammation of the airway passages can be reduced, restoring the normal flow of air and mucus. In turn, the respiratory system is better equipped to eliminate foreign allergens or residues at a faster rate.
